Facial Hair Transplants

Restoring Hair to the Goatee, Moustache, Beard and Sideburns

Transplantation of facial hair is a procedure which restores hair to areas where the growth of hair is either thin or missing entirely. Whilst this procedure is more commonly carried out on the goatee and moustache areas, however it can also be performed for the majority of beard area, sideburns and cheeks. Facial hair transplants are also commonly used to conceal acne scars and other facial scars.

Loss of facial hair occurs for a number of reasons including laser hair removal, electrolysis, surgery, burns, injury or simply as a result of genetics. The majority of of goals from this type of procedure vary from a minor filling in or thin coverage of a small area all the way through to a full restoration of a thick full goatee or beard area. The procedure itself can be performed and carried out on areas where there is little to no hair or on areas where hair growth is thin and the client desires more fullness.

On a client to client basis, the number of individual grafts that is required for the treatment can vary but as an average benchmark, the number of grafts per treatment are as follows;

  • 350-500 grafts for the moustache area
  • 600-700 grafts for the full goatee area
  • 200-250 grafts for each sideburn
  • 300-700 grafts for a cheek

While not a common occurrence, some patients request and require a second procedure to transplant additional grafts to achieve a thicker density with their beard.

As with a regular hair transplant procedure, the donor hairs for a facial hair transplant are extracted from the back or sides of the scalp. The choice of site is usually dependent on which offers the closest match to the facial hair structure. Once transplanted, the hairs are permanent and typically will grow as if they are natural facial hair, providing similar texture and other characteristics. The transplanted hair, once grown, can be shaved as you would with the rest of you facial hair without any adverse consequences.


If you’re on the fence about having a treatment done, why not read some of the comments below from previous clients who were more than happy to share their experience.

I visited Better Hair Transplant Clinic for a free consultation to discuss my options. I meet with Sharon who was great at explaining all my options and gave me realistic expectations. After the consultation, I booked my FUE hair transplant to give me a new hairline.

This has been an amazing experience and I can’t wait to see the final results. I would completely recommend Better Hair Transplant Clinics to anyone who felt the way I did. I’m so glad I took that first step and booked my consultation. It’s changed my life for the better and I’m a much more confident person for it.


After deliberating for a number of years whether the insecurity about my receding hairline was enough to warrant spending thousands on it and having had a few eye watering quotes, my partner found Better Hair Transplant Clinics.

From that moment the full team were great. Any questions I had were answered quickly in the lead up to procedure, and on the day I was made to feel extremely comfortable all the way through by the surgeon and his team, who were all fantastic.
