Nearly half of all men struggle to grow a full beard and sideburns without patchy spots or areas of uneven growth.
Beard transplant surgery can provide the solution to this, an easy answer which remedies bald patches, helping to create either a full beard or a perfectly sculpted goatee.
Facial hair loss is difficult to hide and is instantly visible, creating a scruffy and unkempt appearance even in the most immaculately-groomed of men.
There are many reasons growing a beard may be desirable; undergoing a facial hair transplant provides the ability to grow and maintain sideburns, moustache or beard, creating a very manly appearance.
Although the trends for facial hair may change with fashion, there will always be the demand for beards and sideburns but even with a good diet and personal grooming, for some men it can be a problem. This may be due to damage which has occurred or simply due to genetic patterns of hair growth.
Undergoing beard restoration surgery can completely change the look of your face, providing sharp lines and a full, carefully trimmed appearance.
The process begins by extracting the donated hair follicles; this is done using either the FUE (follicular unit extraction) or FUT (follicular unit transplant).
FUE works by directly extracting the donor follicles from the head, using a tiny semi-circular incision which allows the individual follicle to be pulled directly from the head. This is then grafted directly onto the beard area.
FUT is a cutting edge technology which involves harvesting the hair follicles and then working microscopically to create hundreds of tiny, natural-looking grafts ready to be implanted.
In both FUE and FUT the scarring to the donor area is kept to a minimum, allowing hair to grow through the scar tissue and ensuring there will be no hair loss in this area..
Both methods require an excellent technique and many years of experience in order to guarantee the results will look natural and minimise scarring to the donor area. Here at the Hair Repair Clinic our hair replacement specialists are experts with many years’ experience in using these techniques.
FUT along with FUE allow our hair replacement experts to provide you with unbelievably realistic results.
A beard hair transplant creates permanent results, putting your hair in the place where you need it the most and putting you in control.
Hair follicles in the beard or moustache all grow individually meaning that for natural looking results; each hair must be implanted individually, placed in the correct direction and in close proximity to its neighbour.
To create a goatee will require 1200 – 1500 grafts
To create a full beard will require 2500 – 3000 grafts
This is an extremely high number of follicles which must all be carefully grafted, requiring patience, a precise hand and plenty of experience in delivering the right results.
