The Result of Beard Hair Transplant
This procedure is usually done successfully, but in some cases there are a few things to consider when going under this procedure, the result may not be as the patient expected, as this is not only harvesting and planting.
Root structure: the hair planted into the beard has a different quality from the hair that already exists in the patient’s beard. In general, hair produced in the scalp differs from other bodily hair. Bodily hair root contains only one hair. On the other hand, a healthy and grow-able hair root taken from the scalp contains two or more hairs. So, when a root taken from the scalp is planted in the face of the patient, it has hard for it to grow in the natural direction of hair growth. The person performing the procedure should be able to determine the most suitable roots to be plucked from the donor area in the scalp.
Hair thickness: Hair taken from the scalp has different thickness from hair taken from the beard; hair taken from the scalp is thinner compared to hair taken from the beard. Beards are usually thicker which makes the transplanted hair more vulnerable and more apt to breakage and split.
Beard hair density will not be the same as the scalp; which makes difficult to control hair growth direction after the transplant.
Growth levels for both kind of hair will not be compatible. The hair taken from the scalp may grow faster than the one from the beard which will have an effect on the patient’s appearance and consequently leaving him uncomfortable with the outcome.
Facial hair transplant may leave scars around the planted hair and may remain visible when the beard is shaved. Those scars are usually annoying and may bleed when the beard is shaved because t is not leveled with other parts of the skin.
These factors and side effects may appear when the hair transplant procedure is performed by an unqualified person like a nurse or any other inexperienced person.
