Affordable Facial Hair Transplant Surgery with Dr. Shelly Friedman
Facial Hair Transplants
Facial hair transplantation replaces hair on areas of the face that are either missing hair or are very sparse in density. It is common to see individuals who are unable to grow a complete goatee or mustache. For many individuals, it is impossible to grow a full beard without looking “patchy”.
For some men, they never had enough facial hair due to genetics, whereas others lost facial hair due to trauma or surgery. It is common to see facial hypotrichosis (lack of facial hair) in Asian and Hispanic men.
Whether the patient wants to thicken the sideburns, cheeks, goatee, or mustache, hair restoration surgery can achieve a very acceptable cosmetic result.
Some men want thin coverage while others want a full or thick appearance. Depending on the surface area requiring coverage and the density of thickness requested, will dictate the number of grafts transplanted.
Whether FUT or FUE is utilized for harvesting, hair from the back and sides of the scalp are transplanted to the desired facial areas. As with transplanting the scalp, the donor grafts will continue to grow for the rest of the patient’s life. Once transplanted, the hair may initially grow with the same texture from the harvested donor region, but in time the hair may trans-form to match the characteristics of the recipient region.
The transplanted facial hair can be trimmed or shaved and will regrow whenever the individual wants a change in his appearance and grow a beard or have a “Bradley Cooper several day beard growth.”
Typically, the transplanted grafts contain one hair follicular units, but on occasion with very fine donor hair, two hair grafts may be utilized. Precise placement in direction and angling of the grafts results in a natural, undetectable facial hair transplant.
