Beards have become very important today because the hipster look is quite popular with this new generation. This has led to the trend of getting transplants of beard, goatee and sideburns. One of the two procedures, FUT and FUE is used to extract follicular units. The hair grafts then are used to place at specifically targeted areas that have suffered hair loss for various reasons.
Accidental injury marks, birth marks, burn marks and acne scars could be easily concealed by the beard transplant. These are among the prime reasons for which the beard transplant is looked forward to by many males. But these are not all. People who have lost beard hair due to injuries, genetics, over aggressive laser hair removal and electrolysis also seek these sorts of transplants. Then there are those people who want these services for a fuller look of beard, be it goatee area, cheeks or sideburns.
The number can vary with the goal of the beard transplant. It could be 200-250 for each sideburn, 300-500 grafts for minor filling in to 600-700 for a full goatee, and 300-700 for cheeks. The donor area in this case as well remains the scalp and the hairs that are once taken from the scalp for beard transplant could not be reused for scalp. This is one reason many people considering hair transplant in future are worried about because the donor area will have fewer hair to donate to address male pattern hair loss.Patients of beard transplant should also understand that the most common problem that people face after getting the transplant is the improper angle and direction of the hairs of the beard when they grow up again. They could stay assured with our beard restoration experts in Delhi that all these things are properly taken care of.
Local anaesthesia and oral sedatives are given in order to start the process and hair strip is taken and the skin is sutured up in sitting position. One-hair grafts are used for borderline and two-hair grafts are used for a fuller natural look of the beard. For the same purpose, a combination of beard and scalp hairs is often used. Immediate results match the beard growth of 3-5 days and the crust falls off within 8-10 days of the transplant when kept dry and covered, reducing the graft loss. Occasionally people come for a second time, for touch up and a fuller beard appearance.
