Beard and Moustache

Facial hair is seen as a symbol of masculinity. There are studies that show men who have fuller, well-maintained beards appear to be more attractive and manly.

Sadly, not everyone can grow facial hair. Even those that can have some problems, usually in the form of patchy spots or irregular growth.

Here are the factors that affect facial growth:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Ethnicity
  • Low testosterone
  • Skin conditions like alopecia areata

The conditions mentioned above are, unfortunately, not curable. People don’t even have a say when it comes to genetics and age.

Thankfully, the advancement of technology has made the impossible possible. With the help of experienced cosmetic surgeons in Chennai, like Dr Rajinikanth T., getting attractive facial hair is a reality using special techniques like nano graft transplant at BM Cosmetic.

Beard And Moustache Transplant at BM Plastic Surgery & Aesthetic Centre

The beard and moustache transplant is a revolutionary treatment that has helped hundreds of thousands of people worldwide gain confidence. The transplant is a godsend, not just for people who are unable to grow facial hair but also for those who have irregular facial hair growth. Let’s face it. The only thing worse than no beard is a patchy beard.

Genetics and patchy facial hair aside, scars are also a reason for irregular facial hair. Individuals who have scars, either due to surgery or an injury, may end up with spots without hair growth. These spots often stand out and can affect the confidence of the individual.  

The beard and moustache transplant at BM Cosmetic, the best cosmetic clinic in Chennai, is similar to a hair transplant. But there are certain factors that differentiate one from the other.

The Ideal Candidate for a Beard and Moustache Transplant

A wide range of people fit into the category of ideal candidates for a beard and moustache transplant. They are listed below:

  1. Those who want a fuller beard

This is one of the most common reasons why people opt for a cosmetic surgery in Chennai. Since genetics play a role in a person’s facial hair, they may or may not have regular facial hair growth. This is often seen in beards, where some areas have healthy growth while others have comparatively little or no hair at all. In this case, relying on a transplant is the best option they have.

A fuller beard or a healthier-looking moustache often contributes to the overall look and personality of a person.

  1. Those who lose facial hair due to an illness

Genetics and age aside, certain illnesses also affect the growth of facial hair. These illnesses may also cause the existing facial hair to fall off as well.

Take hyperthyroidism, for example. Not just the hair on your head, your moustache and beard are at risk of falling if you have this condition.

Then there’s sexually transmitted diseases like syphilis. The disease, caused by the bacterium Treponema pallidum, often has patchy hair loss as a symptom.

The impact of hair loss varies depending on the seriousness of the disease. Some may be temporary, while others are permanent.

Those who suffer from facial hair loss or irregular growth due to a medical condition can visit a cosmetic surgeon in Chennai to find out their options.

  1. Those with scars

Not all conditions are natural. In some cases, a previous surgery or an accident may affect the hair follicles, restricting healthy beard or moustache growth. The condition is the same after a surgery which is done to rectify a health condition or after an accident.

Individuals who suffer from beard or moustache loss due to surgery scars or an accident can consult a cosmetic surgeon in Chennai to get their condition corrected.

  1. Female to Male Transgenders

A full beard or a moustache is seen as a symbol of masculinity. Although facial hair is a side-product of hormone therapy, some have trouble achieving proper facial hair growth. It can get even more difficult if the transitioning individual’s biological parents have little to no facial hair.

FTM transgenders belong to the group of individuals who are ideal for a beard and moustache transplant.

What Happens During a Consultation for a Beard and Moustache Transplant

Like all cosmetic procedures, a beard and moustache transplant begins with a consultation with one of the cosmetic surgeons in Chennai. It’d be wise to have realistic expectations before your visit.

During the initial consultation, you will be asked about your objectives. A complete analysis of your scalp is done after this. This helps the surgeon identify potential donor areas with a healthy number of hair follicles. The surgeon will also go through your medical records to make sure you’re healthy enough for the procedure. This is important as the surgeon will decide whether to use Follicular Unit Extraction or Follicular Unit Transplantation.

The Beard and Moustache Transplant Process

Once the consultation is done, the next step is to proceed with the transplant procedure. Your surgeon may either recommend

  • Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
  • Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

Follicular Unit Extraction

Performed by a cosmetic surgeon in Chennai, FUE involves moving individual hair follicles from a part with normal hair growth to the target area that has irregular or no hair growth. Here’s how FUE works:

Step 1: The surgeon shaves the hair off where the follicles are to be removed and the transplant area.

Step 2: The surgeon then uses a micropunch tool to extract the hair follicles from the donor area.

Step 3: The surgeon makes small incisions in the recipient area. This is done by using a needle or other sharp tools. The follicles extracted from the donor area will be inserted into these incisions.

Step 4: The surgeon cleans the transplanted area and bandages it for recovery.

Follicular Unit Transplantation

FUT is the preferred method of transplantation for the majority of men and women. It’s a minimally invasive surgery that’s great for correcting patchy facial hair. FUT is also used to improve facial hair growth. The surgery takes anywhere between 4 and 8 hours. It involves the following steps:

Step 1: The surgeon marks an area where there’s normal hair growth. This will be the donor area.

Step 2: Local anaesthesia is applied to the surgery site to numb it.

Step 3: The hair in the donor area is trimmed for convenience.

Step 4: The surgeon then removes a strip of skin from the donor area. This will be used as a graft.

Step 5: Individual hair follicles from the graft are then removed.

Step 6: The surgeon seals the incision in the donor area using sutures.

Step 7: The extracted follicles are planted based on the beard outline drawn by the surgeon.

Step 8: Bandages and antibiotics are applied to prevent infections.

After the Beard and Moustache Transplant

The first few weeks after the surgery are usually difficult. You can expect scab formation around the edges. Don’t pick on these scabs, no matter how tempting they might be. These scabs will fall off on their own after a few days.

Roughly three to four weeks after the surgery, the transplanted hair will completely fall off. Expect new hair growth after this.
