Beard Restoration

For many men being able to have a full beard or goatee is almost like a badge of honor. It can signify manhood, provide the feeling of being an alpha male, or simply it can help improve or hide certain facial features.

Beard Hair Transplant

Katona Hair - Beard RestorationA beard hair transplant, also known as a facial hair transplant, is a cosmetic procedure that involves taking hair from one part of the body (usually the scalp) and transplanting it to the beard area to create a fuller, thicker beard.

Beards have been a popular style throughout history and their popularity has ebbed and flowed over time. In recent years, there has been a resurgence of interest in beards, and there are several reasons why they have become so popular today.

One reason is that beards are seen as a symbol of masculinity and virility, and many men choose to grow them as a way of expressing their masculinity. Additionally, there is a growing trend towards a more natural and rugged look, and beards fit well with this trend.

Another reason for the popularity of beards is that they are seen as a way to stand out and express individuality. With so many people conforming to similar styles and trends, a beard can be a way to differentiate oneself and make a statement.

The lack of ability to grow a perfect beard has a variety of different factors to consider like:

  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Genetics
  • Skin infections
  • Facial burns or scarring
  • Stress or anxiety
  • Alopecia barbae
  • Vitamin A deficiency
  • Deficiency of amino acids for necessary growth

This causes men to start testing different methods to try and grow a natural looking beard using serums or supplements, though these sometimes don’t provide the desired effect and leads them to think if there are any other solutions.

Well, the good news is that there are. Just like how hair can be restored on top of the head, there are similar techniques that can help restore the hair on your fac

How is a Beard Hair Transplant Performed?

The most common procedure that’s used to restore beards is called Follicular Unit Excision or FUE for short. Dr. Katona will find a suitable donor area to extract hair follicles from which can either be the face or head. Then that hair is extracted from the donor area and transferred to the desired area of the jaw or chin area that will aid in creating a fuller look.

The new facial hair will blend with the existing hair to give it the natural look and they’re watching out for the donated hair follicles to make sure they look the same after they’ve been transferred.

The entire procedure is performed under local anesthesia to make sure that the process is as painless and comfortable as possible for the patient. It can take anywhere between four to eight hours to complete depending on the amount of hair needed.

After a couple of weeks you may find that the transplanted hairs have fallen out, but this is a natural part of the process. Most men experience hair growth within three months giving them the full natural beard that they desire.

Here’s a brief overview of how the procedure is performed:

  1. Consultation: The first step is to consult with a qualified and experienced hair transplant surgeon. During the consultation, the we will examine your beard area, discuss your goals and expectations, and determine if you are a good candidate for the procedure.
  2. Harvesting the hair follicles: The surgeon will then numb the donor area (usually the back of the scalp) and use a small instrument to remove individual hair follicles. The follicles are carefully extracted to ensure their survival and the donor area is closed with sutures or staples.
  3. Preparing the grafts: The extracted hair follicles are then prepared for transplantation. This involves separating them into individual grafts, each containing one to three hairs.
  4. Transplantation: Using a small blade, Dr Katona will make tiny incisions in the beard area and carefully insert the grafts into the incisions. The grafts are placed at a specific angle and density to create a natural-looking beard.
  5. Aftercare: After the procedure, you will be given specific instructions on how to care for your newly transplanted beard. This may include avoiding strenuous activities, keeping the area clean and dry, and taking medication to prevent infection and promote healing.

It’s important to note that beard hair transplant is a surgical procedure that requires skill, expertise, and experience to perform safely and effectively. Dr. Katona is expert in facial hair transplantation including eyebrows, beards and facial scars.
