The internet was buzzing today after Spike Lee went on a 7-minute teaching spree about gentrification in New York City, but it seems like these “motherfucking hipsters,” as he called them, are bringing another trend to the forefront: Beard implants.
According to DNA info, New York City doctors who specialize in the procedure said they’re seeing a growing number of men paying as much as $7,000 to plump up their beards. Yes, forget about having a lush head of hair; it’s all about what’s happening below the cheek bones now.
DNA info reports:
“Whether you are talking about the Brooklyn hipster or the advertising executive, the look is definitely to have a bit of facial hair,” said Dr. Jeffrey Epstein, a facial plastic surgeon who has performed the procedure for 12 years.
Epstein said he started out doing just a handful of beard transplants each year a decade ago — but is now averaging about three beard implants a week through his offices in Midtown East and Miami.
So, step away from the razor men. There are some who would pay to be the grade of fuzzy animal you are.
