Beard Transplant


What is a beard implant?

A beard transplant is just that: Hair is taken from one part of the body and transplanted to your jawline and wherever you want your beard to grow.

That sounds simple enough, but it’s a rather involved process. There are two main approaches a surgeon can take:

  • Follicular unit extraction (FUE). 

  • Follicular unit transplantation (FUT). 

What’s the procedure like?

Here’s an overview of the steps involved in the procedure:


Whether you’ve chosen to have a FUE or a FUT, your surgeon’s first step will be to shave the area on your head that’s being harvested.

This gives them a clearer view of the hair follicles. Before the harvesting begins, you’ll be given a local anesthetic, so you won’t feel the harvesting or the implantation.


Once the follicles have been harvested from your head, the surgeon will inject a local anesthetic into the area of your face where the implants will be placed. Then, the surgeon will implant each follicle into your facial skin, shaping your new beard the way you and the doctor agreed on prior to surgery.


You’ll need a day to recover from the beard implant surgery. Tiny crusts may form around each newly implanted hair follicle, but these should flake off within a few days.

After about a week to 10 days, you should be able to start shaving normally and trimming your new beard.

A word of warning, however: Your new beard hairs may fall out after 2 or 3 weeks. This is normal, and new hair should grow in to take their place.
