VÜCUT KIL EKİMİ

Kafa derisi donör alanı mevcudiyeti sınırlı olduğunda ve greft sayısına olan talep daha yüksek olduğunda, çözüm arayışı bizi Vücut Kıl Nakli kavramına yönlendirdi. Bu teknikte, saç folikülleri vücudun diğer bölümlerinden, yani sakaldan, göğüsten elde edilir. Bunlar kafa derisini kaplamanın birincil kaynağı değil, restorasyon için ek greft kaynağıdır.

Vücut kılının özellikleri saç derisi kıllarından farklıdır ve bunun nedeni saç döngüsü, büyüme şekli, saç sayısı, büyüme yönü ve görünümdür. VKE’nin uygulandığı bu farklılıklara rağmen, nakledilen saçlar kafa derisine alışmakta ve 12-15 cm uzunluğa kadar büyümekte ve kafa derisi saçı yakın özelliklere sahip olabilmektedir.

Dikkat edilmesi gereken nokta, vücut kıllarının doğal saç derisi kıllarının arasına dağılmış olmasıdır ve bu kombinasyon en iyi sonucu verir ve en doğal görüntü ve fenotipik farklılıkları en aza indirir.

WHO ARE THE CANDIDATES FOR BHT?

BHT performed only on the patients who have proper and dense hair growth on the chest and beard.

WHEN BHT PERFORMED?

    • Patients with a weak scalp donor area, i.e., Grade VII patients.
    •  
    • Depleted donor area due to previous surgery.
    •  
    • Disorders of donor area on scalp.
    •  
    • Acquire grafts for the front hairline.
    •  
    • Eyebrow reconstruction and transplantation.
    •  
    • Reduced area of donor grafts due to burns, scarring alopecias, etc.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN BHT AND FUE METHOD?

The technique of body hair transplant is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). Difference is the donor area, which is the beard and chest. BHT is used primarily in cases where the donor area on the head is no longer suitable for the extraction of donor material or is not dense enough. At this point, we do evaluate the possibility of hair from the body. If the requirements met, grafts could be extracted directly from the areas mentioned above and moved to the recipient area. Also, body hair differs from scalp grafts as these mostly contain only one hair compared to 1 to 7 strands in scalp grafts, thus mainly used for feathering.

ADVANTAGES OF BHT ARE:

  • Increase scalp coverage in patients with poor donor area of the scalp.
  • Body hair is resistant to DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) remains on the scalp forever.
  • The hair mixes well with the scalp hair, and we can extract good numbers from the body.
  • Satisfying growth pattern when implanted on the scalp.

BHT AT ACTUAL HAIR CLINIC

We have carried out Body Hair Transplant (BHT) at Actual Hair Clinic for many patients from all over the world and reached successful results.

   At Actual Hair Clinic, we do promise rational and realistic outcomes to our patients. We do not falsify the number of grafts and the results of our patients. Our main advantage is that we do extensive planning of the area we are going to work on – head, back of the head, face, and forehead assessed at this stage. We examine hair follicles, procedure accurately planned, approximate number of grafts calculated with their distribution plan. After that, the patient is informed about all possible consequences understandably to make the patient have a clear idea about all the aspects and outcomes of the surgery.

   We also give patients briefs before surgery, after the surgery, and on control or wash day. The total number of submissions is 3. In these briefs, we inform the patients about the transplant basics, some terminology, after the transplant care, the time-lapse after the transplant. We do it thoroughly so the patients feel comfortable and safe. Our patients continue to get online support from a professional and trustworthy team, so they don’t feel deceived and disappointed even after the transplant performed.

   At Actual Hair Clinics, all stages of the surgery directly supervised by our physician who have long-standing experience in this field and modern device and approaches used for the treatment. All patients informed in detail about the entire BHT transplant process based on realistic plans.
