Beard transplant is a method preferred by men feeling discomfort by the thinness of their beard depending on the personal preferences. In beard transplant, intense donor hair taken over the cheekbones or back of the head is placed into the area where the beard is thin. Beard transplant can also be performed for the local losses occurring due to various reasons such as burns, injuries.
