How Is The Procedure Done?
Healthy hair follicles are harvested throughout the operation. Grafts are taken from a donor location on the back or side of the head and implanted to fill in an uneven beard growth pattern or generate a fuller, more beautiful beard.
Individual grafts or a strip of grafts may be extracted. These are the two procedures:
Follicular Unit Grafting (FUT) is a procedure that includes extracting a strip of tissue from the back or side of the head’s donor region. Grafts are then divided into follicular units and implanted one at a time under a microscope.
Follicular Unit Extraction- FUE grafts are retrieved individually in a random manner using a specialized surgical instrument and then implanted into the beard region.
Hair grafts are chosen based on their hue to ensure that the transplanted hairs blend in well with the existing beard hair. To get a completely natural-looking appearance, each graft is inserted individually and expertly at a precisely determined depth and orientation.
Recovery and Timeline for Facial Hair Transplantation
Day 3: You may continue your typical mild, low-impact activities, and most individuals return to work.
Week 1: Any swelling should be gone, and the dried scabs on each shaft should be gone.
Week 2: The hair follicles that haven’t lost their shafts begin to develop and add to the density of facial hair.
Months 4-6: The grafted hair should start to shed slowly, on the other hand, they might not not fall out at all and maintain their blood supply, allowing them to live and begin to develop hair after around 4-6 months.
Month 12: The density of the mustache, sideburns, and beard will be entirely synchronized.
Results Of Beard Transplantation
It is vital, as with any surgical or medical operation, that it be carried out by a highly qualified medical specialist with considerable experience and the ability to provide natural-looking results. Our Toronto experts are top cosmetic and hair transplant surgeons due to their years of expertise, reputation for surgical skill, and aesthetic approach. They work extensively with each client to get the ideal beard pattern and a completely natural look.
Your accomplishments will endure a lifetime. The hairs will shed for the first two weeks following the surgery. This shedding has no long-term consequences and is to be anticipated. Within a few months, you’ll see significant new beard growth in the transplanted location. You may anticipate continuous natural beard growth from that point forward.
Are There Any Risks Or Negative Effects To Be Concerned About?
As with any surgical procedure, there is a possibility of infection and some bleeding, but in the case of hair transplantation, these risks are quite low. It is possible for the hair follicles to get infected and irritated on occasion. There is also the chance of scarring at the site of the injury, but most hair will grow back over the region over time. Because results might vary, it is important to be realistic in your expectations.
How Long Will It Take For My Beard To Grow After Transplant?
Within three to six months, you will see considerable progress. The new hairs are noticeable after surgery, but they will eventually fall off. This is an expected aspect of the procedure. When the shedding cycle is finished, new hair will start to grow. A beard transplant will give you thicker, fuller facial hair for the rest of your life.
Who is a Candidate for Facial Hair Transplantation?
For people with thin or spotty beard growth, thin sideburns, thin mustache, or thin eyebrows, the FUE facial hair transplant treatment is an excellent choice.
Facial hair transplants, like any other hair transplant, need a sufficient number of donor hairs. We’ll determine if you have the needed hairs during your first consultation to match your objectives and desired appearance.
