Hair Restoration To Goatee, Mustache, Beard And Sideburns
Facial hair transplantation is a commonly performed procedure in which scalp hairs are transplanted to facial regions lacking density and fullness.
A beard transplant is a type of procedure that involves transplanting hair, typically from the scalp to the beard region. Men usually go for this type of procedure to thicken the beard they have or fill in patchy areas. It is similar to a typical hair transplant procedure, and the hair transplanted can be shaved or styled in any way after a particular period of time. It’s also possible to have sideburns, a goatee, or moustache hair transplants.
These types of transplants help to hide facial scars, recessed or cleft chins, burn damage, or sparse hair growth due to hereditary factors. It is a permanent solution, and the hair transplanted will grow naturally in a couple of months’ time, giving the patient a thicker and fuller natural beard. Some men choose a beard transplant to enhance their attractiveness because it helps them to hide, highlight, or deemphasize different facial features. Others want to restore or increase their beard hair to feel more masculine.
Donor area- back of scalp
Done under local anesthesia
Grafts are harvested form permanent zone on the back portion of the scalp
The technique we are using to harvest follicles for facial hair transplantation is the FUE technique. 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 new hair grafts are then re-implanted with special implanters without causing any scarring in the facial regions requiring greater facial hair density.
This is done with care because the doctor has to implant the hair mostly single or double hair graft in the natural direction, angle and depth so that it normally grows and also take care of aesthetics, such as grey hairs, in a natural way. The transplanted hairs fall out after a month and new hair starts to grow in around three months’ time, taking around a year to fully grow in.. Once transplanted, the hairs are permanent and typically grow just like facial hair with similar texture and other characteristics. Furthermore, the transplanted hair can be shaved just as you would other facial hair.
WHEN WILL THE NEW HAIR GROW ?
The new facial hair typically grows like normal facial hair. The texture and other characteristics of the hair follicle harvested from the scalp, once grown back 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 permanent and difficult to tell apart from the original hair.
To ensure natural appearing facial hair, careful placement of the grafts at the correct angle and proper direction is required. For optimal graft survival after donor harvesting, careful handling of the grafts are essential. HOW IS THE PROCEDURE DONE?
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia. The procedure roughly takes 2 to 8 hours depending on the number of grafts harvested. We use single or double hair containing grafts to achieve the most natural appearance. 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 4 weeks, and then start to regrow at 3-4 months. WHAT ARE THE TOOLS USED FOR BEARD RECONSTRUCTION
For extraction – AUTOMATED FUE SAFE SYSTEM
For hair placement – Special imported implanters
Anesthesia – local
Recovery time – immediately
Scarring – none
HOW MANY GRAFT NEEDED FOR RECONSTRUCTION OF BEARD AND MOUSTACHES
The number of grafts required can vary but averages are as follows: 300-600 grafts for the mustache, 600-800 grafts for a full goatee, 200-350 grafts for each sideburn, and 500-1000 grafts for a cheek beard. WHO IS A CANDIDATE FOR MOUSTACHE AND BEARD TRANSPLANT ?
Men who suffer with lack of facial hair growth due to genetic factors, laser hair removal, electrolysis, surgery, burns or injury are the best candidates for this procedure WHAT IS THE RECOVERY PERIOD AND CARE AFTER THE PROCEDURE?
The procedure is usually performed under local anesthesia and takes around 2 to 6 hours; it is essentially painless, as is the recovery period. You can resume normal activities and can travel safely immediately after the procedure
Initially there will be swelling and scab (tiny crust) formation surrounding the transplanted hairs, which fall off in 10 days. Shaving can be done after 10 to 14 days. WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF MOUSTACHE AND BEARD TRANSPLANT BY FUE TECHNIQUE?
