Beard Transplant

Beard Transplant in Toronto

Are you dealing with thinning facial hair?

For a lot of men out there, it is not that easy to grow a thick, luscious beard! And with the new craze started by the boys at Duck Dynasty and the new hipster trend of styled beards, the industry of using hair transplant technology for beard transplants is growing at a rapid rate.

The cost of a beard transplant can range anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000, depending on how much hair needs to be transplanted as well as the procedure’s level of difficulty. It is very important for the transplanted hairs to be placed in a way that matches the normal hair colour and growth of the facial hair in the area where they are transplanted. It is also crucial, especially in a beard hair transplant, that you get great density so that when the hairs grow out, they don’t look patchy or uneven. The best part is that you can completely design the way that you want your beard to look when it grows out. Therefore, you can save on trimming the outline of your beard in the places that you do not want the hairs to grow.

The hairs that will be used come from the back of the head – the exact same hair that is used for any and all hair transplants. For the most part, this hair structure matches up fairly well with the usual facial hair that you have. Most of the transplanted hairs will fall out after the first 2 weeks or so, but brand new hairs will grow by about the third or fourth month after the beard transplant. The procedure itself is fairly painless and does not require that you be put under with any anaesthetic sedation. A local numbing agent is used, and some medication will be used such as a mixture of painkiller and sedative. The process is very similar to any other hair transplant.

The cool thing about the evolution of hair transplant procedures is that wherever hair can normally grow, hair can be transplanted. So the same process used for the scalp and the beard can also include just doing a redesign or restoration of the sideburns, moustache, goatee, or even eyebrows.

The procedure can also be used to cover up scars on the face in the areas where hair would normally grow. As long as blood flow can be found in the area of the scar or at least the immediate surrounding areas, a transplant can be done to cover or camouflage facial scars. This includes scars over the lips in the moustache region.

The hair that is transplanted will also grow out as long as you want it to. So if you have always aspired to be a member of ZZ Top or wish that you could hang out with the Robertson family of Duck Dynasty, then maybe a beard transplant is the solution for you!

Beard Transplant

Known As Alopecia Barbae

Alopecia barbae is a very specific form of hair loss. Traditionally, alopecia areata describes a condition where hair loss occurs throughout the body, and alopecia barbae describes hair loss that occurs in the beard. For obvious reasons, alopecia barbae is noticeable only with men, because lower levels of testosterone in women would typically prevent the formation of facial hair (specifically beards) altogether.

Why Do I Have Bald Patches?

Bald patches in beards are actually quite common among men. They can appear under the chin as well as on the sides of the neck, on the cheeks, and along the moustache region.

Are Beard Transplants an Option?

Beard transplants are definitely an option for men who wish to reverse the signs of thinning or balding. In fact, we have had many existing patients request facial hair transplants. Men seeking beard transplants will often even reference the facial hair of specific Hollywood A-listers such as Ryan Reynolds.

Because the transplanted hair will come from the back of the head, it also requires us to match the natural colour of the area being transplanted. These hairs will initially grow faster and will require trimming for the first year or two.

Facial Hair Transplant

Advanced Technology

NeoGraft facial hair transplant is an innovative solution to hair loss problems for men and women. It is a huge improvement over traditional hair restoration surgeries that involve the removal of hair-bearing strips of the scalp from the back and sides of the head, which are then transferred to the areas of baldness. These traditional surgeries also leave a noticeable permanent linear scar at the back of your scalp, caused by the removal of hair follicles. NeoGraft hair transplant is a better hair transplant method. This technological advance in hair transplant surgery has led to the ability of surgeons to perform facial hair transplants. For example, they can give men the full beard lines they want or offer women full, natural-looking eyebrows.

Missing Eyebrows? We Can Fix That Too

Women can start to see hair loss and missing eyebrows for many reasons. Alopecia areata, genetics, and even over-plucking, to name a few.

NeoGraft FUE hair transplant used for eyebrows is a highly successful and permanent solution for most of these cases.

It is also very important that the transplanted hairs for your eyebrows are done in a way that harmonizes well with your eyes. And for your beard, it is done in a way that follows the contours of your face and looks as natural as possible. Once we harvest the hair, we will also make sure that is implanted at the right angle to replicate the original growth.

How Does a Beard or Eye Brow Transplant Work?

A beard or eyebrow transplant works pretty much the same as a head hair transplant procedure does. First, you have a consultation with Dr. Torgerson, during which he will determine the likely cause of your hair loss and plan an effective treatment regimen. After making sure that you are a good candidate for a beard or eyebrow transplant, Dr. Torgerson will first identify a donor area that hair can be extracted from. This donor area is typically along the rear or side regions of the patient’s scalp – the same area that would be used for any hair transplant. Once we have extracted the required amount of hair, we transplant individual follicular units in the desired areas to restore bald areas and create a natural-looking beard.
