The rise in popularity of beard transplants

Hair transplants have been popular for many years now, creating incredible results in individuals who otherwise would have been left to face the consequences of widespread hair loss. But the technology has now become more diverse and instead of just transplanting the hairs on the scalp, there’s a growing demand for a different type of surgery: beard transplants. Although a lesser problem than scalp hair loss, more and more men are starting to recognise that they don’t have to put up with a disappointing beard growth and can instead have a transplant. We take a closer look at beard transplants, including what they are and their rise in popularity.

FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE) Hair Transplants

Hair transplants have come a long way since they first burst onto the market, and the results are now extremely natural-looking, without the “teabag” perforation marks which blighted the earliest procedures. Hair loss affects a large proportion of men and women in the UK, and transplants can now be carried out on a range of different sites including the top of the head, the eyebrows and facial hair too. The procedure is very discreet and the resulting appearance looks so natural that no-one will be able to tell that you’ve had a transplant, other than by your thicker and fuller looking hair! Modern hair transplants can be carried out via a couple of different procedures but FUE is one of the most revolutionary, offering excellent results. Here are some of the most common FAQs about Follicular Unit Excision (FUE).
