Facial Hair Transplant
Facial hair transplant procedures are ideal for restoring hair in areas where facial hair growth is poor, thin, or absent. They are performed to restore beard, moustache, eyebrows, eyelashes, sideburns, and even hide scars from acne or any trauma.
Hereditary, electrolysis, surgery, laser hair removal, burns, and injury are key reasons behind facial hair loss. The goal of these procedures varies from thin coverage of a limited facial area to full restoration of beard. Facial hair transplants can also be performed to achieve hair in areas where there is no hair or in areas where fullness is desired.
The number of grafts for facial hair transplants depends entirely on individual needs. The average requirement of grafts for moustache is 350-500 grafts, 600-900 grafts for a full goatee, 200-300 for each sideburn, and 300-900 grafts for each cheek beard. The average number of grafts required for eyebrow restoration is 50-400 per eyebrow. Patients can also opt for more procedures (smaller ones) to achieve more than moderate density.
The donor hair for a beard or moustache hair transplant procedure come from the lower back of the scalp while donor hair from the sides of the scalp are an ideal match for sideburns.
