58-year-old male has a beard transplant of 1,979 grafts at the Gabel Center
This 58-year-old male patient was unable to grow a beard due to alopecia, and desired to see what could be done to restore facial hair to the areas that were thinning. He had two previous facial hair restoration attempts at other facilities to have his beard restored, but was unhappy and dissatisfied with his results.
After Dr. Gabel identified the patient as a good candidate for a beard transplant, the patient elected to go with the strip harvest method, in order to maximize the density in his face. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Gabel transplanted 1,979 grafts into the patient’s face, and thickening the area on the sides of the face, chin and mustache area, matching the original beard hair orientation to assure that the newly transplanted hairs grew in the correct pattern and direction.
At the 6 month check in, the patient sent photographs of the growth of his beard. There is dense growth in the area which had formerly been sparsely covered and has grown into a beard that the patient is very satisfied with. He looks forward to seeing what his final beard result will look like at the 1-year point.
