For many years, women were encouraged to wax and use laser hair removal to get rid of hair in the bikini line and pubic area. Hair removal techniques, when used regularly, can damage the hair follicles and cause hair loss. Women’s clothing styles, eyebrow shape and hairstyles have changed over the years, which is also true for hair in the pubic area. Many women, including a good number of celebrities, have stopped their bikini wax routine.

Recently, prominent Hollywood stars have publicly declared that they have adopted the natural look of the pubic area, which has prompted many women to do the same. This trend has caused a peak of interest for intimate hair transplant, a treatment originally intended for patients with a lack of hair in the pubic area (hypotrichosis) that is more prevalent among women of Mongolian and Korean origin.

Hair restoration for the intimate parts may be surprising, but hair transplant has been used for several years to restore hair in areas such as the eyebrows or the beard. When it is done too frequently, eyebrow hair removal causes the same problem as with the bikini area: hair tends not to grow back because of the damage caused to follicles. For men, hair transplant is often used to fill the naturally bald areas of the beard or its lack of density. Thanks to the minimally invasive technique of follicular unit extraction (FUE), the procedure is relatively fast, painless and without unsightly scars at the harvesting sites.

How is pubic hair transplant done ?

This type of transplant is a micro-surgical procedure that is carefully planned and performed. Hair follicles are removed from the scalp individually and then meticulously implanted (one by one also) in the pubic area, which is anesthetized beforehand. Hair is selected according to its thickness, length, texture and curvature in order to achieve the desired result. Just like a hair, eyebrow or beard transplant, complete healing is expected in two weeks after which the patient can resume his usual daily routine. Regrowth of grafted hair begins on average 10 to 12 weeks after the transplant with a perfectly natural appearance.

Dr.Seffen works with his patients to define the area of implantation (recipient area). The number of hair grafts varies depending on the surface and desired hair density in the pubic area. Follicles are usually removed from the back of the head without scalpel and without leaving a linear scar. Dr.Seffen carefully implants hair grafts while taking into account the natural hair growth angle, orientation, position and spacing to ensure the natural appearance of the area.
