Beard Transplant Glasgow Scotland

If you are looking for a minimally invasive and permanent beard transplant in Scotland, then book your consultation at our clinic in Glasgow, find out the cost and experience the benefits of fuller facial hair.

You may come from a long line of men that didn’t have much facial hair. Or perhaps you have suffered through some sort of accident and the scars have prevented facial hair growth up until now.  In any case, whatever your reason, we are here to help you get a beard transplant in Glasgow.

Beard restoration is a safe cosmetic procedure that can effectively treat an absent, thin or patchy beard. It is no wonder our patients across Scotland increasingly request a beard transplant to improve their appearance and highlight their masculine features with natural results.

Getting a beard transplant in Scotland
has never been easier.

Based on the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) statistics, facial implants (beard and moustache) increased 196% worldwide from 2012 to 2014 and 121% from 2014 to 2019. While all components of a beard are essential, the highest-ranked features included strong goatee and cheek beards.

The main reasons for which patients turn to beard restoration are:

  • Congenital beard atrichia and hypotrichosis, conditions where there is the complete or partial congenital absence of beard hair due to aplasia of the hair follicle in the beard.
  • Cicatricial alopecia due to burns, injuries, folliculitis, acne sequelae, cleft lip or surgeries.
  • Masculinization of transgender patients

During your consultation in our office, you will be able to discuss with Dr Bonaros the type of beard you are looking for, its desired density and the cost of your beard restoration in our clinic in Glasgow.

How many grafts are needed for a successful beard restoration?

The exact graft number for your beard transplant will be determined during your consultation based on the following factors:

  • The exact design 
  • The size of the area
  • The desired density
  • The number of the pre-existing beard hair 
  • The calibre of the donor hair.

The graft counts for an effective beard transplant can range from 300 grafts for a small patch to 3000 grafts for a full, dense beard.

We perform every procedure with precision, artistry, and extraordinary skill.

The surgery for beard transplant in our clinic in Glasgow can last between two and seven hours, depending on the extent of the area that needs filling in.

The basic principles of hair transplantation are the same. Grafts are harvested from the donor area in the same way as in a routine hair transplant with our advanced FUE technique. We use tiny punches with a diameter of 0.7 mm for the extraction to minimise trauma and ensure only suitable single and double hair follicles are harvested. For minor cases requiring less than 300 grafts, we can use scalp hair or beard follicles from the area under the chin. For the rest of the cases, we harvest suitable hair follicles from the back and sides of the head.

The beard transplant procedure is completed with Direct Hair Implantation

We directly implant the follicles in the recipient area using hair implanter pens. No premade incisions are made on your face. Common areas on the face that are often filled in with more hair follicles are:

  • Sideburns
  • Cheeks
  • Mustache area
  • Chin. Great attention is given to the restoration of the lateral pillars (Figure 1) that connect the moustache to the chin, forming the “goatee.”

The healing after the beard transplant is rapid and you will be able to start shaving your face once again in a couple of  weeks. Then you simply sit back, plan your hip new beard style, and wait about three months for the new facial hair to grow.

How much does a beard transplant cost in Glasgow?

Your beard restoration cost in Glasgow will depend mainly on the number of grafts you need to achieve your goals. One full-day procedure with 2000 grafts or more can cost anything between £3000 and £6000. More extensive procedures requiring 3000-4000 grafts are usually carried out over two days and cost between £8000 and £10.000.

Beard transplant results

Although you may see results almost immediately, it is normal for the initially transplanted hairs to fall out in preparation for regrowth. Over the next few months, new hair will grow gradually, and final results will be visible about a year after your procedure. This procedure provides patients with thicker, fuller, and permanent facial hair.
