Beards have been in and out of fashion for a long time. However, recently beards have seen a rise due to the re-ignited hipster beard trend. Nowadays, men are becoming inclined towards keeping their beards big, bushy, and unkempt. Growing fuller beards has always been a symbol of rugged masculinity, and studies claim women find bearded men more attractive. But, nowadays, it is also done in order to raise awareness about several male health issues, like prostate cancer. Although growing a beard is easy, everyone cannot do it due to a number of reasons. One of the most significant reasons is naturally thin facial hair. An FUE hair transplant in Dubai is a blessing for such men who want to grow a fuller beard.
A lot of men do not like to shave and love growing a burly beard. Therefore, when it comes to growing a beard, the volume and beard line matters a lot. If someone doesn’t have a naturally thick beard and wants to enhance their beard’s appearance, a beard transplant can help. It can help grow hair in the beard area, but how many hair grafts are required for a full bread?
Let’s discuss this question in detail. This article explains how many hair grafts a person needs to cover the entire beard area.
Causes of Thin Facial Hair
Growing a naturally thick beard can be a problem for men with one or more of the following conditions:
- Unhealthy Diet Lacking Essential Nutrients
- Poor Hygiene
- Medical Treatments
- Medications Side-Effects
- Laser Hair Removal Treatments in the Past
- Burns on the Face or Neck
- Injuries or Trauma
Men who are unable to grow a healthy beard can benefit from an FUE hair transplant in Dubai.
About a Beard Hair Transplant
A beard transplant is similar to a hair transplant. In a beard transplant, healthy hair follicles are taken from a body part, usually the scalp’s backside. These follicles are then transplanted into the recipient area in the beard region.
Like a scalp hair transplant, a beard transplant also uses two techniques:
- FUE Hair Transplant
- FUT Hair Transplant
Of the two methods, an FUE hair transplant in Dubai is preferred by the patients and surgeons. The reason is that it is less invasive and does not leave a long and linear scar.
Where does the donor hair come from?
Healthy donor hair follicles are crucial for a beard hair transplant. Generally, the donor hair in facial hair transplants is taken from other body parts. The healthy follicles are then grafted onto the recipient area one by one.
In a beard hair transplant, the hair follicles are taken from the scalp’s backside. It is because the texture of these hairs is relatively similar to the facial hair. Although it is possible to use hair follicles from other body parts, they may not resemble facial hair. Therefore, the outcome of a beard transplant may not be as per the patient’s expectations.
Number of Hair Grafts for a Full Beard
The density of the beard hair varies from person to person. Therefore, different people usually require a different number of hair grafts.
Generally, 350 to 500 hair grafts are required for the mustache area. On the other hand, a full goatee requires 600 to 900 hair grafts, while each sideburn needs 200 to 300 grafts. Moreover, 300 to 900 hair grafts are required for each cheek beard. However, a full beard hair transplant may require up to 3000 hair grafts.
If someone wants to grow a relatively denser beard, they may need a second session of FUE hair transplant in Dubai. However, the second session is somewhat shorter than the first one. Generally, 4000-7000 hair follicles can be transplanted individually in a beard hair transplant.
How long does the procedure take?
A single session of a beard FUE hair transplant in Dubai does not take too long to complete. Moreover, the actual transplant is relatively quicker than the entire procedure. It takes more time to prepare the grafts for transplant than the act of transplantation.
Generally, it takes about 2-5 hours for an entire hair transplant. During this time, the surgeon extracts, prepares, and transplants the follicles into the recipient area.
Grow a Full Beard in One Session
People often ask, “is it possible to grow a full beard in one beard hair transplant session?” The short answer to this question is yes. However, it depends on the treatment goals and the availability of the donor’s hair.
For instance, some people may grow a full beard after one treatment session because they have more healthy follicles available. On the other hand, others may have to undergo two or more treatment sessions for growing a full beard.
Generally, the surgeon will provide an estimate about the number of required sessions during the initial consultation.
While facial hair looks promising on men, not every man is lucky enough to be blessed with sufficient facial hair. However, since most men want to grow a fuller beard, they may need a beard transplant.
A beard hair transplant is a viable but expensive option for growing a fuller beard. Moreover, it is a more invasive treatment than home remedies, medications, and non-surgical therapies. The results are generally long-lasting and permanent. However, some patients may require a follow-up treatment due to a number of reasons.
