Body Hair Transplant

Body Hair Transplantation

Hair transplantation is carried out by taking the grafts with hair follicles from the back of the head and transplanting them to the area where there are empty spots. One of the essential factors that guarantee a good outcome in micro FUE hair transplantation is the transplanted area’s density.

If the transplanted hair density is not sufficient, although all other factors are favourable, there may be no satisfactory results.

There may not be enough hair density in the back of the head/donor area for the desired amount of grafts in the people with intense hair loss. At this point, Body Hair Transplant/Transplantation method is applied. This method involves the transplantation of hair grafts taken from the person’s chest, back or beard.

Body Hair Transplantation is performed under local anaesthesia with the FUE hair transplantation method.

The eligibility of the person’s chest area for this procedure is determined by examination. A satisfactory outcome can not be obtained by applying this method alone in people with minimal donor area in the nape area.

Features of Body Hair

There are hairs in various structures and textures in various parts of our body. These are very different from the head’s hair in terms of shape and length, especially in number in their roots.

Hair other than the hair on the head has a different curl depending on where they are located. The hair closest structurally to the hair on the head are in the beard, although they usually have a single root structure, they can grow very quickly and as long as the hair on the head.

For this reason, the first choice in body hair transplantation is the transplantation of the hair taken from the beard. Successful outcomes can be achieved from hair transplantation from the beard, with proper planning. Hair in other areas are generally thinner; they grow slowly and cannot grow as much as a hair on the head or beard. Thus, surgeons do not want to transplant from these areas unless they have to.


Surgeons consider some criteria to decide on body hair transplantation:

– If it is thought that sufficient density can be achieved with hair taken from other parts of the body. Hair transplantation treatment can be performed with the Body Hair Transplant method in people whose donor area at the back of the head is insufficient as a supply area in hair transplantation.

The person’s eligibility for hair transplantation with body hair is determined by the doctor’s examination of the areas where the grafts are to be taken. If the hair’s density in these areas is good, and its texture is close to the hair texture or of good quality, the surgeon can approve body hair transplantation for these people.

If these two criteria are not present at the same time, body hair transplantation is not performed.

Planning Body Hair Transplantation and Deciding on Body Hair Transplantation

Good planning made before the operation lies behind every successful Sapphire FUE hair transplant. The surface size of the area where the hair will be transplanted is determined and the number of grafts to be placed in this area is calculated with the formula: (desired graft density) x (cm2).

Although the number of grafts taken from the donor area can be predicted to a great extent before the transplantation is completed, sometimes it may be necessary to review the operation plan according to the number of grafts taken. At this stage, the surgeon may decide for body hair transplantation if a sufficient number of grafts can not be obtained from the donor area, or cancellation if the number is adequate.

How is Body Hair Transplantation Performed?

Body Hair Transplant technique is the same as standard Fue hair transplantation. Local anaesthesia is applied to the donor area. During regional anaesthesia, the person may experience some pain according to their pain threshold due to medicine, and this pain usually lasts 1-2 seconds.

Afterwards, there should be absolutely no pain while performing the FUE procedure. The time is shorter than the transplantation from the usual donor area. It is crucial to distribute the grafts taken from the body during the transplantation process among the grafts taken from the donor area with the Micro Fue method.

Suppose the grafts taken from the body are transplanted in a particular site. In that case, this area will be seen differently and unnaturally because the body hair will be different from regular hair.

When Does My Hair Grow After The Body Hair Transplantation?

Hair transplanted through body hair transplantation begins to grow in the first three weeks, just like the hair transplanted after FUE hair transplantation. 3-4 weeks after the hair transplant operation, shock shedding begins, and the transplanted hair disappears by almost 90%. New hair after the procedure starts to grow again in the 6’th month. 70-80% of the result is seen at the end of the 1st year. It may take 1.5-2 years for the full effect to manifest itself.
