How’s a Beard Transplant Performed?
The FUE procedure is also used for Beard Transplants to restore facial hair. Just like a hair transplant, it is minimally invasive and it doesn’t leave scarring, making it a popular technique for a lot of men. The donor area used for a beard transplant is either the side or back of the head, depending on where there’s more finer hair. Once the donor area is prepared, the surgeon uses a punch to extract the individual hair grafts and makes small incisions where the grafts will be transplanted.
It’s a Popular Technique with A Lot of Men
In order to promote natural hair growth, the grafts are then placed in a predetermined density and pattern at the right angle. The technicians generally do the final part of the procedure, inserting the individual grafts in place. A beard transplant is administered under local anaesthesia and depending on the number of grafts to be transplanted it usually lasts around 4-6 hours. Initial results can be noticed after just six months, while full results are expected after one year following surgery. The results will look natural and hair will continue to grow permanently.

How many sessions will I need?
This depends on the size of the area that is being treated and your desired look, so you might need more than one session. Your surgeon will discuss with you what look you are aiming to achieve and on that basis give you an estimate on the number of grafts he’s able to transplant during your procedure.
Is there a recommended age for beard transplant?
There is no minimum age requirement for undergoing beard transplant surgery. This is because some men can begin to notice balding or thinning of the beard in their late teens or early twenties.
