Beard Transplantation

An application for people who have lost a beard or who have not grown a beard.

Beard is one of the most important elements that supports aesthetic appearance and ensures that the criteria of masculinity are met for men. Lack of beards is considered a negative aesthetic for many men and can cause a lack of self-confidence. Some men may be beardless from birth, but it is also possible to face undesirable situations such as beard loss due to genetic reasons, drug use and some diseases. Effective results can be obtained thanks to beard transplantation, which is applied for men to get rid of this situation that can cause aesthetic and psychological problems for them.

In beard transplantation, hair follicles taken from the back of the person's hair or from another suitable part of the body are transplanted into the beardless areas of the face.

How is Beard Transplantation Performed?

In beard transplantation using the FUE method, the hairs on the cheekbones and neck, which are close to the beard area but are not aesthetically necessary, are used as donors. If enough grafts cannot be obtained from this area, it may be possible to use the hairs in the nape of the person. The reason for this is that the hair follicles taken from the nape area do not have the risk of creating any deprivation in this area.

After determining the area to be transplanted and how much hair follicle transplantation is required, the channel opening process is performed. Grooving is considered the most important stage of beard transplantation. The opened channels should be suitable for the width of the hair follicles to be planted and should be opened from the right angle. Thus, it is possible to obtain a natural appearance after beard transplantation.

After the channel opening process is completed, the determined number of grafts are taken one by one from the donor area by means of a micro motor. The beard transplantation is completed by placing the hair follicles taken into the opened channels one by one.

Who Is Beard Transplantation Suitable For?

Beard transplant;

  • Hair that does not grow in the beard area during adolescence,
  • Having little or no beard due to reasons such as infection or accident,
  • Having beard loss due to various reasons,
  • It can be applied to people who have regional sparseness or deficiencies in their beards.

Beard transplantation can be done in men from the age of 20-22, when the hormones are fully established and become regular. Beard transplantation is not recommended, as spontaneous beard growth may occur in people under this age, depending on the development process.

Healing Process After Beard Transplantation

After beard transplantation, vascularization increases naturally in the area where the transplantation is performed and redness may occur at the bottom of the hair follicles. This temporary situation resolves itself in a short time.

Since beard transplantation is performed on the sensitive face area, the healing process may be slightly longer compared to hair transplantation. In order to experience a fast and healthy healing process, care should be taken not to deform the transplanted hair follicles and activities that may cause sweating should be avoided. In this way, the hair follicles can hold on to their place and grow in a healthy way.

To avoid any contact with the hair follicles transplanted after the beard transplant application, tight-fitting clothes and scarves should not be used for a certain period of time. In order to accelerate the healing process, a nutrition program with a protein group with tissue repair properties and vitamins A, E, C, D, B7 and B12 can be applied.

After the beard transplantation, the patient should lie on his back for the specified period of time, and the transplanted area should not be in contact with the pillow as much as possible. With the shock shedding process experienced one month after the operation, the hair follicles are renewed and it can be seen that the beards start to grow again after a while.
