Hair loss is one of the most irritating and niggling problems in a person’s life. But thanks to the advances of medical science, there are a lot of ways to treat this problem. Don’t worry if no medication worked for you to stop your hair loss and now you gone bald; because there are different methods of hair transplantation to solve this problem. Methods of hair transplant are so various; and due to this fact, you should consult with a specialist to see which one suit you the best. In this article we will give you some information about BHT hair transplant. So read the rest to see what is this method.
Surgeons usually use the hair on the scalp for transplant purposes. However, patients sometimes do not have enough hair on their head to achieve the desired result. In such cases, specialists may use body hair, as it is very similar in structure and quality to scalp hair. This hair may be from the legs, arms, abdomen, chest, back, armpits and even the face. And they call this method BHT hair transplantation.
For some hair transplant applicants, body hair can be a source of several thousand extra helpful transplants, especially when patients have a lot of body hair. This area is especially suitable for increasing the overall density of the hair or filling the crown area. However, surgeons don’t use body hair transplants to completely regenerate the hair or restore the patient’s hairline.
hey use FIT method to remove the body hair; so it leaves no linear scars. Body hair transplants are placed in the same way as hair transplants.
In general, surgeons pull the donor hair from the back or side of the head. Patients who do not have enough hair in the donor area (hair bank) are not suitable for a normal transplant. Reasons for not having enough hair include natural hair loss or the result of a previous hair transplant, which makes any extra extraction from the donor part of the head impossible.
The results of hair transplants with unsuitable donor hair are generally unsatisfactory; because they can only partially compensate for hair loss. In addition, any scars will be visible.
The donor indicator is the chest and specialists call it TDI. This method, which they use to evaluate the donor area for body hair transplantation, has five indicators:
If the thoracic donor index is less than 4, the patient is not suitable for body hair transplantation. Patients with a TDI score between 5-7 may be appropriate under certain conditions. Patients with a score of 8 or more have more body hair than the scalp, which is suitable for loading donors are good candidates for body hair transplants. The best area for body hair transplantation is the beard area. In fact, the question of most applicants about whether hair transplantation from the beard to the head is possible with our positive answer.
The body hair transplant technique is derived from the FIT hair transplant method; and basically involves extending the donor area to the entire body. Specialists primarily use BHT hair transplant in cases where the donor area in the head is no longer suitable; or sufficiently dense to extract donor material.
In such cases, and if the physical needs are met, the follicular units can be extracted directly from different parts of the body and attached to the scalp. The BHT-FIT method offers new opportunities; and especially for people whose donor areas have been overused or even lost due to obsolete methods.
BHT candidates must have certain physiological conditions, so that body hair must be suitable for use on the scalp. Body hair enters different growth cycles. Although no one have proved these changes scientifically over time, our own experience points to this.
Grafts that your surgeos take from the body are anatomically different from hair that they took from the head. While grafts from the head generally contain 1, 2, or 3 hairs, in most cases, body grafts have only one hair.
As a method, body hair transplantation has not yet been the subject of much research as much as the FIT and FUT methods. Due to lack of experience and knowledge, you should consider BHT as a last resort to improve the current situation.
Our experience to date indicates a 70 to 80 percent survival rate. This may seem like a small amount, but for many patients this is the only option. Patients wishing to have a BHT hair transplant should be aware of the fact that there is no certainty that a high percentage of implants will be eradicated.
Body hair can change it’s structure after transplantation; in most cases, they become longer and smoother, which interestingly take over the structure of the hair. Patients wishing to receive BHT treatment should be aware of the fact that this type of treatment is a last resort; and also, the probability of it’s success is unpredictable. This means that patients undergoing hair transplantation must meet certain criteria, including the TDI listed above. Under certain circumstances, this treatment may also be appropriate for patients who have already had a transplant; or those whose results appear completely abnormal, and normal life is impossible.
This means that any patient who wants to have a BHT hair transplant should talk to their specialist about it. Likewise, the operation should be performed by a fully qualified hair surgeon; because the success of body hair transplantation depends on the experience, knowledge and ability of the surgeon.
