Bht and a buzzcut

So I took a dive and did FUE, I can’t grow my hair out because of overharvesting, my planned way to proceed is to get body hair transplant into the scars on the donor masking them and allowing myself to have a buzzcut, problems may include uneven skin texture after body hair transplant (bht) and or that redness that can also persist after hair transplant.

I’ve seen good chest hair buzzcut looks but will all body hair look similarities to hair if it’s transplanted and kept short or just chest hair.

Growing out not good because hairline is too straight.

See the thing about it is it doesn’t age well. Look at any tattoo they morph shape, fade in colour, turn blue, become splodgy... there’s no way of knowing how it will age.

Your concerns are very valid, i was under the impression they used special inks though? You look to have a good source of beard hair is that an option for potential donor?

Yeah but beard hair is thicker. If you want good camouflage I think thinner is best, chest hair definitely better imo. Leg hair I’m not sure, plus beard hair grows twice as fast from shaved to 1/2 inch. Which isn’t ideal. I’ll consider it but generally beard hair is great if you want to grow it but maybe not for buzzcut. As far as I can discern.

Special inks are a bullshit marketing thing, think about it, each person will get rid of pigment through immune system in different ways. There’s no way of telling it’s a gamble that gets more and more dangerous as time goes on, plus consider aging and hair colour change. ‍♂️

I was under the impression they used different inks too like the ones ladies use for eyebrows? Do you have good chest hair for donor?

How many grafts did you actually get from your donor bud (not helpful I know but I'm just curious)
One problem that might cause an issue is thinning of the body hairs used if your not taking Meds now and then start them after the body hair as been transplanted.
I only mention this as a small percentage of men get some thinning or loss of body hair to various degrees with Finasteride use ( I did myself a little)
I understand your comment regarding beard hair being thicker too in appearance than native head hair too.....have you had any consults in person to get so advice?

I hope you get sorted dude.
