Hair transplantation can also be used to restore eyelashes, eyebrows, beard hair, chest hair, pubic hair and to fill in scars caused by accidents or surgery such as face-lifts and previous hair transplants.
Facial hair transplant is a procedure which restores hair to areas where facial hair growth is thin or missing.
Causes for hair loss in Beard area is also considered multifactorial.
Common types include male pattern hair loss, female pattern hair loss, alopecia areata, and a thinning of hair known as telogen effluvium. The cause of male-pattern hair loss is a combination of genetics and male hormones, the cause of female pattern hair loss is unclear, the cause of alopecia areata is autoimmune, and the cause of telogen effluvium is typically a physically or psychologically stressful event. Telogen effluvium is very common following pregnancy.
Transplanting a beard follows the same methods as a regular hair transplant. It can be achieved by performing two options for procedure, FUT (Follicular Unit Transplant) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) to then implant the harvested grafts into the recipient areas affected of the beard or to create a beard. As far as the donor area goes, the grafts can be obtained from the donor areas from the scalp, or if possible and/or desired, it can be harvested from the inferior part of the chin if it is populated enough. The procedure leaves only very minor scars that will be covered by the remaining beard hair. The graft implantation is performed with micro needles individually to leave as little scarring as possible.
