Beard transplant, which has recently been in increasing demand with a longer history, is a form of hair transplantation applied to the face.
It is based on the transplantation of hair follicles taken from the scalp in areas of men’s beard and mustache, where hairs are sparse or absent.
WHICH CONDITIONS BEARD TRANSPLANT IS REQUIRED?
This procedure can be applied to the chin, cheeks, sideburn area and mustache area. This process can also be implemented to hide facial acne scars or other scars.
Loss of hair follicles in the beard and mustache area can occur for various reasons. This may be hereditary; laser epilation, needle epilation, surgical procedures or after burns.
In beard transplant, grafts can be densified, as well as areas without hair growth can be transplanted. Thus, the desired beard-mustache shape is tried to be reached.
The number of grafts to be used are around; 350-500 for the mustache, 600-700 for the chin area, 200-250 for sideburn, 300-700 for the cheek area.
HOW IS BEARD TRANSPLANT IMPLEMENTED?
The hair roots to be transplanted are taken from the nape or temple area. It is decided where the grafts are taken according to the condition of the hairs in the planting area. Grafts are taken from where the hairs in the region are more similar to those in the field to be planted. By the way, it should be noted that if the person who grows a beard will demand hair transplant in the future, the number of follicles to be used for hair transplantation will decrease. Because in hair transplantation and beard hair transplantation both,
the field where the grafts are taken is the same. The person who wants to grow a beard must consider this prospectively.
The color distribution, angle, and direction of the planted hairs should be well adjusted.
HOW TO IMPLEMENT BEARD TRANSPLANT?
Beard transplantation is performed under local anesthesia and sedation and lasts for 2-5 hours. The procedure is generally painless. After the procedure, tiny shells are observed around the transplanted roots. The planting area should be kept dry and not touched.
You will not need to shave for 10 days after the procedure. Therefore, you should have made the necessary arrangements in your workplace and social activities in terms of transaction timing.
On the second day after the procedure, non-coercive physical activities are allowed, and if the person comes from out of town, they are allowed to return home.
However, when you look at the face for another 4-5 days, it will be clear that a procedure has been done.
The hairs at the end of the transplanted grafts start to fall out after about two weeks, with nothing to worry about. After about three months, the hairs begin to grow again.
In order to avoid the failure of the procedure, infection, and scarring; you should do your post-maintenance care very well as instructed.
Follow your doctor’s advice before and after the procedure. This will ensure that the process goes smoothly and the best results are obtained.
