Non scalp hair transplants in Lahore Pakistan are routinely performed at our clinic under the supervision of a foreign qualified ,experienced surgeon Dr. Ahmad Chaudhry. The use of body hair is relatively a new and less applied concept in the world of hair restoration surgery. The traditional method involves either the FUE or FUT, both of which involve the extraction of follicles from the scalp and implanting them on bald areas of the scalp. But this isn’t always possible because some patients may not have enough donor area available for hair restoration. For this purpose, chest, arm, abdomen, thighs and beard follicles can be taken. Therefore, experts are nowadays looking to go for body follicles to be used in the treatment.

Dr. Ahmad Chaudhry is routinely taking body hair to the head as mostly patients visit him for repair or bad results fixing. Such patients do not have sufficient donor area in the back or sides of the head. Thus to fix or repair or to add more density, beard follicles are an extra source. Dr. Ahmad Chhaudhry did his MBBS from the prestigious King Edward medical college and specialization from Rene Descartes & Claude Bernard University France. 

Reasons for body hair use for head

The use of body hairs are usually not preferred by surgeons because of the following reasons:

  1. There is no proper and perfect method for the extraction of body hair. So the process may be performed under less desirable conditions which may lead to unpleasant effects on the body.
  2. There is a need for larger extraction punctures because the body hair is spread over a vast area. Thus, more body area is applicable to the procedure which may cause complications.
  3. The size and texture of non scalp hair may vary leading to an unnatural look. Such as the beard hair is very thick so they cannot be used at the hairline properly.
  4. This process requires longer surgical time with a high level of expertise. It prolongs the surgery hours and may be uncomfortable for the patients.
  5. There may be hypo-pigmentation if the donor area.

Non scalp Vs Scalp donor area grafts comparison

The use of non scalp hair for transplants has been tested only a few times and according to that the efficiency is yet unclear. The survival rate of scalp, chest and beard follicle is 60%, 46.7% and 70% respectively. This is because the beard hair has more potential to grow because of increased thickness and high speed growth. Other areas of the body had very less rate such as 39%, 29% and 51% for abdomen, back and thighs respectively.

Rate of effluvium of non scalp hair

Effluvium occurs due to shedding phase which comes 2-3 months after the surgery. It’s rate can also predict the survival of follicles. For example, the effluvium rate for beard is low and that for chest hair is high.


The use of non scalp hair transplants can be proved an effective source of follicles provided that the patient has completely lost his donor area capacity. More research is being made to prove the efficiency of this procedure so that it can be successfully applied in clinical trials on a broader level.
