FAQS: Facial Hair Transplants
The cost of facial hair transplants depends on the amount of hair needed for transfer. We understand patients need accurate pricing information to plan for their procedure and will provide a detailed, customized quote for beard transplant cost during your consultation. Pricing for facial hair transplants is comparable to the cost of hair restoration procedures like FUE and FUT.
Beard hair transplants look very natural, and are virtually undistinguishable from naturally grown facial hair. As a triple board-certified plastic surgeon and hair restoration superspecialist, Dr. Chaffoo has an eye for aesthetics and takes pride in creating balanced results. If you would like to see real-life patient examples of facial hair transplantation, ask to see our beard transplant before-and-after photos.
Using advanced hair restoration techniques like FUE, recovery after facial hair transplantation will have slight impacts on your life and work schedule. Many types of facial hair restoration are minimally invasive and allow patients to quickly return to work, exercise, and other daily activities. Most patients take one to two weeks off from work after their procedure. Our team will teach you how to care for your beard implants so you can recover quickly and minimize potential complications.
Facial hair transplants are a long-lasting solution to thin or missing facial hair. Like hair transplants on the scalp, beard implants can provide permanent results. Dr. Chaffoo harvests his implants from the back of the scalp, an area that is highly resistant to loss.
Hair and beard transplants retain the characteristics from the donor area. If you receive beard or eyebrow implants from Dr. Chaffoo, these transferred hairs will continue to grow at a rate like the hair on the back of your head. You can trim your beard as usual to maintain a consistent and natural look. For facial hair transplants on the eyebrows or eyelashes, you may need occasional trimming, as the transferred hair may have a longer terminal length than your natural lashes or brows.
Beard implants work well for many patients who desire additional thickness for their facial hair. If you’re considering the procedure, we encourage you to reach out to California Hair MD for a consultation. One of our board-certified physicians will personally perform your consultation and provide valuable information for deciding if hair transplantation is right for you.
Scarring is a common concern for many patients considering beard implants. Whether you choose FUE or FUT for your procedure, scarring will not be prominent on the face or in the beard area. Dr. Chaffoo uses tiny incisions to place each implant, which do not typically create a noticeable scar. Scarring in the donor area will depend on the technique used for removing and extracting the beard implants. If Dr. Chaffoo uses the FUT or linear strip method for extraction, there will be a scar across the back of the head. Your hair will hide the scarring, but it will be potentially visible with shorter hairstyles. FUE does not leave a visible scar.
