Is Beard to Scalp Hair Transplant the Future?
Dr. Parsa Mohebi, founder of Parsa Mohebi Hair Restoration has been one of the pioneering hair transplant surgeons on the forefront of using beard hair to fill in balding areas on the scalp.
A procedure once thought of, as a novelty has now become an absolute option for giving patients the best results possible when it comes to their hairlines.
“I really do believe that beard to scalp hair transplant can be a patients best option for a hair transplant if their donor area isn’t as dense as we would like it,” says Dr. Parsa Mohebi.
Beard hair can be a perfect option to be transplanted on to the scalp for a number of reasons.
The follicular units of beard hair tend to group in singularly, which provides less number of hairs per graft.
The lower number of hairs per graft can be compensated by the thicker beard hair shafts, which provide more volume per number of transplanted hairs.
In any given donor area of a man’s beard, near the neckline and lower jaw, there are three to four thousand individual follicular units that can be used to transplant to the scalp.
These thick beard hairs, which can give a fuller look after hair transplantation, are easy to harvest without any visible scarring after the procedure.
Dr. Mohebi added, “Another benefit of using beard hair to fill in the balding areas of your scalp is that the patient can remove parts of the beard, like the areas at the neckline and lower mandible, that are undesirable.
This removal will eliminate the areas of unwanted hair, while permanently dissolving the necessity of shaving the area, thus, allowing the patient to remedy their male pattern baldness and manicuring a solution to an unwanted area of hair.”
Dr. Parsa Mohebi has been perfecting this break through procedure at his practice for several years now, and has been pleased with the results, which has the whole hair restoration community asking, is beard to scalp transplantation the future of hair restoration?
