Beard Hair Transplant
45% of men in the UK have been unhappy with their inability to grow beard facial hair. The main obstacle to this growth is patchiness throughout their beard and sideburns caused by either scarring or genetics.

Beard Transplants Aftercare
The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) methodology, as utilized for hair transplants, is also used in Beard Hair 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 area treated and the 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 facial hair, moustache or sideburns. A FUE Beard Hair 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 are 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 for your beard facial hair.
Our excellent surgical team are always on hand after your procedure to answer your questions to ensure you receive the best level of care to aid your receovery.
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.
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.
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.
Again this can vary on how many grafts you require and how big the area you want to cover. Filling in a small patch can take just 2 hours whereas designing a beard from scratch and planting a large number 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
Is it more painful than a hair 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.
Is there different aftercare?
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.
Do I have to have FUT?
For beard transplants, you can have FUT or FUE. It is a personal preference however we prefer to recommend FUE beard transplant. The consultant will recommend the best transplant results for you at your consultation.
Does the hair grow like beard hair if it's taken from the head?
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.
How long does it take to heal?
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 for the redness to fade and for everything to look back to normal.
