What to expect
A beard transplant can fill in bald patches and help to create either a full beard or a perfectly sculpted goatee.
Nearly 50% of men struggle with facial hair loss. This prevents them from being able to grow a full beard or a moustache and often manifests as patches of hair loss across the face.
With a beard transplant, our surgeons extract healthy hair follicles from your donor area and implant it on the balding spots on your face, to help create the look you want.
A beard transplant is performed in the same way as a hair transplant
Most patients opt for the FUE method as this allows the surgeon to individually select the grafts most suited to facial tissue. The grafts are then separated into single hair units and prepared for implantation. These can be placed into the chin, face or eyebrows in a single session
Genetics, burns, scarring or skin trauma, radiation treatment, systematic illnesses, past surgeries, trichotillomania or simply natural hair loss.
Beard transplant results are permanent.
Yes, after the beard transplant you can continue shaving as usual. The donor hair (from the scalp) reacts the same to shaving as facial hair.
The Sun newspaper joined us behind the scenes of a beard transplant in Sheffield with Dr. Hassan Nurein.
Dr. Nurein performed the beard transplant surgery and we discussed the most common questions that our patients have, especially the topic of shaving after a beard transplant.

When you book with Surgery Group you will be seeing the surgeon and not the salesman
Regarding COVID19, we are working with selected COVID-protected facilities who have now reopened. These clinics have started a phased return model for a new normal with various safety measures in place including a limited number of procedures, reduced footfall through the clinic and enhanced PPE for staff. On the day, you will be asked to complete a COVID questionnaire and have your temperature taken on entry, as well as being asked to wash your hands. You will be asked to wear a face mask so that theoretically you are protected and you protect staff members in case anyone happens to be positive whilst asymptomatic.
Surgery Group have adopted guidelines from the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery for use in all clinics taking into account UK law and each clinic has completed a COVID19 risk assessment of the patient journey through the clinic and taken steps to minimise risk, and we hope that by doing so, the risk of contracting coronavirus is significantly less than your weekly supermarket shop, however, it is not possible to guarantee that the risk of catching it is zero, such as in the nature of the virus.
To be clear, the government’s advice for the time being remains to stay at home unless you need to leave the house for one of 4 reasons including “any medical need” –
Without specific national guidance on hair transplant clinics, we deem it safe to offer the service in a limited capacity with the measures we have taken, but it is up to you to decide if leaving the house to attend a hair transplant clinic constitutes a “medical need”.
