How Does FUE Beard Transplant Work?

FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. It’s a minimally invasive procedure in which our expert hair surgeon uses hair from a “stable zone,” usually the back or side of the head, to boost hair density in the area you want to improve, such as the beard, goatee, moustache, or sideburns. The hair that is used to treat the problem area is referred to as the “hair site.” If you’re bald or balding and don’t want your hair to be plucked from your head, chest hair can be used as a donor location. Fine hair is often required for beard transplants.

Depending on the amount of hairs needed, a FUE beard transplant can take anywhere from three to nine hours to complete and is performed as an outpatient procedure. Each hair follicle is punched out one at a time, then a local anesthetic is administered to the treatment region, and the hair follicles are implanted.Our doctors take great care to ensure that each hair is implanted in a natural-looking manner and at the correct angle to achieve maximum density.

FUE beard transplant can take anywhere from three to nine hours to complete, depending on the number of hairs needed, and is done on an out patient basis. Each hair follicle is removed one by one with a punch process, then local anaesthetic is applied to the area that will be treated, and then the hair follicles implanted. This is a skilful technique and our surgeons take time to ensure each hair is implanted in a natural looking fashion, and at the right angle to achieve highest density.

Am I Suitable For a Facial Hair Transplant?

To get a facial hair transplant, you must have some hair on your body that can be extracted and transplanted to the desired location. Even if you are bald or balding and do not want your head hair removed, it may be doable if you have hair elsewhere on your body. Hair from the back or side of the head, beard hair under the chin, or chest hair are commonly used in beard transplants. If you’re not sure if you’re a good candidate, schedule a free, no-obligation consultation with one of our hair care experts and we’ll be able to give you a definitive answer.

Frequently Asked Questions

When you undergo your beard transplant you may notice a certain amount of redness in the area where your hair is implanted. This, however, should decrease and fade within the next few days. Certain hair transplants may need a little extra aftercare and attention and we will advise you about this when you come in for your consultation, and if it is applicable to your procedure. If you are concerned about any aspect of the beard transplant process, please just ask our experts – we want you to feel as comfortable and confident as possible during the procedure.
FUE beard transplants only use a local anaesthetic, so that means you can get straight back on with your day once the procedure is completed. However, your skin will need time to heal properly and this should take between five to seven days. After this, any reddening should lessen and fade, and if you experienced any swelling, this will have subsided.
The results you experience will be permanent and noticeable immediately. Our surgeons are highly skilled in their work and they will ensure your beard transplant looks as natural as possible. Transplanted hair follicles will be placed at the right angle to match the rest of your beard, and to give the best results for density and fullness. For more information about expected results, please speak to our specialists during your consultation.
Yes, your beard transplant will be permanent and you will be able to see a difference as soon as the surgeon finishes implanting the hair follicles. However, your results will improve over time but generally by month seven you should see the full and best result. Your new implanted hair will start and continue to grow just as the hair in the rest of your beard does. Enjoy!
