Beard implants are performed under local anesthesia. The duration of the procedure depends on the technique chosen and the extent of your alopecia, but it generally takes between 5 and 6 hours. This procedure is done on an outpatient basis, which means that you go home the same day.
A pencil mark is made on both the beard and the scalp to delimit the area to be treated (beard) as well as the area to be harvested (hair).
As with hair transplants, the doctor begins by removing the hair follicles from the skull using a small scalpel. These recovered follicles are then transplanted into the beard and/or moustache, following a pencil sketch made beforehand.
The number of sessions required for a beard transplant depends on the case. It should be noted that the transplant sessions should generally be spaced at least 6 months apart.
