Beard transplant and mustache
The beard and mustache are not only elements with which men enhance their image, they have also become one they have also become an effective alternative to cover empty spaces or facial scars, such as those generated by acne and burns. However, due to genetics or external factors, many are unable to have them; For these cases, at 2RMD, we provide the solution to project that manly look that our patients want to have.
It is a procedure developed for men over 20 years old, who want to have a more manly look or correct scars of any kind.
We usually do the procedure under sedation since anesthesia to the face can cause discomfort and pain. Sedation is the kindest way to do this procedure.
Preparation of the area where the grafts will be taken
To cover this increasingly frequent need, an outpatient procedure is performed using local anesthesia with sedation. Although each case is different and the surgical plan is decided with the patient, generally the Follicular Unit Extraction (F.U.E.) 2rmd method is used.
As a donor area, hair from the neck and / or head can be used, always depending on the expectations of each patient.
Each of the grafts that will be in the beard or mustache are taken, hair by hair.
The grafts must be seeded with the precise angle and exact direction to achieve true natural results. On average, 2000 to 3000 follicular units (FU) are required to make a full beard and about 500 FU for just the mustache.
Sowing the micrografts
The implanter is the ideal instrument for sowing these grafts as it allows great versatility to achieve the angles and direction that these anatomical areas require.
Then it is customary to do weekly controls during the first stage and according to the evolution of the patient.
Aftercare and results
There may be swelling of the face on the day of surgery due to the volume of local anesthesia applied. This inflammation usually lasts a day for a maximum.
The scabs on the face disappear between the 4th and 6th day after the procedure. The transplanted hair usually grows in the first two or three weeks and then falls out. The change will begin to notice from the 4th month and the final result will be seen after 10 months.
Cuando el pelo es tomado del cuero cabelludo, este crecerá tanto como crece en la cabeza ( un cm por mes). También es importante aclarar que no es posible predecir cuál de los injertos seleccionados tienen programación genética para volverse canosos hacia el futuro. Por esto, con los años pueden aparecer algunas canas en las zonas tratadas.
