Facial Hair Restoration Dallas
Some men lack facial hair and desire to have a stronger lower facial appearance for various reasons. Certain ethnicities are less hairy in the lower face and simply cannot grow a substantive moustache and/or beard. Accordingly, these ethnicities may be more likely to request facial hair transplantation to achieve a more masculine appearance to their face. For example, Asians may have limited moustache and goatee hair and may have hair in this region so sparse as to be patchy in nature. At times, the goal is simply to reinforce and to strengthen the existing hair pattern, at other times it may be to create improved symmetry or to extend the area thereby improving the shape, or the goal may be more elaborate and extensive depending on individual taste and donor-hair capacity.
At times, men or women may want to hide a weak chin, a scar, a previous cleft lip, or early or late jowling, i.e., aging. For men, one of the common examples of facial scar that requires hair transplant would be a cleft-lip deformity. The scar left from surgery may hinder the growth of hair above the upper lip so that a moustache appears broken with the scar appearing through it. For women, scars left from a facelift may require hair transplant to restore sideburns or gaps in hair growth caused by scars left behind the ears. Depending on the size of the scar that needs to be covered, hair can be harvested using either the FU-strip or FUE method. Typically, scars have less blood supply and lower growth potential. It is important to mention that Dr. Lam uses a very extensive array of bioenhancement technologies that promote graft survival and truly help with the growth of hairs in these areas. (Of note, Dr. Lam never removes this hair during one of his facelift procedures.)
Another reason to undergo facial hair transplant is to complete the work for female-to-male (FTM) transgender patients. These trans-men are interested in obtaining the full expression of masculinity and have various objective goals like cis-men would, for instance, moustache and goatee, or a full beard. As with any consultation, it is important to perform an accurate determination of donor hair capacity along with aesthetic goals for a particular individual.
