Patchy Beard? Get A Thicker, Fuller Beard With A Hair Transplantation

Hair loss is one of our patients’ biggest concerns, especially with men. But oftentimes we tend to forget the areas that don’t even begin to grow hair, especially when it comes to men’s beards. Hair transplantation procedures are typically associated with the hairline and the eyebrows, but here at the offices of double board-certified facial plastic surgeon, Dr. Jason Champagne, we are able to help men correct thin, patchy or absent facial hair to the mustache and beard area. Find out if you’re a good candidate below for a facial hair transplantation procedure.




Who Is A Good Candidate?

Typically performed on individuals in their 20s or older, our hair transplantation procedures give you more of your own hair in areas of hair loss. Good candidates for a facial hair transplantation procedure tend to be men who have areas of sparse facial hair or non-growth, those who have suffered hair loss through trauma or not due to a medical condition, and have realistic goals and expectations. Since everyone is different, with distinct goals and concerns, it’s best to schedule an individual private consultation with Dr. Champagne to decide whether you’d be a good candidate or not.

Common Questions About A Beard/Mustache Hair Transplantation:

How is the procedure performed?

During the procedure, Dr. Champagne performs Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and/or Follicular Unit Transfer (FUT), aka “Strip” method, hair transplant procedures. During your consultation he will help decide which treatment would be best to meet your goals. In fact, Dr. Champagne has published book chapters on the subject and is an expert in both.

Do you charge by the procedure, by the follicular unit, or by the follicle?

Dr. Champagne will customize your treatment, and your hair transplant procedure will be quoted per graft aka follicular unit.

What’s the downtime for Hair Transplantation?

The downtime is typically extremely minimal (on average 1-2 days) without any bruising or swelling. For example, patients from out of town usually fly home the very next day.

When will I see results / my hair grown in?

With hair transplantation alone, patients typically start to see hair growth 3-4 months after their procedure, but Dr. Champagne customizes treatment plans with the latest techniques like PRP (platelet rich plasma), laser technology and oral medication to significantly improve and speed up your growth process.
