Can hair be transplanted to help fill in or create a beard?
Yes. In almost all cases, Dr. Epstein is able to transplant hair from the scalp or sometimes other parts of the body to the face to help fill in or create facial hair for a patient where no facial hair existed before. However, the doctor does prefer to avoid transplanting to the “soul patch” or the area beneath the lower lip and centrally located toward the chin mount due to the risk of lumps forming in that particular area as it is a very sensitive area of the face.
