Can I Transplant Hair from My Back and Shoulders to My Balding Scalp?

11/25/2010 1:41:40 AM

Question:

Is it possible to extract hair from the back and shoulders and then transplant that hair to needed areas? Do you know a physician who is doing this?

Answer:

It is possible to transplant body hair to the head. While there are some hair restoration physicians who practice this procedure, many feel that the results are too unpredictable and should only be reserved for patients whose donor supply is extremely limited.

For more information I suggest reading the following article from our Hair Loss Q&A Blog, Body Hair Transplantation (BHT) presentation by Dr. Bob True.
