Body hair transplantation ("BHT") is a newer technique of hair transplantation whereby donor hair is taken from any area other than the scalp.
Donor hair used for BHT includes beard, chest, leg and arms. This photo shows follicles freshly isolated from the chest. They will be transplanted into the scalp.
The survival of follicles from sites other than the scalp may be less than for the scalp. Chest and beard follicles generally have higher survival than leg and arm hair.
