No beard at 20? Beard transplant might be for you

Why is Scalp Hair used in the Beard Transplant?

The hair at the donor areas of your scalp is unaffected by hair loss and has similar texture as your beard. That’s the purpose of using your scalp donor hair in your beard transplant.

Meet a Hair Transplant Surgeon at the Hair Transplant Clinic:

The hair transplant surgeon will first examine your recipient region i.e. your beard.

Then he will check your donor areas of the scalp very carefully, to get to know that whether your scalp donor hair supply is sufficient for your beard area or not.

Insufficient Donor Hair Supply:

If your scalp donor hair supply is insufficient to cover your beard region, then the hair transplant surgeon will examine your hair from other parts of your body like arms, legs or chest.

If these are enough to cover your beard area then the hair transplant surgeon will use hair from other parts of your body as a donor hair supply.
