In 2005, My Hair Clinic was one of the first clinics worldwide to perform a 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 a scalp-hair transplant. In such cases, My Hair Clinic offers treatments that can improve density, the treatments include Platelet-Rich-Plasma (PRP), Microneedling and treatment with topical Minoxidil 5%. These medical procedures that are used to combat hair loss only work as long as the treatment is continued, keep in mind that the effects are not permanent. If the treatment stops, results stop!
If the patient desires more density and scalp-hair is unavailable, then BHT may be the best – and in some cases the only – option. In some cases the baldness may be very extensive and availability of scalp-hair too limited to achieve the desired result, in these scenarios BHT saves the day.
Results from BHT
It is important not to consider BHT as 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.
Furthermore, 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 as compared to a 1000 scalp-hair grafts. However, it may be the only option available.
