How Long Should I Wait To Get A Beard Transplant After Facial Surgery?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I am planning to have an approximately 2000 graft FUE scalp to beard transplant, covering basically the entire classic beard area.  With you, we have met and planned for several facial cosmetic surgeries some day later this year TBD. (e.g including IOM implants and sliding genio etc)

For scheduling purposes, I am wondering if there is a number of months I should wait before or after the surgeries with you to get the beard transplant.

A: I would allow for 3 months either before or after any facial surgery for doing a beard transplant.
