What is Beard Restoration?

Beard restoration is a minimally-invasive surgical procedure in which hair is removed from a designated location on your body and carefully transplanted to your face. This process allows you to restore the full, thick beard. Thinning beard hair can be the results of various factors, including:

  • Genetics
  • Injury
  • Cosmetic procedures
  • Skin cancer removal
Facial hair transplants

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.

How Long Will it Take to Grow a Beard following Beard Restoration?

You should be able to notice significant growth within two months following your beard restoration procedure. If you would like to grow your beard a bit longer, that can take up to four to six months to grow fully.

Are the Results of Beard Restoration Long-Lasting?

Yes. Once the healthy follicles are implanted in the new location, they will be there for the foreseeable future and will continue to grow.
