Daniel-Repair with beard hair.
This patient had approximately 17 previous operations which included scalp reductions, flaps and strip excision.
He only has very sparse body hair which will be required to repair his frontal hairline. This meant there was no alternative other than beard hair to repair the massive scars on the back of his head which he otherwise had to disguise with a hair piece.
1,100 Beard Hair grafts were transplanted into the scar area under microscopic control utilizing the finest instrumentation and technique possible. Transection rates were approx. 5%.
Beard hair can be very coarse, feel �sharp or prickly� and look unnatural on the frontal scalp region but can be used to repair donor scars.
The pinkness is fading gradually and now looks little more than a shaving rash.
I wish to stress that Beard hair should be removed below the jaw line to avoid any possibility of pock marks and indentations on the face.
Beard Hair is not easy to remove and is prone to transection and damage in the removal process. If not done correctly, for every �single� good follicle, several follicles could be damaged and non viable.
If Beard hair is to be considered the last body hair resource then careless removal must be avoided at all costs.
This may deplete valuable stores below the jaw line and force some doctors to attempt removing beard hair from the face and this I believe is potentially problematic and only to be used as an absolute last resort.

About our Photos
All photos shown in our photo gallery are genuine. The stills are taken directly from video filming before, during and after the procedure using a Sony TRV 900E video camera. We have chosen this format because it provides the most accurate and true to life assessment possible despite the slightly diminished quality of the still photos transfered to our website. All patients can have access to their video record upon request. Still photographs taken from video allow us a complete and honest overview of before and after the procedure. However, these photos are not ‘Studio Glamour Portraits’ therefore soft focus, special lighting etc., has NOT been used. All videos have been taken by the doctors during consultation and the procedure.
These videos can be shown to you upon consultation confirming their authenticity.
