Beard Transplant in Chicago

It’s true gentlemen, studies show that women feel more attracted to a man with facial hair! In several experiments, women have rated men with beards as more masculine and good potential fathers. It’s not only the ladies that love a bearded man, however. Studies have also shown that men also have more respect for a man with a beard than clean shaved. 

These days, every man is trying to achieve a masculine, rugged or sophisticated look with a good beard. Men have been using beard oils and all sorts of remedies to get rid of patches in their beards. If you have been trying hard to get you beard in thicker but haven’t succeeded, consider a beard transplant surgery. 

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.

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.

Getting a beard transplant will allow you to take total control of your looks once and for all. You will be able to try out all of the beard styles that you have imagined. Your follicles will be permanently grafted in so it will grow and function like you have always had it! Plus the procedure will is not as painful as you might be thinking it is. You will only feel small pinches while the hair is being implanted and you’re done!

1. Do Beard Transplants hurt?

Getting a beard transplant is totally painless! You will be given a local anesthesia to numb the beard area during the surgery. While the surgery is going on, you can use your phone, watch a movie, or listen to music. At IHI, we will create a relaxing and stress free experience for you so that it will be easier to put your mind at ease on your surgery day. So don’t worry, at IHI Clinic, you are our family!

2. How Many Grafts Do I Need for a FULL Beard?

The bigger the beard, the more grafts will be required. The amount of grafts that an individual needs to fill in a full beard area depends on how much facial hair they already have. Filling in a full beard assuming one doesn’t have any facial hair would take 2500-3000 grafts. Jose, in the photo above, didn’t have much facial hair to begin with. However, he ended up getting a full beard at the end of the surgery with 2000 grafts.
