Beard and moustache
For men, beards and mustaches may be grown not only as an accessory but may also reflect a person’s social standing or as a means of representing their beliefs. There are many phases in a man’s life when he may decide to leave his beard to grow out. Since men have found they can express themselves through their facial hair, we have seen the emergence of many different cuts and styles over the years.
However, it may sometimes be possible for a man to have a sparse or patchy beard growth which can mean that they are restricted in their facial hair styling. This sparseness may be caused by burns, injury, scarring, or genetics. This is where the beard or mustache transplant comes into play. With a facial hair transplant, you can now grow the kind of beard or mustache style that you have always wished for.
Causes for the Hair Loss in Men
Some major causes of hair loss in men are but not limited to:
- Scars due to trauma, burns or surgery
- Traction alopecia
- Congenital baldness/deficiency of hair
- Long-standing alopecia areata
- Post–folliculitis scaring
Good Candidates for Beard Transplant
Good candidates for beard transplant in Turkey are men in general in good health with:
- Spotty and patchy areas in the bearded region
- Sufficient hair growth on the back or sides of the head
- Realistic expectations
Reasons for the Lack of Beard
If you have a patchy beard, you’re not alone. The problem is that too many men with patchy beards throw up their hands and decide that growing a beard isn’t worth the trouble. And that’s too bad.
Here we will look into the major reasons for which you are deprived of a good-looking beard.
If your parents are tall, the chances are good that you’re tall, too. The same principles apply to beard growth: if your father (and his father) grew nice thick beards, the better your chances of growing one, as well. Genetics, simply put, determines a lot about us, from hair color to even mental functioning.
Hormones are often a prime suspect when it comes to the “why” of patchy beards. Among scientific reasons for patchy growth is the fact that, for some men, the cheek area has weaker blood flow than other areas of the face. That’s important because it means that fewer nutrients and beard-growing hormones make it to your cheeks.
- Alopecia Areata
Most men don’t suffer from alopecia areata. Those that do, however, experience spot baldness that leaves small bald spots in hair-covered areas of your body, including your beard. It’s a fully treatable condition, however, and may even go away on its own.
- Lifestyle factors
We’re all told to get enough sleep, eat the right foods, get plenty of exercises, and not stress out about things so much. All are good for your overall health, including your beard health.
Thick, bold mustaches have proven to be an iconic and powerful symbol of maturity, masculinity, and wisdom among men. But some men are genetically predisposed to thin or absent facial hair.
Men who have suffered from injury or trauma to the face, which resulted in scarring may also encounter less hair growth.
Good Candidates for Moustache Transplant
Good candidates for Moustache Transplant are men who have no facial hair or men who have suffered facial trauma that prevented facial hair growth. Whether your absence of facial hair is due to genetics, acne scarring, or injury, a facial hair transplant may be a viable solution.
Treatment Procedure for Beard and Moustache Transplantation
The FUE technique is used in hair transplantation over the scalp. The grafts are extracted from the donor site – the back of the scalp. After this, these extracted grafts are transplanted on the patchy bald portions of the beard or mustache. Due to the abundant amount of hair from the donor site, almost all the patches can be covered and treated in a single sitting. So, beard or mustache transplantation usually gives very satisfying results. The transplanted hair grows naturally like other facial hair and can be trimmed or shaved.
The basic principles of hair transplantation are the same, but it needs to be planned differently. A detailed examination of the face is required to determine the number of grafts required for the entire area that needs reconstruction.
Recovery of Beard and Mustache Transplant
After one week, the transplanted area will look very natural. Recovery of the donor area is also fast; in 15 days you will get the appearance you had before the operation. Recovery instructions are the same as the FUE hair transplant procedure.
After six months patients see most of the final results, and in 12-18 months it is possible to see intensive and natural-looking facial hair.
Benefits of hair transplant for men
Everyone loses their hair on a daily basis at a rate of approximately 50 to 150 individual hairs per day. Usually, the hair will grow back. If the hair follicle is thinned, however, this re-growth does not occur. All men experience some degree of gradual hair loss in their lifetime as a result of natural aging and changes in the male hormone androgen. Women may also experience hair loss.
There is no proof that male or female pattern baldness is related to tight scalp muscles, mental stress, washing frequency, type of shampoo, or skin conditions. However, certain medical conditions can cause hair loss
With the use of local anesthesia and intravenous sedation, discomfort during the procedure is eliminated.
You will be able to participate in any of the activities you enjoy within five to seven days after treatment. Your transplanted hair is permanent and may be washed, cut and dyed.
When you have hair grafted from the back and sides of your scalp to your balding areas, called an autograft, the hair will grow for the rest of your life.
