Body hair transplant is a procedure designed to restore hair on the chest, abdomen, axilla or any other body part which requires hair to be transplanted or thicken the density of the hair in that area. The loss of hair could be due to genetics, surgery scar repair, laser hair removal, electrolysis or use of any medication that caused overall body hair loss.
Hair makes a man look masculine and powerful. Some patients go for a thin filling while others may want to have a thicker density of hair on the chest and abdomen area.
- Body Hairs as Donor Hairs
Sometimes body hairs are used as donor’s hairs to provide hairs to the required area. But before we proceed, do you know what donor’s hairs are? Donor’s hairs are the hairs that are extracted through hair transplant techniques to be inserted into areas where there is no or thin hair growth.
But for body hairs to be used as donor hairs on the scalp there are certain considerations that you need to know of, these are:
- Extraction of the hair follicles from the body and what hair transplant technique would be suitable?
- The growth cycle of the body hairs is different from the growth cycle of the scalp hair.
- The compatibility, are body hair of the same color and texture as the scalp hair, so they are suitable enough to be transplanted to the scalp.
Transplantation of Body Hairs
In some patient’s body hair are transplanted to the scalp because of no or limited donor hair available from the scalp due to multiple hair transplant sessions.The technique used to transplant body hairs is FUE, body hair transplant in Dubai is a very challenging and a refined procedure.
Why is it challenging?
Because of the growth angle of hairs and compatibility it sometimes gets tough, and in some patients, the process of extraction of body hairs for a body hair transplant in Dubai is also difficult.
They can also be transplanted to areas of the scar and burns where the hair growth has stopped.
- Donor Hairs Transplanted to the Body
Donor hair come from the scalp. The transplanted hair grows the same way as on the scalp and is somewhat of the same characteristics like body hair. However, after some time they need to be trimmed.
The transplanted hair on the body is natural and permanent. The important factors to taken into consideration for a body hair transplant in Dubai are:
- The extraction of grafts.
- The placement of grafts in the angle of growth of hairs.
- The usage of dissected grafts to the small incisions as to reduce the scarring.
Also, the distribution of gray hairs in the area where transplantation is required is considered as to make the transplant look natural and more even.
But it is also important to consider that in the future these transplanted hairs to the body cannot be used as donor hairs for the scalp to treat any future pattern hair loss, thus meaning fewer donor hairs available.
Procedure of the Body Hair Transplant
The procedure is simple and requires almost 200 to 3400 grafts as per the requirement. The procedure is performed under mild anesthesia to make the patient feel no pain. The duration of the procedure is four to eight hours long. The procedure can be uncomfortable for some patients during transplantation of hairs on the chest.
