Dear forum readers,
This has been a repeated request by some of our patients for the past few years.
Many of them want to get certain beard hair removed. The commonest regions they want it removed are from -
- High up on the cheekbones
- Low down on the neck
While it is true that our primary work is transplanting hair, but this has come across as a novel request from people who have an overabundance of hair or from our female patients who have hair where they do not want.
We shall document some cases of hair removal by FUSE/fue (from facial areas as well as in repair transplants).
I think this is a facet worth reckoning when compared to other methods of hair removal considering that it is less traumatic and permanent.
As far as possible, we advise patients to use these hair for their scalp. But I do foresee a time when people may increasingly request for certain hair to be removed permanently.
