Beard Hair Transplant is very similar to the regular hair transplantion for baldness. By FUE or DHI method Beard and Moustache hair grafts are extracted from the “Donor Area”. The procedure is carried out under local anthesia to create a completely natural, growing and permanent facial hair.
The new facial hairs will grow permanently for the rest life and can be shaved, trimmed and styled anyway that you like.

surgeon will inject a local anesthetic into the area of the face where the
implant will be placed. A surgeon then grafts each hair follicle into the skin
of your face to shape a new beard as agreed by you and your doctor before
