The Facial Body Hair Transplant procedure involves taking hair from the back and sides of the head and transplanting this hair to the chest and/or abdominal areas. Hair can also be transplanted to the pubic and/or axilla areas.
The reason behind the presence of hair on the body could be due to medical, genetic, trauma, accidents, burns, laser hair removal, electrolysis or other factors.
The Facial Hair Transplant procedure involves taking hair from the back and sides of the head and transplanting this hair to the face. This procedure is ideal for those who desire a beard or mustache for cultural, religious or personal reasons. In many cultures, having a beard and/or mustache is synonymous with manhood as well as compliance and compatibility with religious and social customs and culture.
In most cases, the technique employed for facial and body hair transplants by your MAXiM Hair Transplant Physician or Surgeon is the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique although if large areas of the body and face are to be covered, the MAXiM Hair Transplant Physician or Surgeon may recommend the traditional strip (FUT) technique.
The transplanted hair on your body will grow just like the hair on the back and sides of the scalp and will need periodic trimming.
A typical body hair transplant procedure can take four to eight hours depending upon the area that requires coverage. It is performed under local anesthesia although the MAXiM Hair Transplant Physician or Surgeon may recommend alternative forms of anesthesia. Recovery is at home and can take a couple of days.
The transplanted hair generally falls off after a few weeks and will re-grow after four months. You should see results within six months of your body or face hair transplant procedure.
The reverse procedure of transplanting hair from the body to the thinning and balding areas of the scalp is also possible. This is normally done if you have limited donor area on the back and sides of the head due to prior hair transplant sessions or other factors.
