Can hair be transplanted to the chest?
Absolutely. Typically a procedure of anywhere from a few hundred grafts to over 3,000 hair grafts can create chest hair or other body hair where there was not hair before. Of course, it is important that the surgeon create recipient sites typically in a cross patch pattern to provide the most deliberately irregular pattern of growth for the hairs. If the chest hair growth pattern is too regular, than there is a chance it will appear unnatural. It is important that the surgeon create a very irregular pattern of growth in order for the hairs to look the most natural. And again, it is important that any prospective patient request to see photographs of prior patients to see the results that have already been achieved by the surgeon for other people.
