58th case: 1124 FUE - Beard reconstruction


- 33 years old.
- No medications.
- Medium caliber hair.
- Fragile follicular units.

- High % of hair in telogen phase.


Here is a very nice example about how a well-framed beard can change a man's look.

This 33-year-old gentleman reported a lack of beard hair, particularly noticeable on his cheeks. This is related to a congenital situation, since both his father and brother suffer from the same condition.

In order to cover these empty areas with a fair density, we decided to perform an FUE consisting in 1000/1200 grafts – eventually resulting in an 1124 FUE procedure. Among these, 187 grafts were taken from his beard donor, while the other 937 were harvested from the traditional donor area.

The patient came back to our offices for a check-up at the 7th post-op month mark, and submitted additional pictures one year and two months after the procedure. Please find them below.


- 1024 grafts

- Technique: FUE

- FUE scoring and extractions executed with my WAW system, now widely used in the sphere of FUE. It consists of a very precise pedal that enables to control the movement of the punch, that I also designed myself. The main advantage is to reduce substantially the number of damaged and transected hair, thus to raise the quality of the procedure. The system is now used worldwide and several dozens of surgeons or centres are already using it.

Grafts Breakdown:
