Beard Hair Transplant

A goatee, a three-day beard, a full beard—they are all trendy. Not without reason: a full and thick beard adds expressiveness, masculinity, and distinction to the male face. Sadly, not everyone has the ability to grow a thick beard. Beard loss or beard hair loss can be caused by genetic predisposition with sparse beard growth, scars, or hair loss. But there is an effective and gentle solution: a beard hair transplant. With a beard hair transplant, we have already been able to help many men grow a full beard. Find out all the background information on the treatment, costs, and more below.

Who is a good candidate for beard transplant?

A full and thick beard looks masculine, appealing, and gives the wearer self-confidence. It is therefore mostly aesthetic reasons that give rise to the desire for a beard hair transplant. These include:

  • Congenital, genetic malformation: no beard growth or leaky beard growth with gaps or bald spots.
  • Beard loss due to hormones: beard hair falls out and the beard becomes patchy or sparse.
  • Circular hair loss: Sudden hairless round or diffuse areas caused by an autoimmune disease. The hairless herd usually appears in the transition between the chin line or jaw line and the neck (jawline).
  • Scarring alopecia: An autoimmune disease causes more or less scarred hairless areas on the face.
  • Use of medications such as finasteride to treat androgenetic hair loss of the scalp
  • Scars from accidents.
  • A cleft lip and palate
  • Transgender: Trans men

Healthy hair usually grows back. However, if a hair follicle is destroyed, hair no longer grows there. The only way to get long-term beard growth back in a bald spot is to transplant healthy hair roots to fill in that spot.

Gaps in the beard:

They are mostly hereditary. Here, the genetic malformation of hair follicles is present, which makes the beard appear incomplete. This is the most common reason for gaps in the beard for 4 out of 5 men.

Circular hair loss on the beard, also known as alopecia barbae, is widespread. The background is an autoimmune reaction in which the hair follicles are attacked by their own immune system. The result is an inflammatory reaction, disturbed hair growth, and hair loss. In this form of the disease, the hair follicles are in a dormant mode and are not irreversibly destroyed.

But there are also special cases that do not always fit into a grid. Therefore, a comprehensive anamnesis (examination of the medical history, history, blood count, etc.) is required to find the cause.


Of course, an accident can also lead to hair loss. Due to the injured skin tissue and the correspondingly destroyed hair follicles, there is no growth of beard hair. In addition to circular hair loss (alopecia areata), congenital alopecia, and systemic diseases, stress, malnutrition, medication, and testosterone deficiency are also possible causes of beard hair loss.

Treatment for Beard Loss and Beard Hair Transplant

We will only treat you if we see a high chance of success. As a result, the cause(s) of your hair loss should be identified in order to prevent further hair loss. We can then fill in gaps or thinning hair sections of your beard.

The process of beard hair transplant

Here we use a very gentle process, the FUE method. Roughly speaking, it consists of these steps:

  1. First, suitable donor areas are identified. In the case of large areas of baldness, the hair is removed from the back of the head or from the crown of hair. In the case of smaller areas or beard gaps, the beard hair can be removed from the neck region in a targeted and unobtrusive manner. But other body hair, such as chest hair, may also be suitable for this.
  2. The hair follicles are removed individually using a very fine hollow needle.
  3. Depending on the location of the beard gaps, individual hairs and hair groups of 2-3 hairs (follicular units or multi grafts) are then selected.
  4. The channels for the transplants are placed at the right angle, precisely and gently.
  5. The grafts are inserted or implanted in the desired location.
  6. To ensure that the transplants/grafts grow optimally, we support them with a special treatment.
  7. During the healing phase, we will, of course, be happy to advise you if you have any questions. However, this is usually not necessary due to the generally good healing.

  • Depending on the initial situation, one or more sessions are required.
  • It takes about 12 months from the first treatment to develop a full beard.
  • As a rule, the transplanted whiskers fall out by themselves within 2 weeks after the transplant. However, the hair roots remain and then grow back between the 3rd and 12th months after the transplant. Thanks to our decades of experience and our gentle FUE technique, up to 50% of the transplanted hair can start growing immediately compared to conventional methods of hair transplant.
  • We achieve a 90% success rate in hair loss treatments for our patients.
  • Since we administer local anesthesia when removing and transplanting the hair, the treatment is painless.
  • A hair transplant can be performed at any age. However, in young patients between 18 and 23 years of age, careful consideration must be given to the development of beard growth as part of the delayed growth.
  • In principle, the transplanted whiskers grow for a lifetime.
