The Problem

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.

Beard Transplants for Men

Facial Hair Transplants – in this case Beard Restoration specifically – saw a significant increase around the world over the past year. In the UK alone 4,500 men underwent FUE Beard Transplants method to increase density and fullness to their beards.

Beard transplants, just as goatee, moustache, sideburn or eyebrow transplants, are specialist procedures, with outcomes highly dependant 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.

FUE Beard Transplant treatment procedure is available at our clinics in London Harley Street, Birmingham, Leeds, Manchester, Bristol , Glasgow and Northampton while we offer hair transplant consultations across the UK.

Facial hair growth, or lack thereof, and patchiness may be a result of either scarring or genetics. A recent study found that as many as 45% of men have been unhappy with the patchiness throughout their beard and sideburns.

For many cultures, facial hair is a sign of prestige and masculinity.

Men are now seeking versatility in their facial hair. The ability to grow a full and dense beard to desiring designer stubble or a statement moustache allows them to change their look and presence whenever they like.

How does the FUE Beard Transplant procedure works?

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.

The Results

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.

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.
