Beards as a fashion statement aren't going away any time soon. In fact, even the professional golf world is being taken over by a bearded man, thanks to Graham DeLaet. The beard is not just for bikers, mountain men or lumberjacks anymore.
Justin Caba of Medical Daily wrote that beards have many health benefits that many people never considered:
- While many believe that facial hair gets hot and uncomfortable in the sun, beards can actually help protect your face from harmful ultraviolet rays.
- While the perception may be that beards can harbor germs, that's not actually the case. A comprehensive study published in the Journal of Hospital Infection concluded that growing a beard can actually help protect a man from bacteria and other infections.
"The beard transplant is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures for men."
The beard has become a manly fashion trend with health benefits to boot. But what if your beard grows in looking all patchy, or it won't grow in at all? Thankfully, Marotta Hair Restoration offers beard transplants.
Like beards themselves, the beard transplant has grown in popularity over the last few years, and it's now one of the most common plastic surgery procedures for men. The beard transplant procedure is relatively simple: Your doctor takes hair follicles from the back of the scalp and transplants them to your face. In time you'll begin growing your own natural beard! Pain and recovery time are minimal, and the procedure itself can be over in a few hours. The procedure is very similar to more traditional hair restoration treatments for the scalp.
