BEARD TRANSPLANT

BEARD TRANSPLANT

What is a Beard Transplant?

A Beard Transplant is the surgical process of removing healthy hair follicles from your head and implanting (grafting) those follicles into a part of the chin, face, or neck that you desire fuller, thicker hair. You will likely have one of two procedures recommended for you. Whether the procedure will be FUE or FUT will depend on how in-depth of a procedure your desired outcome will require.

What To Expect from a Beard Transplant

The first step will be to shave the area on your body that is being harvested for follicles. This provides your doctor with a clearer view of the healthy follicles. Before the harvesting begins, you will receive a local anesthetic. The surgeon will then implant each follicle into your facial skin, shaping your new beard exactly how you want it to look.

After the procedure, tiny crusts will probably form around each implanted follicle, and they should flake off within a few days. It is usual for new beard hairs to fall out after 2 to 3 weeks, but new hairs should soon start growing to take their place.

Please remember that these are general guidelines and some people may need less or more time for a full recovery. You should work directly with the plastic surgeon who completed your procedure for specific instructions.
