For most men, hair is a sign of masculinity and for most men, losing hair is equivalent to losing their manhood. While hair does start sprouting for most men during their teenage years, there are some who are unable to enjoy a moustache or beard even after their teenager days are over and for most of them a facial hair transplant, would be a great option.

With the assistance of the best beard transplant surgeons, who are now present in India, in cities such as Ludhiana and Delhi, having a full beard or moustache has now become not only a reality, but also an easy way out. Today, if you want a new beard or are only looking at rejuvenating a beard that you already had, it is possible and the procedure is quite an uncomplicated one.

In the simplest of terms, when a transplant is done in the area where a beard would be, it can be referred to as a beard transplant. However, a more detailed definition would be a procedure by which hair can be restored to the chin and cheek areas, where there might have been loss of hair, due to medical or physical trauma. The same procedure can also be used to make an existing beard look thicker and fuller. It is imperative though, that the transplant be done by an experienced professional, for the best results

Before you decide to undergo a beard transplant, you need to understand its anatomy. The formation of the beard starts during the puberty and it continues to grow and develop till the mid-thirties. For the purpose of a beard transplant, the face will normally be divided into two sections – the lateral and the frontal. The lateral part will include the sideburns, the cheeks and the jawline. In the frontal part, it will be the moustache and the goatee, along with the chin and lowest part of the jawline.The doctor performing the transplant procedure will need to keep in mind that the hair in the beard and moustache are often of a different density. The number of grafts required will also vary from person to person, but on a general basis 2000 to 2500 grafts are required

In most cases, a hair transplant is required by people who have lost hair due to genetic, medical, lifestyle or trauma related reasons. The same is the case with beard transplants as well – they are required by people who might have lost hair in the beard area due to a genetic condition, illness, certain medications, accidents or any other such similar reasons. By undergoing a beard transplant, they can enjoy a full beard once again or in some cases, for the very first time.

While there might be several people who would want to get a beard transplant done, not all of them will prove to be worthy candidates for the same. There are some requirements, rather criteria, which need to be met for a person to be considered eligible for a beard transplant. For starters, the person has to have realistic expectations and should not expect a full beard, the very same day as the procedure. It is important to remember that any hair transplant will take time to settle in. the person needs to be in sound medical and mental health and the decision to undergo a transplant needs to be a genuine one and not one that has been taken under peer or any other pressures.

The factors that a doctor will keep in mind, before considering a person worthy enough for a beard transplant would include whether the beard has obvious spots or patches, which need to be covered for the face to look good. There also has to be an above average donor area, which could include the side and the back of the head. A thorough physical exam will allow an experienced doctor to judge whether you are an ideal candidate for the procedure or not.

You need to accept that this is a surgical procedure, which means that there could be some risks and complications involved and it would be best that you talk to your doctor about the same beforehand. Being a surgical procedure, it will also not come cheap and in most cases, these procedures are considered cosmetic, which means that insurance will not cover it.

It is possible to design a beard, but this will be possible only after a close examination of your beard region and your donor area. The texture of the donor hair will play an important role in creating a natural looking beard. And no matter how well the transplant has been done, the hair will fall out within a few days. However, this will lead the way to a fuller, healthier and more permanent beard.

The procedure will not take more than a few hours, but you will have to take a few days off from work, because you will have to take immense care of your newly transplanted beard. This will also mean that you will not be able to shave for close to 10 days, no matter what your beard looks like.
