What Is A Mustache And Beard Transplant?

Mustache and Beard transplant surgery is a procedure that restores hair to the mustache area. A mustache transplant surgery is similar in method to a hair transplant surgery and the transplanted hair grows and can even be shaved just as you would other facial hair. (1)

A beard transplant takes hair from another part of your body (usually the base of your scalp at the back, or under your chin) and transplants it to your face. (2)

The small follicular units enable the surgeon to transplant thousands of grafts within a single session, hence maximizing the impact of the technique. Before the follicular hair transplantation method was developed, surgeons removed large grafts in groups of 3-8 hairs. This method yielded an unnatural look as the follicular units would get damaged of broken up, affecting hair growth.

Follicular Unit Extraction is a surgical hair transplant technique that involves removing individual hair follicles from scalp and implanting them on the thinning or bald areas of the head. The whole procedure, i.e., from extraction to implantation, is performed manually by our skilled surgeon Dr. Farooque. FUE hair transplant in Dubai is ideal for:

  •         Patients whose hairline is growing backward
  •         People with bald hair
  •         Those with particle hair loss

How Does Mustache And Beard Transplant Work?

The actual procedure is similar to traditional hair transplant. Eyebrow hair grafts are taken from hairs above your ears. A surgeon transfers not just the individual hairs, but the hair follicles, too. This helps to ensure that new hairs are able to grow in your eyebrows once the initial transferred ones fall out. After the patient is given a general anesthetic, a surgeon will make small incisions at the follicle donor sites, as well as at the sites of transplantation in a patient’s brows. The entire process takes about 2 to 3 hours. (4)

The doctor begins by shaving off the back of the patient’s head. A small instrument is then used to remove the follicular units from the scalp leaving tiny marks. The surgeon then makes small holes on the bald area and grafts hair follicles into the holes. The area is then covered with a gauze or bandage to prevent infection and speed up healing.
