The science of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) has advanced greatly in the last decade. New and more efficient methods of FUE hair transplantation have increased the amount of donor hair available to balding patients.
One of the most cutting edge hair transplant methods being used to great success by Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration is the technique of extracting hair from the beard to the scalp.
Most beard to scalp transplants are performed to correct male pattern baldness.
Beard hair has a life cycle, shaft thickness and length of growth more similar to the hair on the scalp when compared to hair from other parts of the body.
Parsa Mohebi’s improved techniques for extracting follicular units through the use of new FUE devices, as well as an enhanced understanding of the anatomy of hair follicular units, allows donor hair to be extracted from different parts of the body.
A beard to scalp hair transplant is an exciting option for patients in advanced stages of hair loss who also suffer from a limited supply of, or poor quality, donor hair.
This situation is normally found in patients with low density donor hair which doesn’t provide enough hair to cover the entire head. Beard hair has been found to be much thicker than scalp hair so it provides more volume after a hair transplant is performed.
Studies have shown that facial hair remains in the growth phase longer, and goes to its resting phase, for a shorter time compared to hair from other parts of the body like chest hair or arm hair.
What this means is the transplanted facial hairs will have a growing hair follicle for a longer period of the time. In turn, this creates a longer hair shaft to create more volume.
According to Dr. Parsa Mohebi “We are expecting more patients to inquire about beard to scalp hair transplant (BSHT) in the following years.
This method of hair transplant can resolve the problem of many patients who previously couldn’t get a hair transplant.”
While the procedure may need to be performed more than once to provide full coverage of the balding area, a beard to scalp transplant is an effective method to provide patients with a plentiful hair source.
As former chairman of the FUE Research Committee and creator of several methods and techniques in modern hair restoration, Dr. Mohebi, along with his incredible staff, provides the most advanced techniques in the industry.
Dr. Mohebi prides himself in advancing new research and developing the latest technology to improve the quality of hair restoration. The overall goal at his office is to restore patient’s self-esteem through the use of quality hair restoration techniques.
