BENEFITS OF BEARD AND MOUSTACHE TRANSPLANT PROCEDURE
There are a number of benefits to receiving a hair transplant, whether that may be a beard transplant, moustache transplant, or simply a hair transplant on the scalp. The most profound benefits of a moustache and beard transplant are:
- Permanent, yet flexible – Beard transplants use your own hair grafted from the donor area to construct the beard of your dreams. Once recovery is complete, you will be able to enjoy your new natural beard. Although the results are permanent, you can alter the shape and style of your beard to whatever you like.
- Little to no scarring – The beard transplant performed by Dr Mehta in Mumbai, India, is minimally invasive. The scars produced will often diminish entirely on both the recipient and donor sites.
- No downtime – Dr Mehta performs a moustache and beard transplant using minimally invasive Sapphire and BIO-FUE techniques to ensure that there is minimal downtime and recovery.
- Boost your confidence – A beard hair transplant can not only fill out the voids of hairless patches but can enhance your confidence and considerably boost your self-esteem.
A moustache or beard transplant involves moving hair follicles from one area (known as the donor area) to the face. There are a number of ways that a beard transplant in Mumbai can be performed. However, the choice of technique will ultimately depend on your hair’s characteristics and Dr Mehta’s preference.
The types of beard transplant in Mumbai are:
FUT – The FUT hair transplant is done to treat male pattern baldness on both the scalp and the face. During this cosmetic surgery, Dr Mehta will precisely excise strips of donor hair follicles from your donor area and place them into a sterile solution. Once your treatment area is prepped, he will carefully implant each individual follicle.
FUE – Dr Mehta uses a variety of FUE hair transplant procedures including the sapphire FUE (through the use of a sterile sapphire blade), BIO-FUE (combining the use of growth factors to strengthen your hair), and the standard FUE procedure. An FUE beard hair transplant involves the extraction of individual follicles from the donor site and directly implanting them in the face. Eventually, these will grow into immaculate beard hair for you to enjoy.
HOW DOES A BEARD AND MOUSTACHE HAIR TRANSPLANT WORK?
The most common hair transplant procedure used for alopecia areata is the FUE method. Dr Malay Mehta will utilize special sapphire blades to create tiny incisions to remove follicles from your donor area to your beard and moustache.
However, depending on your pattern of hair loss, Dr Mehta may opt for the FUT method which involves grafting an entire strip of follicles from your donor area to be implanted into your beard. This usually results in a fuller look, but the benefits and advantages for each differ from person to person.
Let’s take a look at a simple step-by-step process:
Regardless if you have opted for the FUE or FUT method, Dr Malay Mehta will use special sapphire blades to harvest the hair follicles following the use of a local anaesthetic to minimize pain.
Once all the desired follicles have been harvested, Dr Mehta will implant the follicles into the area of your face in need of hair. The implants will be placed in a specific manner to ensure your new beard grows in an aesthetically pleasing way.
Like any other invasive procedure that required incisions, you will need to recover for a few days after your procedure. Your new beard hairs may fall out within 2-3 weeks, but this is completely normal as it allows for new hair to regrow.
Moustache and beard transplants can be life-changing procedures. You can come into our clinic lacking self-esteem and walk out with a newfound sense of confidence, ready to tackle any problem that may lay ahead of you.
Dr Mehta is specialized to carry out hair transplants on all aspects of your face, and so can use either the sapphire FUE or FUT method to transplant your facial hair.

Beard transplants are permanent and should last you for the entirety of your lifetime given that you give your face that needed TLC.

No. By using sapphire technology, Dr Mehta’s work guarantees little to no scarring after your procedure.
