Facial Hair Transplants Explained

A facial hair transplant involves extracting healthy hair follicles from a donor area, arranging the follicles according to texture and survival rate, and transferring them to the face to create natural hair growth. Facial hair transplants are a form of advanced hair restoration procedures that involve transplanting scalp hair to facial regions of eyebrows, mustache, or the beard that don’t have the proper hair density and volume. 

At The Hair Transplant Center – Virginia, patients who want to proceed with facial hair transplants can choose to take advantage of the most dynamic follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair restoration procedure to gather hair follicles. 

After collecting small groups of hair follicles where they grow in abundance at the back of the head, our hair restoration specialist transplants these follicular units to areas on the face to attain new hair growth. Hair transplantation can help you achieve a stunning new appearance to help you attain natural hair growth on various regions of your face.

Hair Transplants for Mustaches

Hair transplants for mustaches involve harvesting hair follicles from a person’s donor site and transplanting them to areas of the face that don’t yield proper hair growth or have a very thin region to create a new mustache. Mustache hair transplants employ follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques to enhance growth of mustache hair. 

Our hair transplant surgeon at The Hair Transplant Center – Virginia is a highly trained hair transplant specialist who employs specific devices to implant healthy follicles in areas of the face such as the upper lip region. You can take advantage of this expertise if you are experiencing irregular or scattered mustache growth. Our hair transplant procedures can also assist individuals who have special conditions such as alopecia that result from a cleft palate. New hair growth can provide natural hair coverage and a robust definition to the midfacial region.

Hair Transplants for Beards

A beard hair transplant extracts hair from an individual’s donor site and transplants it to the jawline on the face, cheeks, chin, or other regions of the face where men want beards to grow. 

To perform this procedure, our hair transplant surgeon will cut a small strip of tissue from the back of the head and remove hair follicles from the tissue using the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique. Our hair transplant surgeon will transplant these hair follicles to the cheeks, chin, and jawline to attain a full beard. Approximately, 500 to 600 grafts will create a thick beard.

Hair Transplants for Eyebrows

Are you relying on makeup products to “fill in” thin or scattered eyebrow hair? You may desire a more permanent solution, such as an eyebrow hair transplant. 

Our hair transplant specialist can expertly perform a hair transplant for eyebrows by transferring hair follicles to your brow area. The goal is to attain new hair growth from these grafts to yield a fuller, filled-out look for your eyebrows. 

The follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique helps with this procedure to correct hair growth that may have been affected by plucking and waxing. Transplanting healthy follicles to your eyebrow area can enhance your natural eyebrows and help you attain the sleek lines and natural look you want. While the procedure seems simple, you should consider several factors such as cost, risks, and side effects.

What Are the Benefits of Facial Hair Transplants?

When your facial hair grows unevenly or fails to grow at all, you may not know how to respond. Constant shaving may cause skin irritation, and diffused patches of facial hair growth may not be the look you desire. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) can help restore a mustache, beard, and eyebrows and contribute to consistent hair growth in these areas. Consider the following benefits of facial hair transplantation: 

  • Encouraging growth of natural hair. 
  • Highly selective harvesting process.
  • Precise placement of healthy hair follicles.
  • State-of-the-art hair transplantation devices.

Eligible Candidates for Facial Hair Transplants

If you want consistent hair growth in your beard, eyebrows, and mustache region, you may be a suitable candidate for an FUE facial hair transplant. However, you need to have enough donor hair at the back of your head (just above the neck) to offer a proper supply of follicles necessary for a facial hair restoration.

A Personal Facial Hair Consultation in Northern Virginia 

During your initial consultation, you can discuss how you’d like to transform the areas of your face with minimal hair growth with our hair transplant surgeon. You can provide photos to illustrate your aesthetic desires of how you’d like your beard, eyebrows, and mustache to appear, or you can provide past photos of yourself to give our hair restoration specialist a foundation from which to work for you. 

Preparation for a Facial Hair Transplantation

Our hair transplant specialist at The Hair Transplant Center – Virginia will give you detailed directions to help prepare you for a facial hair transplant. Our hair transplant surgeon will demonstrate how to treat the hair in your donor site before the transplant occurs and steps for moisturizing your face before the procedure occurs. Carefully following these guidelines will help your FUE facial hair transplant proceed without problems.

Procedure for Facial Hair Transplantation

Follicular units are microscopic elements. Each follicular unit graft contains one to three hair follicles extracted from the donor site, the area where our hair surgeon harvests the follicles. We use the ATERA FUE system to identify areas of healthy hair growth, cradling the hair at the roots as the follicles are collected efficiently and with considerable care and safety.

A facial hair transplant requires the creative, skillful hands of an experienced hair transplant physician. Our hair transplant surgeon will study the type of hair follicles collected to determine the most appropriate location for hair transplantation. For example, mustache hair should be finer and more elongated than chin hair. Our hair transplant surgeon can evaluate your hair growth desires and create a plan for the positioning of each follicular unit graft.

Recovery From Facial Hair Transplantation and Results

Several hours after your facial hair transplant occurs, you may experience some discomfort in the area from which our hair transplant surgeon harvested the hair from your scalp. You may wish to apply a cold pack or soothing lotion to the hair donor site. 

FUE facial hair implants produce tiny pinpricks from the area where follicles get extracted. These pin-sized marks will typically heal by themselves within 48 hours, and the full healing process should wrap up over the next two days. 

If you discover that your transplanted hairs fall out of the transplant area after two weeks, don’t worry. This situation is normal. After three months, transplanted follicular units will stimulate new hair growth.
