Dear Forum readers and fellow HT doctors,
I would like to share our experience in BHT with others.
Below, I have formulated a set of guidelines that should help prospective patients as well as future doctors venturing into BHT.
These guidelines are based on our follow up observations in patients.
1. Preshave the body donor areas 3 to 5 days before the extraction. It is a simple step and very helpful to pinpoint the actively growing hair that need to be used.
Use only the body donor hair in active growing phase for purpose of transplant. Do not use telogen hair.
Assume the transplanted body hair will retain their original characteristics (length, calibre, color, predisposition to greying, curl, anagen/telogen %ages and hair growth cycles).
Factor in the impact of growth cycles and characteristics of the body donor hair proposed to be transplanted.
Mix the various body as well as scalp donor hair in any particular area of scalp.
