Body hair transplantation, also known as Body Hair Transplant (BHT) is a technique by which hair is extracted from other areas of the body such as the beard, chest, or arms, to later implant it on the head, achieving so put a solution to baldness problems.
At Meyer & Alcaide Hair Dermatology, we resorted to body hair transplantation in those cases in which the patient has extensive alopecia. Why? Due to the insufficiency of follicular units, which makes extraction in the donor area complex? It is, in turn, a complementary method of the FUE technique, since it provides a higher density in the hair.

For the success of the treatment, it is important to analyze the hair of the body area candidate for extraction to ensure that it is compatible. Well, the characteristics of the hair are not the same according to what areas of the body. For this reason, our hair transplant specialists apply it to increase the hair density. That is why, with the Body Hair Transplant technique, the hair is intermingled so that the result achieved is totally natural.
The most effective follicular units of the body are those of the beard since the type of hair is the most similar to that of the head. Likewise, the maximum recommended number for extraction is 800 follicular units.
