For the men who struggle to grow a full beard and mustache or for those who would like to try different beard and mustache styles as Hollywood stars do, beard and mustache transplant is the best and permanent solution.
What is Beard and Mustache Transplantation?
Beard and mustache transplantation is a procedure that restores hair to areas where spotty or patchy loss of hair occurs. Apart from transplanting hair on beard and mustache areas, it can also be performed on cheeks and sideburns.
