Beards are not just a momentary trend – their popularity has skyrocketed over the past 10 years. Whether hipsters or businessmen, a well-groomed beard has become a definite yardstick by which to measure a man’s attractiveness. How many men can just grow the perfect beard by tossing their razors, though? Most men would probably like to change the density or shape of their facial hair, but not everybody can achieve the perfect level of scruff. Fortunately, facial hair transplant is a reality.
It’s not weird to want a great-looking beard. The popularity of beards is not so much a mystery now, compared to the years when a clean-shaven look was the only way to go. As a consummate sign of masculinity, facial hair has signaled strength, masculinity, and more recently, hipness. We see many professional musicians and athletes going no shave all year, rather than no shave November.
For those unable to grow the beard they want to see in the mirror, facial hair transplant is a minor procedure that provides a permanent and attractive solution to patchiness or complete lack of hair growth on the face.
While under local anesthesia and relaxing with TV or music, hair follicles are removed from the back of the head or other area of dense growth. You and your hair transplant surgeon will choose the kind of hair you want to see on your face. The color, thickness and texture will be the same as it is on your head.
The placement of hair is determined prior to the facial hair transplant. You can have a beard in any shape that you want. And facial transplants are not limited to only beards. It could be just a moustache or a goatee, or you can have your sideburns shaped so that you never have to worry about them looking scruffy again.
Recovery time is minimal. Because you are awake for the procedure, you can go about your day’s activities after getting your transplant. Although the newly transplanted hair will fall out shortly after the procedure, the follicles will regrow your own hair in about three months. The good news is that hair transplants are permanent. You won’t have to do anything to maintain your beard other than keep it the length that you want.
Hair transplant is an aesthetic art as well as a medical procedure. The shape of your beard or other facial hair is determined by your surgeon. Each hair must be implanted with attention paid to the direction in which it grows for the most natural and attractive appearance. The hair follicles taken from the donor area need to be removed with care to avoid scarring.
