There are two popular used techniques for beard transplant:
FUE technique: FUE technique is a painless method based on extracting entire follicular units from the donor area at the same time instead of extracting the bulbs one by one.
Using a punch tool, the surgeon will extract full follicular units and replace them with the recipient area.
FUT Technique: It is also called the strip method, before transplanting the hair follicles, the surgeon takes a strip of skin from the back of the donor area where the hair is strongest and sutures the incision. After that, the doctor divides it into distinct parts for transplantation and places it in 0.5mm incisions and stitches.
Both of these techniques will be done under local anesthesia.
You will notice the diffidence and see the results after 3 months. You should anticipate witnessing lengthy growth and positive effects after the transplanted units start producing new hair.
