Body hair transplant is becoming increasingly popular as a hair replacement surgical procedure. Body hair transplant in India especially has gained global attention these days because it is affordable, involves the latest surgical techniques and is done by highly qualified surgeons. One of the commonly employed body hair transplant procedure is the follicle unit extraction (FUE) method. FUE hair transplant cost is very modest in India compared to many other parts of the world. FUE technique involves transplanting hair from one part of the body or the donor site to another part of the body or the receiver site.
Metamorphosis is a highly equipped hair transplant clinic that specializes in FUE hair replacement procedures. Commonly, we do transplantation on the head, face, cheek and chin. Generally at Metamorphosis, we prefer to take hair from the scalp. However, if there is insufficient hair in these regions, we generally recommend body transplant surgery to our clients. In body transplant surgery, hair follicles are taken from other parts of the body such as chest, arms and legs where there is a thick growth of hair. Sometimes even beard hair follicles can be used to replace hair on the scalp. Of course, there is a difference in the texture of the hair acquired from other parts of the body such as chest and arms. Scalp and beard hair, on the other hand, are a close match to each other. Therefore, it is always preferred to transplant scalp hair to the face and vice-versa. Still, body hair transplant is advantageous if you want to achieve a higher density of hair growth in one sitting if your initial hair grafts are weak. This procedure is generally performed under local anesthesia and therefore is generally painless. Once the procedure is done, patients can see full growth of their hair within 7 to 10 months.
