Can You Transplant Hair From Other Parts of The Body?
In standards hair transplant techniques hair grafts are extracted from the patients donor area in the back of his/her head, which commonly have top hair density. In transplants using body hair physician extract grafts from other areas of the body. Hair grafts are going to be extracted directly from the donor place under local anesthesia using a little tool that is between 0.75ml and 1ml or a pretty thicker. The doctor makes a circular incision within the skin surrounding the graft and then he pulls it out directly from its places and position it in the preserving solution and finally plants in the receiving place.

Can you transplant hair from other parts of the body? This disadvantage of this type of procedure is generally that body hair has a lower standard than the hair in the scalp; this is due to the fact that the formation of hair in the scalp is more logical than the hair around the body. In order to have a successful outcome after a hair transplant using body hair you need to plant more hair than you truly need. The degree of compatibility is so vital as well in order to have the top possible outcome. You also have to keep in mind that the victory rates of hair transplants using body are less than those of the procedures that use donor areas from the scalp. The big cause for this is that body hair is not as limited as the scalp hair. For example we took 2000 grafts from the body it is easy to get only 1000 fit grafts. Generally in hair transplant procedures where the donor are is the interior place of the patients head we get 2000 out of 2000, that is why doctors advise procedures where hair is extracted from the donor place in the scalp.
