If you live in the Los Angeles area, there are quite a few doctors that do this including myself and some being on this forum. Do some research and see a few other doctors before making a decision.

Scalp to Beard Hair Transplant
scalp to beard is not one of those procedures that is done every day in most practices. I personally have done several successfully but since it is involved showing the face we could not show any on our website due to the patient requests.
beard hair transplant is very meticulous and specialized. It requires highly developed technique and artistic ability. There are many parts to any hair transplant procedure, one is the harvesting technique, the handing of the grafts, trimming the grafts under the microscope, the incisions made in the recipient area and the implanting of the units into the incisions. the doctor that you chose has to have experience in all aspects of the procedure not only the extraction.
Because the incisions are made in the facial area they have to follow the direction and orientation of your own hair and other facial contours. In addition, the incisions need to be made by very small customized needles and hairs cut into ultra refined units to give the most natural result. The follicular units that are extracted have to be handed properly and cut under the microscope and trimmed and stored properly. They have to also be implanted in a timely manner so the grafts survive and do not die. There are many more steps that are involved in the procedure and if any of the steps is overlooked and is not done right, the possibility of poor growth or unnatural result is high.
Seeking Doctors for FUE Beard Transplants
We have been doing FUE longer than any medical group in the world. We started to do them in 1996 and published the first articles on this procedure in 2002. The FUE procedure took off after our seminal article on the technique. We have done many, many FUE procedures on many body parts. You are welcome to visit us if you are in Los Angeles.

Beard Transplants Surgeons
I've done plenty but I'm in Boston. I can set up a Skype consult if you like. Beard transplants tend to be complicated for several reasons. Good graft selection is key. We do FUE followed by careful graft selection and trimming. We then use specialized implanters to place singe grafts one at a time into the face where beard hair is desired.
