Default The Facts: Chest & Abdomen FUE, Carlos K. Wesley, M.D.

Based on recent peer-reviewed articles and publications, this video provides an overview of chest and abdominal hair to scalp follicular unit extraction (FUE). Highlights include statistics related to graft survival, beard hair caliber (versus that of scalp), and length of transplanted hair (beard versus scalp).

Thank you for bringing this research to the community. You are lifting the veil on critical issues. Everyone interested in BHT should view this video.

Excellent video presentation. It's great to see doctors continuing to explore options such as these. While body to scalp hair transplantation may not be the right choice for everyone, there is no doubt in my mind that there are repair patients out there for whom this type of procedure is their only chance of a "normal" look.

I also wonder about the possibilities of combing a this with SMP to give even a NW VII the opportunity to have a full coverage, close-cropped hairdo.

Thanks for your kinds words and I'm glad you enjoyed the video. I think that, based on the progress we've made in our field over the last few years and what's currently in the pipeline, the full coverage, short hairstyle scenario may certainly be possible for more and more men and women in the future!

Great video doc.
2 poor unsatisfactory hair transplants performed in the UK.

Based on vast research and meeting patients, I travelled to see Dr Feller in New York to get repaired.
