How Do Beard Transplants Work?

At FUE Clinics In Edinburgh we offer two types of beard transplants these include Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). Both of these facial hair transplants involve the same technique as any other hair transplant procedure and require surgeons to remove hair from a donor area. The most common procedure is the FUE beard transplant, individual hairs are grafted one by one from the donor region and harvest over a larger area. Only small, white circular scars are left behind. The surgeon is usually able to harvest one of every five follicles, but results vary with our physicians and the quality of the procedure. A FUT transplant involves taking a small strip of tissue from the donor area with a microscopic dissection process. The surgeon then closes the wound edge, leaving only a single, fine scar behind. There are three steps to the beard transplant procedure; hair preparation, hair extraction, and hair placement.

Hair Preparation
The donor area is prepared by washing and shaving an area from the side or back of the head normally ear to ear. A local anaesthetic is applied to reduce discomfort whilst the beard transplant surgeon uses an electronic punch to extract the individual hair grafts. An antiseptic dressing is then applied to the donor area which can be removed the following day.
Hair Extraction
The grafts are extracted using a 0.9mm electronic punch and categorised into grafts containing one, two or three hairs. Once selected by FUE Clinic’s surgeon, the hairs are then prepared for transplantation to the new hairline area. The hair extraction process typically takes between 1 and 3 hours depending on the number of grafts to be extracted.
Hair Placement
The new boundary for your beard is marked before small incisions are made shortly before the graft commences. The hair grafts are placed evenly into the small openings to match your existing beard pattern, angle and desired density. A typical beard placement procedure can take between 1 to 3 hours; your beard transplant results will be instantly noticeable.

Beard Transplant Aftercare

There are some small beard transplant side effects when undergoing beard transplant surgery but nothing serious. Overall there are no real beard transplant risks, some side effects may include:
  • Mild bruising
  • Swelling
  • Sensitivity at the donor and recipient sites
  • Ingrown hair
  • Redness
It isn’t unusual for small crusts to form around the newly transplanted hairs. If the crusting lasts longer than a week, you may want to contact your surgeon. Many surgeons advise not washing your face until the crusts have fallen off. The doctor may prescribe you an antibiotic that prevents infection in the donor area. You might also get an antibiotic ointment to apply. Beard transplant recovery is typically problem-free with little or no pain. Visible signs of the procedure usually subside within a week, and you can typically start shaving again a week to 10 days after the transplant. Don’t be concerned if your new beard begins to fall out after two or three weeks, as it’s a natural part of the process, and by three months your beard should have all grown back. A beard transplant recovery time usually is fairly quick, and visible signs of the procedure tend to subside within a week, and you can start shaving again after around 10 days.
