What Is A Beard Transplant In Toronto? 

A Facial Hair Transplant is a procedure that involves extracting hair from your scalp’s “preferred zone” and transplanting it to your face to generate, expand, or densify your facial hair look. The donor hairs are extracted at Nova Medical Hair Transplant utilizing a pioneered automated and FUE method, rather than a linear scar generating “strip graft” approach. 

A full beard, mustache, sideburns, and rough stubble are all possibilities for beards that every male ought to have. A typical feminine wish is for thick brows. Genetics may also get in the way, with some men having thin, patchy facial hair or none at all. 

There were formerly limited options that could be done to restore one’s thinning facial hair, but thanks to developments in hair transplantation technology, it’s now feasible. 

It’s a tempting choice for males who wish to: 

  • Have a bigger, fuller beard. 
  • Make specific aspects stand out. 
  • Fill in any gaps in your beard’s growth. 
  • Reshape the beard.
  • Hide unwanted scars.
  • Maintain a well-kept look.

How Many Grafts Do You Need for Beard Transplants?

Beard treatment may be used on places with no hair or areas where hair growth is sparse and fullness is needed. The goatee and moustache are the most typical regions for this technique, although it may also be done on beards, sideburns, and cheeks. Acne scars and other forms of scars may be hidden with facial hair transplants. The number of grafts needed varies, however the following are the averages:

  • 350-500 grafts on the moustache
  • 600-700 grafts for a full goatee
  • 200-250 grafts per sideburn (each)
  • 300-700 grafts on the cheek beard

If an extremely thick density is desired, some individuals may need a second round of transplants in the future. The key to creating a realistic look with facial hair transplantation is to utilize usually 1- and sometimes 2- hair grafts and carefully arrange them at the precise proper angle and orientation. Our beard transplant experts employ all-microscopically dissected grafts that may be inserted in the tiniest feasible incisions to reduce scarring. The hairs are permanent once implanted, and they grow with the same qualities as your natural facial hair. Furthermore, the transplanted hair may be shaved like any other facial hair.

The Beard Transplant Procedure

When conducted by our expert surgeon, beard transplant surgery is a safe treatment with outstanding outcomes – and the care with which the process is executed makes a huge difference in the quantity of follicles that survive the transplant surgery. Depending on the quantity of grafts, the procedure might take anywhere from two to four hours to perform. When the strip technique is utilized, complete recovery might take one or two weeks; when the FUE method is used, recovery takes less time. After surgery, it’s critical to keep the transplanted region dry for up to a week. After a few days, you may resume your normal activities. We give extensive post-transplant care instructions to ensure that as many follicles as possible thrive once they are relocated.

What Is The Price Of A Beard Implant?

Beard Transplants aren’t inexpensive but there is a reason for this. Depending on the quantity of grafts required, they might cost up to $15,000. Partial transplants, which are used to fill in parts of the face that don’t develop hair, may cost anywhere from $3,000 to $7,000, depending on the quantity of grafts transplanted. During your first session, you should address this expense with your doctor. To establish whether you’re a suitable candidate for the surgery, your doctor will need to inspect your scalp and face. Depending on the doctor, the consultation appointment may include a fee. Because each patient’s situation is unique, costs are often determined on a case-by-case basis.

Facial Transplantation With Donor Hairs

The most common source of donor hair for face transplantation is the scalp. Which part of the scalp you get depends on where our experts believe your scalp and face hair are the closest match. The hairs will grow permanently, with identical quality and features to your natural facial hair, and may be shaven after they have been implanted.

How Is The Procedure Done?

Healthy hair follicles are harvested throughout the operation. Grafts are taken from a donor location on the back or side of the head and implanted to fill in an uneven beard growth pattern or generate a fuller, more beautiful beard. Individual grafts or a strip of grafts may be extracted. These are the two procedures:


Follicular Unit Grafting (FUT) is a procedure that includes extracting a strip of tissue from the back or side of the head’s donor region. Grafts are then divided into follicular units and implanted one at a time under a microscope.


Follicular Unit Extraction- FUE grafts are retrieved individually in a random manner using a specialized surgical instrument and then implanted into the beard region. Hair grafts are chosen based on their hue to ensure that the transplanted hairs blend in well with the existing beard hair. To get a completely natural-looking appearance, each graft is inserted individually and expertly at a precisely determined depth and orientation.

Recovery and Timeline for Facial Hair Transplantation

Day 3: You may continue your typical mild, low-impact activities, and most individuals return to work. Week 1: Any swelling should be gone, and the dried scabs on each shaft should be gone. Week 2: The hair follicles that haven’t lost their shafts begin to develop and add to the density of facial hair. Months 4-6: The grafted hair should start to shed slowly, on the other hand, they might not not fall out at all and maintain their blood supply, allowing them to live and begin to develop hair after around 4-6 months. Month 12: The density of the mustache, sideburns, and beard will be entirely synchronized.

Results Of Beard Transplantation

It is vital, as with any surgical or medical operation, that it be carried out by a highly qualified medical specialist with considerable experience and the ability to provide natural-looking results. Our Toronto experts are top cosmetic and hair transplant surgeons due to their years of expertise, reputation for surgical skill, and aesthetic approach. They work extensively with each client to get the ideal beard pattern and a completely natural look. Your accomplishments will endure a lifetime. The hairs will shed for the first two weeks following the surgery. This shedding has no long-term consequences and is to be anticipated. Within a few months, you’ll see significant new beard growth in the transplanted location. You may anticipate continuous natural beard growth from that point forward.

Are There Any Risks Or Negative Effects To Be Concerned About?

As with any surgical procedure, there is a possibility of infection and some bleeding, but in the case of hair transplantation, these risks are quite low. It is possible for the hair follicles to get infected and irritated on occasion. There is also the chance of scarring at the site of the injury, but most hair will grow back over the region over time. Because results might vary, it is important to be realistic in your expectations.

How Long Will It Take For My Beard To Grow After Transplant?

Within three to six months, you will see considerable progress. The new hairs are noticeable after surgery, but they will eventually fall off. This is an expected aspect of the procedure. When the shedding cycle is finished, new hair will start to grow. A beard transplant will give you thicker, fuller facial hair for the rest of your life.

Who is a Candidate for Facial Hair Transplantation?

For people with thin or spotty beard growth, thin sideburns, thin mustache, or thin eyebrows, the FUE facial hair transplant treatment is an excellent choice. Facial hair transplants, like any other hair transplant, need a sufficient number of donor hairs. We’ll determine if you have the needed hairs during your first consultation to match your objectives and desired appearance.
