What is A Beard Transplant?

Beard transplant is the method of hair restoration in which the surgeon transplants hair on the beard region using the scalp hair follicles. It’s referred to any procedure that reconstructs a new beard or enhances an existing beard by transplanting scalp hair to beard areas.


Why use Scalp Hair for Beard Hair Transplant?

The surgeon extracts the hair follicles from the donor regions like from the back or sides of the head. And then implants them on the recipient areas or where treatment is required i.e. beard.


Hair from the donor regions of the scalp is resistant to hair loss and has same texture same as the beard. That’s the reason scalp hair is used in the beard hair transplant.

Less Donor Hair Supply:

Some patients don’t have this type of donor hair supply. So for those patients, hair from other areas like arms, legs or chest can be used as an alternative to the beard hair transplant surgery.


Procedure and Steps of the Beard Hair Transplant:

First of all, the surgeon will administer local anesthesia at the donor region for the painless extraction process of hair follicles.


Then the hair follicles are extracted from the donor regions like back or sides of the head and afterward, he will administer local anesthesia to the recipient area for the painless implantation process.

The surgeon will make tiny incisions in the recipient area like a beard. In the end, he will implant the extracted hair follicles into the tiny incisions to complete the surgery.
