There could be many case scenarios when we want to take Direct-BHT approach for you:
- You don’t have enough donor area on your scalp.
- You already have gone through hair transplant yet you still have bald areas left.
- You need hair transplant in other areas like eyebrows, beard, mustache, and sideburns.
The transplant process is the same as Direct-FUE. The only difference is donor area. In Direct-FUE all the donor area is on the scalp. In Direct-BHT donor area can be anywhere on the body.
So the process goes something like this – we extract grafts from donor areas and transplant on desired areas. There’s no time lag between extraction and transplant. You can have 2000–2500 graft transplants per session.
Pros and cons
Direct-BHT is a breakthrough technique. This could be a lifesaver for your transplant when you don’t have enough donor supply. Though you need to understand two things about Direct-BHT:
Body hair occurs as one single follicular unit. Unlike scalp hair, which occurs as a group of 2–4 hair. So extra steps go into the extraction and transplant for the same area. Which increases time and cost.
Body hair doesn’t grow to the same length as scalp hair. So you may need to adopt a short hairstyle. New research in this field indicates that body hair can also grow as fast as scalp hair.
