Beards are So Hot Right Now That People are Paying $15,000 for Beard Implants: VIDEO


Have you always wanted to grow a Grizzly Adams beard but can’t because of genetics? Well, there’s hope for you yet!

Meet Dr. Jamil Asaria, a plastic surgeon in the business of beard implants. He does about one beard implant for the folically-impaired a week. All it takes is $5,000 to $15,000, a 12-hour operation, a week of redness and swelling, a week of not shaving and voila — instant hipster-beard!

Beards have become quite stylish in the new millenium. There’s fonts made of beards, art made from beards, ramen bowls made of beards, beard clubs at high schools, beard magic tricks, beard porn (SFW) and even videos just featuring sexy dudes in beards all for your beard-loving enjoyment.

Of course, if you can’t grow a beard, you can always just buy this hat that comes with a beard attached.

  3. Utterly stupid and ridiculous. You got $15,000 to waste on a beard implant? I got a few places in this world where that $15,000 would feed a family of four for two years, or build three houses, or buy medicine for AIDs patients, etc. etc.

  5. There have always been beards on about 25 percent of men. I have had one for 30 years, long before it was a "fad". So have many, many of my friends.

    While I like them on some guys, I don't get what the fuss is about. This is not a new discovery.

  6. @ johnny it is the natural result of the pendulum swinging away from metrosexual

  9. $15K? Pfff. Just take your manscaping clippings and a bit of Super Glue...

  10. As if men silicon implants weren't bad enough.

  11. Swinging back and forth. First it was hairy, then it was tan and smooth, back to hairy, on and on.

  12. But Jamal, people who have $15K to indulge in conspicuous waste don't hang with folks who would be impressed by something humane and practical. They are slaves of corporate fads. Saying you gave that amount to house, feed, clothe or educate others anywhere--even the homeless gay kids close by where we live--does not gain points among hearers.

  13. So...maybe John Travolta should start his own business of providing long term "Beard" implantations for all his fellow heterosexually challenged Sci-Ti celebs.

  14. I'm a hairy fellow, often have to shave twice a day. But I don't like the aesthetics of it, or the logistics of maintaining a beard. Definitely don't want to get up-close and personal with it on someone else.

    Would gladly donate half my hairiness to one of these smoothlings.

  15. So wrong. Beards are on the cusp of yesterday. The beard fad has climaxed and is over.

  16. I wonder how much was paid for Michelle Bachmann.

  17. While I think it is utterly stupid to pay for beard implants or a transplant,I am thrilled that beards and body hair are more popular now. For way way too long smooth, hairless boys were in fashion and were not very manly. This is much more manly looking than shaved, plucked and waxed males. Also, take the Evans brothers as examples. Both look better wiht their beards. So I am happy it is the thing. I hope the pendulum broke in this swing! Oh and no need to wax your nuts to check for testicular cancer. Why would people buy that crap?

  18. Maybe they can grow them long enough to cover the fad tattoos.

  19. Beards won't enhance your masculinity. Sorry fellows. For some people it can enhance their appearance but please don't grow a beard to look more masculine or follow a trend.

    Time spent at a bear bar in NYC.

  20. This masculinity craze.. if you want the real experience, try going easy on the butt wipe. And remember, if you don't look like a picture on a box of cough drops you haven't got it down.

  21. I'm a naturally smooth guy who loves hairy chests- but I would never spend a cent for a chest hair transplant- rather cuddle with my naturally hairy boy friend

    Posted by: jarago | Apr 9, 2014 6:22:34 PM

  22. Now that this trend has finally jumped the shark, can we get back to shaving?

    Posted by: Randy | Apr 9, 2014 7:25:34 PM

  23. I like hairy, but REALLY?

    Posted by: Jerry | Apr 9, 2014 8:58:29 PM

  24. Reason number 425,339 the rest of the world hates us; wasting 15,000 on getting a beard transplant while massive numbers of children die from the lack of food and clean water.

  25. So not a fan of flavor savers.
