Body Hair Tranplant(B.H.T)
- When the hair roots are harvested from other parts of the body e.g. Beard, Chest, Back, Pubic, Axilla or thighs, etc. & transplanted in the bald scalp or eyebrow/beard/mustaches, it is known as Body Hair Transplant.
- When the scalp hairs are scanty then BHT is done.
Common areas of the body for BHT
- Beard is the most common site for harvesting body hair. 1000 to 2500 hair follicles can be harvested without much visible disfigurement of beard skin. Beard hairs are thicker than scalp hair & can give good coverage of the bald area.
- Chest & abdomen are the next common sites for harvesting body hair. 1000 to 2500 hair follicles can be harvested & donor site is hidden in clothes. Hairs from this part are usually thin, short & different in characteristics than scalp hairs.
