Beard Transplant

A recent study has found that 45% of men in the United Kingdom have been unhappy with their inability to grow facial hair. The main obstacle to this growth is patchiness throughout their beard and sideburns caused by either scarring or genetics. If you have sparse facial hair, patchiness or any facial scars, a beard transplant, also known as a facial hair transplant, may be the solution for you. We are also seeing a growing number of F2M transgender patients seeking beard transplants as part of their gender reassignment. This is something we can happily carry out and have experience in doing.

Beard transplants are specialist procedures, with outcomes linked to the surgeon’s skills. At UK Hair Transplant Clinics we only use expert surgeons who can guarantee an excellent transplant outcome for patients of all ethnic backgrounds. FUE Beard Transplant treatment procedure is available at our clinics based in the UK and we offer facial hair transplant consultations across the country.

By offering a free beard transplant consultation we can potentially save you hundreds of pounds before the first step is taken to addressing your facial hair issues. Other clinics will charge you hundreds of pounds for these consultations and may prescribe expensive treatments that you just do not need.

    Beard Transplants Aftercare

    The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) methodology, as utilized for hair transplants, is also used in Beard Transplants. This technique is a non-invasive method used to reestablish hair thickness on various regions of the face. The technique can take longer due to difficult placement on the grafts, this also varies depending on the size of the are treated and number of follicles required. For instance, a goatee may only require up to 1,500 follicles, while a full facial hair transplant may require many more.

    During the surgery the surgeon finds the ‘Donor Area’ along the sides and back of the head as this is the permanent zone protected from DHT. This is utilised as the area from where follicles are taken for the facial hair, moustache or sideburns. A FUE Beard Transplant is a 1 day surgery and allows minimal downtime post-surgery. Once the ideal donor area is found, every hair follicle is taken out in turn. We use smaller “punches” to trim around the follicle as we need smaller grafts for implanting facial hair. This part of the procedure is finished discretely and will be unnoticeable after the donor area heals.

    When this is finished, local anaesthetic is administered to the areas of the face where the beard transplant will be carried out. Caution and skill is needed to guarantee the extracted hairs are then embedded, one follicle at a time, in the correct area successfully. This will result in astounding thickness and fantastic looking outcomes.

    Success Rate

    91% this is just for our clinic as we pride ourselves on only working with surgeons who have trained especially in beard transplants and know that the grafts and incisions needed for successful growth are different to that of a normal hair transplant. We do a lot of correctional work also for beard transplants.

    Genetics

    Low growth in the beard isn’t something we can change with products as it is part of your genes, some people are able to grow full beards and others grow in patches. This can only be rectified with surgery, the most common reason for beard transplant is to fill in areas of low growth or to redesign the shape.

    Cost

    Beard transplants has the biggest variety of cost as it can start from 1 small area of correction to designing a full beard from scratch. The best way to get a price is to come for a consultation so we can tell you how many grafts are required for the area you are worried about and this will generate a price.

    Treatment Time

    Again this can vary on how many grafts you require and how big the area is you want to cover. Filling in a small patch can take just 2 hours whereas designing a beard from scratch and planting a large amount of grafts into the facial area can take up to 10 hours. Plenty of breaks will be given during the day.

    What Are The Benefits Of The Beard Transplant

    It is slightly more painful as the anaesthetic is going into your lower cheek and jaw area rather than your scalp and the skin is thinner, the injections can be quite painful closer to your mouth however once the anaesthetic kicks in you won’t feel it anymore. The average pain score for a hair transplant is 3 whereas for a beard transplant it is 6 out of 10.
    Yes the aftercare is different, if anything it is easier than for a hair transplant but your patient coordinator will be on hand every step of the way to answer your questions on this. You also get a personalised timetable to help tell you what to do after surgery. The main thing to note for beard transplant aftercare is that we recommend eating softer foods in the first 7 days as chewing hard foods can dislodge follicles.
    For beard transplants you can have FUT or FUE it is personal preference however we prefer recommend FUE. The consultant will recommend the best for you at your consultation.
    Not to start with, we have to train the hairs to grow like beard hairs. The hairs will need trimming to start with, it takes a few months for the hairs to gain memory and eventually they do stop growing like normal hairs. The incisions made for the grafts will be made in the direction beard hair should grow so the growth angle will be natural straight away, it is the hair type and length that will take a few months to match that of a normal beard.
    Beard transplants heal remarkably quick. It takes around 4-5 days for scabbing to come off and by 7 days it looks pretty much back to normal. We still recommend 2 weeks off work to for redness to fade and everything to look back to normal.
