Why is Facial Hair Important?
Beard and moustache are really important for men and they are seen as the signs of masculinity. As in some cultures they also symbolize wisdom, prosperity and strength, facial hair loss can affect men’s psychology negatively. Due to hereditary conditions, immune diseases, ageing or scarring, beard and moustache become thin, spotty or patchy. In some cases they may even disappear completely.
Even if a clean-shaven face is still appealing, growing beard and moustache have become quite popular especially among famous actors like Brad Pitt, Ryan Gosling and Bradley Cooper. For the men who struggle to grow a full beard and moustache or would like to try different beard and moustache styles as Hollywood stars do, beard and moustache transplant is the best and permanent solution.
What is Beard and Moustache Transplant?
Beard and moustache transplant is a procedure that restores hair to areas where spotty or patchy loss of hair occurs. Apart from transplanting hair on beard and moustache areas, it can also be performed on cheeks and sideburns.
The reasons why men have thin beard and moustache, spotty and patchy facial hair loss can be hereditary or because of scars, burns and Trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder). That’s why, the aims of beard and moustache transplant may vary. While for some men only full beard is desired, for the others only a small area on the face can be covered.
For some men, facial hair loss can be a trauma and it may lower their self-confidence. Fortunately, Beard and moustache transplant brings a permanent solution to facial hair loss.
How is Beard and Moustache Transplant Performed?
FUE technique is used for beard and moustache transplant, which means that the hair is extracted from the back of the head and transplanted in to the bald areas of the beard and moustache. As the back of the head has the abundant amount of hair, beard and moustache transplantation always gives satisfying and natural results.
The beard and moustache transplant is performed under local anaesthesia and the procedure lasts between 2 and 5 hours. If the bald area on the face is big, then it may take much more time. For example, 1,500 grafts will be enough to create a goatee while approx. 3,000 grafts will be extracted to achieve a full beard or more density.
