Beard Shapes and Sizes
7 Regions: Cheek Beard, Mustache, Forebeard, Side Beard, Jaw Beard, Under Beard and Neck Hair Usually, when I am transplanting the beard, I will use advanced harvest techniques at 3000 RPM with a 19G punch using the FUE ARTAS robot and taking hair from back of the head. If I am taking hair from under the angle of the mandible I like to use a 1.0MM or 0.9MM sharp punch. Most patients will need around 32 weeks for the beard to become fully developed from the transplant procedure. It usually takes 2 beard transplants to get a desired result however we occasionally will perform up to 4 transplants to achieve the amount of thickening that patients will want. Average Cost ranges from about $5000. Average number of Hairs needed to transplant varies dramatically but it is very common to go over 4,000 total hairs over 2,200 to 2,500 grafts.

8 Frequently Asked Questions
Typical Men Having The Procedure Done
Typical patients include men who have struggled since adolescence to grow a beard, men with facial scarring, those filling in a few gaps or the ones interested in doing a complete beard construction. No matter the situation the look men are going for is definitely to have a bit of facial hair.
Like any scalp hair transplant, the procedure is practically painless. Most of the time, it is conducted using the FUE hair transplant technique. At The Paragon Plastic Surgery and Med Spa we are one of two in Texas that offer the ARTAS System. ARTAS is the first Hair Transplant Robot to improve the most challenging aspects of Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). It offers numerous beneficial features, including an image-guided robotic arm, special imaging technologies, small dermal punches and a computer interface. The ARTAS System is capable of identifying and harvesting individual follicular units to implement the FUE technique.
Where The Donor Hair Comes From
The hair for beard transplants typically is taken from the back of the patients head and then planted through micro-incisions on the facial region desired. The hair from the back of the head most closely resembles the hair grown around the chin. In cases of those with a balding head, your surgeon may extract donor hair from body hair.
This transplant procedure takes about 2-7 hours to complete, depending on the area covered and the beard density you are looking for. Free images.com/Toni Mihailov.
Facial Hair After Procedure
Once transplanted, the beard hair takes root gradually. The transplanted hairs fall out after two weeks but the roots stay and begin to grow new hair within several months. Put your faith in science. Once it’s fully healed, the new facial hair can be treated just like real hair because that’s just what it is – real hair.
Shaving After Procedure
Do not shave the transplanted hair for the first couple weeks after the surgery. After this short phase, you can decide if you want more of a scuffy “just rolled out of bed look” or if you want to shave and have a silky smooth baby face. Free images.com/Paul Preacher.
In most cases plan on having 2 to 3 days of social down time. So, pull out the video games, the Netflix binge schedule and last but not least the food and enjoy your down time while knowing soon enough you’ll have the facial hair you’ve always wanted.
A very important feature and benefit of any type of hair transplant is that it gives permanent results. You won’t have to worry about losing your new facial hair or having to be careful with your new hair after you’re totally healed from the transplant. Once the hair takes root it really is your very own facial hair!
Make it a fun experience! Patients are encouraged to bring in pictures of their favorite celebrities beard/facial hair that they are wanting to mirror. This gives the surgeon a great idea of what the patient envisions for himself.
