Next to a hair transplant, which normally transfers hair on your head, we also perform the very popular Beard restoration. Facial hair transplantation is a frequently performed procedure aimed to transplant scalp hair to facial regions that lack density and fullness.
Careful placed grafts ensure natural appearing facial hair, They should be placed in the correct angle and proper direction. For optimal graft survival after donor harvesting, careful handling of the grafts are essential. At the Aesthetic Surgery Center we use Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), to increases the survival rate of the hair grafts after surgery.
Our center specializes in FUE surgery. It is the most modern hair restoration procedure to harvest follicles for facial hair transplantation. With the FUE procedure the follicular grafts are harvested from the posterior or back portion of the scalp similar to traditional hair transplant procedures. The hair grafts are then re-implanted in the facial regions that require greater facial hair density. The new facial hair grows like normal facial hair. The texture and other characteristics of the hair follicle are like the ones growing on your scalp. Once grown back they can be groomed, shaved or allowed to grow to any length similar to the original or native facial hair follicle. Once transplanted the new facial hairs are everlasting and hard to tell apart from the original facial hairs. Facial hair transplant including moustache and beard transplant is growing in popularity.
An increasing number of men embrace facial hair and beards. It is a global trend and a sign of masculinity and not a clean-shaven look. As it can be a challenge for some to even grow stubble, this transplant can be the solution if you are keen at sprouting more facial hair. Beard restoration do not mean only transplanting of beards. You can use it to get a moustache, goatee or sideburns or just to fill in sparse facial hair and patchiness. If the transplant is to fill out patches, your surgeon will carefully place all donor hair at the right angle and thickness.
The beard restoration procedure
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with an oral sedative. The beard restoration procedure roughly takes 2 to 5 hours depending on the number of grafts harvested. The first few days after the procedure result in tiny crusts forming around each transplanted hair. Typically by the second day, patients are able to travel home and resume non-strenuous activities. The transplanted hairs will begin to fall out at around 3 weeks, and then start to regrow at 3-4 months.
You may think that a beard transplant is not a big procedure to worry about. Of course, there is nothing to worry about, but it is still a surgical procedure. Just make sure that an experienced hair restoration surgeon performs your transplant.
