Beard Transplant in Turkey

What the Beard Transplant Is?

Beard transplantation is a procedure that has started to see more and more demands in the recent years. The procedure is carried by transplanting a significant number of hair follicles taken from the back part of the scalp (donor area) to places where hair is sparse on men’s beards and mustaches. The procedure consists of almost the same steps as the normal hair transplant.

Beards can be fully or partially hairless due to various factors such as burns, various chin, mouth or teeth infections, traumas or simply genetic inheritance. It is in these areas that beard transplants can be performed. Of course, beard hair is not like head hair. Their densities are different.

For this reason, beard transplantation on different people is done differently according to specific conditions and needs. Normally it is completed under local anaesthesia and lasts a few hours. When doing a beard transplant, first we assess the patient’s condition of beard and donor areas. Then the hair roots are collected from the donor area (which is the back part of the head), separated and planted on the beard area. As this procedure is painless, everyone can easily get beards and mustaches with a natural appearance.

    How is the Procedure Carried?

    Here is a general summary of the steps followed when doing a beard transplant:

    Harvesting

    First of all, the donor area of your head (the area being harvested) is shaved in order to have a clear view of the hair follicles. Then you are given a local anaesthetics on the area processed so you do not feel any pain during the extraction of the hair.

    Implantation

    After the extraction process has been completed, the doctor will give you another local anesthetic on the area of the chin where the implantation will be made. This is done so you will not feel any pain there either. Once the anesthetic gives effect, the surgeon will first open the incisions on the beard and then start implanting all the follicles in the designated areas. The recipient areas are shaped beforehand according to your specific needs and desires, in consultation with the doctor.

    Recovery

    It will take you a day to recover from beard transplantation surgery. Small crusts can form around each newly implanted hair follicle. No need to worry as these will disappear within a few days.

    After 7 to 10 days, you will be able to start shaving normally and trim your new growing beard.

    However, a warning: After 14 to 21 days the new beard hairs may fall out. No need to worry as this is a normal thing to happen, as new hair will grow in, taking their place.

    Who Is a Good Candidate For Beard Transplant Procedure?

    Since hair follicles are taken from the back of the head, it is important to have healthy hair follicles in this specific area.

    As this location has a tendency to be among the last areas to become bald, even if you have started to lose some hair on the top side of the head, you probably still have healthy growth of the hair on the back of your head.

    The transplant doctor will examine the scalp and determine if there are enough hair units for the transplant to be carried out.

    In the rare cases when there is not enough hair follicles to be extracted, your doctor will recommend other alternative treatments to follow.
