Body Hair Transplant or BHT, entails the same principles of extraction as the FUE technique. However, instead of the scalp, hair is extracted from the body. One common area is the use of beard, chest, abdomen, leg, and arm hair. Recommended for patients with insufficient good scalp donor hair.
While hair from various parts of the body may be an option, the success rate is still lower as compared to using hair from a healthy scalp due to the difference in hair structure and growth rate. Which does affects the compatibility and success rate. However, by far, beard transplants have had a higher rate of success.
