What is a beard transplant?
Beard transplantation is a plastic and cosmetic surgery procedure that can help you if your beard or mustache is thin, unshaped or non-existent.
Men resort to this operation to improve the density of their beard.
There is no scarring because the grafts are taken by FUE technique.
What are the objectives?
The objectives of the beard transplant are:
- Increase the density of the beard
- Improve or correct beard growth
- Increase the density of the mustache
- Contour the mustache
- Increase facial hair
Who is the beard transplant for?
The beard transplant is for all men who have :
- An unsatisfactory implantation of the beard
- An insufficient density of the beard
- A non-existent mustache
What is the procedure?
Before the transplant
- Two medical consultations with your cosmetic surgeon to analyze the implantation of your beard and its density and propose a surgical strategy adapted to your case.
- Stop smoking at least 15 days before and 15 days after the transplant
Course of the intervention
We remove the grafts one by one by follicular extraction technique (FUE) without scarring at the back of the head in the occipital crown area. The hair in this area is genetically programmed never to fall out.
The surgeon then proceeds to carefully implant the grafts in the areas where there is insufficient hair.
The procedure is light and is performed under local anesthesia. The effect obtained by a beard micrograft is natural and leaves no scar.
After the beard transplant, there is swelling and bruising for about ten days. The pain is moderate.
The final results are visible six to nine months after the operation because of the time needed for the graft to take hold and for the area to be stimulated by shaving.

The cost of the beard transplant depends on the complexity of your case and the number of grafts.
Are beard implants permanent?
A beard transplant is the most permanent solution available to increase beard density. The fine hairs transplanted to the recipient beard area will not grow back thick like normal facial hair at first. After several months of shaving, the thickness of the hair will increase to approach the appearance of a natural beard.
Do beard transplants look natural?
Beard transplants look completely natural after the recovery period. The first few months, the hair will be fine, but after the stimulation of shaving, it will become denser and grow more rapidly. The final result can be appreciated after about six months.
When can I start shaving again after the beard transplant?
4 weeks after the beard transplant, you can start trimming the beard but not less than 3 mm. It is important that the trimmer has a protective shoe. It is important that you do not shave with a razor directly on the skin before the end of the 6 months. After 6 months, you can shave with a razor without risking injury to the transplanted hair follicles.
What is the use of mesotherapy for beard transplantation?
Mesotherapy can improve the results of beard transplantation:
- First of all, before the operation, because mesotherapy allows to improve the vascularization and the quality of the skin of the area receiving the beard
- Then during the procedure by micro injections of vitamins
- After the procedure, you will be offered a protocol of three mesotherapy sessions to stimulate hair growth.
