About Beard and Moustache Transplantation

Beard and moustache transplantation is generally performed on men who suffer from spotty or patchy loss of hair from parts of the beard like sideburns, moustache and goatee. The reason for the absence of hair can be related to surgical scars, burns, other accidents or can be hereditary. Some males see keeping a thick beard or moustache as a symbol of manhood and religion. For some males a beard and moustache is just for fashion.

Beard and Moustache Transplantation Procedure

During a beard and moustache transplantation the FUE technique is used just like in hair transplantation from the scalp. The grafts are extracted from the donor site which is the back of the scalp. Once the grafts are extracted they are transplanted onto the bold portions or patchy portions of the beard or moustache. Almost all of the patches can be covered and treated in a single sitting due to the abundant amount of hair from the donor site.

I have facial scars. Can I have transplant for those areas?

Dear Ibrahim,
Yes you can have transplant to scar areas. But because those areas are not fed good by the vessels, the rate of the hair to hold at the end is less than normal skin areas. To get more detailed information from our doctor, we will be sending you e-mail and you can send back the photos of the area.
Kind regards,
