Body hair, especially beard hair can be an extra source for donor hair in patients with limited donor availability at the scalp.
The efficiency of BHT is unfortunately overemphasised due to marketing strategies. Body hair, no matter where it is taken from, has a very different character compared to scalp hair; it usually consists of single hairs which means its coverage is less, it is usually finer except beard hair, it grows much slower, it is curly and its growth after transplanting is less predictable. There are also technical difficulties in harvesting body hairs. For all these reasons, body hair transplant should be considered only when donor scalp hair is not sufficient.
It has been shown that beard hair is the best source for BHT. Chest hair appears to be the second best. Other hairs like leg hair could be considered experimental. One advantage of using body hairs is that it can be a great source for patient who are rich with body hair and it can be used many times.
It is possible to transfer about 1000 grafts during a BHT session that takes about 8 hours.
Typical situations when body hair transplant may be useful are, patients with severe hair loss and multiple previous hair surgeries. Body hairs may be used to increase density at the scalp or to camouflage existing scars.
