Beard Transplant or Facial Hair Transplant
Beard Transplant Bangalore
Beard Transplant or Facial hair transplantation is a commonly performed surgical procedure designed to transplant scalp hair to facial regions lacking density and fullness. Our Clinic specializes in FUE surgery, but we also perform linear strip surgery. The more modern hair restoration procedure to harvest follicles for facial hair transplantation is the FUE technique.
With the FUE procedure the follicular grafts are harvested from the posterior or back portion of the scalp similar to traditional hair transplant procedures. The new hair grafts are then re-implanted in the facial regions requiring greater facial hair density.
Advanced FUE Beard Transplant
The way in which beard transplant is performed, needs to be designed carefully. More specifically, the doctor will examine a series of criteria, such as the age of the patient who wants to undergo the Advanced FUE beard transplantation, the hair density in the donor site on the head (or the chest, which may also be chosen as a donor site), the facial features, and the result that patient may expect. The doctor should also determine the number of hair follicles to be implanted, based on the clinical picture of the patient and the desired density.
The stages of beard transplant with FUE method are:
- The doctor determines and maps the donor site from which the hair follicles will be taken. This should be a rich site that is not predisposed to thinning.
- The specialist applies local anaesthesia and removes the hair follicles one by one with a special device.
- The follicles are preserved in a suitable wet and cold environment, until the transplantation is performed.
- The doctor plans the area where the beard transplant will be performed.
- Finally, he places the grafts by Advanced FUE technique

The implantation of the hair follicles in the receptor site is done with the aid of a special implanter device, which allows the positioning of each hair follicle not only at the proper depth but also under the correct angle and direction, as each area of the face (moustache, sideburns, beard, etc.) requires a different angle and direction in order to mimic the normal appearance of facial hair. Because of this extremely demanding process, there are only a few hair transplant clinics worldwide that have the knowledge and experience required for beard transplantation, proudly we can say we are one among them.
Who are the ideal candidates for beard transplant?
Beard transplant is indicated for those who have thin hair for hereditary or hormonal reasons (e.g. hypothyroidism), or due to an injury, burn or scar. All the above, indeed, are considered as the main causes of beard thinning. In many cases of mostly young men, sparse facial hair can be observed even if there is no hereditary factor.
What is the cost of beard implantation?
The price for an Advanced FUE beard transplant varies, depending on the extent of the problem and the location of the affected area, namely whether it involves e.g. a small scar or a larger area, like moustache or sideburns transplantation, or full beard restoration. Also, the cost is determined and increases proportionally to the duration of surgery and the choice of an unshaven FUE session, i.e. the possibility to undergo beard transplantation without shaving the donor site.
