Beard Implants Are Apparently A Trend

tumblr_mk5wqgyMsn1rq6xvjo1_400Looks like we spoke too soon when we called 2013 year of the butt. In the past year the number of men opting for a “beard transplant” has sky rocketed in the UK, according to the Daily Mail.

“Whilst many men may be looking for full fop of facial fuzz,” says alliteration lover Dr. Bessam Farjo, the UK doctor that “pioneered” the first facial hair transplant in 1996, “the majority of patients seeking facial hair transplantation do so to fill gaps and create ‘designer stubble’.”

Farjo claims that he’s seen a “six-fold” increase in these procedures in the past five years. Hair transplant procedures are the most popular form of cosmetic surgery for men in the UK. Over 4,500 procedures were performed last year, 13% more than the year before. To put that in perspective, over 3,000 more men got beard implants than nose jobs in the UK last year.

Across the pond, Esquire is a bit furious of this “treachery.”

“This is an abdication of a rite of passage. When a boy becomes a man, he gets hairier,” argues editor Nate Hopper.  Clearly, he doesn’t know that men have been using fake beards for ages:

    I gotta admit, that last part was funny

    Not a very good model for this article. No man with that much body hair would require a beard implant.

  • nevereclipsed81

    i wouldn’t need one. it takes me about 7 days to get that length of stubble. but it itches and i hate it.

    @ncman: He’s got the right amount of body hair for me!!

  • Ridpathos

    @ncman: Maybe he got chest hair implants too.

    For me these would be the only solution. I’m afflicted with the hairless-twink disease.

    @Ridpathos: Oh, that’s awful. No one likes twinks ;-)

    @grero: Who cares what this Mr. No One fellow likes. To each their own.

    “Oh I love your beard! What’s it made out of?” “…Your Mom’s chest hair.”

  • Teleny

    @ivanv15: yeah, that was good.

    Btw: Nicole is so beautiful.

  • Chris

    I need chest hair implants… any word on that? Does The Bosely Institute do that as well?

  • myownworst

    Woof..the guy in that pic is fucking bangin. I love beefy guys like that. Twinks register about a zero on my scale. The chest hair and beard made my pants tighter the second I saw him.
