Beard hair transplant is a procedure which restores hair to areas where facial hair growth is thin or missing. While this procedure is most commonly performed on the goatee and mustache areas, it can also be performed on sideburns and cheeks. Beard hair transplants can also be used to conceal acne scars and other types of scars.
Loss of beard hair may happen for so many reasons. It can be the result of genetics, laser hair removal, electrolysis, surgery, burns or injury. Goals for this procedure can vary from a minor filling in or thin coverage of a limited area, to the full restoration of a thick, full goatee or beard. The procedure can be performed on areas where there is no hair or on areas where hair growth is thin and more fullness is desired.
The grafts number maybe change from one person to another but averages are as follows: 400-600 grafts for the mustache, 650-800 grafts for a full goatee, 250-350 grafts for each sideburn, and 400-800 grafts for a cheek beard. While not very common, some patients may need a second session to transplant more grafts if they desire a very thick beard.
Just as with the head hair transplant, the donor area for a beard hair transplant come from the back or sides of the scalp. Which site is used typically depends on which offers the closest match to the facial hair; sometimes it’s the back of the scalp while other times it’s the side of the scalp. Once transplanted, the hairs are permanent and typically grow just like beard hair with similar texture and other characteristics. Furthermore, the transplanted hair can be shaved just as you would other beard hair.
In our clinic we usually use grafts containing one and sometimes two hairs in order to achieve the most natural appearance. We’re also careful to place the grafts at the exact correct angle and direction and, in the case of gray hair, we will even go so far as to aesthetically distribute any existing gray hairs into the restored areas.To minimize scarring,We use all-microscopically dissected grafts that can be placed in the smallest possible incisions.
Procedure and Recovery:
This process is usually performed under local anesthesia with an oral sedative, depending on the patient’s desire. Lasting 2 to 5 hours, it is essentially painless, as is the recovery period. For the first 5 days after the procedure, tiny crusts are around each transplanted hair, and the transplanted area must be kept absolutely dry.
By the second day, patients are able to travel home and resume non strenuous activities, however the face will look like something was done for at least the first 3 to 4 days. Sutures that are placed in the donor area are dissolvable so there is no need to return to the office for removal.
The transplanted hairs fall out at around 2 weeks, then start to regrow at 3 months, where they will continue to grow for a lifetime.
Risks and Results :
There are few risks with the procedure, and most are those associated with standard hair transplants. The donor site incision typically heals as a 2 mm or narrower incision, easily concealable with hair that is cut with anything longer than a razor with a #2 or #3 guard. Some patients choose to avoid a linear donor site incision altogether, preferring to have the grafts obtained by the follicular unit extraction technique.
