In a quest to overcome the online ridicule he faced from friends mocking his lack of facial hair, a man decided to put an end to the humiliation through a beard transplantation surgery.
Beyond possessing only sparse stubble, the man lacked any substantial hair beneath his chin, potentially impacting his self-esteem.
The entire surgical process was documented in a video shared on the X platform, formerly known as Twitter, courtesy of the user @the_Lawrenz. The footage captured the transformative moment when the man underwent the procedure and revealed his newly acquired facial hair.
Post-surgery, the man sported a full beard and was visibly pleased, radiating confidence as he showcased his remarkable transformation.
Curiosity about the beard transplantation process led to the question: What steps are involved in achieving such a transformation?
According to Healthline, beard transplantation is precisely what it sounds like: hair is extracted from one part of the body and transplanted onto the chin or any desired area for beard growth.
Before proceeding, a doctor must assess the candidate’s skin and hair to determine suitability, and the individual must weigh the costs involved in making the decision.
Similar to any medical procedure, there’s no absolute guarantee of complete satisfaction with the results, and the risk of scarring is always present. However, for those able to locate a qualified provider, exploring the possibility of investing a few hours in a doctor’s office for a lifetime of permanent facial hair might be worthwhile.
The procedure entails harvesting hair follicle grafts, typically ranging from 2,000 to 5,000 or more, from the back of the head, often near the ears or slightly below, and strategically placing them on the face. Each graft represents an individual hair follicle that undergoes transplantation.
