Beard Transplant Procedure
Growing a beardhas been a sign of manliness since the beginning of time. However, it has been found in some men that the hair they have on their face is much lesser that in other men, resulting in feeling less masculine. Their beards and moustache is found to be scant and such persons can feel depressed because of this situation. There is no medicine or treatment option available other than the beard transplantation which is a surgical procedure.
This procedure can be performed on goatee, moustache, cheek areas, sideburns or even create a whole new beard. This beard transplant procedure can also be used for concealing the scars by allowing dense beard to grow over there.
This procedure can be performed to increase the thickness of hair in a specific area or can be carried out to implant hair where there is no hair.
Donor hairs are usually taken from the back of the scalp. This donor hair behaves like normal facial hair once they are transplanted in the face. They are permanent after transplant and give a natural appearance.
The extraction method can be either FUE or FUT, depending the person's suitability and budget. After the follicular hair units are extractedfrom the donor area, they areprocessed so they can be suitable facial hair follicles. After extracting and placing all the hair needed for the transplant in the solution, the surgeon clears the beard area and applies required anaesthesia over the area where the transplantation is going to take place. After this, tiny microscopic slots are prepared on the recipient area by using a fine needle and a microscope. The hairs are then to be placed in those slits one by one (FUE implantation) with utmost care and precision till an aesthetically satisfactory beard will be formed.
After the surgery the patient can go home immediately. No antibiotics or anti-inflammatory medications are necessary, but may be some paracetamol. After about one week everything will become normal and the patient can return to his normal life. All the transplanted hair will fall off within one week and they will start growing again after about three months. The regrown hair will be permanent with all the characteristics of natural hair. They can be washed, shaved and combed to the desired shape.
