What is a beard hair transplant?

A beard transplant is a specialised hair restoration procedure that aims to improve the appearance of patchy or thinning facial hair. Our beard hair transplants use the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant process, which involves the careful harvesting of individual hair follicles from a healthy donor area, typically the back of the scalp where hair is more resistant to balding, to areas where hair growth is needed.

Along with beard restoration, facial hair transplants can also help to promote hair growth for moustaches, sideburns, or eyebrows.

Thanks to the latest developments and techniques involved with FUE transplant procedures, the surgeries are minimally invasive and can provide lasting, natural-looking results. This makes our FUE beard transplants a discreet and effective solution for enhancing facial hair.

At KSL Clinic, our GMC-registered surgeons have years of experience providing the highest level of care and delivering successful results. We pride ourselves in offering excellent and personalised care for each of our patients to help them achieve the best possible results when it comes to achieving their facial hair goals.

How does a beard transplant work?

At KSL Clinic, we use the FUE transplant method to deliver outstanding results for our patients. Our highly qualified surgeons use only the best industry tools, and each FUE beard transplant procedure is performed under a microscope for maximum precision.

We specialise in walk-in walk-out procedures, which means that after your initial consultation and once you’ve booked in for your treatment, your hair transplant surgery is completed in less than a day. The exact length of a beard transplant varies depending on the size of the area that’s being treated and the hair that’s required.

Initial Consultation

The first step for every KSL Clinic patient is to visit us for a thorough consultation, where we learn your goals, expectations, and hair loss history and determine the best approach for a beard transplant. Our surgeon will assess your transplant and donor areas, carefully considering your facial hair’s natural growth pattern and density.


Local anaesthesia application

Before the procedure, we’ll administer a local anaesthetic to provide maximum comfort throughout the surgery. This step is essential for a pain-free experience.


Follicle extraction

Our surgeons extract individual hair follicles from the donor area using a specialised Micro Punch tool that punches a minuscule circle around each follicle. This tool allows for precise removal of each graft, minimising tissue damage and scarring. The donor area for beard transplants is usually the back or sides of the head, as the hair is finer and better suited for facial hair transplantation.


Follicle sorting

Once extracted, each follicular unit is examined and sorted. This meticulous process ensures that each graft is placed strategically according to its characteristics, such as the number of hairs in each follicle and its density.


Graft transplantation

The prepared grafts are then individually implanted in the designated beard area. Our surgeons pay close attention to the direction and angle of natural hair growth to ensure the transplanted follicles blend seamlessly with existing facial hair.


Post-procedure care

Following the transplant, the treated area is bandaged to protect the new grafts and aid in the healing process. Our team provides comprehensive post-operative care instructions to ensure a smooth recovery and the best possible results.


What are the benefits of a beard transplant?

At KSL Clinic, we believe that understanding the benefits of an FUE transplant is crucial for making an informed decision about your hair restoration journey.

Here are some of the key advantages of choosing FUE at KSL Clinic:

Achieve the beard shape and fullness you’re looking for

A beard transplant can help to fill in sparse areas or uneven growth to create a fuller, more defined beard. Our surgeons work with you to achieve the perfect results that you’re looking for.

Minimally invasive

Beard transplants at KSL Clinic are minimally invasive as our surgeons use specialist tools to extract and implant hair follicles without the need for large incisions or stitches.

Virtually invisible scar

The technique used for follicle extraction leaves tiny marks that are almost invisible to the naked eye. These small incisions heal quickly and are hidden within the natural hair growth, so evidence of the procedure is virtually invisible to the naked eye.

Quick recovery

As the scratches used to remove the follicles are so small – less than 1 mm in diameter – they typically heal within a few days. This means that patients require minimal downtime before going back to work or continuing with life as usual.

Natural-looking results

Our skilled surgeons carefully replicate the natural growth pattern of your facial hair, ensuring that the transplanted follicles blend seamlessly with your existing hair.

Long-lasting results

You can enjoy long-lasting and permanent results following your FUE beard transplant. While some of your grafts may shed in the weeks after your procedure, this is expected, and you will start to see new hair growth in the following months.

Beard Transplant FAQs

How do I know if I'm suitable for a FUE beard transplant?

FUE beard transplants are different for every patient, and their suitability varies based on several factors, such as:

  • The patient’s facial hair density – A higher density of hair follicles around the donor area can make patients more suitable for a facial hair transplant as they will have more follicles that can be transplanted.
  • The patient’s scalp flexibility – Scalp flexibility, or scalp laxity, refers to the tightness of the scalp. It can be easier to transplant follicles from people with a high scalp flexibility than those with a tight scalp.
  • The patient’s hair loss – Patients suffering from minor to moderate hair loss may see stronger results than those with more severe hair loss.
  • The patient’s expectations – It’s important to remember that as life-changing as hair transplants can be, they aren’t always possible for everyone. It’s crucial to have realistic expectations of results, as this can help you determine whether it’s the right choice.

How long does a beard transplant take to grow?

After a beard transplant, you will see the initial growth of new hairs around three months after your procedure. You should see stronger growth and noticeable density at around six months, with full results expected around the 9-month mark.

How long does a beard transplant last?

A beard transplant is a permanent solution, and you should be able to enjoy your results for the long term. Once some of your initial grafts shed immediately following your procedure, the transplanted hair follicles should continue to grow over your lifetime. However, individual results can vary based on genetics and overall health.

How many grafts are needed for a beard transplant?

The number of grafts required for a beard transplant depends on the look you’re after and the size of the area to be covered. A rough estimate will be determined during your consultation.

How long does a beard transplant take to heal?

As the scratches used to extract the follicles are extremely small, the donor area should heal quickly, and our patients can complete their surgery within one day and leave following the procedure.

The donor and implant areas will require a few weeks to heal completely and reduce residual swelling, but the exact downtime will vary from person to person. However, we find that most of our patients can return to work within around a week of having their procedure.

Are there any risks with beard transplants?

As with any surgical procedure, there may be some side effects, such as:

  • Redness
  • Bleeding
  • Swelling
  • Tightness

These symptoms should subside within a week of your beard hair transplant, however, every procedure is different. To help you recover, we offer aftercare treatments and regular check-ups to ensure there are no problems following your procedure.

If you’re concerned about anything, our team of experts are more than happy to answer any questions and provide you with more information.

Will a beard transplant leave scars?

We use the FUE hair transplant method for our beard and facial hair implants as it’s minimally invasive and creates the least amount of scarring.

The scratches made when extracting the hair follicles are less than 1 mm in diameter, meaning that any scars are generally undetectable without a microscope. They are also usually hidden within the natural hair growth, making them virtually undetectable.
