Beard FUE Grafts To Cover Strip Scar and Add Density
Here is a patient who came to me after having undergone several previous procedures and scalp reductions with other hair transplant physicians.
He wanted to add hair to his mid scalp and crown (where there was virtually no hair and a scalp reduction scar) and to attempt to conceal a very wide donor scar from his previous strip hair transplant procedures.
I extracted just over 900 grafts from the neck beard and placed them into the scalp and scar. The results are shown after 9 months and they are already impressive.
The patient should see some increased density over the next 3-6 months as the hairs thicken in diameter.
Although the beard hair is a different consistency than scalp hair it works well in cases like this where there is no more scalp hair to donate and when “filler” hair is needed for increased cosmetic density.
The patient is looking forward to another procedure to add more density in the scalp from the beard hair.
A patient with a relatively thick beard can have up to 2000 grafts to donate from the area below the jaw line.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
