What is Facial hair restoration?

Facial hair restoration

A patchy beard is a common facial hair loss condition that affects many men. In a facial hair transplant, it is easy to achieve the best result with a simple procedure. A beard treatment offers the best facial hair restoration solution for those whose facial hair is not evenly distributed along the jawline. The latest beard transplant procedures have made it easier for surgeons to achieve a more natural look with easy and practical steps. Doctors either enhance the existing beard or reconstruct a new beard in a Beard transplant procedure. They often perform facial hair transplant procedures by removing scalp hair from healthy areas and implanting them in parts of the face that refuse to grow hair. Graft hairs may also be harvested in various body areas, including the chest and the pubic areas. Dr. John Kahen at Beverly Hills Hair Restoration performs a facial hair transplant procedure with the patient's needs in mind. BHHR offers first-class beard transplants for all Beverly Hills residents.

How does facial hair
restoration work?

Understanding the anatomy of facial hair transplants is critical before going for it. Beard surgery is about transferring graft hair from one place of the body to the beard area of the face. Beard starts to form when a man reaches puberty, and it will continue to spread, forming more beards under the chin and above the chin, forming a moustache, and sideburns on the sides of the face as a man grows into an adult.

The beard transplant procedure is pretty simple since it is influenced by beard growth. As we mentioned earlier, the surgeon will extract healthy hair from the donor region (any area of the body that has healthy hair) and implant it in the beard area on any area of the face that requires facial hair. Healthy hair, usually resistant to hair loss, comes mainly at the back of the head.

This hair is usually healthy enough to withstand a hair transplant. If the donor area doesn't have enough hair, the doctor may decide to find other areas of the body that have healthy hair. These areas include the chest, arms, back, legs, and pubic hair. These areas are usually used in beard transplantation. However, several conditions will not allow effective beard transplants.

One is Alopecia Universalism (failure to have sufficient hair cover on your body). Dr. John Kahen from Beverly Hills Hair Restoration usually divides the face into two parts when performing a facial hair transplant. One of them is the literal area that covers the cheek, sideburns, and jaw. The other part is the front, which consists of the moustache and goatee. These factors will determine the number of grafts the doctor will use. This usually ranges from 800 to 3,000 grafts.

What's the facial
hair restoration procedure like?

Going through facial hair restoration is usually with minimal discomfort. The reason is that the doctor will use local anesthesia to numb the surgery area before the procedure begins. However, there might be some slight discomfort during surgery. After the procedure, you may also experience inflammation and redness in the surgery area. This shouldn't bother you because this will subside in a few days. Below is generally what the procedure involves:


Regardless of whether the doctor will use the FUT or FUE techniques, they will first extract graft hair. This is known as harvesting, which is done in areas that have healthy hair to evaluate hair follicles. At BHHR, we harvest single hair follicles using the latest FUE or FUT technologies for density and naturalness.


Once the doctor has harvested enough graft hair to implant in the beard area, he will inject the recipient side with local anesthesia to reduce discomfort. If the FUT hair transplant is used, the surgeon implants each follicular unit into the patient's facial skin. This allows the doctor to customize the beard's shape according to the patient's facial hair transplant needs.


Recovering from the beard implant surgery will only require a few days. This doesn't mean that the results will be immediate. It takes about 3 to 6 months to see noticeable results. Before that happens, you will experience tiny crusts forming at the newly transplanted hair site that will flake out in just a few days. You can resume normal beard shaving within a week or within ten days. The implanted hair is expected to fall out within 2 to 3 weeks. This phase is completely normal and paves the way for new beard growth.
