Body Hair Transplant UK

Body Hair Transplant procedures are becoming increasingly popular among men who are lacking a sufficient supply of hair in the donor area over their scalp for hair transplantation, but who do have body hair with high density. Today, many MCAN Health patients with a large balding recipient area but with a limited donor area on their scalp, are asking if their body hair can be implanted to their balding scalp. The term body-hair transplantation does not include beard to hair transplantation. Beard is the first choice as a donor area for the transplantation. The success rate of beard to hair transplants is much higher than rest-of-the-body hair transplantation. Body and scalp hair is very different which causes problems with a Body Hair Transplantation technique. On the body, the follicles are deeper, and the orientation is different from the scalp. The type of hair is also different, usually wirier, often curlier and it will grow to a maximum length of around 5 centimetres. Any patient undergoing Body Hair Transplantation needs to understand that the transplanted hair will retain its original characteristics, which will determine the overall aesthetics of the hair.

What is the Body Transplant Procedure?

Body hair varies from scalp hair, for one the average number of hairs per follicular unit is lower; scalp hair 2.2 hairs per unit, body hair a little over 1 hair per unit. When transplanting to the scalp there can be variants in the hair qualities such as hair coarseness, or hair growth length, but on the right candidate can give excellent results. Body hair units are carefully extracted with Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. The FUE technique is one of the most innovative treatments in hair replacement therapy, this method of extraction requires our skill hair transplant doctors removing hair follicles from a patient’s donor area individually one at a time and implanting them into the bald/recipient areas, creating more dense hair in the balding areas. The main benefit of carrying out this procedure is that it does not leave a singular linear hair transplant scar. FUE hair transplant is also considered to be the least invasive hair transplant procedure. Regardless if Body Hair is being used to rebuild a better-looking quality of chest hair or helping with scalp hair restoration professional advice is always required. The specialist team at FUE Clinics offers the specialist treatment at our clinics across the UK, if you feel as though this treatment is something to consider for yourself, then don’t hesitate to get in touch with our team today and see how FUE clinics can help you.

Eyebrow Transplants – What to Expect?

The eyebrow procedure is straightforward and requires no prolonged hospital stay and only a local anaesthetic, an eyebrow transplant is a relatively simple process. The surgeon will work with extreme accuracy and precision in order to achieve great results. On average between 250 and 400 individual hairs are required per eyebrow in order to obtain a natural, healthy-looking brow. Depending on the size and appearance of the current eyebrow as well as the look you are hoping to achieve, this actual number could vary. Each hair needs to be transplanted following the natural growth direction of the other hairs of the eyebrow, making sure that they lie flat against the skin. To achieve an even and full look to the eyebrow, the hairs also need to be placed very tightly together. To make sure that there is no scarring to both the head and the recipient’s eyebrow tiny needles are used to remove the donor hair follicles. Typically, donor hair follicles are removed from the area behind the ears. Small needles, just a few millimetres in diameter are then used to implant the hairs one at a time; this is a meticulous process. A local anaesthetic is administered before the procedure so that the patient is able to relax and in order to avoid discomfort. There is no need, however, to remain in the clinic following the transplant – the patient can return home to recover.

Am I eligible for a Body Transplant Procedure?

You might find yourself asking ’Do I Need a Body Hair Transplant?’ it’s important to consider all of the reasons why you may choose to have a body hair transplant (BHT) procedure and the results you are wanting to achieve overall. Loss of hair from the body whether the entire body or from a more localised area can be caused by a number of reasons. These include:
  • Trauma – Some traumas, including road accidents, burns and the results of surgical procedures, can lead to hair loss in a specific area of the body. This can either be temporary through telogen effluvium, in which the hair is lost quickly but grows back or through damage to the hair follicles, after which the growth cannot return without treatment.
  • Your Genes – If you are genetically predisposed to hair loss, this can affect any part of your body, from your scalp to your facial hair, chest and more.
  • Stress – Stress can often lead our bodies to go through unbalanced hormones, which can speed up the ‘loss’ stages of the hair growth cycle. Changes in diet, illness, weight, and hormones each hold the potential to affect the quality of our hair.
  • Medication – Some medications are known for causing hair loss though in most cases, this is temporary.
  • Nutritional Deficiencies – If you are deficient in certain nutrients – namely vitamins A, B-12, C & D, iron and zinc, you may experience accelerated hair loss or brittle, breakable hair.
After determining the cause of your hair loss, our team of surgeons can guide you on the correct transplant method for your procedure. For more information on how FUE Clinics can help call our team today for a consultation.

Frequently Asked Questions About Body Hair Transplants

Is a Body Hair Transplant Procedure Painful?
Most people are surprised there is virtually no pain during FUE hair transplant procedure done under a local anaesthetic. Mild discomfort may occur as a local anaesthetic is injected into the scalp. Once the skin is properly anesthetised, so there is no pain. After the FUE surgery, patients will typically feel some minor discomfort. It is usually described as minimal. With the STRIP method, there is more pain, with the amount of pain depending on each patient’s individual pain threshold. Medicine can be prescribed to help with any discomfort or pain.
Are There any Risks Involved?
FUE Hair Transplant surgery is considered a minimally invasive and minor procedure. There are rare complications and our doctors easily treat any that may occur. The most frequent question asked by our patients is the extent of post-operative hypopigmentation that may occur as a result of the removal of the hair graft. With STRIP surgery there are potentially more risks and complications because of the more invasive nature of the procedure. They include infections, excessive scarring, a feeling of tightness of the scalp, hair loss in the scar area, nerve pain, bleeding, as well as a chance of damage to the occipital or temporal blood vessels.
How Long Will It Take for Hair to Grow After a Body Transplant?
There is no difference between the STRIP and automated FUE techniques when the hair follicle begins to grow. Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. Results will vary from one to another and it may take up to twelve months for the hair follicle to grow.
What are the Side Effects of Body Hair Transplants?
One of the main sources of concern for many patients who want to go under the hair transplant procedure using body hair is whether they are going to have obvious scars in the body donor area after the procedure. In fact, there are going to be some stitches and scars in the donor area, but these will heal within weeks.
