I have very fine donor hair and not enough to cover my bald head. But I have a good beard. My question is, how much beard hair can a doctor extract from the face to use for transplantation? Personally for me I don’t care about my beard hair and I’d be happy to use it all for a transplant. Could that be possible?
There are 30000 beard hairs which have a growth cycle similar to scalp hair (between 2-3 years). Of the 30,000 beard hairs on an average male, the best ones to use are the ones under the chin so it doesn’t look like you had any beard removed, but you should use scalp hair first, especially in the frontal leading edge of the hairline. You can probably get 15,000 hairs from the beard.
