Not everyone can grow the thick mustache, goatee or beard they desire. Facial hair can be a great option for creating your own personal style. It is also a way to cover skin or facial flaws that you want to hide. If genetics, aging or other factors have left you with less facial hair than you would like, hair transplant surgery may be the solution. We offer beard transplants at City Facial Plastics to give you the facial hair you desire.
Hair transplant surgery has had many advancements in the last decade. The old surgical incision technique has been replaced by FUE, or follicular unit extraction methods, which we use at City Facial Plastics. This involves removing individual hair follicles from the back or sides of the scalp to transplant to another area. There are no stitches or incisions. Each follicle is inserted individually using a follicle punch system.
Adding hair to the facial area can be performed just like scalp hair transplants. Hair follicles are harvested from the scalp and inserted to the desired areas on the face. The new hair follicles take root and begin to grow in their new location.
Who is a Good Candidate for a Facial Hair Transplant?
There are many people who make excellent candidates for facial hair transplants. Some men notice thinning of their facial hair as they get older and want to restore a thicker beard and mustache. Other men may be genetically-inclined to grow thin or even no facial hair. Facial burns, electrolysis, scars and skin conditions can limit hair growth. Transgender female-to-male individuals can also benefit from a facial hair transplant to create the desired appearance.
