(Beard, mustache, and sideburn transplantation)
For various reasons ranging from trauma to genetics, some patients have scant facial hair for their beard, mustache, or sideburns. Some have small deficiencies in these areas; others have a complete lack of hair density.
Follicular unit hair transplantation is an excellent technique to restore facial hair. Hair from the scalp is taken through the traditional strip follicular unit transplantation or the follicular unit extraction technique. The hair is then transplanted to the face, one by one, to restore the sideburns, beard, or mustache.
Depending on the area to be filled, anywhere from a few hairs to thousands can be transplanted resulting in great natural appearing results with good densities.
Facial hair transplantation is becoming more and more common, and it can be very beneficial for men who would like to enhance the appearance of their beards. Hair transplants performed on the cheeks, sideburns, mustache, and/or goatee areas can provide patients with a solution to fill in certain places along the face where hair grows very thin or not at all.
Like traditional hair transplant surgery, the donor hair will be taken from the sides or back of the head, depending on which areas provide the best possible match to the facial hair. After the procedure, the transplanted hair should grow like natural facial hair and can be shaved and cared for as normal.
Whether your goal is a “hipster beard” or simply to fill in areas of facial hair that do not grow to your liking, HairHungary by Hair Aesthetic Clinic offers advanced techniques that can help you meet your needs.
