The procedure of beard and mustache hair transplant

01

FOLLICULAR UNITS FOR BOTH BEARD AND MUSTACHE HAIR TRANSPLANT CAN BE TAKEN BY BOTH THE FUT AND FUE TECHNIQUES

FUT :  In the FUT method a long narrow strip of skin is removed from the back side of the scalp which is then divided into hair grafts .Donor area is then sutured by putting the skin edges together . This suture line  immediately gets hidden by hair on back however it gives linear scar on back of head 

FUE : With FUE method individual follicular units containing 1 to 4 hairs are removed under local anesthesia using micro punches of between 0.7 to 1 mm in diameter .The extracted grafts are stored in a chilled ringer lactate saline for survival . The grafts are then placed in a predetermined density and pattern into the recipient site. As individual follicles are removed only small punctate scars remain which are virtually not visible .

Grafts can be implanted by one of the following method 

A) Pre-made slits or preformed slits : The main advantage of preformed slit is that exposure of grafts time out of the body is reduced . It can be done in 2 ways – coronal or Sagittal angle slit
