The first thing that comes into mind when you hear the word hair transplant is the restoration of scalp hairs. While the technique is term is primarily used for scalp restoration, facial hair restoration, including moustache, goatee, sideburns and beard transplant is also gaining continuously increasing popularity.
An increasing number of men of all ages, races and ethnicities are getting beard transplants nowadays as facial hairs are once again into fashion. Beard and mustaches are considered two notable signs of masculinity, but not everybody is blessed with a lush beard. If patchy beard is bothering you as well, get a beard transplant now and feel confident. However, before you head to a hair restoration clinic, here are few things you need to know before getting a beard transplant. They will help you have realistic expectations about a beard transplant.
It Is a Process Similar To Hair Transplant
Beard transplant is just like hair transplant performed on the scalp. Donor hairs are taken from the back or sides of your scalp using either of FUT and FUE harvesting technique. These harvested hairs are then transplanted into the empty patches in your beard. It is the job of your surgeon to select the donor area. He/she will select the grafts closely similar in color and texture to your facial hair.
You Should Have Sufficient Donor Hair
To be a candidate for beard transplant, you should have enough donor hair supply to be transplanted into the bald patches on your face. If you are suffering from severe baldness and do not have enough balding resistant hair at the back or sides of the scalp, a beard transplant may not be for you. Although body hair transplants have helped overcome this limitation to some extent, hair on your body generally do not match an individual’s facial hair.
It Is a Time Taking Procedure
Like scalp hair restoration, beard transplant is also a lengthy procedure that takes about 3 to 5 hours for its completion, depending upon the number of grafts required to cover the bald patches and add the desired hair density.
You Will Not Grow a Fuller Beard Overnight
Growing a beard is a time-taking process and same goes for beard transplant. Don’t expect to grow a fuller and thicker beard overnight. It takes several months before the transplanted hair start growing. In fact, initially your beard will go worse before the things will start becoming better and under control. You may also shed the transplanted hair before they will start to grow like existing beard hair. This is due to shock loss caused by the trauma that your beard goes through while the hairs are transplanted.
