Facial Hair Transplant Surgery at PAI Medical in McLean, Virginia
Beard & Moustache Transplant Surgery
A beard transplant is an excellent choice for men wishing to permanently and effectively cover scarring, fill in patches where hair is thin or non-existent in the beard, moustache, or sideburn areas.
If you have difficulty growing a beard, you are not alone. The popularity of beard and facial transplants has skyrocketed. Depending on your individual goals, full beard transplants as well as partial facial transplants can be performed to help you have a full, natural looking beard, sideburns, or moustache.
How Do Beard Transplants Actually Work?
The science and artistry of beard transplantation is virtually the same as regular hair transplantation. Donor hair is harvested from the back of the patient’s head and transplanted to the areas where more hair is desired. The donor area on the back of the patient’ head is naturally resistant to the effects of DHT which is the principle cause of hair loss. Hair transplanted from this “safe area” retains it’s natural genetic properties and continues to grow for the rest of the patient’s life. One of the questions we get most often is, “how long will my beard transplant last?” The answer is that a beard transplant will last a lifetime.
Who is a Candidate for a Beard Transplant?
Beard transplants are ideal for men who are looking to have a fuller, thicker looking beard. A beard transplant procedure will work for men of all ages, hair types, and ethnic backgrounds.
How is a Beard Transplant Performed?
Two surgical options are available for beard transplantation: ARTAS robotic FUE hair transplantation, and Multi-Unit Hair Grafting.
- ARTAS robotic hair transplantation is an advanced robotic assisted FUE hair transplant procedure. It’s benefits include (a) no linear scar, (b) it is less invasive, and (c) faster recovery time.
- Multi-Unit Hair Grafting (MUHG) is a PAI-developed hair transplant technique that involves a micro thin linear scar but with distinct and major advantages. Patients who need more hair because they have a very thin beard achieve better, more satisfying results with the MUHG transplant procedure. MUHG hair transplantation benefits include (a) best value, (b) easier, shorter procedure, and (c) best for very thin beards.
