Technically the beard transplant is similar to a scalp hair transplant. During the procedure, the hair grafts are taken from the rear of the scalp or other part of the body and transplanted on the face where ever is required. Normally 2,500 to 3,500 grafts can be transplanted in facial hair in a single sitting. A few specialists may use grafts with two follicles per graft to give more normal look.
Techniques of Extraction and Implantation of grafts
In the surgical procedure the body parts from where hair is taken is called “donor sites” and the bald body parts are called “recipient sites.”
The specialists plan the procedure in advance. Beard hair transplant is done under local anesthesia. The Specialist administers local anesthesia in the donor sites and recipient sites site. The hair grafts are then removed individually either by FUE or FUT technique.
In FUT harvesting of follicular units the strip is removed from donor site normally from back of head and then single grafts are extracted with keeping surrounding tissues intact from it. These grafts are transplanted to reconstruct the beard or fill the bald patches on the beard or sideburns. Previously, donor site is stitched back by doctors, leaves a very thin line of mark on the back of the scalp after healing, but becomes invisible inside grown hair.
The other method which is more popular and which we use is FUE or Follicular unit extraction method of extracting one by one individual graft (usually base of the scalp on the back). Scalp hair is removed from the back and side of the head by FUE and transplanted onto the chin and cheeks.
While planning for beard transplant we divided the face into two sections. One that is side of the face includes the sideburns, cheeks, and jawline. The second is the front area that includes the moustache and goatee. These areas require a varied density of hair.During the implantation procedure the doctor gives attention to the direction, density and angle of new hair.
This procedure may last for about 6 - 7 hours.

Once the procedure is done the new hair growth starts appearing in the 4 to 8 weeks. The doctor’s skill determines how much the new hair imitates the natural beard when it has grown.
