Beard Transplants Los Angeles: One Man’s Personal Facial Hair Story

Some people are born blessed with perfect features. Their bodies are built for physical success and all they have to do is some simple grooming to look their very best. The luckiest of men are born with full, thick facial hair. Perfect for styling. Perfectly shaped. Manly in appearance. Masculine. You know what I’m talking about.

However, for the rest of us, we must turn to other options to fix patchy bald spots in our beards and mustaches. Even when facial hair growth is relatively well-balanced, symmetry doesn’t always occur. For some reason, our body doesn’t always quite sync up. I myself know this too well.

My Personal Facial Hair Experience

I attended Catholic school for 12 years. Consequently, that meant no facial hair was allowed. Finally, after graduation, I began my first attempt to sport some manly facial hair. I was a bit disappointed, to say the least. When I began growing my long-awaited facial hair, nothing wanted to grow. Lame!

Finally, about a year in, I started to see I was growing some beard hair on my chin. However, it was less than appealing. My beard growth seemed to only occur on each side of my chin. In other words, I had two small patches of hair. It looked really stupid. Despite this, I persevered, hoping that the middle would begin to grow in. That didn’t happen. At least not for another couple of years. Of course, at this time in my life, I didn’t even know beard transplants were an option. In fact, I had no idea hair transplants were even a thing. So young… so naive.

I can’t really pinpoint the time when my beard finally started to fill in, but eventually, it happened. Glorious! But after a while, I began to notice something. The areas where my hair had first started to grow were twice as thick as the rest of my beard hair. In fact, to this day, if I trim my beard with a 3mm clipper head, you can see it come in much darker. It almost appears that I’m wearing a goatee over my beard. A really weird goatee at that!

But that’s not all I began to notice, I saw that the area of my beard right below my lip was uneven… on both sides. One side dipped down while the other side went up further and almost melded with my mustache. Finally, as my mustache came in fuller, I also noticed that my left side had a small patch that just never grew in. To this day, it hasn’t and I doubt it ever will without surgical intervention.

Considering Other Options

Ultimately, while I’ve begun growing out my mustache longer to hide the missing patch and began waxing the bottom area, these are only temporary solutions to my bear and mustache hair problems. It was at this point that I started doing some research and stumbled upon mustache and beard transplants in Los Angeles. I was intrigued.

When I learned about beard transplants, I began considering getting a beard transplant in Los Angeles to fix my facial hair failings. As I had tried for years to groom myself and still hadn’t achieved my desired results, the prospect of receiving a beard transplant looked more and more likely. While I still have yet to make the final call, it’s definitely on my radar.

One thing’s for sure. Reno is not a good option when it comes to the cost of beard transplants. I’ve done my research and LA is the place to go, should I make that choice in the future. I just need some more time to think. However, the thought is always in the back of my mind. Every time I look in the mirror. Every time I have to trim my funny beard growth down with a smaller blade. Each time I wax the furry patches to match the bald spots. A quiet voice whispers in the back of my mind… “Do it… get the beard transplant.”

Beard Transplants Los Angeles

Alex’s story is common for many men all over the country. After all, the body is a complex machine. And like any machine, things don’t always work properly. Our hair can be an absolutely mystery. Even with no family history of hair growth issues, you may not be so lucky. If you’re experiencing thin or patchy spots in your beard and/or mustache, consider a beard transplant in Los Angeles to solve your problem.

Just like standard hair transplants, beard transplant patients can utilize both FUE and FUT procedures to fill in missing facial hair. Typically, an FUE procedure will consist of the removal of 2500 – 3000 grafts. It may cost about $8,000. FUT will also cost about $8000 and a similar number of grafts may be necessary.

However, in a case like the one experienced by Alex, he may need only a minimal amount of hairs to be transplanted into his beard and mustache regions. As each case is different, a beard transplant consultation should be booked to speak with an experienced physician who can assess your particular situation.
