What is Follicular Unit Facial Hair Transplantation?
Follicular Unit Facial Hair Transplantation is an exciting process that involves harvesting scalp hair and implanting it areas of the face that are thinner and sparse. Follicles are harvested from the back of the scalp and re-implanted in areas of the face where hair may require greater density. Dr. Chernoff specializes in Follicular Unit Hair Transplant with thousands of successful procedures performed.
How well does the new hair grow in?
The newly implanted hair will grow similar to that of normal facial hair. As the hair grows in, it can be groomed and maintained like the native facial hair. Dr. Chernoff uses Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) to enhance the newly ingrained facial hair after surgery. Once this hair has been transplanted, it becomes difficult to tell apart from the original. This transplant has permanent results, leaving you with fuller, denser facial hair.
What is the Follicular Unit Facial Hair Transplant procedure like?
The procedure is performed under local anesthesia with an oral sedative. Depending on the patient’s skin, the procedure can take between 2 to 5 hours. Patients will need a day following the surgery for recovery, but the patients may be able to resume most activities the second day. Transplanted hairs are expected to fall out around 4 weeks following the day of the surgery, but will regrow around 3-4 months.
