Beard transplant is a procedure in which hairs are transplanted into the beard. The transplanted hairs are harvested from through two different techniques which are known as Follicle Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicle Unit Transplantation (FUT). In this procedure, the beard is either enhance or reconstructed. In both reconstruction and enhancement, the hairs used are harvested from the scalp. The usage of beard hair for reconstruction is considered an ineffective procedure.
Mostly in this procedure hairs are removed from the back of the scalp which is known as donor zone. Hairs located in that region of the scalp are resistant to hair loss and they can withstand the transplant. Not every patient has enough hair on the donor area and some even don’t have hairs at all. In case that a person doesn’t have hair on the scalp then hairs are harvested from other parts of the body such as arms, legs or chest.
In case of scalp hair transplant procedure, if a person doesn’t have hair on the back of the scalp then hairs are harvested from the beard and are transplanted in the scalp. Some patient has a condition known as Alopecia Universalis in which there are no hairs on any part of the body beside scalp. In which case hair can be harvested from the scalp and transplanted but not the other way around.
Beard hair transplant is same as scalp hair transplant and there is a small difference between the two. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia same as scalp hair transplant. The procedure generally takes 2 to 6 hours and depends on the number of hairs being transplanted. The hair could be either harvested through FUT or FUE and the choice will depend upon the patient’s desires with a doctor’s consent. The transplanted hairs will be taken from back or side of scalp or sides of the scalp.
During the procedure, the surgeon will choose the donor site with a high resemblance to the facial hairs so that they could blend in with the facial hair and look natural. The hairs transplanted through this procedure are permanent and when performed by a skilled surgeon the color of hair will look visually the same. The hair that you get as a result would be totally natural and you can do whatever you want with them and can even shave them.
The procedure in itself is basically painless and there is only little discomfort involved after the procedure. During the first five days after your surgery, you need to keep your hair dry. One day after your procedures you can return to non-strenuous activities. The doctor will advise you to avoid touching the area of transplant so that the hair follicle could take root and rest in their new location to make sure that blood flow to them is not uninterrupted and they are not disturbed. The hair transplanted during the procedure will fall after two weeks and the growth of new hairs will start to grow three months after the procedure.
Beard hair transplant is an effective procedure and can hide acne, burns, and scars. It’s also good for the people that have limited natural facial hairs.
