Humans usually have hair follicles throughout their body. Females usually have less dense body hair than men, but it also depends on different genetics. We usually consider the hair on our head as the most important and visibly attracting. You have heard of hair transplant for regaining a head full of hair or at least visibly full of hair. Usually, in hair transplant, hair follicles from the back of your head are transplanted on front and top of your head. But what if hair density on back of your head is not sufficient? Can a person transplant hairs from other parts of the body too?
Transplanting body hair follicles on the scalp
Transplanting hairs from different parts of the body onto your head is now possible after several years of research all over the world. Earlier it was feared that hair from body parts will get rejected by the scalp. But with proper anti-rejection drugs and precise technology, this has been made possible. The process is called Body Hair Transplant and is very useful when there are not enough hair follicles on the back of the scalp to opt for traditional transplant methods. Hair from beard areas, back, chest and even armpits can be used for this purpose. Usually, beard hair follicles are preferred because scalp hair follicles are very similar to them.
This transplant method can also be used in combination with traditional one for achieving denser hair results. Also for filling specific bald spots, this method proves to be the best option.
