Beard transplantation is usually carried out for men who are concerned about hair loss or lack of intensive growth in the beard area. Some men grow a beard following the fashion trends, others — in order to hide scars or flaws on the face.

In beard transplantation uses the same technique as in hair transplantation. Single follicular compounds consisting of one or two hairs are extracted from the donor area on the back of the head and transplanted into microscopic holes along the cheek or lower jaw line.
