There are many options available with new hair transplant technology. Not only can hair follicles be transferred from one area of the scalp to another, body hair can also be transplanted. This includes body hair to the scalp or scalp hair to the body. At City Facial Plastics, we offer many types of hair transplant procedures using the most advanced methods and technology, including body hair transplants.
Dr. Gary Linkov is an experienced facial plastic surgeon who also specializes in advanced hair restoration techniques. He uses the latest FUE technology to individually transplant hair follicles to create new or thicker hair in the desired location. This includes using body hair or adding hair to areas on the body. The technique used is the same as scalp-to-scalp transplants. It just involves different areas where hair is harvested or transplanted.
Scalp to Body Transplants
Some people want more body hair to feel more confident about how they look. This could mean a hairy chest or thicker pubic hair. To perform body hair transplants, follicles can be removed from the scalp or other areas of the body, then transplanted to the desired area. Dr. Linkov finds the most appropriate donor site to create the desired hair type and appearance.
Body Hair to Scalp Transplants
In some cases, there are not enough hair follicles on the scalp to transplant to the thin or balding areas. If the patient has thick body hair on their back, chest or other areas, it may be feasible to transplant body hair to the scalp to create a thicker head of hair. This can have a dual benefit, removing hair from an undesirable location, like the shoulders, to improve the thickness of hair on the scalp.
There are many different options in hair transplants available. If you want thicker hair anywhere on your head or body, come see us at City Facial Plastics. Schedule your hair transplant consultation with Dr. Linkov to learn more about body hair transplant options.
