Beard to Scalp Hair Transplant

Beard to Scalp Hair Transplant

Beard to scalp hair transplant is a hair restoration solution for patients without much donor hair on the back of their scalp as is often seen in advanced stages of hair loss. Beard hair is usually thicker so it provides more volume when transplanted to the scalp. The beard donor hair is individually harvested from the beard and then inserted into the incisions. The beard hair grafts are mostly singles, but they are coarse and usually kinkier than scalp hair. Over two to three thousand donor hair grafts can be harvested in men who have average facial hair density.

Candidates for beard to scalp hair transplant include men with a sufficient amount of beard hair that can be transferred to the scalp. In addition, men with scalp hair supply and demand mismatch can benefit from the extra hair that can be utilized for FUE hair transplant from the beard. A bonus effect of this procedure is when candidates do not like shaving their beard very often, removing the facial hair will lessen the time they spend shaving each day.

The final cost for beard to scalp hair transplant depends on a number of factors including the total number of grafts used by the surgeon and the doctor fee per graft. In general, the cost is anywhere from $5000-$20,000 for each procedure.

The results of beard to scalp hair transplant are permanent and last a lifetime. The transplanted hair will take root in the scalp and grow like any other hair on the scalp. The final results will be visible after 8 to 12 months and will appear natural to the point that the average person will not be able to distinguish it from a scalp to scalp hair transplant.
