You can get the beard you always wanted?
Just like a haircut, you’re better off bringing a photograph, because you can dictate how you want your new beard to look.
Where does the hair come from?
In this case, your new beard is made from hair that comes from the back of your scalp. This hair most closely resembles the hair grown around the chin.
What is different about facial hair transplant from transplanting to the scalp?
In facial hair transplant only single hair grafts are typically used and the hair angle that the hair follicles exit the scalp are more dramatic. This is why you need a physician with a lot of artistic and surgical experience.
How long does it take to grow?
Like traditional hair transplantation the tiny transplanted hair shed after 2 weeks and begins growing around 10-12 weeks. With facial hair full growth is often achieved in less than 6 months.
Beard transplants aren’t just for the goatee zone.
You can also get eyebrow and sideburn transplants!
