In 2005, My Hair Clinic was among the first clinics in the world to perform Body Hair Transplant (BHT). Some patients may have a very limited donor-area or may want a higher density result, than what can be achieved with scalp-hair transplant. In those cases, My Hair Clinic can offer a number of options to improve the density, including Platelet-Rich-Plasma, Microneedling and treatment with the topical Minoxidil 5%. These medical options to combat hair loss only work, as long as the treatment is continued and the effects are not permanent. If treatment stops, results stop!
If the patient desires more density and scalp-hair is unavailable, then BHT may be the best (and only) option. In some cases, the baldness may be very extensive and availability of scalp-hair too limited, to achieve the desired result. Also in these cases, BHT saves the day.
Results from BHT
It is important not to consider BHT an equivalent to a scalp-hair transplant. They are not the same, though the method for harvesting, design and implanting are principally the same.
Body hair has lower density, which means we’ll need to anaesthetise a larger area, to get the same number of grafts.
Further, the growth is usually slower, less dense and the hair is shorter, than scalp-hair.
This means that 1000 body hair grafts, will give you a different result from 1000 scalp-hair grafts. However, it may be the only option available.
