The beard is a sign of masculinity, implies maturity, and gives confidence in males. The male hormone – testosterone maintains the beard hairs. Facial hair starts to appear after puberty when hormones begins to increase. Everyone has his unique beard pattern and determined by many factors like ethnicity, race, geography, and genetics. Some may have thick and coarse beard hair, while others may have thin and light hair. But some individuals, despite reaching puberty and adulthood, don’t have adequate facial hair and or they have it, but the density is low. And these individuals may be a suitable candidate for the beard and mustache transplantation. During this procedure, hair grafts are transplanted in the beard and mustache region after extracting them from the donor area, most commonly from the scalp by the FUE technique. This procedure is also called facial hair transplantation or beard and mustache reconstruction.
CANDIDATES FOR THE BEARD AND MUSTACHE TRANSPLANT
Males who have little or no beard at all due to different reasons.
To increase the general density of existing facial hair and make it look fuller.
Loss of facial hair due to trauma, surgery, or burns.
Alopecia due to scarring and other skin disorders or abnormalities.
After a cleft lip and palate surgery.
HOW IS IT PERFORMED?
Hair, taken from other parts of the body (back of the head, chest), is used to create a new beard or increase the density of the existing one and make the beard look fuller. We generally use grafts from the back of the head and pay attention to choose hair similar in texture and color to your beard hair. The shape of the beard decided according to the number of grafts and the aesthetic demands of the patient.
Beard and mustache transplant is an aesthetic procedure, so the goal and expectations are most of the time set by the patients. But we do guide and give pieces of advice according to the face geometry, so it fits the patient and meets his expectations. We do mark the areas we are going to work with a special pen and check for symmetry between the two sides.
An essential point in the beard and mustache transplant is the property of the graft and angle of implantation.
Only grafts with single follicles should be used, and graft should be implanted under the angle of 30-35 degrees facing down the face. The multiple grafts can be dissected into separate follicles under the microscope if needed. Otherwise, the results can be catastrophic for the patient.
