How effective are hair transplants in African American Ethnic patients?
Body Hair Transplants
Dear Dr. Epstein,
I’m considering a chest hair tansplant, but first I have a question to you.
Do clients sometimes complain, after an operation, that they are too hairy on that body part, in comparison with their legs and arms?
Thank you, and congratulations on your work.
Dear Dr Epstein
I would like to know if you offer hair transplant repair using chest hair. I have already had a sample of 100 chest hair grafts transplanted to the scalp and it has been growing well for 16 months now. The maximum length it reaches is about 3 inches and the color matches my scalp hair. I will be happy to send you pictures in due course but initially I would like to know if this is a procedure you offer and the cost.
I had a prior chest transplant surgery of 2000 grafts. It was a really bad experience. My goals are:
1. Much more density
2. No spots or scars on my chest.
3. No curly transplanted hair (my chest hair is limp)
4. No gray hair transplanted
5. No incisions (a FUE procedure)
6. Abdomen hair/pubic hair as donor hair (crown/back head hair is thicker)
Please tell me: can you offer a solution according to my goals? How many grafts do I need? Thank you very much for your feedback.
I had ~4000 grafts to the chest mid-August ’08 with no significant discomfort other than some itching about 1 week later as the grafts healed. The procedure itself was no big deal and virtually painless. Many of the hairs fell out after a few weeks but several stayed and the only noticeable change was a few small bumps here and there where the implanted grafts were placed. Some of the new hairs started growing in around 2 1/2 months and many more by 3. It’s going on 4 months now and there’s noticeable change in the overall appearance.
