Hair transplant using body hair is called body hair transplantation. In this transplantation process, hair is taken from other parts of the body instead of the frequently used nape area. It is an effective method applied to increase the density in hair transplantation. Body hair has been used since the emergence of the FUE technique. FUE is a hair transplant procedure that involves removing one follicular unit at a time using a hand-held staple and extraction forceps. This makes it an ideal procedure to use donor hair from the body.
BHT is also sometimes applied to patients who do not have enough hair in the nape of the neck. It is preferred for hair transplantation to be more successful.
In hair transplantation, the first preferred donor area after the nape of the neck is beard. Beard hair is very suitable for hair transplantation because it is strong and thick. The part of the face along and below the chin is the best donor area. Beard hairs are best transplanted into the area slightly behind the crown and hairline of the head, perhaps to add thickness in a previously transplanted area. We do not transplant beards to the front hairline, as the hair will not look natural due to its coarseness.
Another donor area that is most commonly used is chest hair. Chest hair is much thinner than facial or scalp hair. Therefore, this makes the front hairline forming a hairy appearance or crown area suitable for more coverage.
There are other areas that can be used as donor hair for hair transplantation. These include the hair of the back, shoulders, arms, armpits, groin and thighs.
It is very important that you do not drink alcohol 7-10 days before hair transplantation in terms of the development and blood supply of the newly implanted hair follicles. You need to stop anticoagulant drugs described as blood thinners a week before the procedure. And you should tell your doctor about the routine medications you use. You should stop consuming products such as cigarettes, tobacco or alcohol one week before the procedure. Do not drink beverages containing caffeine and its derivatives 2 days before hair transplantation. You need to wear comfortable clothes that are easy to remove and have buttons on the front.
If you have a chronic illness or medications that you use continuously, you need to inform your doctor about this. Your doctor will plan the treatment process according to the information he will receive from you.
What needs to be considered after hair transplantation contains more than one substance. Hair transplantation, which can contain many care points from cleaning to nutrition, should be very careful especially during the year after transplantation.
