Facial hair transplant, generally considered as beard transplant, is a growing trend popular among men, whose facial hair do not grow, grow irregularly or do not appear in some areas, thus preventing them from achieving the desired look. Among possible variations are beard hair transplant, mustache hair transplant, and eyebrow hair transplant. Beard transplant is the most preferred facial hair transplant type among them. Beard hairs tend to grow much more rapidly and being long-lasting than other forms of body hair. This is why men may often grow beards quite long. Beard hair transplants are very consistent and will result with a yield typically between 60% and 100%.

As in the case of time, facial hair transplant cost depends on a number of follicular units extracted or, in the case of FUT, on the size of the scalp part transplanted.

As we see, the difference lies not only in the number of units/sizes of the area extracted during the operation but also in the location you choose for your surgery.
