Best kept Beard is not only a style statement but a sign of machoism. Men really want to flaunt it. Sometimes, there is deficiency of hair in the Beard area leading to a less dense Beard. In these cases, Beard Transplant is strongly indicated.
A Beard Transplant involves taking Hair from other areas of the body and transplanting it into the area of Jawine where you want to grow the Beard.
Basically 2 types of Beard Transplant is available :
The FUT method of Beard transplant involves taking a strip with hair follicles from the donor site, this donor site can be back of your head usually. From this skin , smaller groups of tissues containing hair follicles are separated and prepared for transplantation . Meanwhile, the recipient site is reading to receive the follicles by creating tiny spaces in the jaw area . The surgery is done in local anesthesia and at Clinic Eximus you have the option of getting it done under Conscious sedation.
FUE Method is a more comprehensive method wherein the disadvantages of FUT method are overcome. Instead of taking the strip of Skin with Hair follicles , FUE involves harvesting individual hair follicles from the donor site and then transplanting it to the recipient site. Donor site can be back of head, beard , chest etc. Though it is more tedious and skill related , it prevents the appearance of scars at the donor site and hence a preferred method because of lower downtime and faster recovery .
Yes, the hair is usually taken from the back of the head and that hair is resistant to any changes.
Since the beard hair needs to be thick , the hair should be picked from a location that has thicker hair like the back of head, chest etc.
It usually depends on the number of follicles that need to be transplanted and also on the expertise of the Surgeon.
Procedures are done under local anaesthesia and at Clinic Eximus you have the option of undergoing the Beard transplant under Nitrous Oxide Conscious Sedation , that makes it most comfortable and painless.
