A Natural Looking Body Hair Transplant in Glasgow

Utilising hairs from the scalp, a Body Hair Transplant (BHT) is a procedure designed for people with thin or no hairs at all on the chest, abdomen, or pubic area due to genetic predisposition or prior laser removal.

At our hair transplant clinic in Glasgow, we offer a state-of-the-art Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant, whereby suitable hair follicles are extracted from the head and directly implanted in the desired areas. As with a traditional hair transplant, the donor hair is removed inconspicuously and helps to restore a natural look and improve body hair density.

The term also describes the use of body hairs to provide additional grafts for a scalp hair transplant when there is not enough donor hair available on the head. A BHT, in this context, is useful for men who have depleted most, if not all, of the available scalp donor hair due to previous hair transplants.

A BHT procedure is also helpful for those who suffer from advanced grades of androgenetic alopecia, resulting in advanced hair loss and severe baldness, even in the donor area. In such cases, donor scalp hair is not substantial enough to provide complete or optimal coverage of the balding scalp, and surgeons compensate for this by relying on body hair extraction, also known as body hair grafts.

Body Hair Transplant FAQs

Are you considering a body hair transplant in the UK? We offer safe hair transplants at our Glasgow clinic. Below are our answers to some commonly asked questions to help better inform you if your hair loss treatment options.

What is a body FUE hair transplant treatment?

Understanding how body hair transplants work is key to deciding whether the procedure is the right option for you. Similarly to standard head hair transplants, the body hair transplants at our hair transplant clinic are done using the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. 

The FUE method uses tiny punches with a diameter between 0.6 mm and 1 mm to extract hair follicles from the scalp donor area. Unlike the follicular unit transplantation (FUT) method, which utilises a full strip of existing scalp hair in the donor area, this minimises trauma and ensures only suitable donor hair follicles are harvested for your body hair transplant.

The individual follicles of the extracted hairs are then implanted in the recipient areas using hair implanter pens with a graft placement technique known as Direct Hair Implantation. The use of this pen’s sharp implanter tip enables the hair transplant surgeon, Dr Bonaros, to swiftly and easily implant the follicular units in the right direction and angle according to the patient’s hair growth pattern. This precise method ensures your body hair grows in a natural way, thereby achieving the most aesthetic body hair transplant results possible.

What are the common treatment areas for FUE body hair transplants?

The three common FUE hair transplant surgery options for combatting thinning hair and replacing hair loss on the human body include:

  • FUE chest hair transplant

  • FUE pubic hair transplant

  • FUE abdomen transplant

If it’s sparse beard hair that worries you, we also offer facial hair restoration, including beard hair transplants. Where you choose to have your hair restoration treatments will depend on where your balding is most prominent. As a trusted hair surgeon, Dr Bonoros can advise you on the best treatment for you.

Are FUE hair transplant procedures painful?

Our FUE body hair transplantation is a minimally invasive surgical procedure that is performed under local anaesthetic. This means you will be awake during the body hair transplant procedure but will feel very little pain.

To avoid the discomfort of anaesthetic injections, we use a Kinetic Anaesthesia Device, a state-of-the-art device that diminishes this discomfort to ensure your BHT transplant is a quick and comfortable procedure.

Is a hair transplant for body hair permanent?

Yes — when you transplant hair with our FUE procedure for body hair, you get a permanent solution for hair loss and hair thinning on various parts of your body.

That being said, even the best body hair transplant surgeon cannot prevent future hair loss, particularly around the recipient areas. This means that even though the transplanted hair will grow permanently, there is still a chance that patients will continue to lose pre-existing hair.

Who will perform my FUE hair transplant procedure?

Hair transplant techniques and procedures require precision and expertise. Body hair transplants should be carried out by experienced specialists at registered clinics, such as our hair transplant clinic in Scotland.

Dr Bonaros has a passion for delivering personalised care and will perform your entire body hair FUE transplant procedure as the lead surgeon. With such an experienced hair transplant surgeon at the fore, you can rest assured that your body hair will be transplanted with the utmost attention to detail for the most natural looking results. 

How much does a body hair transplant cost?

Many patients want to know ahead of time how much their body hair transplantation will cost. However, just as each patient is different, so is each body hair transplant. Some patients may want drastic chest hair transplant before and after results, while others may choose to have a more subtle pubic hair or beard transplant.

Since we replenish chest hairs, beard hairs and any other body hair with grafts harvested from a donor area, body hair transplantation costs are determined by the number of hair grafts required, as well as how many treatment days are needed.

The cost of a bodily hair transplant in Glasgow will vary between hair transplant clinics. Dr Bonaros offers tailored treatment plans, meaning the cost of a body hair transplant procedure is based on the specific hair loss issues of each patient.

How long is the BHT procedure?

A FUE hair transplant in Scotland and the greater UK is typically a more intricate procedure than a follicular unit transplant. Therefore, it may take longer to perform.

The duration of the FUE transplant will depend on how extensive the baldness is and which area you want to transplant body hair to. For instance, you may want a hair transplant for chest hair, which is a large area, or a hair transplant for pubic hair, which is a smaller area. Ultimately, it depends on how many follicles are required. Most body hair transplants can vary between two to eight hours.

How long is the recovery period for body hair transplants?

As with all hair transplants, the recovery period for a body hair transplant varies between patients.

Before leaving our clinic after your procedure, you will be provided with detailed instructions for a smooth recovery and aftercare process for your transplanted body hair. Whether you want chest hair implants or a body hair transplant in another area, you are in good hands at our clinic.
