The beard is back in fashion!

Transplanted beard after 10 days

The male beard has already experienced many eras and styles. We remember long ago times and images of men with twirled upper lip beards. There were also times when a long full beard was absolutely fashionable. Not so long ago, beards were no longer popular for a while, whereas today the beard is back in fashion, as relevant online magazines know to report – for example at or

Would you like to change your beard or are you naturally endowed with rather little beard growth? A beard transplant (beard transplant) can offer help.

There are several possible causes that lead to an insufficient beard. Genetic predispositions, hormonal reasons, scarring on which no more hair grows and some other causes. A beard hair transplant can “fill in” the beard so that an overall aesthetically valuable appearance is created. This provides many men with an affirmation of their masculine features and often contributes to a significant improvement in self-esteem. A beard can convey sovereignty, power and strength and thus a very special charisma.

Beard hair transplantation primarily makes use of hair from the normal donor area (hair wreath), just as is the case with hair transplantation. If there is not enough donor hair available in this area, other body hair is used by means of the FUE technique. Here (similar to the BHT body hair transplantation) hairs from the regions of the chest, back, legs come into question. The harvested donor hairs are then transplanted into the hairless areas of the face/cheeks, upper lip and chin/neck.

It can happen that the transplanted hairs will go out again within the first 4 weeks, similar to a hair transplant in the head area. However, it has been observed that hair in the beard region often grows many times faster than in the head region.

It is also possible to “transplant” the beard hair using the FUE method. For example, beard hairs are removed from the chin/neck area and then reinserted in the desired hairless areas. In terms of growth, this option is even a very promising alternative, because it has been shown that these hairs often continue to grow immediately after the “replanting”.

However, despite all the advanced methods and experience, beard hair transplants are still quite unexplored. Therefore, in the worst case scenario, it should be taken into account that – similar to a scalp hair transplant – there may initially be a loss of hair and that one can only enjoy a complete beard after 12 months at the latest.
