Step 4: Implanting grafts

After about 3 to 4 months, the first results of your beard transplant will be noticeable. The result will eventually become fully visible after 12 to 13 months. After 3-7 months the hairs start to grow well and the results become visible. The results are best visible after 12 months. Under ideal conditions, the transplanted hair will continue to produce hair throughout your life.


All of this is done with extreme precision, so that the transplanted hairs ultimately have a natural growth direction. All hair root groups (grafts) are transferred, or transplanted, to the desired location on the head without stitches.

The hair follicles on the hair crown at the back of the head are immune to the hormone dihydrotestosterone (DHT), which is responsible for baldness. The hair roots from the donor area (the hair ring) simply continue to grow in the place where they were transplanted. At the back of the head, the hair roots can produce hair again, but in many cases a tiny white spot (scar) will be visible.
