What is Beard Transplant?

Beard transplant is the process of transplanting the hair follicles taken from the body parts (usually cheekbones, neck and nape) that are deemed appropriate in the facial area of men. Beard transplantation is similar to hair transplantation. The beard transplantation procedure, which is applied under local anesthesia, is transplanted into the beardless area.

As it is well known, the beard is very important for men. Beard transplant procedures are performed by specialist doctors working in the same clinics with hair transplants. The beard transplant process is very similar to the steps in the hair transplantation process.

How is Beard Transplant performed?

Beard transplant can be applied just as FUE or DHI method hair transplant. In general, in these two methods, the transplantation process starts with determining the donor area. It is generally preferred to collect hair on the neck as the donor area. Since the removal of hair follicles in the nape area will not cause any problems, it is preferred to remove the hair follicles here. Therefore, there is no need to worry if hair follicles are removed from this area.

The second step in the realization of beard transplantation is to determine the area to be transplanted and how many hair follicles should be transplanted to the site. After these are determined, channel opening is performed on the area to be planted. One of the essential parts of the transplantation process is the channel opening process.

The reason for this is that the width of the hair follicles to be planted is suitable, a factor that directly affects the average growth of the beard. After channel opening, grafts are taken from the donor area. The previously determined number of grafts are taken one by one from the donor area with a very thin device called "micromotor." Afterwards, the hair follicles taken are placed in previously opened channels for transplantation. Thus, the beard transplantation process is completed.

What should be considered about Beard Transplantation?

If you are considering a beard transplant, there are certain points to be considered. These are:

The person who will perform the beard transplant must be an expert therapist who is a trained and competent hair transplant specialist.

Get information about the technique to be used in beard transplantation. Choose one of the DHI or FUE methods.

Be sure to check the authorization documents of the clinic you want to have a beard transplant. Because they must have certificates in order to perform operations such as hair, beard and mustache transplant.

In addition to the things that we mentioned above, you can also examine the operations that you chose before. You can also view previous customer reviews and browse reviews of former customers of the clinic on Google.

The Process After Beard Transplant

Beard transplantation is a procedure performed under local anesthesia and sedation. This process, which takes an average of 2 to 5 hours, is mostly painless. It is generally observed that tiny crusts are formed around the transplanted roots after the procedure. The cheek area where beard transplant takes place should be kept dry and not touched after transplantation.

In addition, it should not be shaved for 10 days after the procedure. For this reason, you can take care of the beard transplant process in terms of choosing the right and most available time.
