If you’re reading this, it is because you want to know more about whether it is really worth getting a beard transplant. To answer this question, beard transplant is an effective, minimally invasive, painless treatment that’s safe and creates a natural beard appearance. The beard implant process involves harvesting of healthy hair follicles from the back of the head and transplanting them into the beard area. Like FUE hair transplant on the head, Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is the commonly used technique.
It uses hair from your own body, chosen from a “donor area” to be transplanted to the beard area suffering from hair thinning or uneven spots. Because hair follicles are harvested from the back of your head, it’s important that you have healthy hair follicles in this area.
The first step will be to shave the area on your head that’s being harvested for a clearer view of the hair follicles. The strands are then plucked out one by one, before being reinserted into the cheeks, chin or neck to slowly cover up the spots lacking hair. Your new beard will be shaped the way you and your doctor agreed on prior to the procedure.
Although the process can be lengthy, most individuals can complete follicular unit extraction in a single session. However, this depends on your specific hair condition and the desired density of the transplanted hair. Your doctor will consult and discuss options and outcomes with you before going ahead with the process.
If you wish to undergo an FUE beard transplant, it is crucial to understand the intricate procedure.
The results are permanent and look completely natural because it uses your own hair. Although some of the transplanted hair follicles will not last, over 90% will be retained. This technique of facial hair grower is more than enough to ensure that your hairline or bald spots will be completely covered, restoring your self-confidence and image to the way it was before!
Other benefits of the FUE technique include:
The healthiest and strongest hair follicles will be selected for harvesting and transplant for the results to feel and look natural.
The FUE method harvests and transplants hairs in a random fashion that leave NO linear scar behind on the scalp or the area where the follicles were extracted. This gives hair a more natural appearance without having to worry about a visible scar.
The FUE procedure uses local anesthesia to ensure minimal discomfort during the procedure.
With no scalpel or stitches used in the treatment, the recovery process after an FUE transplant is quick, with many people getting back to their daily activities within a couple of days. The procedure itself only takes about 8 hours.
There are many reasons why men go for beard hair transplant, more often than not, it’s to look and feel attractive. With beard transplants, many issues, some aesthetics and some genetics, can be solved. For instance, some baby-faced men want to grow a beard to look more mature, more macho-looking, but they can’t grow a beard due to genetics and alopecia (male pattern baldness).
Similarly, men who suffer from uneven, stubble, blotchy or thinning beard have reported that a beard transplant has increased their self-esteem. Beard transplants can eliminate balding spots in the beard or add more volume for a fuller beard. The perceived maturity and masculinity derived from growing a beard makes men more confident.
Some men, however, go for FUE beard transplant because they lost their beard due to accident, surgery or medical conditions, or to cover scars, birthmarks or other skin imperfections.
After the procedure, the harvested area on your head and the implanted area on your face will need special beard treatment. Both sites should be kept clean. Your doctor will give you home care instructions.
Some activities to avoid for at least the first several days include:
To avoid irritation and infection, it is advisable to not wash your face for a few days or avoid scrubbing after the FUE beard transplant procedure.
Your face and scalp may experience minimal side effects from this treatment such as scalp numbing, some swelling due to the removal of the hair follicle, redness and also a crust that forms on the areas of the scalp where hair was removed or implanted.
The scabs around the holes on the face will usually fall off within a few days. In three to four weeks, the transplanted hairs will fall out of the face, which is expected. After that, the new beard will start growing, and within three to four months, you could be sporting a full beard.
Recovery time is short and there is little risk of complications. Hair in the donor area will grow back in a few days, after which the procedure will seem almost unnoticeable. Most individuals can return to their normal lives and routines without any issue, with many even going back to work the next day.
A bandage is applied to the head section of the patient after the procedure. Pain control is provided with a pain reliever.
Like FUE hair transplant, FUE beard transplant is a delicate and process-oriented procedure to make sure your hair follicles are perfectly implanted into your scalp. With all advanced technology and techniques, FUE beard hair transplant is estimated to cost around RM8 to RM12 per hair in the market.
Premier Clinic price for FUE beard transplant is about RM11.00 per hair. In general, the overall cost will largely depend on certain factors like beard design, the severity of your baldness/ hair loss and the amount of hair being transplanted.

Like FUE hair transplants, a beard transplant is the most permanent restoration treatment to have. The hair follicles are taken from an area of the scalp where the hair is healthy and unlikely to fall out. This means that the hair that is transplanted into the facial area should grow naturally so you will enjoy your beard for life.
When performed by an experienced hair transplant specialist at the best transplant clinic, transplanted beard hair looks completely natural. In fact, you’d never be able to tell it wasn’t natural.
Your transplanted hairs will begin to fall out 15-30 days after the procedure. But this is good news - your new beard follicles are just getting ready for a growth spurt. In about 90 days to 120 days your beard will have completed its growth and most hair follicles will have settled into place.
