Facial Hair Transplant
Facial hair adds definition and character to the face. All types of hair loss can be troubling, especially facial hair loss. If your beard, mustache, goatee, sideburns, or eyebrows are thin or balding, facial hair transplantation is a surgical procedure that can restore your facial hair and lead to hair growth on the recipient sites, or the facial areas where the transplanted hair grafts are placed.

Beard Transplant NYC
For men, a beard or mustache can be a sign of masculinity and an important element of your overall image. Patchy facial hair can be a frustrating problem and it is often difficult to find an effective solution. If you have always wanted a fuller, thicker, more defined beard, or if your beard has started to thin as a result of aging, Dr. Broumand and his team can help. A beard transplant procedure at our Manhattan practice can be customized to meet your needs and help you achieve the beard style that you want.
Eyebrow Transplant NYC
Many women realize that full, well-shaped eyebrows can improve their overall appearance by enhancing the eyes and adding definition to the face. If your eyebrows are naturally thin, or have become sparse due to aging, illness, or previous hair removal, a facial hair transplant for eyebrows can restore full, lush brows. An eyebrow transplant procedure can save you time and frustration by providing a permanent solution that will not fade or smear like many temporary cosmetic options.

How Does Facial Hair Transplant Work?
Dr. Broumand’s Manhattan Practice, 740 Park Plastic Surgery, is a SmartGraft Center of Excellence. We are thrilled to offer this highly advanced approach to facial hair transplantation, which uses your own hair to strategically replace missing facial hair for natural-looking results.
Preparing for Facial Hair Transplant
The first step is a consultation appointment with Dr. Broumand to determine if a facial hair transplant is right for you. During this consultation, Dr. Broumand will examine the area to be treated, as well as potential donor areas such as the back of your scalp, and discuss your goals and answer any questions you have. It can be helpful to bring pictures that represent your aesthetic goals. Once your procedure is scheduled, Dr. Broumand will give you detailed pre-operative instructions.
What to Expect During Your Procedure
You will be given a sedative to help you relax and the areas to be treated will be numbed with a local anesthetic. The procedure can take several hours, depending on your treatment plan. Dr. Broumand will begin by collecting individual hairs, or donor hairs from the back of the head with a SmartGraft device. The harvested hairs will be stored in a specialized collection unit while Dr. Broumand completes the collection process. Then he will open the hair follicles of the area to be treated before beginning the delicate process of transplantation. Dr. Broumand will take great care to expertly place each transplanted hair in order to give you ideal results.
Facial Hair Transplant Recovery
You may experience some tenderness or mild discomfort after your procedure, which can be managed with medication. You should refrain from washing your face and from exercise or strenuous activity for 2 days after your procedure.
Facial Hair Transplant Results
You may see immediate results, but it is normal for the initial transplanted hairs to fall out in preparation for regrowth. The new hair will then grow gradually over the next few months, with final results at about one year after your procedure. Patients typically enjoy thicker, fuller facial hair and permanent results.
