In beard transplant, under local anaesthesia, the surgeon extracts hair grafts from the donor area and implants it into the bald beard region. The donor area can be your scalp or your jawline depending on the availability of sufficient grafts.
Here we have mentioned the procedure for Scalp to Beard – Transplant:
- Your head and facial beard are shaved at first.
- Local anaesthesia is given on the scalp as well as on the face.
- Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) method is used for a beard transplant at our clinic.
We extract the hair grafts from the sides or the back of your head and implant them one at a time in your beard area. Once the hair grows, with regular shaving, the hair gets rough and looks like a natural beard. Since the scalp has more hair grafts compared to the jawline, it can help you to get maximum beard density.
The procedure for using jawline hair grafts for beard transplant is the same as scalp to a beard hair transplant. The only difference is that the jawline hair has similar characteristics as the beard. Hence, the beard will look more natural.
