About Beard Transplant

Beard Transplant

A beard transplant is a surgical procedure performed to transplant hair from one part of the body to the face. In some men, facial hair may grow sparsely or there may be areas of patchiness. The procedure is performed on patients seeking a fuller and thicker beard.

The hair used for beard transplants is most commonly taken from the side or back of the scalp, however chest hair may be used in cases where the patient does not have an adequate amount of hair which can be taken from the scalp. The area from which the hair is taken, is usually referred to as the donor site.

The procedure is performed in the same way that a regular hair transplant is performed. There are two methods known as FUE (follicle unit extraction) and FUT (follicle unit transplantation). The FUE technique is a more popular technique used for beard transplants. An FUE transplant involves taking hair from the donor site on the body follicle by follicle, whereas FUT involves taking hair from the donor site in skin strips. Once the hair has been taken from the donor site, it is carefully transplanted to the beard.

Results will be somewhat visible after the procedure, however it can take up 5 months for the full results to show. Patients can usually begin to shave or style their beard approximately 5 weeks after the procedure.

Before Beard Transplant abroad

Usually, the surgeon will be able to estimate the number of grafts needed based on photographs, and give a final cost quote for the procedure. The number of grafts required for a beard transplant can range from less than 500 to over 3000 grafts, depending on the size of the area, hair thickness etc.

Upon arrival, the patient will generally meet with the surgeon for a face to face consultation ahead of the procedure. The surgeon will establish an appropriate donor site, discuss the procedure, and answer any outstanding questions that the patient may have.

How is it performed

The surgeon will begin the procedure by cleaning the donor site, most commonly the scalp, and injecting it with a local anesthetic to the numb the area before extraction.

There are 2 different techniques which can be used for the extraction of the donor hair. The hair can be removed in strips (known as strip harvesting or FUT), or it can be extracted follicle by follicle (known as FUE). Both techniques involve using a hollow needle to isolate the hair follicle before implanting it into its new position.

Anesthesia

Local anesthetic.

Procedure duration

The Beard Transplant takes 2 to 7 hours.

The procedure duration is dependent on the amount of hairs being transplanted.
