MIAMI (PRWEB) December 04, 2017
Many men who experience male pattern baldness joke that they lost the hair on their head only to gain it in other places. It’s a fairly common occurrence, and in the past many men have requested hair restoration using hair from the back, shoulders and chest as donor hair. The good news is that recent developments in the field of hair restoration now allow for the successful relocation of existing body hair to the scalp.
Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, MD, FACS of the Foundation for Hair Restoration, with locations in Miami and New York, has expertise in body hair transplantation (BHT) and is now accepting new patients for this procedure. During a body hair transplant, thousands of unwanted body hairs can be relocated to the scalp, where they will then usually look and grow the same as normal hairs on the head. The procedure is precise, requiring a single follicle extraction at a time from the harvest site of the back, shoulders, beard, and or chest for implantation to the scalp. This follicular unit extraction technique is preferred over traditional hair transplant surgery for a number of reasons. There is typically no scarring associated with this technique, whereas the traditional strip method involved the removal of a strip of hair-bearing skin from the back of the head, resulting in a potentially linear scar.
Not only does body hair transplant restore fullness to hair of the scalp, but it also acts as a hair removal process for various locations of the body. While results will not be as significant as those of a laser hair removal treatment, the follicles of thousands of body hairs are permanently extracted from their original site, preventing future growth in that area. A body hair transplant may thin existing body hair or remove this unwanted feature altogether.
For over twenty years, Dr. Epstein has provided hair loss patients with natural-looking results, achieved through a number of different procedures, including the following:
-Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Hair from more plentiful areas of the scalp, including the back and sides, is harvested individually from its position and re-implanted where the scalp is lacking in hair. This method can generally be performed without any permanent scarring.
-Facial Hair Transplants. Dr. Epstein and his team of hair transplant experts can add fullness to the sideburns, cheeks, mustache, goatee, and beard by grafting one to two hairs at a location for the optimal effect.
-Hairline Advancement. The doctor can lessen the look of a large forehead or receding hair line by redistributing hairs to this area, or by surgically advancing the entire hairline forward and down.
-Eyebrow Hair Transplants. In over-tweezed or naturally sparse brows, scalp hairs can be implanted to accentuate this important, eye-framing feature for a lifetime of thicker brows.
