What is a Beard Transplant?

The concept of a beard transplant might seem like a strange one at first. After all, most guys don’t lose facial hair in the same way they do the hair on their head. However the purpose of a beard transplant isn’t necessarily to replace lost hair but to give the beard a more thick, full and consistent appearance.

Many guys are self-conscious about the appearance of their facial hair, whether it’s because the hair is too light, patchy or too thin. A beard transplant can help you to achieve a full, natural looking beard quite easily.

How is a beard transplant performed?

Beard transplants are performed in a very similar way to hair transplants. The donor hair is first extracted from the back of the patient’s head. The hair can be extracted using either the FUE or FUT method. FUE procedures are often preferable for beard transplants since there’s no scarring in the donor area.

The donor hair is then placed in the areas of the face that need thickening up. This could be around the chin, the upper lip, the cheek area and around the sideburns. Beard transplant surgeons take great care to ensure that the hair is placed so that it grows in the right direction and looks as natural as possible.
