Your Frequent Questions Answered About Beard Transplants
It’s no secret that beards have become wildly popular as a fashion statement. The hipster movement, especially in places like the Bay Area, Brooklyn, Seattle, Los Feliz, and Austin, is radically redefining 21st century masculinity. Unfortunately, not every guy can grow a beard on his own – or at least a beard that looks full and aesthetically appealing. In such cases, a beard transplant can be used to give you the attractive, full beard of your dreams. However, before you sign up for this procedure, you need to know a few things about how it works.
1. Transplanted beards grow like natural beards.
A transplanted beard won’t grow like the hair on your head. It will maintain the same texture and characteristics as your naturally-occurring facial hair.
2. A beard transplant is very much like a standard hair transplant.
From a medical and technological perspective, the FUE hair restoration method used to complete beard transplants is quite similar to the method used to restore hair to the head. The primary difference between these two procedures is the size of the incision, which is smaller in the case of a beard transplant.
3. Prepare yourself! The procedure will be lengthy.
Depending on the specifics of your hair transplant, transplanting facial hair can take up to five hours to complete. And hipsters take note: artisanal chocolate, rooftop-grown kale and Pabst Blue Ribbon beer are not typically served at the end of the procedure!
