A beard transplant is a cosmetic procedure performed to correct beard irregularities. A full beard or shadow is a desire of many men for a variety of reasons, and a patchy, thin or uneven beard can be a frustration and concern as well. Dr. Glenn Charles performs beard transplants for patients seeking to make their beards look full and even.
The procedure can be done using either: Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). In both options, hair is removed form an area of healthy hair growth, usually the back of the head, and then transplanted to the beard.Generally, the process takes about 4-6 hours to complete.
The FUT Beard Transplant
A Follicular Unit Transplantation beard transplant involves Dr. Charles removing a small strip of tissue from the hair-growing area at the back of the head (donor area). The strip is then placed under high-powered microscopes and carefully divided into several tiny grafts. For beard transplants the grafts will contain 1 or 2 hairs.
These tiny follicular unit grafts are stored in chilled storage rotation until they are transplanted. The incisions are made in very specific angles and directions depending on where on the face they are being made. The grafts are then placed into the incisions one at a time.

The FUE Beard Transplant
A Follicular Unit Extraction beard transplant involves Dr. Charles harvesting in tact follicular units from the donor site, The FUE procedure has minimal post-operative discomfort and donor area heals a little faster than the FUT transplant.
The donor area is shaved, and then follicles are removed individually with a surgical device that uses a 0.8mm-to-1mm punch. Follicular units are transplanted into recipient sites one at a time.
Which Option Is Right for Me?
Both FUT and FUE are proven beard transplant techniques and offer excellent results. Each method offers its own unique benefits.
Advantages of FUE:
- No linear scaring
- Faster recovery in donor area
- Zero to negligible pain experienced in donor area post operatively
Advantages of FUT:
- More hair grafted in less time
- Sometimes a better option for people who need grafting in large or multiple areas of their beard, sideburns, or mustache
- lower cost
- Do not need to shave donor area to perform procedure
The best beard restoration method for you will depend on your particular situation and other factors. Dr. Charles will help you choose a beard transplant technique during your consultation.
I couldn’t be more thrilled…
It’s now been about 6 months since my hair transplants surgery. I couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. The entire experience has exceeded my expectations in every aspect. Your staff is both courteous and professional. The surgery itself was painless and there was little or no discomfort during the recovery phase. I was able to return to work the very next day! In short, it has been the single best thing I have done for myself. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner. I eagerly look forward to my next session.

After Your Beard Transplant
The recovery process after a beard transplant is different for each patient based on the technique chosen. Generally, patients can return to their regular activities within 7-10 days. Minor swelling, ichiness, and crusting in the region may be present for a time.
It is important to remember that it is normal for te initially implanted hair to fall out after two to three weeks. The newly transplanted follicles will leaad to new hair growth naturally and will continue to follow a normal growth cycle.
How Much Does a Beard Transplant Cost?
The cost of a beard transplant procedure varies based on numerous factors. The technique employed, and the number of follicular units being transplanted both play a role in determining the final price
