Beard to Head Hair Transplant
If you are experiencing hair loss and are looking for a permanent solution, then you might want to consider beard to head hair transplant. This technique is a safe and effective way to restore your hair density and cover balding spots.
At Sule Clinic, we understand that hair loss can be a major cause of concern for many individuals. We believe that everyone deserves to feel confident and comfortable in their own skin, which is why we offer a range of hair transplant options including beard to head hair transplant.
What is Beard to Head Hair Transplant?
Beard to head hair transplant involves taking strong and thick beard grafts and implanting them in areas where hair density is lower. This technique is particularly useful for individuals who have experienced severe hair loss, and is often used to increase the overall hair density of the scalp.
During the hair transplant treatment, our experienced surgeons use manual micro-punch or micro-motor punch to extract the beard grafts from the donor area. The grafts are then carefully transplanted to the areas where hair density is lower, resulting in a fuller and healthier head of hair.
Is it Possible to Perform a Hair Transplant Only with Beard Hair?
While beard hair continues to grow when implanted in the scalp, it is slightly different in structure to hair follicles. Therefore, using beard hair as the sole source for hair transplant is not recommended as it can result in an unnatural appearance. At Sule Clinic, we mostly use beard hair for the vertex area and crowns.
However, beard grafts can be implanted in areas where a patient still has some hair, and it should only be used to increase the hair density of that area. In other words, beard hair follicles shouldn’t be used to cover a balding area completely.
How is Beard to Scalp Hair Transplant Performed?
At Sule Clinic, we perform beard to scalp hair transplant with the Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) technique. This procedure is minimally invasive and does not leave any scars. The beard hairs are chosen from the most appropriate donor area on the patient, and are then separated from the skin and implanted onto the patient’s head.
The donor area for beard to head hair transplant can be found in several different locations including the lower jaw area, above cheekbones, neck, legs, chest hair, nape, and under the chin. Hair grafts obtained from the beard generally contain one hair follicle, but sometimes, they could include two hair follicles as well.
Who is Eligible for Beard to Head Hair Transplant?
Hair transplantation is an ideal treatment for those who experience hereditary-pattern baldness or those who lose their hair due to diseases and environmental factors such as burns. Anyone in good general health and is over 22 years old is a suitable candidate for beard to head transplantation.
During the hair implantation process, donor area and the number of grafts required are critical factors for successful hair transplant results. In cases where the donor area in the scalp is inadequate, additional donors such as hair transplant from the beard may be required.
What are the Advantages of Hair Transplant from the Beard?
There are several advantages of beard to head hair transplant, including:
- It is suitable for restoring hair density
- No special care is required in the beard area
- The strong beard hair can negatively impact the natural looks of the front hairline if implanted in that region but we do not use it on hairline or front.
- Strong beard hairs are more resistant to hair loss
- Beard follicles are stronger than ones taken from some points of the hair scalp
- Beard follicles stay longer in growth phases and pass less into the resting phase, resulting in a more long-lasting result
At Sule Clinic, we believe that everyone deserves to have a full and healthy head of hair. If you are experiencing hair loss, we recommend considering beard to head hair transplant as a permanent solution. Our experienced surgeons use the latest techniques
