What is a Beard & Moustaches Hair Transplant?
Facial hair transplant is a procedure generally done on men who suffer from spotty or patchy loss of hair from goatee, other parts of the beard, sideburns or mustache. The absence of hair could be hereditary or due to surgical scars, burns or other types of accidents. For some males, keeping a thick beard or mustache is a symbol of manhood and strength, while for others it is a mandatory requirement in their religion. Moreover, it is also a fashion statement among many young men.
The beard and mustache transplant is more tricky and technical as direction and angle of hair changes in different parts of the face. Thus, it requires greater experience and meticulous planning by the surgeon to understand the natural pattern and has to be customized accordingly. Otherwise, the surgical steps of the transplant essentially remain the same as in FUE hair transplants.
We use the same FUE technique that we use in hair transplantation on the scalp. The grafts are extracted from the donor area. Then these extracted grafts are transplanted on the patchy/bald portions of the beard or mustache. Due to the abundant amount of hair from the donor area, almost all the patches can be covered and treated in a single session. So, beard or mustache transplantation usually gives very satisfying results. The transplanted hair grows naturally like other facial hair and can be trimmed or shaved.
