Beard and Moustache transplantation normally refers to the surgical procedure of restoration of hair in areas affected with baldness due to any particular reasons. Just like transplantations of hair is done for scalp, similarly, there are a few men who suffer from hair falling in beard and moustache area, and need similar kind of treatment to restore their facial hairs. A beard and moustache is the symbolism of a male, and surely represents abundance of male hormones from a simple glimpse on the face. Once a man starts developing problems with facial hairs, this even leads to low morale levels and a lower confidence while representing himself before a third person.
Facial Hair Transplants use the latest FUE Transplant technology to carefully extract hair from the back and sides of the scalp and transfer them to the face. The procedure is carried out under local anesthetic and it’s a walk-in walk-out procedure. You can get back to your normal routine quickly.
The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure, as used for hair transplants, is also utilised in Beard, Moustache, Goatee and Sideburn Hair Transplants. This method is a minimally invasive procedure used to restore hair density on different areas of the face. The procedure can take between three and nine hours – depending on the area treated and amount of hair required. For example, a goatee may require up to 1,500 hairs, while a full beard may need up to 4,000 hairs.
During the procedure the Surgeon locates the ‘stable zone area’ at the side or back of the head. This is used as the donor area for the beard, moustache or sideburns. Finer hair is typically needed for a Beard Transplant where the donor area is located at the sides of the head. If the patient is balding or is completely bald it is also possible to use body hair such as the chest area for the donor area.
An FUE Beard Transplant is a walk-in walk-out procedure and only local anaesthetic is used to ensure minimal downtime. Once the donor area is located each hair follicle is taken out one at a time using ‘punches’ to cut in and around the follicle. The size of the tools will depend on the size of the follicles required – the finer the hair the smaller the ‘punch’. This part of the process is completed very discretely and will be unnoticeable.
Once this is completed local anaesthetic is administered to the areas of the face for the hair transplant. Careful and skilful attention is used to ensure the extracted hairs are then implanted, one follicle at a time, at the right angle to give highest density and most natural looking results.
The hair transplanted during an FUE Beard Transplant are placed permenantly and will look natural. The difference will be noticeable immediately after the procedure is completed. As with any FUE Hair Transplant the full results are typically expected within several months.
The hair growth will begin and continue to grow as it does on the rest of the beard, sideburns, and moustache.
