beard transplant

Why get a beard transplant?

The beard has made its mark throughout history. It has transcended the individual as a symbol of virility, wisdom, and power since ancient times. In many cases, we associate beards with great thinkers and philosophers like Plato, Socrates, and Marx.

Nowadays, hipsters have taken this style to another level. Others like Leonardo DiCaprio and George Clooney have joined the bandwagon of having a beard as part of their identity, highlighting their manly features.
If you don’t naturally have a beard, you’ve surely asked yourself if getting a beard transplant would be worth it. Beards are not only an aesthetic question; they actually also play a protective role against natural external aggressions.
Not having a beard may be due to different factors, such as genetic predisposition, trichotillomania (pulling hair), burns, traumatic episodes, or as a side-effect of cosmetic surgery with scar formation.

Why get a beard transplant?

If you’re reading this post, it is because you want to know more about whether it is really worth getting a beard transplant. To answer this question, we have to first answer two others. First, we should be clear that beard transplantation is an effective, painless treatment (performed under local anaesthesia) that’s safe and creates a natural appearance. It is especially advisable in cases of imperfections, like bald spots.

How is a beard transplant done?

Hair follicles are extracted following the same method as for hair transplants on the head. To do so, the most modern extraction technology, FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and implantation technology are used. This is done by taking follicles from the donor area (the nape of the neck) and implanting them in the beard. This produces a natural, scar-free result. It’s important to remember that beard hairs have to be follicular units with 1 or 2 hairs for the density to match the rest of the beard. Also, care should be taken to ensure that they go in the same direction as the other hairs.

When do you see the results?

This question is perhaps the most important one to those considering a beard transplant. We always want to know when we will get the results we want. Results may begin to appear starting six months after the surgery, but of course, the longer you let it grow, the more noticeable the results will be.
