Hi, I am 50 years old. I am unable to grow sideburns. I am sure it is inherited because I can grow a great mustache and facial hair on my chin, and from there, down my neck, but no sideburns which I have always wished I could. So, I see you folks may be able to help me. I have the usual questions, cost, and will the results look natural? Thanks!
Unless you have a disease like alopecia areata, you should be able to get hair transplants to place into the face and chin to create a beard, mustache, or sideburns. We do these kind of procedures all of the time and they look completely natural. The use of a fine needle to create the sites in the facial beard area is important to minimize any puckering of the skin. Most doctors charge by the graft, but some charge a flat fee. Your costs can be estimated by sending me photos to the email address on my Contact page. To help get an understanding of where you want the transplants, I would suggest marking up your face, beard area, and chin with a China Marker, which will easily wash off. You can get a China Marker from a local stationary store.
Here are some examples of sideburn transplants we have done at NHI:
