Can a Totally Bald Person Have A Hair Transplant?

Can a Totally Bald Person Have A Hair Transplant?

Usually in a hair transplant procedure, hair are taken from the back of the scalp and are transplanted to the bald area.

But what about people who do not have enough on the back of their scalp? Can they not have a hair transplant?

Can they not regain their personality and confidence again?

And the answer is YES, they can.

So what is the solution?

People who are completely bald can also undergo a hair transplant. They can also look good again and revamp their personalities. So what is the difference in the hair transplant procedure in these individuals?

The only difference is that in this type of a hair transplant, the donor area is some other part of the body that has hair and not the back of the head like in a traditional hair transplant.

Which body parts can be used as a donor area?

To cover the head of a person who is completely bald, 7000 to 8000 grafts are usually required. But because not enough hair can be extracted from the back of the scalp, doctors extract hair from other parts of the body.

Body Hair Transplant (BHT) thus becomes a very helpful procedure for such people. For donor area, hair can be extracted from other body parts like:

Beard, Chest and Armpits

Thought these body hair are of little different quality in terms of their texture and thickness when compared to hair on the head, but a good doctor can perfectly use them for hair transplant.


YES, it is very effective. At Aura Skin Institute, we commonly do this procedure to treat people suffering from baldness. The main advantage of Body Hair Transplant is that using this technique, a large bald area of the scalp can be covered and there is minimal additional cost for this procedure. Otherwise, it is also a routinely done procedure like that of a traditional hair transplant procedure.
