Do I need to shave my body hair if I am going for body hair transplant?

Body hair transplant comes into play when the patient does not have enough scalp donor grafts. Patient should be counseled meticulously before the surgery about the the difference between the growth pattern, hair cycle and different texture when the body hairs are used as donor hair grafts.
Ideally, patient wet shave (with shaving cream and razor blade) the donor area 4 to 5 days before the surgery date. In case of beard being used as a donor, last shave should be done around 3 days before the surgery.
