About Beard Hair Transplant Surgery
Almost 50% of men find it very hard to grow a full beard or sideburns. This can be because of uneven growth and patchy areas where the density simply is lacking.
One potential solution to this problem can be beard transplant surgery. A simple solution that allows us to move so thick healthy hair from the back of the scalp into the bald patches, creating a full healthy beard or even a well-shaped goatee.
A patchy an uneven beard can be immediately noticeable and is very hard to disguise. This inevitably leads to beard looking messy and untidy even with the smartest of individuals.
There are a number of reasons that it may be considered advantageous to grow a beard; but transplanting facial hair makes it possible to grow and maintain sideburns, a beard or even a mustache, giving a very masculine appearance.
Whilst facial hair fashions often change, the wish for many men to develop a beard or sideburns will always exist. However, for some men, even those who take good care of their appearance and consume a healthy diet, this can be an issue. This could be down to genetic hair growth patterns, or even as a result of damage.
Beard restoration surgery can completely alter the appearance of your face, giving it a more contoured line and a fuller, more neatly shaved look.

Types of Hair Transplant Surgery - FUT and FUE
There are 2 main methods of hair transplant surgery, both being very similar in that hair is taken from a donor area and placed into the thinning or bald areas of the face and beard. The main difference between the 2 types of surgery is the way that the hair is taken (or 'harvested') from the donor area.
FUT: Follicular Unit Transplantation
This is the most common and most economical hair transplant procedure that we offer. FUT Hair transplantation involves the removal of a strip of hair follicles from the back of the head, which is then dissected and follicles grafted onto the recipient areas in the jaw line, cheeks and chin.
FUE: Follicular Unit Extraction
This method is similar to the FUT method above but instead of taking a strip of hair from the back of the head, the follicles are harvested individually. With FUE, there is reduced scarring in the donor area and discomfort is reduced, although hair density in the donor area can be reduced and not all people are suitable.
