Is beard hair good for hair transplant?

Is beard hair good for hair transplant?

Beard hair: If you mean transplanting beard hair to the top of your head then generally the answer is NO. Beard hair almost always has a different texture than hair on your head and using your beard hair as donor hair will leave permanent scars on your face from where the hair is removed. ...Read more

Transplant (Definition)

In medicine: a transfer from one body or body part to another of an organ (liver, heart, lung, kidney, pancreas bowel) or tissue (hand, face, hair). The immune system fights foreign invaders (like infections) so it will reject transplants from other people (allotransplants) because they look like infections. So transplants usually require drugs to ...Read more

If I get a hair transplant from my beard to scalp, will my beard grow back? I ideally would like my beard to grow back

If I get a hair transplant from my beard to scalp, will my beard grow back? I ideally would like my beard to grow back

No beard to scalp: The beard and scalp have completely different types of hair, and beard hair is not suitable for the scalp. Also, scars are left in the hair donor site. Even if the beard was a suitable donor site, you would not want to have these scars on the face. Donor hair should be taken from the back of the head where the hair density is sufficient. I use the Neograft technique, which leaves no linear scars. ...Read more

Is it suggested to wear a face mask to avoid infections as a kidney transplant patient?

Is it suggested to wear a face mask to avoid infections as a kidney transplant patient?

Hmm: Some people advocate this. I do not routinely suggest this to my patients. I instruct them to "be smart" and not go places where people are ill. Wash their hands after contact. Wearing a mask won't hurt anything but it may not add a whole lot either. ...Read more

How can grow a thick beard?

How can grow a thick beard?

It's genetic: A few men have tried painting their faces with rogaine (minoxidil) but the results haven't been altogether salutary. Around 5% of men have no chest hair and very little facial hair, and if you are not genetically programmed to have a thick beard and a lot of body hair, you can't change this. Most women in the usa seem to prefer a smoother, thin-bearded man, & if you're fit, lean, muscular, this is all moot. ...Read more

Is there anything I can take for a fuller beard?

It's the genes, man!: About 5% of men, myself included, can't grow a beard or chest hair. Many women prefer this, and guys like us usually don't go bald.

Remember a guy looks good if, and only if, he's physically fit. Cheers. ...Read more

Nerve transplants possible in the next 10 years?

Nerve transplants possible in the next 10 years?

Nerve transplants: Yes quite possible. The biggest issue is coverage. Right now where we are heading is toward rationed care, expensive services will be restricted. If transplants are expensive and successful in less than 50% of cases they will likely not be covered. Pt will be needed after and this is already being restricted under obamacare to 24 sessions unless a new problem arises. ...Read more

Use a lubricant when shaving. Avoid using products that contain alcohol or are scented. Shave in direction of the hair – not against it. Be gentle when shaving – don’t push down too hard. Moisturize skin after shaving. ...Read more

How can organ transplants work?

Healthy new organ!: When your own organ (s) don't work they fail to perform the key functions that keep you alive. Replacement parts (from another human) are connected to you. Medications are given to prevent your immune system from recognizing that these "new" organs have different DNA than you do, preventing rejection. Technical success + consistent use of medications (every single day!) = success. ...Read more

Are there any other options besides transplanting a kidney?

Dialysis: When the kidneys have failed entirely only dialysis and kidney transplantation are effective for treatment unless the kidneys recover function on their own or with treatment.
