Is it possible to place our hairy chest skin on bald scalp?

the hair bulbs or roots have live cells that just like all your other cells have your own unique genetic code in them. If your body comes across someone else's genetic code it tends to reject it. Of course you could take anti rejection drugs as in organ transplants.....so we cant use others hais for our scalp. In our body there are so many areas are there with much hairs,but no use.can any doctor try for skin replace to scalp,if yes then what is the improvement in this field?

Chest hairs can be used as donor hair but it is not the preferred method. Chest "skin" itself is not used for hair transplant

Skin transplants for balding

This is not done. Body hair trransplans can be done but no one would use skin to transplant for hair especially not your own skin.
