Beard hair FUE is a scalpel free procedure and does not leave a linear scar, unlike traditional hair transplant procedures. Patients who wish to use beard hair must consult a board certified physician such as Dr. Umar from Finetouch Dermatology to assess their hair texture and declare them a viable candidate. FUE performed with beard hair is also different from the process of extracting hair from the scalp.
Candidates who qualify for a beard hair transplant can substitute the hair donor areas for lack of donor hair in the head and nape area, which are traditionally used for hair transplants. Usually patients who have had prior hair transplants are considered for a beard hair transplant, since donor areas might not be feasible depending on the amount of donor hair needed for a successful hair transplant.
The technique by which Dr. Umar transplants beard hair, SFET (also known as the “Umar Procedure”), is his advanced version of the procedure commonly referred to as Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). The “Umar Procedure” is knife-free, and the protocol has enabled the transfer of hair from the back of the head, body, and beard to the balding areas of the head. This method is significant because it enables the transplantation of body and facial hair (BHT) as well as head hair, which increases the donor hair supply and thus gives hope for many severely bald patients in need of hair transplant repair or additional hair transplants.In addition, Dr. Umar has found the application of body and beard to hair to be also very useful for the treatment of hair transplant reparations. Dr. Umar has found that beard hair derived grafts are a valuable resource in repairing patients with widened strip scars resulting from follicular unit hair transplantation (FUT) . By grafting these scars with beard hair, their appearance is minimized.
