Beard and Moustache Transplant is a procedure that restores hair to areas where spotty or patchy loss of hair occurs. Apart from transplanting hair on beard and moustache areas, it can also be performed on cheeks and sideburns.
The reasons why men have thin beard and moustache, spotty and patchy facial hair loss can be hereditary or because of scars, burns and Trichotillomania (hair pulling disorder). That’s why, the aims of Beard and Moustache Transplant may vary. While for some men only full beard is desired, for the others only a small area on the face can be covered.
For some men, facial hair loss can be a trauma and it may lower their self-confidence. Fortunately, Beard and Moustache Transplant brings a permanent solution to facial hair loss.
FUE technique is used for Beard & Moustache Transplant, which means that the hair is extracted from the back of the head and transplanted in to the bald areas of the beard and moustache. As the back of the head has the abundant amount of hair, beard and moustache transplantation always gives satisfying and natural results.
The beard and moustache transplant is performed under local anaesthesia and the procedure lasts between 2 and 5 hours. If the bald area on the face is big, then it may take much more time. For example, 1,500 grafts will be enough to create a goatee while approx. 3,000 grafts will be extracted to achieve a full beard or more density.
