Beard Hair Transplant

Beards are a sign of masculinity for men; No or less hair in this area can be unattractive. Beard hair transplantation is the right solution for them. Men who suffer from goatee, baldness, sideburns, or mustache spots can have a beard hair transplant. Beard formation begins at puberty and grows and develops for men in the journey of adult life.

Beard transplant involves enhancing an existing beard or constructing a new beard by transplanting scalp hair to the affected area. FUE or follicular unit extraction is a procedure in which hair follicles are extracted individually as ultra-fine follicular units that are grafted from the back of the head and grafted individually into the beard area.

At Hairfree Hairgrow clinic, we provide beard transplant treatment. Hair Free Hair Grow will provide you with the best solutions for every beard and mustache problem. Here you will meet our experienced doctor who provides beard transplant treatment and tips to maintain it forever.

Causes of Patchy Beard

1) Genetic Factors:

Genetics is one of the biggest factors determining the thickness, length, and shape of our natural beards. In fact, people are born with all the hair follicles they'll ever have, and these follicles determine the thickness and growth pattern of facial hair. If your family has a history of patchy beards or slow facial hair growth, you'll likely experience the same.

2) Hormonal Imbalances:

Hormonal imbalances can also affect beard growth, particularly if you suffer from imbalances. Testosterone is the most influential hormone for facial hair growth in men, and more specifically, a subset of testosterone hormones known as dihydrotestosterone (DHT). DHT levels and your body's natural sensitivity to them are significant contributors to the fullness or patchiness of your beard.

3) Poor Diet/Exercise Habits

The most commonly referenced nutrients needed for healthy beard growth are protein, vitamins A, C, and E, as well as omega-3 fatty acids found in nuts and fish. A poor diet lacking in these nutrients can affect hair growth and lead to patchy beards. Exercise is also essential as it helps balance hormones, contribute to general well-being, and combat a common beard-killer: stress.

4) High Stress

Some studies have shown that stress increases the amount of a chemical called cortisol in our body, which causes decreased levels of DHT and other testosterone compounds. Too much stress can also cause restricted blood flow in capillaries, which are basically the fuel lines that feed your hair follicles.

5) Alopecia Areata

Alopecia areata is a rare condition where your own immune system attacks your hair follicles, leading to hair loss. Alopecia barbae is a specific form of alopecia areata that affects the beard.

Who Needs a Beard Transplant?

The ideal candidates for beard transplant are men experiencing male pattern baldness (MPB) and those who have suffered from burns, injuries, or genetic diseases resulting in patchy or sparse facial hair. 

Additionally, individuals who have lost hair due to genetics, medication, lifestyle factors, or trauma may also be suitable candidates for this procedure. 

It is important for potential candidates to discuss their medical history and expectations with a qualified surgeon to determine if they are a good fit for a beard transplant.

How Does Beard Transplant Work?

In a beard transplant, the surgeon usually divides the face into two parts – the lateral (jaw, cheek, and sideburns) and the front (goatee and mustache). Beard Transplant restores the natural hair on the beard and the mustache. Hair is taken from one part of the body and transplanted to your jawline and wherever you want your beard to grow. Depending on these and other factors, the surgeon may require 1,800 to 2,400 grafts for beard transplant procedures.

Two Main Techniques Used for Beard Hair Transplant

With FUE, the surgeon harvests individual follicular units from the donor area one at a time using a small punch tool. This technique is less invasive and causes minimal scarring, allowing for a faster recovery time.

On the other hand, FUT involves removing a tissue strip from the back of the scalp and then extracting individual hair follicles from the strip. This technique can produce more grafts in a single session, but it does leave a linear scar that can be hidden with longer hair.

At Hairfree Hairgrow, our surgeon will assess your facial hair growth patterns and discuss which technique is best suited for your needs. We will work with you to design a customized treatment plan that takes into account your unique facial features and desired beard style.

The Following Steps are Taken for Beard hair Restoration

Hairline Designing: The doctor thoroughly designs the beard area according to the needs of the patient and the defined symmetry.

Extraction: The required hair follicles are extracted from the donor area (usually the back of the head).

Implantation: The extracted hair follicles are placed into the beard area as per the predetermined design.

Beard Transplant Cost

Beard transplant cost can be an important factor when considering undergoing a beard transplant. The cost of a beard transplant procedure depends on a number of factors, including the clinic’s infrastructure, the location of the clinic, the number of grafts required, and the surgeon’s experience. 

On average, a full beard transplant procedure requires between 1800 to 2400 grafts. The cost per graft can range from 40 Rs to 120 Rs, depending on the clinic and its location. 

A beard transplant may cost a significant amount of money to invest. However, investing in a quality treatment that will last several years is beneficial. It is important to do your research and find a clinic that offers quality services at an affordable price.

Recovery From Beard Hair Restoration Surgery

Your transplanted hairs will begin to fall out 15-30 days after surgery. But one should not panic, as it is a temporary phase. In a period of 90 days,  your beard will complete its growth and most hair follicles will have settled into place. Approximately four months after surgery, your beard begins to gain coverage; by about nine months you will have a full grown beard. 

After about a week to 10 days, you should be able to start shaving normally and trimming your new beard. Your new beard hairs may fall out after 2 or 3 weeks. This is normal, and new hair should grow in to take its place.

After Care Of Beard Hair Transplant

  • To prevent infections, kindly apply antibiotic ointment on your scalp and face.
  • For a few days, kindly steer clear of swimming, direct sunlight, smoking, saunas, hot tubs, and any form of vigorous physical activity that might make you sweat excessively.
  • To avoid any irritation or damage to the harvested or implanted areas, please refrain from touching, rubbing, or scratching them.
  • It is advisable not to wash your face for a few days, and when you do, please be gentle and avoid scrubbing to prevent any harm to the surgical areas.

Side Effects Of Beard Transplant

If you are considering a beard transplant, it is important to keep in mind the potential risks involved in the procedure.

  • swelling
  • redness
  • tightness
  • numbness
  • temporary scabs or crustiness

One possible risk is mild swelling in the transplanted area, which is a common side effect. 

You may also experience redness in the transplanted area, which is also normal and usually resolves on its own. 

Another risk is that the growth of beard hairs may not be as expected, which can sometimes require additional procedures. 

Additionally, mild bruising may be present after the surgery, but this is typically temporary and will go away on its own.
