About Beard and Mustache Grafting

For as long as man has walked the earth, he has grown a beard. Cavemen used theirs to keep warm, prophets stroked theirs, and now with the help of beard grafting, modern men can show off their whiskers, too. 

The beard has taken on different symbolism. In some cultures, it is a sign of strength, virility, and wisdom; in others, it is a mark of respectability. But no matter the origin, having a thick beard is a source of pride and confidence for many men. For those whose facial hair has not kept up with their desires, beard and mustache grafting can help.

The procedure involves taking donor hair from the scalp or other areas and implanting it into the beard and mustache areas, resulting in a fuller, more natural-looking appearance that can be shaped and styled just like regular facial hair.

Beard and mustache grafting is typically performed as an outpatient procedure, meaning you’ll be able to go home the same day. The downtime is minimal, making this a convenient option for busy patients.

What is NeoGraft?

Dr. Wolin is an expert in using the NeoGraft system for beard and mustache grafting. NeoGraft is an advanced, automated hair transplant system that extracts individual follicular units from the donor site with mechanical precision, depth, and extraction technology. After they are extracted, the follicles are carefully placed in the facial areas where hair loss or thinning occurs.

NeoGraft vs Strip Method

The traditional “strip” method of hair transplantation involved isolating a piece of skin from the donor area, usually the back or sides of the head, and removing a strip of hair-bearing tissue. The strip was dissected into individual follicular units under a microscope and transplanted into the recipient area.

Advantages of the NeoGraft system

  • Uses a device to extract individual follicular units from the donor site, allowing for a more precise and less invasive procedure
  • Does not involve large incisions or sutures, so recovery is much faster and noticeable scarring is avoided
  • Allows for a more natural-looking result, as the follicular units are placed one by one into the recipient area, giving a natural look and feel
  • Ensures the highest quality of hair grafts, which is essential for achieving the best possible results in beard and mustache grafting

Dr. Wolin and his team of experts have extensive experience using NeoGraft technology, making them the perfect choice for any man looking for their ultimate facial hair. 

Why is My Beard and Mustache Thinning?

Some men may opt for beard and mustache grafting to improve the fullness or coverage of their facial hair. The transplanted hair will grow over time, and patients can enjoy the results within a few months. The results are long-lasting, natural-looking, and can be trimmed to match any desired facial hair style.

Some men cannot grow a thick, full beard and mustache due to:

  • Genetics
  • Age
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Medications
  • Injury

These issues can cause facial hair thinning or gaps in the beard that can look uneven and patchy. A thinning, patchy beard can make even the most confident man feel self-conscious. With beard and mustache grafting, men can reclaim their confidence and look their best.

Please contact Wolin Plastic Surgery Center in Scottsdale, AZ, if you are considering beard and mustache grafting. Dr. Wolin can help you achieve the full, thick beard and mustache you’ve dreamed of.

What are the Benefits of Beard and Mustache Grafting?

Just like with thinning hair on the scalp, a patchy, uneven beard and mustache can make men feel self-conscious. Beard and mustache grafting can restore the confidence of youth or instill confidence that was never there to begin with.

The benefits of beard and mustache grafting include:

  • Thicker, fuller facial hair
  • More natural-looking facial hair appearance
  • The ability to wear any desired facial hair style
  • Long-lasting results
  • No need for daily maintenance
  • Ability to get creative with facial hair styling

Many people choose the NeoGraft system for hair transplants because it may cause less damage to follicles than traditional FUE methods; this reduced trauma could result in a higher survival rate for newly transplanted hairs. [1] Furthermore, because you won’t be spending money on pills or topicals, beard and hair grafting can save you money in the long run!

Ideal Candidates for Beard and Mustache Grafting

Ideal candidates for the NeoGraft system to restore facial hair include men who:

  • Have thinning, patchy facial hair
  • Are in good physical and mental health
  • Have realistic expectations for the results
  • Are non-smokers or willing to quit smoking for the duration of their recovery
  • Understand the risks and potential complications associated with facial hair grafting

Beard and mustache grafting can help male candidates achieve the desired look without resorting to pills, creams, or other products. Get a full face of hair and grow the beard and mustache you want.

The system is not ideal for patients who have lost their hair because of medications or an illness. Often, these causes of hair loss are reversed once the medicine is stopped or the illness is treated. NeoGraft is ideal for men with androgenic alopecia [2], a genetically thin beard or mustache, or who have suffered hair loss due to injury.

Preparing for Beard and Mustache Grafting

Before undergoing beard and mustache grafting, you should take the following steps:

  • Quit smoking – Smoking can delay healing.
  • Avoid medications that can increase the risk of bleeding during surgery – Dr. Wolin will provide you with a list at your consultation.
  • Follow all pre- and post-operative instructions – This will help ensure a smooth recovery.
  • Be realistic about your expectations – Results may vary from patient to patient, and Dr. Wolin will discuss realistic expectations during your consultation.

The Procedure

Here’s what you can expect during a NeoGraft procedure:

  • First, Dr. Wolin will shave the area from which hair follicles will be donated; this is usually the back of the head since these follicles are the most healthy and abundant.
  • Next, your donor site will be numbed using a local anesthetic before starting the procedure. You may be given a mild sedative if you want help to relax during the surgery.
  • Dr. Wolin will use a unique NeoGraft wand to “stamp” and extract your hair follicles. The small follicular units are then extracted using suction.
  • Next, he will use a tool to insert the hair follicles into the balding parts of your face to fill out your beard or mustache.
  • A dressing will be applied to the donor and implantation sites to help manage bleeding.

Recovery After Beard and Mustache Grafting

The implants should heal within a week, and most people can return to their everyday routine in as little as two weeks. For many people, this means they can return to work just days after the surgery. Dr. Wolin will give you specific expectations and recommendations about how to take care of your grafts post-surgery.

What are the Results of NeoGraft for Facial Hair?

Beard and mustache grafting can help men achieve their desired facial hair. For those who want a fuller beard and mustache, grafting is the perfect solution. The results will look natural and give the desired effect of a thicker beard and mustache. The grafts will become permanent new hair follicles with proper care and maintenance.
