Beard and Mustache Transplant
Scalp hair can be transplanted to areas where the hair is absent or thin.
It is important to utilize hair from the nape. As in regular hair transplant, it is essential to carefully determine the direction of the follicles. An important detail in this context is the natural curvy structure of beard hair and the change of moustache direction towards the midline. The angle of the hair is 5-10 degrees, as in eyebrows.
