How is Beard Restoration Performed?

In order to perform your beard transplant, hair must be removed from an area of healthy hair growth, so those follicles can be transplanted to create a fuller, attractive beard This is commonly completed using a method known as a Follicular Unit. These follicles will then be separated into one or two follicle units and transplanted to create the full, thick beard you desire.

What Can I Expect Following Beard Restoration?

Beard restoration is performed within the calm, serene environment of our midtown Manhattan offices under local anesthesia. Most patients remain very comfortable during beard restoration surgery. Dr. Wolfeld will remove hair follicles from the designated area with the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and prepare them for implantation. Then, he will carefully place individual follicles to restore the fullness of your beard. Our surgery for facial hair transplant in NYC can last between two and five hours depending on the extent of the area that needs filling in.

What Can I Expect Following Beard Restoration?

You will experience minimal discomfort following your beard restoration surgery, as well as small areas where the skin begins to crust. This is normal and should dissipate within one to two weeks following your procedure.

There is a normal “shedding” process that will occur within a few weeks of your beard restoration procedure. Once this shedding occurs, you will notice that your beard will begin to grow, filling in areas that were once patchy, uneven, or bare. You should avoid shaving or trimming your beard for ten days to two weeks following beard restoration to allow the transplanted follicles to heal appropriately.
