Men with beards appear to be more masculine, and it has also become a trend. While there are those men naturally blessed with lush facial hair, a few don’t have this, and it could be somehow disturbing.
But we’re here with some good news to such people and share some options, such as a beard transplant. Does this work similar to a scalp hair transplant?
A beard transplant also involves harvesting hair from another part of your body. And this usually comes from the patient’s back head, where the hair is thick and resembles a beard. Then it gets transplanted to the beard region. You don’t need to worry that it may not look the same. Only rarely will there be coloration problems.
Who Would Make A Good Beard Transplant Candidate?
Generally, anyone with suitable donor hairs on the back area of their head (2,000 and 2,500 hair follicles) is uncomfortable with their beard appearance.
Some common reasons for getting a beard hair transplant include:
- Men with patchy and thin facials that don’t look attractive.
- Those who would love to add the density of their beard
- Men with a short scruffy beard.
- Candidates who want to enhance their facial appearance
- Patients who are suffering from burns and scars caused by injuries.
- The FTM transgender men-looking for a natural permanent appearance.
- Those who want to reinvigorate their moustaches, goatees or beards.
Common Beard Transplants
Two popular types of beard restoration include the following:
FUE Beard Transplants
Follicular unit extraction (FUE) beard transplant is a procedure that involves removing individual follicle units of 1-4 hairs from a dense area. Then transplant it articulately to a mustache or fill up a thin and patchy beard. It’s a preferred hair restoration treatment as it doesn’t leave scarring in the donor region.
FUT Beard Transplants
Follicular unit transplantation (FUT) of the beard is a process that involves the extraction of a strip of follicles from the back of the patient’s head. However, after the FUT transplant, this may leave some linear scars in the donor area. But it remains hidden under the surrounding hair.
Sometimes hair transplant specialists may prefer to combine FUT and FUE technology. And this is a case-to-case basis in patients who may not have enough donor’s hair. So, this ensures the patient gets a complete, natural beard.
Men who have struggled to grow their facial hair now have a beard transplant solution. And that includes those with sideburns, those who want to add the density or shape their beard. This procedure offers a natural permanent hair growth solution. However, a candidate must ensure to use an experienced hair transplant professional to prevent beard-related problems.
