Having patchy or scant beard is a very common problem but there has not been any treatment for beard hair restoration till recently. With the hair transplant, beard hair restoration has become a reality albeit one has to be very cautious before going for one.
Just like a normal hair transplant, the hair follicles are taken from the scalp of the patient(from the back and sides, as this area forms the safe donor area). These hairs are then implanted in the face to create a beard.
Depending on the look one wants to achieve, patchy areas can be filled, and you can choose to design a thick and sculpted beard.
Even though the process sounds very simple, it is very complicated due to the following reasons.
Implanting facial hair is not an easy task unless the doctor is highly trained. The beard grows in a unique way and the hairs are placed at a unique angle. Implantation requires very precise grid planning and mathematical calculation of how many hairs are to be implanted in each grid.
While designing the beard line, the doctor has to be very artistically oriented and keep the natural irregularities of a beard in mind. Otherwise, the result could look very natural.
It is also very important to understand what is the technique used by the doctor for implanting hairs in the beard area. Most doctors create slits with scalpels in which the extracted hairs are inserted. This technique, unfortunately, gives visible scars on the face and gives very unnatural results as there is very little control on the angle depth and direction of the implanted hair.
DHI Beard Transplant
With the DHI technique, it is now possible to transplant hair to any part of the body and the face. One can achieve a thick, full and natural beard with DHI’s beard transplants. Depending on your goals, DHI can add a filling to a smaller area, to cover patchiness, or achieve a thick, full beard.
Transplanted hair follicles are picked one by one to match the beard; and with DHI’s patented device, there is complete control over the angle, depth and the direction of the implanted hair, for achieving 100% natural results.
For example, see the following case of a beard transplant of a patient Abhirup Paul, at a DHI clinic.
The doctor at DHI thoroughly designs the beard area according to the needs of the patient, and the defined symmetry. (as seen in the below pictures)
The number of the required hairs and the kind of follicle grafts required for natural result and density are counted. The required hair follicles are extracted from the donor area (usually the back of the head). (as seen in the image below)
The extracted hair follicles are placed into the beard area. (Pictures of the patient right after the beard transplant can be seen in the images below)
Beard restoration with DHI restores the natural hair on the beard and the moustache. The implanted hair will grow throughout a person’s lifetime.
Advantages of beard transplant with DHI technique:
- Permanent results that last a lifetime
- No scalpel, no stitches and no scarring
- Natural results that look and feel great
Whether you simply need some patchiness covered up, a fuller moustache or a complete beard, DHI can create the look for you. The first step is to have a confidential consultation to ask any questions you have and discuss options. DHI’s treatment options are personalised to individual requirements, based on sound medical knowledge and experience.
