Beard Transplant

What If I Can’t Grow A Beard?

If you’ve tried time and time again to grow a beard but failed, don’t stress! All hope is not lost! Although beard transplants have been around for over a decade, it’s only recently that the number of men having the procedure has exploded as beard transplants have become more and more popular and more sophisticated in recent years.

You can achieve the ultimate, full and natural beard with a Gro beard transplant in Melbourne and Sydney. Just like normal hair implantation, the donor hairs for beard implantation come from your scalp – either the back or sides, wherever your hair is the densest. Depending on the look you are trying to achieve, a filling can be added to patchy areas, or you can go for a thick or sculpted beard.


Gro’s beard transplant technique gives you:

  • Natural results that look and feel great
  • Maximised results that last a lifetime
  • No scalpel, no stitches and no scarring
