Direct Body Hair Transplant or Direct-BHT is one of our special techniques. In development of Direct-BHT, we worked on generic FUE and improved it. In this technique we use body hair in combination with scalp hair in transplant. This gives us full coverage in case of extreme baldness. We can also use this technique to give Pros and cons Post-op care Rejoice™ Direct-BHT (Body Hair Transplant) you more pleasing hairlines and eyebrows.
The transplant process is the same as Direct-FUE. The only difference is donor area. In Direct-FUE all the donor area is on the scalp. In Direct-BHT donor area can be anywhere on the body.
So the process goes something like this – we extract grafts from donor areas and transplant on desired areas. There’s no time lag between extraction and transplant. You can have 2000–2500 graft transplants per session.
Direct-BHT is a breakthrough technique. This could be a lifesaver for your transplant when you don’t have enough donor supply. Though you need to understand two things about Direct-BHT:
Body hair occurs as one single follicular unit. Unlike scalp hair, which occurs as a group of 2–4 hair. So extra steps go into the extraction and transplant for the same area. Which increases time and cost.
Body hair doesn’t grow to the same length as scalp hair. So you may need to adopt a short hairstyle. New research in this field indicates that body hair can also grow as fast as scalp hair.
