Beards and moustaches are a trend that is here to stay. Rugged beards were associated with the alternative look from the 60s through to the 90s, while the last decade has seen groomed facial hair become synonymous with chic masculinity. While this is great news for guys who have naturally lavish growth on their faces, it is disheartening for those whose follicles are less productive. If you have a patchy beard or sparse moustache and would like to have the styling options that thicker facial hair growth can offer, help is at hand.
A Hair Transplant for Your Beard
An increasing number of men who are unhappy with their beard or moustache hair growth are having hair transplant surgery. The beard hair transplant procedure is the same as scalp hair transplant. Donor hairs are removed from the patient’s head or body and prepared into grafts. The grafts are then implanted into the beard. Special care must be taken to ensure that each graft is positioned to follow natural hair growth patterns to ensure a satisfying final result. In many cases, beard transplant surgery can be performed in just one session.
What to Expect After Beard Transplant Surgery
As with any surgery, it takes time to heal after a beard hair transplant. Good aftercare is important to the quality of the overall result and it is important to follow the instructions provided by the surgeon. In general, beard hair transplant patients are encouraged to avoid strenuous activities during the first few days. Keeping the transplant area clean is essential and will help to speed healing. After the two to three weeks, the donor hair will fall out. This is perfectly normal and only temporarily. Hair growth rates vary between individuals with most patients starting to enjoy the full benefits of the procedure after around 6 months.
