BEARD HAIR TRANSPLANTS
WHAT ARE BEARD HAIR TRANSPLANTS?
Beards are in, so if you are unable to grow thick warm fuzz, don’t feel left out in the cold. We have the answer for you – The Neograft Beard Hair Transplant. This is a very precise procedure performed using our automated Follicular Unit Extractive (FUE) Hair Transplant System called the Neograft. This system uses a superior vacuum extraction technique to expertly harvest hairs from the back of your head. This technique does not leave any nasty scars and it’s virtually pain-free. In fact, once the hair grows back in the donor area, you can’t even tell the follicles were ever extracted. The FUEs are then meticulously transplanted so the new beard growth cannot be distinguished from natural growth.
WHAT SHOULD I KNOW?
This procedure is perfect for anyone who has a partial or patchy beard, scarring in this area, or just can’t grow a beard. It is very important that you be very selective when choosing a specialist to perform your beard hair transplant. Beard hair restoration requires expert technique, artistic ability, precision, and significant experience. The hairs of the beard grow in a pattern at different angles and they must be transplanted in this fashion to give that natural look. Beard hairs also grow in cycles, and even though the hair is harvested from your head, in a few cycles your transplanted hair will grow exactly like your beard hair. It’s AMAZING!
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE INVOLVE?
The procedure is performed in our state-of-the-art surgical facility. The area will be marked with temporary ink to outline the final result and the patient will be asked to verify all markings are to their satisfaction. The FUEs will be extracted from the donor site after the area has been numbed with local anesthesia. Once all the FUEs have been extracted, the area of the face will be numbed with local anesthesia and the grafts will be implanted. When the procedure is completed, you will have a bandage on the donor site that can even be hidden by growing your hair long enough to camouflage it. You go home that same day with minimal pain.
HOW LONG IS RECOVERY AND WHEN CAN I RESUME MY NORMAL ACTIVITIES?
The beauty of this procedure compared to other techniques is there is little to no downtime. Most people return to work the very next day. The donor site hair will be nicely grown in by two weeks. There is no long painful stapled incision and no scarring. It is important to know that hair grows in cycles. Shortly after your transplant process, the transplanted hairs will fall out and your beard will look like it did before the grafting. Don’t PANIC! The hairs will follow their growth cycle and start to regrow in three months. At nine months to a year, you will see full growth.
