Facial Hair Restoration
Do you want to grow a thick, healthy beard? Do you have less facial hair than you would like?
The results from Neograft can create the look you’ve envisioned for yourself. Hair is taken from the grafting site and transplanted into the face to create the thicker and fuller appearance of facial hair. Having a fuller mustache, beard, or sideburns can give you a more rugged, masculine look.
NeoGraft for Facial Hair Restoration
The determining factor for how much facial hair you end up with is genetics. Many men end up with a patchy or uneven amount of facial hair and, until now, their only option has been to shave. At West End Plastic Surgery, we offer the most advanced hair transplant technique available, NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE).
NeoGraft FUE is a huge improvement from the strip method—also known as Follicular Unit Transplant—that would leave a linear scar on the scalp in the process. Neograft FUE technology uses an automated system to gently remove individual hair follicles from the graft site and transfer them to the face. Groupings of 1-4 harvested hairs are generally taken from the back and at the base of the head, where they are thick and health. The extracted follicles are then placed in the facial area where they can be groomed, shaped, and grown to any length just as native hair follicles do. Overtime it should prove difficult to tell the transplanted follicles apart from the original hair.
In addition to the amazing results, this is an outpatient procedure done under local anesthesia so there is very little downtime, and you quickly return to your normal activities.

Facial Hair Transplant Recovery
The revolutionized hair transplantation technology, NeoGraft FUE has a quicker recovery than previous techniques. Immediately following the procedure, the transplantation area is covered with a bandage to be kept clean for 24 hours. In just a few short days, the pinpoint extractions shrink and become imperceptible with no presence of a vertical scar. It takes about a week for the extraction sites to completely heal and for you to wash your hair and face as usual.
A few weeks after the procedure, the newly transplanted hair follicles will shed. This is a normal response to their relocation, and they will then begin to produce natural hairs. Within 6-9 months, the full result will be visible and will prove to have been well worth the wait leaving you with thicker and fuller facial hair.
