Facial hair growth is dependent on many factors. Genetics play a significant role in whether you can achieve a full, thick beard or mustache, but injury, hormone imbalances and other health conditions can impact facial hair. If you have patchy facial hair and want to grow a thick, glorious beard, a hair transplant procedure may be right for you. Elite Hair Transplant Center provides beard transplant surgery for our patients at our facility in Beverly Hills, CA.
Not everyone can grow the facial hair they desire. Hereditary traits could determine whether you can grow even thick facial hair. Testosterone levels also impact facial hair growth – if levels are low, you may not have the ability to grow the beard you want. Skin infections and scarring can also affect beard growth and appearance if the hair follicles are damaged. A beard transplant can be the solution if you have any of these issues affecting your facial hair.
What Is a Beard Transplant?
The new technology available in hair transplant procedures can create the facial hair you desire. Follicular unit extractions (FUE) using the NeoGraft® system is the ideal method to harvest hair grafts from the scalp and transfer them to the face. This is an automated system that does not require any incisions or stitches, which means no visible scars once the skin and scalp heal.
NeoGraft uses an automated pneumatic system that is controlled by our board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Obaid Chaudhry. This system gently extracts hair grafts from the back of the scalp and transplants the follicles to the desired position. The automated controls place less stress on the hair grafts, which results in a higher success rate for survival of the follicles in their new location. The procedure can be completed under local anesthesia with little or no discomfort for the patient.
Imagine having a thick beard to shape and groom. If you are ready to explore beard transplant surgery, contact us at Elite Hair Transplant Center. Our team can schedule a facial hair transplant consultation with Dr. Chaudhry to discuss your options.
