Beard Hair Transplant - Any recommendations?


Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

 

Newbie here from Australia. Been flicking through the forum for the last couple of days and jotted down a list of all the reputable FUE surgeons. I am look at having hair transplanted into my cheek/jawline area in order to acquire a more fuller beard and cover up some old acne scarring in the process. I met with one of Dr. Masroor Alam's reps (practices FUE in Dubai and Australia) here in Melbourne. In conclusion, I was quoted for $11,200AUD for 1000 grafts (including the airfares for the short flight to Brisbane). Thanks to this forum and to some research of my own, I have backed out of having the HT with Dr Alam.

 

Anyone know of any surgeon(s) specializing in beard hair transplants?

 

Thanks in advance!

Too expensive and he is not top DR. I want to do the same surgery but I am still not sure because i do not have scar to hide but in your case, It is reasonable surgery. Dr Hakan Doganay, MD does beard transplant for 2.5 euro FUE. I never seen his work to be honest with you but he is recommended in this website and member of IAHRS. you should ask him How often does he do bead transplant. Dr. Jeffrey Epstein is very famous for facial hair transplant. He is a specialized in facial hair transplant, and does them three to four times a week, he is not recommended in this site but a member of IAHRS and top surgeon. you could see his work in his website.

Hi Doubletree. Appreciate your input and have noted the surgeons you have mentioned. Just out of curiosity, what is holding you back from having this procedure?

There is many reasons holding me back. First, I read it is hard to reach the density you want from first procedure since head hair is about 1/2 the diameter of beard hair so each hair will not be as thick, second, I am afraid that it might affect my scalp hair which is to me more important than any beard. Third, the cost price is expensive. Even though I have patchy beard, I still need from 1800 to 2300 grafts . Mine would still cost like $15000 in the USA for FUE with top surgeon. I feel more comfortable doing the surgery in the USA. I am not stupid enough to let average surgeon who unskilled to touch my face and kill my scalp hair for cheaper price because if someone unskilled you could have permanent scar, so be careful my friend who to choose. I might consider Dr Hakan Doganay, MD since he is recommended here, member of IAHRS and closer to me than USA but I need to see his beard transplant first. There is no doubt, he has many great HT result but I never seen his beard transplant result. His price is affordable. Fourth, the redness after the procedure. I read, it might last as long as 3 months but with top surgeons, they told me only 3 weeks for the redness to disappear. Fifth, This is with what top Dr in India told me "Though I advise against beard hair transplant due to the permanent nature of grafts and non feasibility to in some cases to shave in future, I would like to see your pictures and discuss further with you." then I sent him my picture, He replied " Sorry we do not do this type of hair transplant since discontent after procedure is very high. In some individuals I have seen (as much as 65%) that there are bumps after shaving and the shaved look is not smooth. Many have repented having a procedure done later in life".

 

Finally, permeant scar in the recipient site, however, top dr told me it is rare. Grafts are so small, averaging less than 1mm

 

I am still not sure but I feel we only live once why not take risk.

Thanks for your informative response. Yes, I read about what Dr Bhatti told you in another thread which was concerning. In terms of the density that you mention, is it not possible to get the required density in one session? I have some real bald spots along my beard line with little to no hair at all. Hope that I won't need to go back to Turkey again as it is quite a trek from Australia. At the end of the day, I don't intend to ever clean shave my beard so in my case, perhaps it's a less risky proposition. I just hope I don't have much damage done to the donor site. With every surgery comes risk my friend. Pick a good surgeon and go for it if the pro's outweigh the con's!

it is possible to achieve the required density in one session. it is just depends how big is your bald spots and how thick you want the area to be. Many factors to consider. Post picture of your beard. or check ***outside link removed by moderator***. Compare your situation with people in the photo. you get an idea of the graft required and the result.

If you decide to do the surgery, please keep us update. I want to see the progress. I am thinking of doing it july, or aug or sept.

My beard is something akin to this guy's *** outside link removed by moderator *** with bald spots near the goatee area. I'm looking for a bit more coverage though in the mid-cheek area so perhaps 1,000 to 1,500 grafts would suffice. Will have it done as soon as I decide on which surgeon to choose. Will keep everyone posted.
