Facial Hair Transplantation

Facial hair transplantation is a procedure which restores hair to areas where facial hair growth is thin or missing. While Facial hair transplantation procedure is most commonly performed on the moustache areas, beards, sideburns and cheeks. Facial hair transplantation is a commonly performed surgical procedure designed to transplant scalp hair to facial regions lacking density and fullness. Our Clinic specializes in FUE surgery. With the FUE procedure the follicular grafts are harvested from the posterior or back portion of the scalp similar to traditional hair transplantation procedures. The new hair grafts are then re-implanted in the facial regions requiring greater facial hair density.

How Well Does The New Hair Grow ?

The new facial hair typically grows like normal facial hair. The texture and other characteristics of the hair follicle harvested from the scalp, once grown back can be groomed, shaved or allowed to grow to any length similar to the original or native facial hair follicle. Once transplanted the new facial hairs are permanent and difficult to tell apart from the original hair.

To ensure natural appearing facial hair, careful placement of the grafts at the correct angle and proper direction is required. For optimal graft survival after donor harvesting, careful handling of the grafts is essential.

How Is Procedure Performed & What are the Results?

Facial hair transplantation procedure is performed under local anesthesia with an oral sedative. The procedure roughly takes 2 to 5 hours depending on the number of grafts harvested. The first few days after the procedure result in tiny crusts forming around each transplanted hair. Typically by the second day, patients are able to travel home and resume non-strenuous activities. The transplanted hairs will begin to fall out at around 4 weeks, and then start to regrow at 3-4 month .
