Is a beard transplant right for you?

You may not want to sport a beard all the time, but feel it would be nice to have the choice, for example, when participating in Movember to raise awareness of men´s health issues. Is your beard incomplete with sparse patches or thin with low hair density? If you would like a fuller, thicker beard it is very possible to achieve with a facial hair transplant.

A beard transplant, really?

Beard transplant surgery is in demand. As facial hair returns as a fashion trend, it has become a popular option for those looking to achieve a fuller, stronger beard .

The beard transplant process is not unlike the scalp hair restoration procedure. A facial hair transplant involves harvesting hair follicles from a donor area (the back of the head or elsewhere). Either FUT or FUE hair transplant techniques can be used to perform a beard transplant.

Things to consider if you’re thinking about a beard transplant

As the beard transplant procedure grows in popularity, the number of surgeons offering it will increase to meet demand. This is not necessarily a bad thing; however, this is a particularly sensitive procedure, because facial skin is  delicate. You should only trust an establishment that has carried out hundreds of these procedures. Choosing the wrong clinic may have serious consequences, such as  facial scarring.

What results are possible?

Whether you have never grown facial hair due to genetics or you have lost your facial hair, the results you can achieve will look just like a natural beard. Vinci Hair Clinic specialises in and is dedicated to hair restoration, including beard transplants. Your consultation with a Vinci hair restoration specialist will involve discussing your goals, the design of your beard and the technique to perform the beard transplant. On the right candidate, it is now possible to achieve defined sideburns and a full beard, depending on the number of follicular units transplanted.

The procedure is often completed in a one day, and the results will fully mature over the following twelve months. After the follicles are established and your beard begins to grow, you will be able to shave and style as desired to achieve your preferred look.
