What can you tell me about body hair transplants, where hair is taken from almost any part of the body and transplanted to the head? I found a place on the web that offers it and I am curious to know if it is a real possibility and how natural it looks. Thanks.
In the cases I’ve seen, body hair transplantation (BHT) does not look natural at all. A while ago I saw a picture in the National Enquirer that showed a person who had his head transplanted with pubic hair. The transplants kept their hair character in the transplanted process… and no surprise, it looked like he had pubic hair growing out of his head. I also saw a man in my office who had the entire top of his head transplanted with body hair… and it looked just like his chest hair did. It was anything but a lush, tight hairline look and it was thinner than a normal head of hair would be.
Those are just examples of the visual differences. I’ve also seen a few cases of BHT failures. Plus, there’s the problem of the hair growth cycle for body hair being different than scalp hair, meaning much of it is dormant at any given time and it will never get to any great length (which you probably would want for styling).
