Facial Hair Transplant
Some of us think shaving is a daily inconvenience; others would love to be so inconvenienced. Facial hair can be lost to disease, surgical scarring, or the aging process. Some men just aren’t able to grow the thick beard, mustache, or sideburns they’ve always wanted.
If you’d like to restore or augment your facial hair, you’ll be pleased to know that the same hair transplantation techniques that can restore your hairline can be adapted to put hair on your face.
Dr. Siporin removes a small strip of hair is from an inconspicuous donor area on the scalp. He then dissects the hair under magnification into grafts containing just one or two hairs. The hairs are then transplanted into minute receptor sites made by a surgical needle. By transplanting the hairs one at a time, Dr. Siporin can position them with excellent precision, aligning them so that they grow in the same direction and at the same angle as the surrounding hairs. The end result is completely natural looking.
Over the next few months, the new hairs will fall out (this is completely normal) and then regrow. As the transplanted hairs grow into their new position, they won’t fall out ever again.
