Facial Hair Restoration
Beards and Moustaches
Beard and moustache transplantation is a refined form of hair transplantation wherein single hair follicles are dissected from the donor strip and are placed in small (.7 mm) incisions to create fuller growth within a preexisting facial hair pattern. It is also common to create entirely new facial hair patterns in those cases where very little facial hair is present due to hereditary or others factors.
Eyebrow transplantation may be indicated as a result of a variety of conditions including, but not limited to trauma, burns, infection, chronic plucking, alopecia areata, as well as a congenital absence of eyebrow hair or a genetic predisposition for the eyebrow hairs to thin prematurely with age.
Recreation of a naturally appearing eyebrow requires the reconstruction of the ever changing direction of hair growth throughout the length of the eyebrow from it’s medial to lateral aspect. Hair along the top of the brow grows laterally and inferiorly (points out and down). Hair along the bottom of the brow grows laterally and superiorly (points out and up). The body of the eyebrow, therefore, is comprised of these intermingling crisscrossed hairs along the middle of the eyebrow line.
In creating recipient sites, very fine incisions are made at a very low angle to the skin, to ensure that the hairs lie as flat as possible. Single hair micrografts are then placed at the correct angle and direction to recreate the subtle variances that combine to produce the final appearance of a natural, full eyebrow shape.
