Beard transplantation can be applied to any individual who has no beard genetically or who has lost his beard for certain reasons, who has completed the age of 20 and who has no health problems that prevent the procedure to be performed with the FUE Technique.
In this process, the basic principles of which are the same as hair transplantation, it is not necessary to shave the entire hairy area.
For a lot of guys, growing a beard isn’t as simple as avoiding a razor and letting nature take its course. Stubble doesn’t always grow uniformly on the face, resulting in patchy facial hair instead of a stylish beard.
Or, you may have inherited genes that make any type of beard growth practically impossible.
But just as you can transplant your own hair to the top of your head to tackle a receding hairline, you can also try a beard implant if your facial hair follicles aren’t cooperating.
A doctor will first need to evaluate your skin and hair to make sure you’re a good candidate, and then you’ll have to decide if it’s worth the expense.
Like any medical procedure, there’s not a 100 percent guarantee you’ll be happy with the results. Beard transplant scars are always a risk.
But if you can find a qualified provider, it may be worth at least investigating whether a few hours in a doctor’s office can provide a beard to last a lifetime.
A beard transplant is just that: Hair is taken from one part of the body and transplanted to your jawline and wherever you want your beard to grow.
That sounds simple enough, but it’s a rather involved process.
Here’s an overview of the steps involved in the procedure:
Whether you’ve chosen to have a FUE or a FUT, your surgeon’s first step will be to shave the area on your head that’s being harvested.
This gives them a clearer view of the hair follicles. Before the harvesting begins, you’ll be given a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel the harvesting or the implantation.
Once the follicles have been harvested from your head, the surgeon will inject a local anesthetic into the area of your face where the implants will be placed. Then, the surgeon will implant each follicle into your facial skin, shaping your new beard the way you and the doctor agreed on prior to surgery.
You’ll need a day to recover from the beard implant surgery. Tiny crusts may form around each newly implanted hair follicle, but these should flake off within a few days.
After about a week to 10 days, you should be able to start shaving normally and trimming your new beard.
A word of warning, however: Your new beard hairs may fall out after 2 or 3 weeks. This is normal, and new hair should grow in to take their place.
Regardless of the type of procedure performed, within 3 or 4 months, the transplanted hair follicles should be settled into place and growing.
You’ll know the beard implant was successful if, at 8 or 9 months, you have a full, healthy beard that you can treat as though it had been there all along.
While both FUE and FUT can produce natural-looking beards, FUT beards tend to be fuller.
This is because more follicles are usually harvested when a strip of skin is removed. So if your goal is a thicker-looking beard, consider FUT.
Beard transplant failure is rare and is usually the result of improper harvesting from the donor area. This is why it’s important and worth paying more to choose an experienced hair restoration surgeon.
