How does the Moustache&Beard Transplant procedure works?
The procedure, as used for hair transplants, is also utilised in Beard, Moustache, Goatee and Sideburn Hair Transplants. This method is a minimally invasive procedure used to restore hair density on different areas of the face.
The procedure can take between three and nine hours depending on the area treated and amount of hair required. For example, a goatee may require up to 1,500 hairs, while a full beard may need up to 4,000 hairs.
During the procedure the Surgeon locates the stable zone area at the side or back of the head. This is used as the donor area for the beard, moustache or sideburns. Finer hair is typically needed for a Moustache & Beard Transplant where the donor area is located at the sides of the head. If the patient is balding or is completely bald it is also possible to use body hair such as the chest area for the donor area.
