Thank you for answering my question… at the same time I have some hair around my neck and facial cheek that I don’t need…can we harvest those hair follicles to the mustache/goatee area without scarring on my face? So with about 700 grafts to my major scars, I can have a short hair without knowing I had a scar?
You're welcome J. In general, scalp hair is the most reliable and an excellent match for beard restoration. If it is the incision that is of concern, then the grafts can be obtained by the FUE technique. However, if you strongly wish to use beard hairs, we can try them but often they are not of sufficient quality. With your question about "without knowing I had a scar"- to which scar are you referring?
