Beard and mustache transplants have given full facial hair customization to many patients, such as those who:

  • Can’t grow facial hair at all
  • Can develop facial hair in some spots naturally, but not in every area they want it
  • Only experience patchy, inconsistent facial hair growth
  • Are transgender and physically transitioning to male


But since hair transplantation is surgery, it’s important to plan exactly where you want the additional hair ahead of time to avoid extra follow-up treatments and an extended recovery. You’ll have plenty of options to consider when crafting your ultimate masculine look.


Mustache and Beard Transplants in the Bay Area

At Blackhawk Hair Restoration in Danville, California, we provide multiple types of hair rejuvenation treatments depending on patient needs and aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation, you will be seen by one of our hair restoration experts at our state of the art facility led by Dr. Stephen J. Ronan.

After carefully reviewing your medical history and observing your symptoms, we will also need to make sure you have enough donor hair available to obtain your desired look. Additionally, you’ll want to learn how the new hair on your face will complement your other facial features.

Based on these considerations, your objectives, and other patient-specific factors, your new style could include adding, reshaping, or enhancing one or more of these facial hair details: 



Of course, deciding whether or not you prefer to have hair above the upper lip is crucial. While some patients might only want to add the mustache, don’t forget that it also goes hand-in-hand with a goatee or beard (but not always). 



Chin hair is also on the front of the face (and an equally important part of the goatee). There are two main sections of chin hair: the medial pillar and the lateral pillars.

The medial pillar runs directly from the center of the bottom lip to the middle of the chin. Meanwhile, the lateral pillars extend down on either side from the corners of the mouth. You could add hair to just the medial pillar, the two lateral pillars, or all three.


Genian Area

Past the lateral pillars (before the sideburns) are the genian areas. These include all the hair on the cheeks, stretching down to the jawline. When planning your new beard, one thing to think about is how high you want the genian areas to go.



While sideburns on their own might not be as popular as they once were, they’re often a critical component of a rugged beard. Do you want them to be just as thick as your beard? Or should they get gradually thinner as they approach your scalp?
