Hair Transplants for Beard Hair & Beardline
Transplanting hair follicles from the scalp onto the face creates an increase in facial hair which is particularly desirably after beard hair can no longer grow due to trauma or burns; beard transplants can also be used to cover scars or simply to gain thicker, fuller facial hair.
How do Beard Transplants Work?
Beard transplant surgeries act much like typical hair transplants onto the scalp combined with the delicacy of transplanting hairs onto the eyebrows. Hairs are removed from the scalp within small follicular units comprising one or two hairs at a time; these units are then inserted into 1-2 mm long incisions along the cheek or jawbone. Just as in traditional scalp transplantation, there will be some slight scabbing for a few days and the hairs will fall out due to their roots’ trauma of being moved. Although the hairs themselves are gone, the cells and glands which support the hairs are still firmly in place so in about three months, after the hairs come out of their restive state, your beard, goatee, or moustache will begin growing like any non-transplanted facial hair. Once these hairs begin to grow, it will need to be trimmed, shaved, clipped, etc, to keep it in the style you just as though you never had the transplant.
Can I Shave my Transplanted Beard?
Yes. After the beard begins growing approximately 2-3 months after the transplant, it will act just like natural hair because it is your own hair growing as it always did, just on a different part of your head. You can shave, trim, and style your facial hair and it will grow back like the hair on your scalp.
Are Beard Transplants Safe?
The transplantation process itself is relatively safe. A section of hairs, either as a strip or in individual follicular units, is removed from the head and placed into small incisions on the face. You are partially sedated and should not be in any pain during or after surgery. As with any plastic surgery, however, this is a very personal procedure. Ensure that your surgeon has a recognized history of facial hair reconstruction; it is also imperative that he/she goes through the step-by-step process with you, marks out where the hairs are to be inserted so you can gauge if it will be the look you desire, and knows how to place the hairs in proper angles in order to ensure a natural looking beard.
