What is Body Hair Transplantation?
Body hair transplantation (BHT) is a medical procedure through which thick and dense hair from various parts of body are transplanted to areas which lack sufficient hair. Most men tend to have excess hairs in their chest, pubic and other body regions and simultaneously face baldness. In such cases, surgeons transplant unwanted hair from body (donor site) to scalp (recipient site). BHT is a cosmetic process based on Follicular Unit Extraction or FUE technique.
Being a medical treatment, FUE must be performed by experienced surgeons having good expertise in such surgeries. Due to higher mobility of body skin than the skin on scalp, surgeons must extract the follicular units of a lower range of transection. They must also consider the FUE characteristic of an individual and based on such conditions, perform the treatment. Before starting FUE treatment, they must ensure that:
- Major portion of the follicular unit on the body must possess only one kind of hair
- Most of the body hair follicles are in telogen or resting phase (hairs which are fully grown). Based on the area of body, telogen hairs should comprise 40%-70% of total hairs.
While extracting follicles and transplanting hair from body to scalp, surgeons should also use latest surgical equipments and devices. Safe standards of treatment are also essential for more effective results.
FUE transplantation is the most effective way to grow hairs proportionally within the body. It is non-invasive, which means candidates hardly experience any pain or discomfort during the treatment process. It also gives natural looking results.
Why is Anagen Hair detected for Body Hair Transplantation?
Hair in its growth stage is known as anagen. Anagen hairs are most active and its shafts grow quickly in less time. Thus, when the donor sites with anagen hairs are shaved off, the hair follicles are clearly visible. It then becomes easy to extract the follicles from these regions and prepare it for transplantation. Also, since anagen hairs don’t have complete growth at the time of follicle extraction, they can re-grow after few days of shaving.
Hairs which are completely grown and are in the resting phase, i.e. telogen hairs can also work for transplantation. However; new hairs won’t sprout in the shaved areas. Extracting telogen hairs can also potentially damage the dermal papillae. Thus, it’s always better to choose anagen hairs over telogen.
As a good practice, surgeons must shave the donor site at least 3-4 days before the hair transplantation treatment.
