Healthy, thick hair that has flourished elsewhere on your head is extracted and transplanted to the beard area of the face, allowing it to naturally grow on the face and continue doing so like a normal facial hair follicle. The hair usually comes from the rear of the patient’s head for consistency’s sake.
Our Hair Transplant Doctor removes the hair follicles from the donor area, then implants them back into the skin of the beard area so they can create new growth. Our Hair Transplant Doctor must be careful to implant them at the natural angle of the hair, so it reflects the original hair growth pattern. Generally, only about 2,000- 3,000 grafts are necessary for a full beard. Sometimes to mimic the thickness and fullness of normal beards, our Hair Transplant Doctor will use two hair-grafts instead of individual ones.
