Make sure you allow time to visit the Brisbane clinic in Spring Hill to meet the team or ask any last-minute questions you might have.

Frequently Asked Questions
How long after a beard transplant can I shave?
You can begin shaving your face with a razor four weeks post-procedure. One of our nurses will give you full post-operative care instructions on the day of the procedure.
Why is it important to have a doctor perform a beard hair transplant?
As with a hair transplant for a receding hairline, you want to ensure a natural-looking result that is undetectable once the transplanted hairs have grown through. To achieve a natural look, each of the implanted hairs has to follow the same pattern as the other beard hairs. Our PFP hair transplant technique gives the doctor full control over the depth, direction and angle of each hair that is implanted.
How much does a beard transplant cost?
The price of a beard transplant will depend on many factors – the provider’s experience, customer service, the hair transplantation method used, level of care and the extent of your hair loss, for example. Everyone’s situation is different, so it’s best to book a consultation, where you’ll be given all the information needed to help you make the right choice for you, including pricing.
How many grafts do I need for a beard transplant?
The number of hair grafts you need will depend on your goals and how much existing facial hair you have. For example, filling in a patchy beard requires less grafts than a complete beard transplant. The best place to start is a consultation with a Gro Hair Growth Specialist. Consultations can be done in-clinic or online.
