What is a beard hair transplant?
If you have been looking to improve the look of your beard or moustache, you might be wondering what beard hair transplant is. It is a procedure of transferring healthy hair follicles from a suitable part of your body to the area you want to increase the beard hair density. As more male fashion icons and celebrities have embraced the stylish beard look, more people started liking well-groomed dense beard.
Which technique is used for beard transplant?
Two different techniques are used for beard hair transplantation: direct hair follicle transplant (DHI) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). Both of these techniques involve extracting individual grafts (follicle units) from the donor area at the back of the head and transplanting them into the desired area on the face.
In the DHI technique, the surgeon takes individual hair follicles and immediately after the extraction, applies them one by one to the desired location using a tool called the Choi Pen.
In the FUE technique, the surgeon cultivates the hair follicles individually, then opens the micro channels in the recipient area and implants them in the previously collected hair follicles. Both techniques are minimally invasive and cause no pain as the procedure is performed under local anaesthesia. Since beard transplant techniques do not involve cuts and stitches, recovery time is shorter and more convenient.
While consulting with your surgeon, you can mention the density and shape of your new stubble. If your donor area is suitable, you can get the thick, well-groomed beard you’ve always dreamed of.
