Information about our Beard Transplant surgery
 
What is a Beard Transplant procedure?
A beard transplant is hair taken from one part of the body and transplanted to your jawline and wherever you want your beard to grow.

There are two main approaches a surgeon can take:

Follicular unit extraction (FUE). This approach is done by harvesting complete follicular units one at a time from the donor area. FUE is less painful, which may explain why it’s the more commonly performed procedure

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT). For this approach, a surgeon cuts a small strip of tissue from the back of the head and removes the hair follicles from that tissue.

A follicular unit is a small grouping of several hair follicles that may emerge through the skin through the same exit point.

Both procedures take anywhere from 2,000 to 5,000 hair follicle grafts or more from the back of the head, usually level with your ears, or a little lower, and implant them on the face.

A graft is a hair follicle that is transplanted into the beard area.

Why have a Beard Transplant procedure?
An increasing number of men are today embracing facial hair and beards as it is a global craze and sign of masculinity and not a clean-shaven look. As it takes some time to grow a beard and it can be a challenge for some to even grow stubble, this transplant can be the solution if you are keen at sprouting more facial hair.

How is the procedure performed?
Here is an overview of the steps involved in the procedure:
 
Harvesting
Whether you have chosen to have a FUE or a FUT, your surgeon’s first step will be to shave the area on your head that’s being harvested.
 
This gives a clearer view of the hair follicles. Before the harvesting begins, you will be given a local anaesthetic, so you will not feel the harvesting or the implantation.
 
Implantation
Once the follicles have been harvested from your head, the surgeon will inject a local anaesthetic into the area of your face where the implants will be placed. Then, the surgeon will implant each follicle into your facial skin, shaping your new beard the way you and the doctor agreed on prior to surgery.
