Many people who want to restore hair on the scalp do not have a good quantity of healthy follicles at the back of the head to harvest and transplant. It is possible in these cases to restore balding or thinning areas with body hair transplants, a groundbreaking hair restoration procedure.
How do body hair transplants work?
With typical hair transplant procedures, the follicles are harvested from a donor area at the back of the head, where they are not genetically programmed for balding. In some cases, the hair is too thin or balding, with too few hairs to be a viable harvest area.
In these cases, hair follicles can be harvested from other parts of the body and transplanted to the scalp, brows, beard, or sideburns. In these advanced hair restoration techniques, Dr. Berkowitz will extract hair grafts from other areas of the body with healthy follicles. The procedure is as follows:
- The donor body area is shaved for easy extraction of healthy follicles.
- Hair grafts are carefully extracted from the donor area, after the area has been numbed with local anesthesia for comfort.
- The hairs can be extracted with the NeoGraft tool for fast, accurate harvesting and minimal trauma to the donor body area and hair follicles.
- The hairs selected for transplant are then placed in the balding or thinning scalp or facial area.
