If you also happen to be a little skeptical when it comes to this procedure, don’t worry! This post will explore some of the aspects of this surgery to take into consideration before you make your decision.

The Procedure

The transplanted hairs are taken directly from the back of the scalp, as these are the follicles that most closely resemble actual hair that is grown around the chin. The hairs also fall out after about two weeks from the operation date, but will permanently grow in place around three months down the road.

Patience is key with a beard transplant surgery. The good news about beard transplants is that the recovery time is minimal, as is the pain you will feel after the operation.
