Body Hair Transplant

One of the most embarrassing things for a man to hear is ‘Oh he does not hair on is head, he is growing old.’ For the modern male, the ability to maintain a hair full of scalp is often associated as a sign of masculinity. Early signs of hair loss such as a receding hairline or a bald patch on the scalp results in emotional trauma of being called ‘uncle’ even by your peers.  No man likes being judged for his lack of hair and for this reason, we offer body hair transplantation treatment in India for men looking to rein in the hair loss and regain their masculinity and ultimately their confidence.

Body hair transplant in India essentially means using hair from the other parts of the body and transplanting them on the scalp. Usually in simple hair transplant or hair restoration procedures the donor hair is taken from the back of the scalp and implanted in the balding areas but in some cases when there is not enough graph available from scalp area, then hair transplant surgeons take donor hair from alternative areas of the body such as the beard and chest and use them for the purpose of transplantation on the head.  By harvesting hair follicles from other parts of the body, the hair transplant expert gets a large number of grafts that can be used to implement a higher density of implantation.

Body hair transplant surgery is a minimally invasive procedure with short recovery time. The expert team at The Esthetic Clinics India uses robotic tools such as the third generation tools that reduces the surgery time considerably and ensures precise micro grafting.

Benefits of Body Hair Transplantation

Body hair transplant surgery is a relatively new procedure but is fast becoming very popular amongst males. In addition to giving a ray of hope for men who are not suitable candidate for traditional hair transplant, body hair transplant also

  • Helps the hair transplant surgeon in India achieve great density of hair in patients with weak donor area on scalp
  • Used for filling large areas of bald patch
  • Used for correction/repair hair transplant

Are you eligible for Body Hair Transplantation?

When determining the eligibility of body hair transplant (BHT) in India the prime concern is the reason of hair loss and the second is your expectations from results of the BHT procedure.  There are many reasons because of which you might not have enough hair on the donor area of your scalp such as

  • Trauma: Physical Trauma to the scalp such as road accident, burns, and surgical procedures can cause permanent damage to the hair follicles and expend the hair loss phase.
  • Genetics: If you are genetically predisposed to hair loss just like your forefathers then it can one of the reasons that you are looking hair from scalp and other parts of the body.
  • Stress: Change of jobs, a personal life upheaval, sudden changes in diet and routines unbalance the body hormones and can lead to changes in hair growth cycle and affect the quality of the hair.
  • Medication: Some medications can cause hair loss but in most cases, it is temporary.
  • Nutritional deficiency: Not eating the right nutrients can also cause the hair loss. Nutritional deficiency in vitamin A, B-12, C & D, iron and zinc can cause the hair to weaken and the follicles to shrink.

Hair loss can happen on the entire body or can be from a more localized area. Top hair transplant surgeons in India will examine your hair loss, the lifestyle and try to determine the exact cause of hair loss to that it can be decided if body hair transplant is the right choice for you or not.  Our surgeons at The Esthetic Clinics India are highly skilled and most sought after in the country and internationally and are well versed with all nuances of body hair transplants to ensure that you get the best possible results.

Different between scalp hair and body hair

The hair on the scalp is not the same as the rest of the body hair and therefore body hair transplantation requires special attention and skill on the part of the physician to match the density of the scalp hair and still retain the natural look. Body hair differ from scalp hair in the following points:

  • Out of the 5 million hair follicles on the body only one hundred thousand are on the scalp
  • Scalp hair grow longer than the rest of the body
  • The rest phase of the hair on the scalp is highest in the body
  • The hair on the scalp is thicker than the rest of the body.
  • Body hair follows the same hair growth pattern as that of the scalp but they have short hair growth phase and therefore the results of BHT take some time to be visible.

The hair on the beard is the second best choice for body hair transplant in India and the chest, abdomen, shoulder, torso, legs, arms, underarms or pubic hair comes in next. The beard hair is closest to scalp hair in terms of texture, colour, length, and behaviour. Best body hair transplant surgeons in India match the characteristics of donor hair and recipient area to provide the requisite density and coverage of the scalp.

Body Hair Transplantation Procedure:

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Direct Hair Transplantation is the preferred method for body hair transplant in India. Hair are individually extracted from the donor site (beard or other body part) using various sized punches and then implanted in the recipient site.  There is very little or no scarring across both areas and there is hardly any downtime.  Here is a basic overview of the body hair transplant procedure in Mumbai:

  • You will need to shave the donor site 5-7 days before the surgery. This will help the surgeons select the fastest growing hair follicles.
  • The donor area will be anesthetized locally before beginning the extraction.
  • If the recipient area is the chest, then the surgeon cannot extract more than 1500 grafts per day and therefore you might need to prepare for a surgery split into several days.
  • While extraction the hair transplant surgeons in Mumbai play a very close attention to the angle of the chest or beard hair otherwise transection can lead to wastage of follicles.
  • The extracted hair are cleaned, separated, and implanted in the donor site.
  • The beard area takes about one week to heal and the chest area takes about two weeks to heal.
  • The transplanted hair at the recipient site will undergo shedding after about three weeks of the body hair transplant surgery in India and then the new hair growth will start after about third month and by the end of the fifth month you will be able to start noticing the new hair growth.

What you need to know about Body Hair Transplantation

Not all people are suitable candidates of for BHT procedures in India and the surgeon will advise you about the advantages and disadvantages of the body hair transplant procedures:

  • Hair follicles on the chest are shorter and weaker and do not grow longer than 5-6 cms.
  • Curly chest hair is most suitable for transplantation on middle and back areas of the head.
  • A big advantage of body hair transplant in India is that you can get rid of the unwanted hair from the body and get a scalp full of hair.
  • Body hair transplantation can also be used to cover the scars left behind by previous surgeries or FUT hair transplant procedures in India.
  • BHT can also be used to even out the hairline and give it a more natural look.
  • Body hair can be combines with scalp grafts to give a denser hair growth.

  • The number of grafts needed to give satisfactory results.
