The beard and mustache are commonly known as “facial hair”, and are part of the secondary sexual characteristics, that is, it is one of the physical characteristics that differentiate us between men and women.
Facial hair is more common in the area of the mustache, temples, chin and sometimes on the cheeks.
For men, since ancient times, the beard and mustache are the greatest sign of masculinity, virility, class, and personality. However, its presence is determined, most of the time, by genetic factors. For this reason, its growth in man can be: very abundant, partial, incipient, zero or imberbes. The following image shows the types of beards and mustaches.
For those imberbes men with either a beard or mustache, who have little hair due to genetic, surgical and / or scar causes, the best remedy today is transplantation.
BEARD AND BIGOTE TRANSPLANTATION
It is considered a refinement of hair transplantation, being in Gardel part of our specialties and skills, designed to:
– Permanently restore hair in those people where there is none.
– Hide acne scars.
– Repair of surgical scars, burns or other types of accidents.
The most common are in the regions of the mustache and chin, in addition to the cheeks, sideburns or to give density to the existing hair.
The donor hair, that is, the hair that is extracted to be transplanted, is obtained from the posterior region of the head since in this area the hair resembles the structure of the facial hair, so much, that these can be shaved as Facial hair
The only difference between the hair of the back of the head and that of the facial hair is that they have to be carefully selected since the hair of the beard and the mustache have their peculiarity:
– Your follicle or root produces only one hair.
– Its conformation is of diameter with greater thickness or thickness.
In Gardel we have microscopic technology that allows us to study, extract and process each follicular unit appropriately and individually, thereby ensuring that there are no visible scars after implantation.
Three steps of implantation and orientation are performed, carefully selecting and dissecting each graft with the use of microscopes, we ensure that an aesthetic density and natural appearance is achieved.
- In Gardel Hair, before starting the implantation of the donor’s hair, we carry out a working design that goes according to the shape of the patient’s face and, above all, the artistic style that will be printed to make him look aesthetically natural and undetectable.
- On the selected work plan, tiny incisions with direction angle and inclination identical to facial hair are made one by one.
- On each micro-incision and with the exact orientation angle each graft is implanted and distributed individually with both one and two hairs.
Because it is an outpatient procedure, it is performed under local anesthesia with an intravenous sedative, which allows us a painless effect both in surgery and after the transplant.
The surgical time is 5 to 10 hours and this will depend on three aspects:
– Areas to transplant, if it is total or partial (Beard, mustache, chin, cheeks and sideburns.
– Extraction technique (FUSS or FUE). Regularly with the FUE technique, it takes us twice as much time for the detail that each individual graft has to extract.
– Number of grafts contracted.
Immediately after the procedure and on the grafted areas it will be slightly inflamed for a period of no more than 3 to 5 days. This allows the patient to be able to return or travel home the same day and resume activities (not strenuous). In addition to this, there will be a small scab around each grafted hair, which will fall by itself within two weeks. There is no special care or medication, just gentle washing and keeping the transplanted areas “dry”.
This will depend on the desired extraction technique, the following are the techniques:
If done with the FUSS technique (band technique), removable and/or soluble suture is placed, where the removable suture is removed 10 days after the procedure and the soluble one disappears on its own after 15 days. The care that should be taken, with both sutures, is only hygiene and use a topical antibiotic on the scar for a period of 10 days.
If it is done with the FUE technique (one by one technique), no suture is used since each graft is removed individually leaving only a small circular scab, which with hygiene and with a topical antibiotic application for 10 days alone will fall
