Everything You Need to Know About Beard Transplants

Growing a full beard is one of the most appealing and game-changing adjustments you can make to your look, but not everyone has the opportunity. In fact, it’s been reported that almost half of all men deal with uneven & patchy facial hair. A painless beard transplant can be the perfect fix. For a long time, people thought this was an unchangeable constant, and people with problematic beards & mustaches assumed there was no way to fix things. However, modern hair restoration technology has given people a new, clear path to full & even facial hair.

You might already be familiar with the many ways a hair transplant can change someone’s life, but those benefits aren’t only reserved for those with scalp-related issues. Utilizing the same methods that would be used for a standard FUE or FUT procedure, a qualified hair restoration surgeon like Dr. Yazdan can give your beard the consistent & natural look you’ve always wanted.

During the procedure, similar to the typical transplant, the surgeon will obtain the necessary hairs from your donor area (usually the posterior scalp) & create punches in the beard area to accept them. As with any professional procedure like this, a very small punch is used in this process. Dr. Yazdan, for example, uses one with a 0.7mm diameter, which allows for a dense & even grouping of hairs. Once this is done, the surgeon will then carefully place the follicles into their new homes, and voila! The procedure is completely painless when done correctly, and the transplant area will start looking better within an hour of completion.

We mentioned earlier that a consistent & natural look comes under the guidance of a qualified surgeon, and you shouldn’t take those words lightly. We understand that hair restoration is pricey, and cheaper options can certainly be tempting. However, If you allow someone without the proper qualifications & experience to perform the transplant, you’re bound to get left with unnatural results at best, and you can expect an infection or inflammation if you’re not so lucky. Instead of saving money on the first procedure & getting it fixed later, make sure you get it done by someone certified to complete the task.

That’s why Dr. Yazdan performs every beard transplant procedure at Modena Hair Institute’s Newport, Las Vegas & Beverly Hills locations. He’s a licensed physician with years of experience performing FUE & FUT transplants, along with a wide range of other procedures, and he’s even been featured on shows like Dr. Phill & The Doctors to discuss his work.

Hair transplants aren’t just for scalps – are you a candidate for a beard transplant?

It’s true what they say – we often want what we don’t have. Luckily, medical advancements have made it easy for us to get the bodies and traits we desire.
Hair transplants aren’t just for scalps anymore. We can use the same techniques done in traditional hair transplant surgeries to create the beard you’ve always wanted. FUE and Strip techniques can be used to extract hair follicles from the donor area. These follicles are then transplanted onto the face in the desired shape to create a nice, full, natural beard. The process is as simple and straight forward as a hair transplant procedure. And the healing time is similar as well.
Beard transplants aren’t just for those who are unable to grow a beard naturally. This procedure is a great and effective solution for those suffering from patchiness and thinning of the beard.
Here at Modena, we have given hundreds of men the beard they always wanted. If you’re interested in finding out if you’re a candidate for this revolutionary advancement in hair transplants, give us a call for consultation.

Hair Transplant Repair with Beard & Chest Hair

He had multiple hair transplant procedures prior, that left him with major scarring on his scalp from another physician. He had no donor zone hair left on the sides and back of his scalp.  The after photo (right) is 1 year after he underwent 1 FUE procedure by Dr. Yazdan utilizing Beard & Chest hair to transplant 1884 FUE hair grafts to the scalp.  The chest hairs were used in the hairline to mask the previous “plug” grafts giving a softer appearance and the beard hair was mixed in for better density.
