¿How Beard Transplants Work?
Removing and replanting 2,000 to 5,000 hairs one at a time is a lengthy procedure. But it is not as long as one might suppose: A beard transplant can be completed in a day from eight hours to 16 hours. To do this, we give patients an oral sedative, as well as local anesthesia around the head and beard area.
The hairs are then removed one at a time with the FUE technique, abbreviated to follicular unit excision. Previously, doctors removed a strip of skin with hair follicles, which left a prominent scar on the back of the scalp. The FUE Technique, on the other hand, is undetectable to the naked eye. The doctor then makes small incisions in the beard area that determine the direction, density, and angulation at which the hair will grow. The skill of the doctor in this part will determine how natural the beard will look once it has grown out.
Is Hair Transplantation Different?
The beard implant is done in the same way as the hair implant.
Where is the hair for the beard taken from?
Hair should be taken from one donor area to implant it in the beard area. Preferably from the occipital area of the head (nape).
What technique is the most used for the Beard Transplant?
The preferred extraction technique is FUE. This is because it has shorter recovery times than with the strip technique. In addition to avoiding a visible scar.
Being an aesthetic procedure, the procedure must be performed by a surgeon with proven experience in this type of implant.
