Taking It On The Chin - Rise In Beard Transplants

POSTED: 18 March 2014

You may have seen further media coverage for Crown Clinic over the weekend.

There were pieces in the Daily Star Sunday and Daily Mail Online on the new trend for men to have beard transplants.

Our surgeon Asim Shahmalak was quoted in both pieces. 

You can read the Mail piece here:


Dr Shahmalak is one of the few surgeons in the UK qualified to carry out beard and sideburn transplants.

The pictures in the Mail Online piece show one of Crown Clinic's patients - a lovely Irish farmer who wanted help boosting his sideburns.

You can see from the pictures on Mail Online how effective his treatment was at Crown Clinic.

The procedure is very simple: a strip of hair is taken from the back or side of the scalp,  and the hair harvested from this strip is transplanted into the beard area.

It means that men with thin or patchy beards can have full beards - like stars such as Ben Affleck and Hugh Jackman who have made the hirsuit look so fashionable.
