Thanks to the hair transplantation practices that have become popular in recent years, it has become possible to easily transplant areas such as beard, mustache and sideburns. Beard transplant is applied if there is a shortage of hair follicles in these areas due to genetic or other reasons.

The basic explanation of beard transplant or implants is to make the beardless parts bearded by planting hair follicles. The hairs to be used in the transplantation process are usually taken from the back of the hair. At the same time, it is possible to take hair follicles from other suitable parts of the body.

These roots are then added to the beard roots. At this point, it is possible to say that a similar procedure is performed with hair transplantation. Just like in hair transplantation, the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. Problems such as beard, mustache, scars on sideburns, surgery scars, burn scars can be solved with a beard transplant or a mustache transplant. Transplantation is successful even if the beard, mustache or sideburns have not grown before.


How painful is beard transplant?

In beard transplantation, which is the process of planting the hair follicles taken from the nape area, the FUE technique and DHI technique are generally and mostly preferred. Satisfactory results cannot be obtained with the FUT method. The FUT method is a surgical incision method and therefore pain and pain may be felt. However, in FUE, it is performed without a scalpel using 0.6 to 0.7 mm fine-tipped needles during the removal of the grafts (the strip from which the hair root is taken). For this reason, local anesthesia is applied only for calmness and pain and pain are not felt after the procedure.

What is the success rate of beard transplant?

The beard transplant procedure is increasing day by day around the world and has an average success rate of 80-90%. The reason for such high rates is that there is no possibility of rejection because the hair follicles come from the patient’s own scalp, and the FUE technique is combined with the developing technology.

In the FUE technique, the roots are taken one by one with the help of a fine needle-tipped micromotor. It is then planted in the sparse area. In this way, removing the roots with thin micromotors allows you to finish the process without any cut marks. You should be careful not to expose the hair transplant area to direct sunlight for 7 to 14 days without strenuous activity.

It is not recommended to wet your face or shave for the first 7 days (transplanted area); this area will become red, swollen, and crust over each follicle. The crusts eventually dry up, itch and fall off. The donor site heals completely within the first 7 days after surgery. The transplanted hair follicles will fall out in about 4 to 6 weeks; follicles will start to grow again at 12 weeks and will continue to grow throughout life.
