The evolution of beards have come a long way and continue to do so by the day. In earlier times if you were one of the unlucky ones who could only grow a patchy bit of facial fluff you were left with very little option other than to disappointingly throw in the towel on your beard game dreams and shave it off forever more. Well now, thanks to the magic of modern day science, there is another option after all - A beard transplant. Yep, you read correctly, at the cost of a small fortune (I presume) you can now take advantage of the same technology already used for head hair transplants, only this time be it on your face. Each beard hair restoration begins by transplanting each of the hairs follicles one by one, and recent figures show they have a high success rate as they continue to rise each year in popularity.
The New York Times reported that the procedure is officially becoming another 'trend' (Grrrr, there's that dreaded 'T' word again!) especially among former hairless faced boys seeking for that much needed transition into a man with a 'beard fix.' According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, beard transplants rose from 1.5 percent of all hair restoration procedures performed globally back in 2012 to a climbing 3.7 percent. That is a 147 percent increase from 2012 to 2014. As previously suggested the price tag will set you back a pretty penny or two, as such procedures currently range between $4,000 for less troublesome beard patching to a staggering $22,000 for an entire face!!
Thankfully beard patchiness and bald troublesome areas can usually be corrected with a little extra beard TLC. All of our beard care products are carefully created to help with such problems and can make a huge advantage in your beard game growing success. You would most certainly be making a huge financial investment in your facial forests following through with such procedures, but if you had tried every other avenue possible to man with little to no success I can fully understand why people choose to use this route. Having a beard not only affects how you feel, but can also pay a huge part in a mans confidence & lifestyle. So, if you're a boy who is longing for a beard but is struggling to grow one of your own, (and just so happen to have a small fortune burning a hole in your pocket!) then a beard transplant procedure could be just what you have been waiting for! If, like me on the other hand you are petrified of needles and would rather have your nutsack punched by an angry gorilla than to have thousands upon thousands of tiny little needles piercing directly into your facial chops, that too is perfectly understandable!
