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 thicken the area. He had 2 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 morning of the transplant, Dr. Gabel transplanted 1,979 grafts into the patient’s beard area on his face, both restoring the area suffering from alopecia, and thickening the area on the sides of the face, matching the original beard hair direction to assure that the hairs grow in the correct pattern and direction.
At the 6 month check-in, the patient sent photographs of the growth in the beard area. There is dense growth in the area which had formerly been sparsely covered and has grown into a beard that the patient is satisfied with. He looks forward to seeing what the final beard result looks like at the 1-year point.
