Have you tried different treatments to grow your beard and mustache, and the results have not been what you expected? If so, we bring you an effective solution to achieve fuller-looking facial hair: a beard transplant!
At HairFix, we want to help you achieve your desired look; that is why our team of specialized doctors will design your beard and mustache according to the shape of your face, age, style, and needs.
The mustache and beard transplantation we perform is a simple and minimally invasive procedure where the follicles are carefully transplanted one by one from the back of the head – known as donor area – to the regions where more density is wanted (recipient area).
Most beard transplants are performed using a technique that involves removing hair follicles to transplant them into another area to ensure the best texture and coverage.
The doctor makes small incisions in the beard to determine the best direction and growth pattern in the beard in which the hair grafts will be placed. As it is an outpatient procedure, only local anesthesia is applied, which means that you will be conscious, but you will not feel pain.
Here we explain how our certified specialists carry out this technique that will allow you to have a more natural appearance and design the style of your beard and mustache as you wish.
The doctor will define the areas to be treated; this examination allows the physician to determine the number of follicles required to cover the area where the patient is experiencing hair loss; the follicles are extracted from the back of the head.
The selection of follicles is done carefully, choosing only the ones in optimal conditions to
ensure positive results.
Once the required follicles are extracted, they will be implanted in the beard and mustache areas where more density is wanted. The procedure is carried out meticulously. The doctor uses specially designed instruments to control the direction, depth, and angle that each follicle requires to achieve a natural look.
At the end of the procedure, the patient must follow a postoperative care guide provided by the medical team. By doing this, the patient will be seeing his hair growth evolving without complications, achieving a better hairline and a fuller-looking mane with no bald spots.
There are several reasons men may have a thin beard or areas where the hair does not grow. The most common factors are:

Tijuana is considered the capital of medical tourism, receiving more than 2.5 million Americans who seek health treatments with highly trained specialists, in modern facilities and cutting edge technology.
Services such as surgeries, medical procedures, consultations and medicines are on average 70% cheaper compared to the cost in the United States but with the same quality and level of results. For this reason, citizens cross the border to go to clinics specialized in hair grafting such as Hairfix, located in Tijuana just 5 minutes from the San Ysidro checkpoint, in the most important medical tourism center in the area, NewCity Medical Plaza.
The hair transplanted into the beard comes from your own scalp, mainly from the back of the head which is where there is more thickness and greater similarity in texture with facial hair. The hair source for grafting allows avoiding coloration, consistency and texture problems; and the doctor in charge of the procedure will analyze the specific spots from where you will get the follicles to do the transplant.
A full beard transplant can take around eight hours and the recovery time after surgery requires a couple of weeks.
As with any surgery, with beard transplantation there are risks of infection and bleeding, although it is very rare that they occur with this type of procedure, since it is slightly invasive. Sometimes, the follicles can become infected and inflamed; there is also a scarring possibility in the area where the follicles were extracted, although over time it will not be noticed thanks to the hair that grows around.
Topical antibiotics application will reduce the risk of infections and, will help to manage the discomfort caused by normal side effects and avoid abnormalities. It is recommended to follow the postoperative care instructions given by the medical team. If you identify any problems, you should immediately consult your doctor for a medical checkup.
After the hair implantation, you must follow the medical care instructions that you were given. General indications may include a topical antibiotic use on the face and scalp in the donor area. During the first days you should avoid swimming, exposure to direct sunlight, smoking, using the sauna or hydrotherapy bathtub, and doing strenuous physical activity especially one which causes sweating. In addition, you have to avoid touching, scratching or rubbing the donor area and where the implant was performed. It may also be recommended not to wash your face for a few days to avoid carving your beard. It is important that you know that your skin will be sensitive and itchy, but, to avoid irritation and reduce the risks of infection, you should not touch yourself.
With our procedure, you will not have any scars in the transplanted area since our high-precision technique is the most advanced in the field. The instruments used during the extraction and implantation are specially designed for the direct micro hair transplantation procedure.
The hair is extracted from its roots, which means that once the follicles are out, there won’t be any place for hair to grow back from. However, the doctor performs the extraction in a strategic way to ensure that there are no visible spots in the donor area once it has completely healed.
A beard implantation is an ambulatory procedure, meaning that the patient comes in and walks
out of the clinic the same day. After a few days, you’ll be able to return to your daily activities.
The patient must follow a postoperative care guide provided by our medical team within the
first two weeks after the procedure, which includes avoiding the use of saunas and
swimming pools, exposing yourself directly under sunlight, involving in activities that may cause excessive sweating and the use of certain products on the area.
Local anesthesia is used before the extraction and implantation phases start. The patient remains conscious but feeling no pain.
The cost of beard and hair transplants in general, varies according to the characteristics of each case, however the price of a beard implant could be at least $ 3,000 dollars. The doctor will assess your case and expectations in order to give you a treatment budget. The work is done by hair and not by grafting, which allows you to choose only the follicles most suitable for the transplant success, so during the assessment the viability of your hair will be verified to determine if you are a good candidate to undergo the procedure.
As long as your scalp is in good health, an implant procedure is viable. Many men who exhibit balding patterns are interested in beard implantation, but may have more limited options by the source from which the follicles will be taken. In either case, a doctor will assess your case and inform you if there are alternatives in case you are not a good candidate for a transplant process.
Regardless of the type of technique used to do the transplant, after three or four months, the transplanted hair follicles should be well settled and begin to grow. You will know if the beard implant was successful if at eight or nine months after surgery you have a full beard that you can treat as if you had it all the time because of its natural appearance.
The hair to the beard transplant failure is usually the result of an inadequate hair selection from the donor area, so it is very important to choose doctors with experience in hair restoration.

In short, beard grafting procedures involve extracting follicles from the back of the head (known as the donor area), and then grafting them into the beard area.
When these procedures are not done correctly, the implanted beard does not manage to have the adequate follicular density, in addition, the design can also look artificial and the direction in which the hair grows does not look natural. These results show an inadequate procedure.
Unlike the details mentioned above, the most experienced hair graft specialists not only offer cutting edge treatments, such as direct hair micro-implantation, but also their work and results are proven with thousands of satisfied patients. There are clinics that offer beard grafting services performed by technicians who may not have enough knowledge to perform a successful beard graft.
Our specialized technique shows better results thanks to the fact that it is performed with very fine instruments in order to extract and implant hair by hair, taking care that each follicle is removed in perfect conditions and that the donors and the recipients skin area are not injured.
Beard growth can vary from patient to patient, but usually, the results of a beard transplantation start being noticeable after the third month. As time goes by, the hair keeps increasing its density and thickness.
