In principle, there is not much difference between beard and mustache hair transplants. In beard transplants, it is important to identify the growth direction of the hair follicles, just as in scalp hair transplant. The hair follicles are transplanted on the scalp in the incisions at a certain angle. Therefore, the making of the incisions is very crucial. It is also crucial to identify the direction of the hair follicles and this is possible depending on the doctor’s expertise – the more the expertise, the better the angle. In beard transplants, the hair follicles are given certain angles when being transplanted.
Also, on the scalp, particularly when designing the hair frontline, we transplant follicular units of two and three, whereas on the beard, this is often singular or double follicular units.
