What's it like to get a beard transplant?
Getting a beard transplant is exactly like any other hair transplant. In simple terms: getting your own hair from a donor area and transplant it to the bald areas. Let’s dive deeper on how a facial hair transplantation is done.
This surgical procedure can is done with the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique. This consists of directly taking the follicles from the back of the head to be transplanted to the beard area. All beard and hair transplants take 5 to 9 hours, during which patients feel no pain and experience no side effects.
It will take a couple of weeks after the hair transplant surgery for scabs to fall off, living behind minimal to no scarring. Soon after, enough hair will grow back into a thick beard that can be cut, shaven, dyed, and styled.
Are beard transplants permanent?
In short: yes, beard transplants are permanent. As with any cosmetic surgery, there is never a guarantee that it will be successful. Fortunately, all beard transplants have a 90% growth back success rate, which is one of the best cosmetic surgeries success rates. Natural facial hair growth will take 4 to 6 months to fully cover the beard area.
The thing about getting a facial hair transplant surgery is that you have to be a candidate first.
