Loss of facial hair may occur for numerous reasons: genetics, laser hair removal, electrolysis, surgery, burns or injury. Transgender female to male patients (FTM) may also benefit from facial hair restoration. This procedure can vary from minor fillings, or thin coverage of a limited area to the full facial hair restoration of a thick, full goatee or beard. Facial hair restoration can be performed on bald areas, or regions where hair growth lacks and greater fullness is needed.

Facial hair restoration is performed using either FUT or FUE hair restoration techniques. If you select FUE surgery, the hair grafts will be individually extracted from the back of the head. Facial hair restoration techniques performed by BHHR surgeon ensure minimal scarring. We procures specialized tools to harvest grafts with minimal punch sizes between 0.7-0.8 mm. You will worry less about visible scarring on the back of your head, making facial hair restoration a popular choice among our male patients.

Three Facial Hair Restoration Steps


1. Once the grafts have been harvested, BHHR surgeon carefully prepares the recipient sites on the designated areas. During this step, tiny incisions are made with consideration to depth, angle, and direction of the transplanted follicles, so the hairs can be controlled. This ensures the hair transplants look as natural as possible, and blend in with the surrounding hairs.

2. Oftentimes, hairs from the back of the head will be the best match for the goatee or mustache region and cheeks, while donor hairs from the sides will be an excellent match for the sideburns and posterior cheeks. Once transplanted, the hairs are permanent and eventually grow like facial hair with similar texture and other relatable characteristics.

3. Lastly, the transplanted hair can be shaved like facial hair. Depending on the patient’s hair type and cosmetic goals, FUT surgery may be a strong possibility.

The difference with FUT surgery is that a strip of tissue is surgically removed from the back of the head, dissecting the hair grafts from this tissue. BHHR surgeon expert precision leaves the linear scar so tiny that during follow up appointments, it is difficult to locate the incision. BHHR surgeon is proudly recognized as one of the only hair restoration surgeons, who performs precise graft extractions manually – by hand.


As long as you have healthy hair on your scalp, facial hair restoration is a viable possibility to achieve your facial hair goals. A number of men inflicted with male pattern baldness may be interested in the facial hair restoration process, but may have limited options.

Some patients may require a second smaller procedure to transplant additional grafts for more moderate density.
