Facial hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure for those men who suffer from spotty or patchy loss of hair from eyebrows, goatee, parts of the beard, moustache or sideburns. The absence of hair in these areas could be hereditary or due to surgical scars, cuts, burns or other types of accidents. Some medical conditions such as Alopecia areata or chemotherapy treatment for cancer could lead to hair loss.
It is important to understand that facial hair constitutes of beard, moustache, eyebrows and eyelashes. When these facial hairs are not in proper alignment, the face will look odd. Stylish beard or moustache is also considered as a fashion statement among many young men.
A facial hair transplant is generally a minimally invasive procedure. The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and takes 2-5 hours to complete depending on the number of grafts harvested. For facial hair transplant, hair will be removed from the side or the back of the head, via FUE or FUT and healthy hair follicles will be extracted. We commonly use the same FUE technique for this what we use in hair transplantation over the scalp. In this procedure, individual follicular unit grafts (naturally occurring groups of 1-4 hairs in the scalp) are harvested one at a time using a tiny punch from the donor area. The area that needs to receive these hair follicles will be demarcated well in advance, and the surgeon will place the grafts on the patchy bald portions of the beard, moustache or eyebrows. Due to the abundant amount of hair from the donor site, most of the patches can be covered and treated in a single sitting.
In this procedure, direction and orientation of hair are very important. The choice of procedure will be dependent on aspects such as which part of the face is involved and how you want the final design to look like. As there will be minimal scar with the FUE procedure, it is preferred an option for facial hair transplant by most of the patients.
FUE (follicular unit extraction, or sometimes referred to as follicular unit transplantation) is a type of hair transplant surgery that involves extracting individual hair follicles from a donor part of the body, usually the sides and back of the head.
These individual follicles are then implanted in the areas that are affected. Typically, with the men suffering from male pattern baldness this will be the classic horseshoe area.
Once you have undergone FUE, the results are permanent. While the initial transplanted hair will shed a few weeks after treatment, it will grow back strong and healthy.
FUE works by extracting naturally occurring groups of one to four hairs, and transplanting these to the area of the scalp, typically the area that is balding or areas that need hair
Surgeons will first work to remove groups of between one and four hairs. These groups of hairs are typically extracted from the sides of the head or back of the neck, using a specialised extraction instrument less than 1mm in diameter. These follicles are then transferred to the recipient area of the scalp and implanted using a powerful stereo microscope.
We take great care to implant the hairs at the correct angle to mimic the old hair, just as it would naturally grow.
