FUE Beard and Moustache Hair Transplant
Beard and moustache hair transplant surgery uses the technique of FUE to restore hair around the beard and moustache zones for patients with disconnected beards or for patients who can’t grow facial hairs either due to hereditary reasons or due to past trauma skin trauma. The method relies on hairs found in the back of the head as donor area to guarantee a natural appearance.
Once the hair follicles are extracted from said donor area, they will then be implanted on the upper lip, chin, sideburn, or jaw area; under the effect of anesthesia. To ensure scar-free immaculate results, the hair transplant surgeons at Vera Clinic are careful to use equipment with the right sized blades depending on the patient’s hair follicles. Moreover, the hair transplant technicians at Vera Clinic are intensely practiced in this field, possess great attention to detail, and skillful enough to perform this procedure.
FUE Hair Transplant Recovery and Results
During the recovery period, the patient needs to note that shaving is prohibited in the first 10 days of the surgery. Crusting and redness may appear and will fade out within a week. It is expected for the patient to be able to resume normal daily activity in the first 2 days, however laughing and talking should be kept to a minimum. Shedding of the implanted hairs is to be expected within a fortnight of the surgery, this should not be a cause for worry as it is natural and the hairs will begin to re-grow in a couple months’ time. Optimal growth will appear in 4 to 6 months post-surgery.
Duration of Surgery
The duration of FUE facial hair transplant depends on how many grafts need to be extracted and transplanted, but it takes 3-5 hours on average for it to be completed.
