Often associated with masculinity, the ability to grow and maintain body hair can be a key part of a person’s identity. For this reason, an inability to grow bodily hair or the loss of body hair through trauma, illness or other means can lead to a loss of confidence for men of all ages. For this reason, we are proud to offer a body hair transplant for patients looking to regain control over their hair loss, their masculinity and ultimately, their confidence.
Through the utilisation of hair transplant methods traditionally used on the scalp, it is possible to provide a solution for those who may be unable to grow body hair in one or more areas. Through the use of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), hairs can be individually extracted from a donor site, often on the scalp, and implanted at the recipient site. This method ensures reduced scarring across both the donor and receiving areas, as well as minimal downtime and fast recovery.
Due to the nature of the procedure, a body hair transplant can see the introduction of hair into a number of areas, including the chest and abdomen, as well as the public area, armpits and more. It can provide hair growth in areas that may have always had limited growth, or that may never have had hair growth at all – for this reason, body hair transplants can benefit patients with genetic conditions or who underwent trauma through surgeries, accidents or similar.
When determining eligibility for a body hair transplant, it’s important to consider the reasons for your hair loss and the results you’re seeking from the procedure. Loss of hair from the body, whether the entire body or from a more localised area, can be caused by a number of reasons. These include:
After determining the cause of your hair loss, you can better decide whether a hair transplant for your body hair is the right choice for you. Typically, those who have seen hair loss due to trauma or by genetics are the best candidates for hair loss, though some patients with patterned loss of their body hair may also benefit from a transplant.
It’s important to note that a body hair transplant may not be permanent, however, our experienced, fully-trained surgeons are well-versed in body hair transplant procedures, helping to improve the longevity of each implanted graft. As members of ISHRS, our patients can rest assured that each of our surgeons is highly skilled and sought-after in the industry, meaning they are truly in the best hands.
Each of our patients, whether for a traditional scalp transplant or a body hair transplant, are treated to our extensive packages. These packages are offered as standard, included within the cost and consist of the following:
You will also be assigned a dedicated patient host for your stay in Istanbul or Izmir, who will be on hand to not only act as your central point of call for, but will be there to attend your appointments with you and will stay by your side while you recover from the surgery in the clinic or hospital.
The downtime required for a body hair transplant is minimal thanks to the minimally-invasive nature of an FUE transplant. You will be able to explore Turkey as you desire, though you will need to attend a post-op check-up before you can return home. Throughout this check-in, your surgeon will be able to provide you with any additional aftercare instructions, take a look at how the grafts are taking to your skin and answer any final questions.
