Hair Transplant

Facial hair growth, or lack thereof, and patchiness may be a result of 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.

Facial Hair Transplants – in this case Beard Restoration specifically – saw a significant increase around the world over the past year. According to the  The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, (ISHRS) announced in June 2020 that beard and moustache remain popular areas for hair transplants..

Beard transplants, a goatee, moustache, sideburn or eyebrow transplants, are specialist procedures, with outcomes highly dependent on the surgeon’s skills. We have two of Europe’s most sought after Hair Transplant surgeons who specialise in facial hair, beard, moustache, goatee, sideburn and eyebrow FUE hair transplants for patients of all ethnic backgrounds.

A recent study found that as many as 45% of men have been unhappy with the patchiness of their beard and sideburns.

For many cultures, facial hair is a sign of prestige and masculinity. The ability to grow a full and dense beard, designer stubble or a statement moustache allows them the versatility to change their look.

  • Aftercare

Beard Hair Transplant Treatment

The Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure, as used for hair transplants, is also utilised in Beard, Moustache, Goatee and Sideburn Hair Transplants. This method is a minimally invasive procedure used to restore hair density on different areas of the face. The procedure can take between three and nine hours – depending on the area treated and amount of hair required. For example, a goatee may require up to 1,500 hairs, while a full beard may need up to 4,000 hairs.

During the procedure the Surgeon locates the ‘stable zone area’ at the side or back of the head. This is used as the donor area for the beard, moustache or sideburns. Finer hair is typically needed for a Beard Transplant where the donor area is located at the sides of the head. If the patient is balding or is completely bald it is also possible to use body hair such as the chest area for the donor area.

An FUE Beard Transplant is a walk-in walk-out procedure and only local anaesthetic is used to ensure minimal downtime. Once the donor area is located each hair follicle is taken out one at a time using ‘punches’ to cut in and around the follicle. The size of the tools will depend on the size of the follicles required – the finer the hair the smaller the ‘punch’. This part of the process is completed very discretely and will be unnoticeable.

Once this is completed local anaesthetic is administered to the areas of the face for the hair transplant. Careful and skilful attention is used to ensure the extracted hairs are then implanted, one follicle at a time, at the right angle to give highest density and most natural looking results.

After Your Hair Transplant Treatment

The hair transplanted during an FUE Beard Transplant are placed permenantly and will look natural.  The difference will be noticeable immediately after the procedure is completed. As with any FUE Hair Transplant the full results are typically expected within several months.

The hair growth will begin and continue to grow as it does on the rest of the beard, sideburns, and moustache.

When it comes to researching hair transplants there are a lot of words that may seem confusing. We have created a glossary of the most popular Hair transplant words which you can view here.

FAQs

  • Will I have any scars on my face?

    The tools used to extract hair follicles from the donor area is less than 1mm in diameter. Scarring is often down to the skills of surgeons – our doctors are amongst the top in their field of hair transplantation, with international recognition, and they have spent years establishing methods to avoid visible scarring. There will be no visible scarring on the beard, moustache or sideburn area.

  • Are there any risks with facial hair transplants?

    You may experience a degree of redness in the treated area but this will subside within a few days. Hair transplanted for the head may require extra care and attention. Our team will be available to guide you through the aftercare procedure should you have any further questions at any point, as part of our aftercare commitment.

  • How much does Beard Hair Transplant cost?

    The cost of Beard and Facial Hair Transplants – beard, goatee, sideburns, etc. entirely depend on the extent of patchiness or hair loss your are experiencing and average price can range from £3,000 to £7,000, depending on the number of hairs required to cover the area.

    We offer FREE consultations with our experienced Hair Transplant Patient Advisors. You may be required to see one of our Dermatologists initially to assess the reasons for hair loss. Consultations with our Consultant Dermatologists are £200.

  • What is the beard transplant recovery process and downtime?

    There is little to no down time with the FUE Beard Transplant Procedure as only a local anaesthetic is used. After the procedure patients are able to leave the clinic immediately and continue on with their normal routine.

  • How much does a beard hair transplant cost?

    We can only give an accurate quote after consultation as we work on a case-by-case basis for your individual requirements. We work by hair, not graft, which allows us to choose only the strongest and healthiest follicles for transplantation.

    I work with Mr Riaz Agha, a Harley Street Plastic Consultant Surgeon at one of his private clinics. I am impressed with not only his standard and quality of work but also the care and kindness that he shows to all of his patients and team. I have worked with a huge variety of different consultants over the years but Mr Argha really stands out and I would highly recommend him to friends and family, and of course if ever I consider to have any procedures in the future.

    A really positive experience. Alex is a fantastic patient co-ordinator, so friendly and reassuring. After a few changes of plan due to Covid lockdown, I feel so grateful to have had the opportunity to have Dr Fattah performing my procedure. Extremely thorough and precise from the first consultation, I really trusted him. My main aim was to restore my figure after children/breastfeeding, with a really natural look that would work with my lifestyle, gym etc. Dr Fattah really “got” this and I trusted his judgement on size of implant and placement completely. I’m absolutely delighted with the result and the aftercare support has been great – surgery follow up and then annual check ups for reassurance. Thank you team, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend ?

    From the start to finish of my T-Lift procedure, I felt in good hands. The entire team at The Private Clinic were very caring and professional. Mr Falladah is an excellent surgeon, he explained everything clearly -before and during the procedure – and has a calm and reassuring manner. Because I was well-informed regarding what to expect after surgery, I was able to manage with minimal pain medication, but I’m glad I took a couple of days off work to recover. I’m really pleased with the results – a five star recommendation!

    I had preservation rhinoplasty with Dr Rochira in December 2019. I couldn’t be happier with my results. The results are very natural-looking and I feel so much more confident with my side profile. Dr Rochira is an amazing surgeon and I instantly felt comfortable. He knew exactly what I wanted and was very realistic with the results in my consultation. Thank you!

    Dr. Rochira performed a preservation rhinoplasty on me in December 2019. I trusted his suggestions for my nose and now, 9 months later, I couldn’t be happier with the results I’m seeing. I did not experience any bruising at all, only swelling around my eyes for the first couple of weeks — my nose itself took a few months to settle and I feel like it has really grown into the rest of my features. I entirely recommend this surgeon if you are looking for a natural result and an extremely pleasant experience.
