How does a facial 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 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 moustache.
Before your beard transplant, we make sure that we note all the regions with reduced follicles to ensure we implant the appropriate amount.

Beard transplants are permanent and should last you for the entirety of your lifetime given that you give your face that needed TLC.
Beard transplants are surgical procedures and are performed under local anaesthetic to help minimize any sensations of pain or discomfort. However, once the local anaesthetic wears off, you may feel some pain. Taking pain killers before and after your procedure helps alleviate some of this pain.
