It's a type of surgery that moves hair you already have to fill an area with thin or no hair. Doctors have been doing these transplants in the U.S. since the 1950s.
You usually have the procedure in the doctor's office. First, the surgeon cleans your scalp and injects medicine to numb the back of your head. Then he removes a 3- to 4-inch strip of skin from that area. He sets it aside and sews the scalp closed. This area is immediately hidden by the hair around it.

Body Hair Transplants (FUSE)
FUSE (Follicular Unit Separation Extraction) is a method of extracting individual hair follicles with microsurgical precision but without scalpel and stitches. Body hair provides an additional source of hair for more fuller, denser hair restoration results.
For patients with robust body hair, BHTs (body hair to scalp transplants) increase available donor hair supply. This treatment option is essential for patients with advanced degrees of hair loss and those who lost scalp donor supply due to other reasons.
FUHT/Strip Technique Details
This article compares the techniques used and healing process for each procedure.
In FUHT, a strip of hair bearing scalp is extracted from the donor area. The strip varies between 1cm to 1.5cm in width. The strip incision is then closed by dissolvable sutures or surgical staples as shown in the following picture. The sutures will dissolve and do not have to be removed. The strip is then dissected into individual follicular unit grafts.
