Beard Transplantation

Thanks to our vast experience in hair restoration, DHI Mexico offers facial hair restoration treatments.

Mustache and beard transplantation can be achieved with a minimally invasive DHI technique, under local anesthesia and without any scarring in the implanted area.  Our flagship hair restoration technique, Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) restores facial hair by using hair follicles from a donor area (generally your scalp) and transplanting hair to the desired areas.  We apply the latest innovations in hair replacement technology to deliver 100% natural and permanent results that you will love, with no pain, no scars, and no suture.  Best of all, the entire treatment can be done in one sitting (in most cases).

In these cases, the certified doctor identifies simple follicles (only one hair per follicle) for the transplant to be successful, so that maximum density can be achieved in the natural direction of existing hair growth.  The implantation allows developing a bushy beard or simply filling the depopulated areas.

Facial hair transplant in a male is implemented in areas where hair is either absent or very thin.  In order to achieve incredibly aesthetic results, DHI specialists take into account the following considerations: a) shape of the face, b) ethnicity, c) age, and d) personal preferences.

It is extremely important for a patient to be properly counseled about the procedure.  At DHI Mexico, pre-procedural protocols are in place to ensure a 100% safe treatment with a successful outcome.

How does Beard Implantation work?

Taking into account aesthetic aspects and patient preferences, the DHI specialist designs the area of ​​the beard or mustache that will be implanted.  Subsequently, he or she determines the number of hairs needed to cover the affected area, as well as the density and type of follicle required.

Hair follicles are picked one by one to match the beard or mustache, and thanks to the world-class techniques and procedures implemented by DHI-trained and qualified doctors, there is complete control over the angle, depth and direction of the transplanted hair, which allows us to achieve a natural-looking result.  The implanted hair will grow with a natural appearance throughout life.

This procedure is only done by physicians certified by DHI Global Medical Group, following strict safety protocols to ensure the well-being of our patients.  Through medications, specialized innovative tools and local anesthesia, the area to be worked upon is completely numbed and the procedure in itself is almost completely painless.  The patients are made aware of the procedure at every step to put them at ease.  Post-procedure, the patients are advised to follow medications and precautions for 2 to 3 days following before they can get back to their normal routine.

What is the cause of the lack of thickness in the beard?DHI Mexico2019-11-13T19:15:09+00:00

Genetics are the main cause of a patchy beard. Additionally, low hormone levels such as testosterone or excessive levels of dihydrotestosterone (DHI) can also cause limited beard growth. Alopecia Areata, although not so common, can also lead to baldness in your cheek area.

Having healthy scalp hair is the first indicator that you are a good candidate for a beard transplant. However, there are other factors that can help us determine if a beard transplant is a good option for you.

Please contact us for a free consultation.

What are the risks or side effects I should know about?DHI Mexico2019-11-13T19:17:33+00:00

It’s important to mention that the risk is extremely low. In some rare cases, risks may include slight bleeding and infection or inflammation of hair follicles.

Another factor that should be considered is the possibility of scarring in the donor area, even if only one fifth of the hair is extracted.

What is expected after the procedure?DHI Mexico2019-11-13T19:18:29+00:00

15 to 30 days after the procedure, your transplanted beard will fall, and within 90 days, your beard will grow back from the transplanted hair follicles. Nine months after the procedure, you will see the final results of your transplant.

Which hair will be transplanted in my beard?DHI Mexico2019-11-13T19:19:25+00:00

The transplanted hair follicles or grafts are extracted from the donor area on your scalp (usually the back of your head) where the hair is most similar to that of the beard.

What is the time line?DHI Mexico2019-11-13T19:20:22+00:00

We begin with a first diagnostic appointment. If the hair specialists confirm that you are a good candidate and you decide to move forward with the procedure, the specialists will discuss details and help you pick a calendar date.

If you are traveling to Tijuana, we will request that you arrive the night before the procedure. On the day of the procedure, the entire process takes about 8 hours. You will also need to visit the clinic the day after the procedure so that the nurses can cleanse your donor area. After that, you’re good to go!

Can I choose my beard style?DHI Mexico2019-11-13T19:21:31+00:00

Yes you can! It all depends on your donor area and the desired hair density. Our hair specialists will guide you through the process in your FREE in-person or videocall consultation.

Will I have to change my shaving habits after having a beard transplant?DHI Mexico2019-11-13T19:22:27+00:00

On the first 30 days post-procedure, you will need to follow special instructions, as your skin and hair will be more fragile during this period. However, after 30 days, you will be able to resume your normal shaving habits.

How much does a beard transplant cost?DHI Mexico2022-05-31T01:28:11+00:00

The cost for beard transplant varies from patient to patient, as each individual case is different and must be assessed by a hair specialist. That being said, it would not be professional to have a fixed price for all of our patients. For a specific quote, we recommend that you talk to our hair specialists during a FREE in-person or videocall consultation.
