The FUE technique is used for beard and moustache transplantation, this means that the hair is extracted from the back of the head and transplanted into the bald areas of the beard and moustache. As the back of the head has the most abundant amount of hair, beard and moustache transplantation gives natural results. The beard and moustache transplant is performed under local anesthesia and lasts between 2 and 5 hours. If the bald area on the face is big, then it may take much more time. For example, 1,500 grafts can be enough to create a goatee while about 3,000 grafts will be extracted to achieve a full beard or more density.
