BHFUE – Refined Hair Restoration

BHFUE hair transplant. Body hair expands the donor “hair bank”. Increases the donor resources available to the surgeon and patient. Previously scalp hair was the only donor resource. As a result, body hair has helped many hair loss candidates. Especially previous hair transplant repair patients. To be successful body hair must resemble scalp hair. For example, the hair characterics must blend. The hair curl, colour and coarseness.

Body hair uses the Follicular Unit Extraction hair transplant technique. FUE is minimally invasive. Asa result, it leaves only minor signs of hair removal. Consequently can be used on cosmetically visible areas. Such as beard or chest. BHFUE requires advanced surgical skills to perform well. The skilled surgeons at the Hair Dr are highly experienced in BHFUE hair transplant.

How BHFUE Works:

BHFUE is an advanced level of hair transplant. Body hair removal is demanding to perform. Often the areas of the body are very pliable. As a result skin laxity is loose. As a result, graft removal becomes more difficult. Also, medications such as DHT blockers may have a negative impact on body hair. With a potential side effect being thinning and hair loss. Therefore compatibility needs to be established first. Body hair groups are smaller in comparison to scalp hair. Often only growing in 1-2 hair groups.

The hair follicles are cleaned under magnification. Being made ready for placement. This ensures the highest standard of hair growth is achieved. Body hair can also be used to hide unsightly scarring. Old hair transplant scars for example.



The body donor hair is shaved and prepared ready for hair removal.

Local anaesthetic and sedative is administered. Allowing for pain and stress free experience.

Hair Dr surgeons perform body hair removal from the donor.

The hair units are separated into natural groups. Trimmed, cleaned and maintained in a bespoke “holding solution”.
