Beard Transplant Manchester
Beard transplant for men is commonly seen as a procedure that a growing number of young men choose to undergo in order to keep up with the unshaved or bearded look that is currently in fashion. However, doctors reveal that even older men go through the procedure, since it can boost their confidence and make them appear more distinguished and sophisticated.
Here at the Manchester Hair Transplant Clinic, our team of hair loss consultants and surgeons have years of experience on beard, moustache and sideburn transplants. If you are searching for beard transplant near me and similar, you have reached the right place if you are based in and around the city of Manchester in Greater Manchester and Lancashire, North West of the UK.
Did You Know?
In 2012 in Britain there was a 12% increase in demand for facial hair transplants from the year before. This translates to 4,500 British men actually going through the procedure. The 10% yearly decline in sales of razors and blades is another sign that this procedure will be growing in popularity alongside the bearded- look trend. Beard transplants are safe and pain free and take between two to five hours and rarely requires a second visit to the specialist. During the procedure hairs are transplanted to the face from the back of the head area of the patient (also known as the “donor area”).
Best Beard Transplant Method
More specifically, when using the highly recommended FUE technique, the hair follicles are extracted with a tiny disposable tool from the back of the head. After that and before being planted on the beard area, they are kept at a specific temperature in a special solution that helps with their later development.
Unlike other hair transplant methods, the FUE procedure protects the patient’s follicles from necrotic cuttings and being destroyed from the environment. Finally, with the use of the FUE Implanter (which has a r diameter less than 1mm) the hair follicles are implanted in the desired face region.
We recommend the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique because unlike other facial hair transplant methods and non surgical hair replacement it does not involve scalpels, reception incisions, holes in the recipient area or stitches. Furthermore, with the FUE technique more than half of the implanted hair follicles survive.
Why have your Beard Transplant With Us
Our surgeons have been highly trained in using the FUE beard transplant procedure in order to ensure optimal growth post procedure. The post procedure results are not immediate as some of the transplanted beard hair can fall out after two weeks. It also will gradually grow back in the coming months.
Unlike non- surgical hair procedures, the transplanted beard has the same properties as a real beard. It can be trimmed, shaved off and experimented with without being destroyed after the first few months. Getting beard hair from a donor is not possible. Also, it is better to visit the doctor with a picture of the desired beard or have a thorough discussion about what the desired result is.
To conclude, this easy, quick and scientifically approved procedure can offer men the beard they desire. Beard hair transplant is a procedure that addresses not only the fashion, but also any man who would like the boost of confidence a full beard styled according to his taste gives. In any case it is preferable to use the established FUE professionals we recommend for better and safer results.
Frequently Asked Questions
Will I Have Any Scars on My Face?
When any part of the skin is broken, it does leave a faint scar that heals over time. It's the same with beard transplants, however the instruments that our surgeons use are less than 1mm in diameter so the initial scarring won't be visible in the beard, moustache and sideburn areas by the naked eye.
How Painful is a Beard Transplant?
A beard transplant is a relatively pain free procedure. The main reason is that it is performed under local anaesthetic and so a patient may feel a slight discomfort in the area. Post surgery, you may experience slight inflammation and redness in the area.
How Long After My Beard Transplant Can I Shave?
Our general advice is to not shave the area for the first 2 weeks after the procedure. This is because the area may be swollen and tender for the first few days post procedure. We also advise not to disturb the transplanted hairs for the first couple of weeks at least so we would advise you to refrain from touching or grooming the area.
How Much Does a Beard Transplant Cost?
The cost of beard and facial hair transplants will depend by the number of grafts that are needed. The more grafts, the more time and work that is required, so the price will be reflected in this. In general they tend to cost around the £3,000 to £5,000 mark. We do have finance options available to help out by spreading the cost of a procedure.
Our team have been involved in the hair transplant industry since 2013 and through this time we have refined our process to treat each client of ours according to their individual hair loss treatment needs. We aim to get to know, understand and set expectations for what can and can’t be done based on the amount of follicles available from the donor area.
