THE beard transplant business is now absolutely booming, inspired by the stars such as Tom Hardy, David Beckham and Bradley Cooper.

What is a beard transplant?
While you may have heard of hair transplants, a beard transplant is also a popular procedure that can work wonders for thickening up facial hair.
A beard transplant is a fairly straightforward procedure with minimal downtime.
The technique involves removing tiny individual hair follicles from the back of the scalp (where the hair is thickest).
The follicles are removed in strips and then transplanted into any bald patches on the beard or sideburns.
Once the process is finished, the hair in the beard should start to grow immediately – with patients usually able to shave after just two weeks.
