Beard / Eyebrow / Eyelash Transplant
Alternative Hair Transplants
Beard and alternative hair transplants are options today. Using hair transplants to reconstruct non-traditional facial hair loss is becoming more common. Areas such as the beard, eyebrow and eyelash can all suffer from thinning and hair loss. For some, hair loss in these areas can be traumatic to deal with. The loss of hair can alter the facial perspective and framing of the face. Having a large impact on how we look. As a result, beard and alternative hair transplants can help. Using hair from an alternative donor resource can rebuild areas of thinning. As long as the hair used is genetically healthy and strong. As hair characterics can alter around the body.
Beard and alternative hair transplants to be successful need to blend with any surrounding hair. Factors such as the curl and coarseness of the hair shaft and to a lesser extent the hair colour. Scalp hair grows in larger groups of follicular units compared to say beard or chest hair. The hair cycle phases also differ. As a result scalp hair has a longer growth phase allowing the hair to grow longer in length. As the hair may have different hair characteristics it may be required to maintain the hair. The most common aspect of maintenance is hair cutting to ensure a balanced hair length.
