Men opt for beard transplant surgery

February 28, 2014 Updated Feb 28, 2014 at 6:53 PM CDT

There’s a new trend that has some men paying a visit to the plastic surgeon.

Men unable to grow thick, bushy facial hair are now turning to beard transplants to get the popular look.

It is a pricey look, costing upwards of $7,000 depending on how much hair you are looking to transplant.

Here’s how it works: the hair is usually taken from the back of the head, sometimes the chest if balding is a concern, and then it's implanted on the bare section of the face.

But before you go for the full "Duck Dynasty" look, research indicates that women aren't really big fans of bushy beards.
