A beard transplant involves harvesting hair from one area of the body and implanting it into the face to create a fuller beard that matches your aesthetic goals.
Though not as common as hair restoration, many people seek hair transplant procedures for other areas of the body, like the beard. Meshkin Medical specializes in body hair transplants for the beard, eyebrows, and chest.
If you’re unhappy about the look of your beard or you want facial hair but it’s impossible for you to grow a beard, then you should schedule a consultation at Meshkin Medical. The highly talented team can talk to you about a beard transplant and evaluate your face and the areas where they can harvest hair to restore your beard or give you the beard you have always wanted.
Before moving forward with your beard transplant, your provider at Meshkin Medical outlines the beard area in a way that conforms to the natural symmetry of your face. That helps the team determine where you need transplanted hair and gives you a visual of what you can expect after your procedure.
The hair restoration experts at Meshkin Medical remove hair from the donor zone in the back of the head using follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplant (FUT) techniques. Then, your provider prepares your harvested hair into refined hair follicle units.
Using a very fine customized needle, your provider makes small incisions into your skin, following the natural orientation and direction of your hair. Then, they place the prepared hair follicle grafts into the incisions.
You can expect crusting around the implanted hair, but these side effects resolve within a few days. Most people return to work within a week after a beard restoration.
Depending on the size of the area undergoing the transplant, you may need more than one session spaced several months apart to get the look you want.
It’s not unusual for transplanted hair to fall out within a few weeks after the procedure, but new hair should grow within several weeks. You may see improvements in beard growth within three months and final results within nine months.
