How Can I Grow a Thicker, Fuller, Less Patchy Beard?
From coast to coast, a full beard is one of the latest style trends among men from virtually all walks of life. However, for many individuals, a thick and even beard is simply not possible. Whether genetics, a previous injury, or some other factor is the cause, a large number of men experience patchiness along facial areas that should be growing hair. Fortunately, advanced hair restoration surgery can often resolve this common issue and provide a full beard with natural-looking results.
Our experienced hair restoration surgeon, Dr. Bernardino Arocha, was recently featured in a CNN story regarding facial hair transplantation. Dr. Arocha mentioned the significant uptick in patients requesting hair transplants for sideburns, beards, and mustaches in recent years. The procedure is performed utilizing ultra-refined follicular unit artistic hair restoration, the same basic hair restoration techniques that are used for traditional hair replacement surgery. Donor hair is taken from areas of healthy hair growth on the back or sides of the head and transplanted onto the targeted areas of the face that are keeping the patient from growing an even beard. After a few months have passed following the procedure, the transplanted hair should be growing in a very natural pattern and be almost indistinguishable from the original hair surrounding it. It can be shaved just like you would normally shave your face, and the results should be very long-lasting – potentially even permanent facial hair.
