"Hipster Beards" are the New Trend in Facial Transplants By Bernard Arocha, MD on March 17, 2015

In recent years there have been quite a few advances in hair transplants. At Arocha Hair Restoration, we believe in staying current with the popular trends regarding hair restoration. The last tread to come out of New York is the “Hipster Beard”. Stubble-challenged guys can now improve their appearance by transplanting hair from the back of their heads onto their cheeks, chins and upper lips to create a full and natural beard.

Hair Loss Procedures for Restoring Your Beard

The hair for beard transplants typically is taken from the patient's head — roots and all — and then transplanted through micro-incisions on a bare patch of face. The procedure can usually take four to eight hours depending on the amount of hair being transplanted. Just like scalp hair transplant patients, facial hair transplants are performed employing local anesthesia and hence are very safe.

Once transplanted, the beard hair takes root gradually. The hair then falls out, but the roots stay and begin to grow new hair within several months. Once it's fully healed, the new beard can be shaved regularly and will grow back just like a native beard.


Choosing A Hair Loss Surgeon for Facial Hair

It is important that the patient do his homework when choosing the right doctor to perform any surgery. Because beards are highly visible, it is important to select a surgeon that understands direction and angles when placing facial hair to create natural and realistic results.

Dr. Arocha delivers the Perfect marriage of Art and science” by providing the know-how to place the extracted follicles. “As with any cosmetic procedure, there is no substitute for care and experience,” says Dr. Arocha. Upon having a consultation with Dr. Arocha, patients will have the chance to go over the design they believe will best suit their personal style and face.
