When severe accidents occur and damage your face, a scar is formed causing the hair to stop growing in that areas of the face, people may also seek a hair transplant surgery in these areas. Scarring due to another type of surgery such as a tumour or birthmarks removal surgery within the hairy regions of the face is another reason to undergo an eyebrow or facial hair transplant.

This hair fall treatment surgery procedure is similar to the standard hair transplant surgery methods, where the hair is extracted from the back of the scalp and transferred to the desired areas. A small incision is made on the scalp to remove a thin strip of tissue. The tissue is dissected by hand under a microscope into individual hair follicles. Using a small needle, the hair cosmetic surgeon makes tiny holes or tunnels where the hair transplant is needed. Each graft is placed in its own tunnel until all the necessary hairs are transplanted.

Things to Consider Before Getting a Facial Hair Transplant

10 Things to Know If You’re Considering a hair Transplant surgery

Facial hair transplant

Patchy-bearded men or thin-haired women can now seek help through hair transplants surgery. After all your attempts to grow hair naturally have failed you can now opt for hair transplant.  There is a tremendous increase in the number of patients seeking facial transplant for beard, eyebrows, moustache etc in the past five years. Whether you’re considering a facial hair transplant for little or more hair need you may consider the following-

  • The cost of hair transplant procedure

    For people who really need that look that comes with facial hair, the fees of more than $5000 are peanuts when compared to the satisfaction that comes from a full and lustrous facial look. For anyone on a budget, this price tag is outrageous, especially when compared to practical cosmetic surgery, which now runs less than $1,000.

  • You can get the facial look you always wanted

    Just like a haircut, you may carry a photograph, because you can let the cosmetic surgeon know how you want your new beard to look. Tell the cosmetic surgeon to give you a celebrity like a look and you’ll walk out with a camera-ready face.

  • But you’ll have to sacrifice some hair from your body

    In this case, your eyebrows, beard or moustache is made from hair that comes from the body. This new hair most closely resembles the hair grown on the face. Or rather, the hair you wish grew around the chin.

  • The transplanted hairs fall outpost two weeks

    But don’t worry—they promptly grow back around three months later. Just keep your faith in your cosmetic surgeon.

  • You’ll probably have to take a day off

    The hair transplant procedure takes between two to five hours but rarely requires a second round or a day for your hair treatment.

  • Facial hair transplants aren’t just for the mustache or beard zone

    You can also get eyebrow and sideburn transplants! We hereby coin the term “hair tattoo,” describing a patch of hair strategically installed anywhere on the body. Used in a sentence: “I’m thinking of getting a hair tattoo of the Brooklyn skyline across my shoulders.”

  • It actually works

    This guy had a single procedure with 2,300 grafts. Eight months later, he’s sporting a relatively full beard.

  • The Brits are especially excited about beard transplants

    In 2012, 4,500 men in the UK got facial hair transplants, 13% more than in 2011. No word on what percentage of these patients lives in hipster-heavy East London.

  • The results can boost your confidence

    One patient says the transplant helped cover scars on his chin and made it easier for him to approach women.

  • Sadly, you cannot be a beard donor

    Well, maybe you could, but it sure would be tough to find a perfect hair match, right? Imagine the money Johnny Damon could make every few months.

Limitations and Risks of the Eyebrow and Facial Hair Transplant

Eyebrow and facial hair transplant are limited in regards to the density that you can obtain with the transplanted hair. They will not be a thick or dense as a very bushy eyebrow. It is because transplanted hair must be placed within the little space between in order for each one to have adequate blood flow. If they are placed too close together they will not have ample blood flow and the grafts will not survive.  If the density of the transplanted hair is not as thick as the patient hopes for after the procedure, many patients have a touch-up procedure six months to a year after the initial procedure to add a little more density to the previously treated area.

Although an infection is very rare with this type of procedure, there is a risk of infection associated with any surgery. There is also the risk of “shock loss” where the natural hair that surrounds the implanted hair experiences minor trauma from the procedure and it sheds. However, this is very rare when planting hair on the eyebrow or beard region because the area is already hairless or very sparse, to begin with.

Recovery Post Eyebrow and Facial Hair Transplant Surgery

In general, the recovery after the eyebrow and facial hair transplant surgery is estimated at about a week due to swelling, redness, or bruising. A patient who has their eyebrows transplanted could have extensive eyelid swelling but this typically resolves in 5 days. Patients often experience bruising and itching during the healing period. After the transplant procedure, the patient will not be permitted to swim or submerge their face in the water for at least 10 days. When it comes to taking a shower, patients cannot allow direct spraying from the shower onto the grafted area for the first week. The doctor will explain the appropriate facial cleansing instructions after the procedure.

How Good Is the Near Facial Hair After a Facial Hair Transplant?

The new facial hair typically grows like existing facial hair. The texture and other characteristics of the hair follicle harvested from the scalp, once grown back can be groomed, shaved or allowed to grow to any length similar to the original or native facial hair follicle. Once transplanted the new facial hairs are permanent and difficult to tell apart from the original hair.

To ensure natural appearing facial hair, careful placement of the grafts at the correct angle and proper direction is required. For optimal graft survival after donor harvesting, careful handling of the grafts is essential. At Orange County Hair Restoration, our office uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP), Hypothermosol, and the Cole Chiller device to reduce ischemia-reperfusion injury and increases the survival of the hair grafts after surgery.
