Facial Hair Transplant
If you’ve lost facial hair due to disease, surgical scarring, aging, or just haven’t been able to grow the beard, mustache, or sideburns you’ve always wanted, Dr. Charles can help.
The same hair transplantation techniques that can restore the hair on your scalp can be used to restore your facial hair. A thin strip of hair is removed from an inconspicuous donor area on your scalp. Dr. Charles then uses a microscope to dissect the strip of hair into grafts containing just one two hairs. The hairs are then transplanted into minute incisions wherever more facial hair is desired. By transplanting the hairs one at a time, Dr. Charles can place them with excellent precision, positioning them the way they would naturally grow.

The only drawback to facial hair transplantation is that because the transplanted hairs come from your head, they will continue to grow longer and more quickly than the surrounding facial hairs. You may need to trim your facial hair to keep it at the desired length. Also, because facial hair is often coarser than the hair on your head, the texture will not match precisely. However, because the length of facial hair is relatively short, differences in texture are usually not noticeable. The results generally appear completely natural.
