The body hair transplant is the procedure in which body hairs (beard, chest etc) are taken for transplant to the scalp. This is done by scarless FUE technique as day care procedure . Person having high grade of baldness such as class 7 may not have enough donor hairs at the back and side of the scalp (only 12500 hairs out of permanent 25000 may be transplanted). So the BHT is the only option for hair restoration for such cases. Now with the advancement in technique and better tools, the follicular unit extraction method can utilize the body hairs as a donor site for transplant to scalp area.
The best candidates for BHT procedure are the patients with abundant hair in such regions as chin, chest, back or legs
