Hairs from the head are used for the process of transplantation generally, but some patients do not have enough hair on the scalp to achieve the results. Then, to achieve the desired result, the hairs from the body can be extracted. They can be taken from the patient’s arms, his back, his legs or even chest. Due to body hairs, better hair thickness can be achieved. They are extracted by the FUE technique and leave no scars.
Advantages of BHT:
- The body to head transplant has many advantages. For the patients who suffer from severe baldness, it’s impractical to achieve 100 % results without having enough donor hair to fill up the bald patches on the scalp.
- It provides you a large donor area.

Disadvantages of BHT:
BHT is time consuming and special instruments are needed to perform this method and performed under the general anesthesia and light sedation. After injecting the anesthesia in the patient’s scalp, the surgeon will implant strips of skin from the donor areas of the body (chest, armpits or legs etc). The surgeon uses the magnifying glass to enlarge the picture, and then single hair strands are taken from these sites and put into containers to prevent them from any damage. After that, the doctor slices the pieces into smaller ones and punctures the recipient sites with the help of needles.The hair of the donor site must be 3 mm long. To collect the hair follicles from body parts, a special needle of diameter 0, 75 millimeter is used. After the completion of this method, the sites are bandaged to avoid any damage or infection. Shampooing is not allowed for two days and medicines are given for sleep sometimes. The donor site usually heals within 6 days. New hair grows within three months and you can resume your routine within a week.
However, body to hair transplant requires extra care and only some expert can carry out this procedure well. Consult the doctor before going through this surgery and discuss the sessions and other things before. Your choice of technique highly depends upon the amount of grafts (to be transplanted), the texture of your body and head hair, Budget, Hair density, your type of hair loss and many more. This procedure is expensive than other transplants and is not considerable if you have enough donor area on the scalp. However, BHT or body hair transplant is cheaper in Pakistan than UK or England.
