"Facial hair to thicken scalp hair (pic & video diary)"


          

Dear forum readers,
Facial hair is a useful additional hair that can be used, among other things, to build up density.
Its main uses include :
1. Adding density (increasing total available donor hair)
2. Transplanting into the scar areas.

Caution points : The beard hair should be transplanted at a low density and mixed with other hair toi avoid the "stubble" effect if they are transplanted close together.
Starting with the forum poster fueoptions, we have used this donor hair in a # of patients.
The reports have been encouraging.

Following is a picture diary of one of our recent patients where the facial hair were used to thicken the existent scalp hair.


# of grafts used and type of grafts used for the procedure-

680 beard hair and 145 chest hair.


The first picture diary focusses the cheek area. Unlike the underchin area, this area is more visible. Therefore, one of the first steps was to extract a small # of grafts from this area so that the patient can assess the healing for himself.

The picture shows the area from where the hair were extracted. A 26 gauge needle (diameter 0.45mm) is juxtaposed for comparison.
The patient presented for review 7 days later and had shaved the beard at that time.






--------------------------------------------------------


The second picture diary focuses on the angle of the jaw. It shows the fresh extraction sites, those after 48 hrs and another at 9 days post extraction.

Hi Dr. Arvind,

Looks like elegant work!


Two questions: have you seen much hypopigmentation in the form of little white dots, especially in darker-skinned patients? I am speaking specifically about long term, like 6 to 12 months as opposed to a week or so.

Second, as coarse and heavy as beard hairs are, are you using these on the leading edge of the frontal hairline? It seems that the softer, wispier ones are best for the natural transition zone of the hairline.

Dear readers,

Dr A, how did the patient's hair compare with body hair or scalp hair in general? There was a big disparity in caliber with regards to my body hair when compared to the more robust beard hair. I would think that less of a problem in most people of Indian descent as their scalp hair is thicker in caliber than mine to begin with.

Thanks.

Hoping for BHT results!

Dear Checkingin,
The patient's scalp hair is thinner than his facial hair.
His chest hair is closer in calibre to the scalp hair.

However, the hair cycles of the facial hair are longer than those of the chest hair and are closer to the scalp hair. That was one of the reason the patient chose to follow this approach.

The recipient area already has scalp hair. The limited number of chest donor hair and a larger number of facial hair were used in a manner so as to create a mix of the different types of hair in the recipient.
Regards,
Dr. A.

I think if you implanted a few beard hairs they would grow but i can see a lot having a very high yield.
