Beard Transplant

Table of Contents

Beard transplantation is an effective solution in cases where beards do not grow due to genetic factors or various diseases. Beard transplantation is performed with hair follicles taken from the hairy areas if the hair in the beard or mustache area is sparse or absent. It is possible for men to achieve the appearance they desire with beard transplantation, an operation that does not carry any risk and has high success rates. The operation is performed under local anesthesia, so patients do not feel any pain.

On the other hand, since the sparseness of the beard or the shape of the face is different, the operation needs to be planned individually. Thanks to the digital 3D technologies used today, patients can have information about the image after beard transplantation. This eliminates the risk of dissatisfaction after the operation. As a matter of fact, the comments of those who have beard and mustache transplantation are mostly positive. So how is beard transplantation done? What should patients pay attention to after beard transplantation? How much are beard transplant prices?

What is Beard Transplantation?

The process of transplanting hair follicles taken from the back of the hair or from any suitable area in the body to the beardless or mustache-free areas in the face area is called beard transplantation or mustache transplantation. In fact, this procedure is similar to hair transplantation. Thanks to beard transplantation, it is possible to intensify areas that are sparse in terms of beard or mustache. It is a widely preferred operation in recent years because it provides a natural appearance, so success rates have also increased. For beard transplantation, the FUE method known as Follicular Unit Extraction or FUT techniques, also known as Follicular Unit Transplantation, are used. In both methods, hair follicles are removed one by one and transplanted into sparse areas. All men can achieve the look they desire with beard and mustache transplantation.

Beard Transplantation with FUE Method

The steps and advantages of hair transplantation with the FUE method, which is more widely used than the FUT method, are as follows:

  • After determining the areas for the hair follicles to be taken before transplantation, the patient is placed under local anesthesia,
  • All hair follicles are removed one by one from the designated graft area using special tools with micro motor,
  • Hair follicles examined under a microscope are transplanted to sparse areas in the beard and mustache area if they are not problematic,
  • No sutures are required after the operation, so the healing process is also fast.

One of the most important reasons why the FUE method is preferred more frequently than the FUT method is that it is a less invasive method.

I had surgery 2 weeks ago by Dr Yucel Sarialtin. I have been to almost every doctor in Istanbul, but this doctor is so spontaneous and gives so much attention to his patient, I immediately felt good. I've had a Tummytuck 360 Lipo and BBL! What a great result I couldn't have imagined it better! Dear people please find the right doctor!!! Because I also had the same operation in 2019, but this doctor mutilated me, and Yucel Sarialtin had to correct this again, which of course makes the operation more difficult. I recommend this doctor 100%! & of course his team also lots of kisses to Buse Bayram Aysegul who helped me through this period

Beard Transplantation with FUT Method

The advantages of the FUT method, which is a less preferred method among those who have beard transplantation, are as follows:

  • The patient is anesthetized locally,
  • An area is usually chosen at the back of the head and a strip of tissue is removed,
  • Separation of the extracted tissue strip into hair follicles takes place under a microscope,
  • The separated hair follicles are transplanted to sparse areas in the beard and mustache area,
  • The main advantage of this method is that more hair follicles can be harvested at the same time.

The only disadvantage of beard transplantation with FUT is that there is a stitch scar after the operation. Therefore, the comments of those who have beard transplantation are that the FUE technique is more advantageous.

Why Is Beard Transplantation Performed?

Having little or no beard and mustache depends on many different reasons. Although being beardless or mustache-less is usually attributed to genetic factors, the following reasons can cause beard loss:

  • Irregular and unhealthy eating habits,
  • Conditions such as anxiety, stress, depression,
  • Diseases of the skin,
  • Hormonal irregularities and disorders,
  • Impacts caused by trauma or accidents,
  • Burns or wounds.

As a matter of fact, the answer to the question "How is beard transplantation?" is usually related to these reasons. Because the method to be used during beard transplantation is also decided in the light of these reasons. Thus, the results obtained after beard transplantation are as the patients want.

How Is Beard Transplantation Performed?

For beard hair transplantation and all other methods, hair and beard analysis should be performed by expert staff to determine the needs of the person. In this way, a personalized treatment plan can be created directly. At the same time, the number of hair follicles to be taken can also be determined correctly. After the preliminary examination, the steps followed in beard transplantation are as follows:

  • Hair follicles are collected individually or in strips from the nape area with the FUE Gold technique or FUT technique,
  • Since beards consist of single hairs, the hair follicles are subjected to a separation process,
  • Transplantation is performed at the points determined in the beard and mustache area,
  • Since beard transplantation causes a condition known as shock shedding, temporary shedding is experienced 4 weeks after the beard transplant operation,
  • Beards start to grow much stronger 3 to 6 months after the operation.

Screening the general health status of the person before beard transplantation and identifying potential risks affect the success of the beard transplant operation. Therefore, it should be investigated whether patients are suitable for beard transplantation. So how long does beard transplantation take? Although this situation varies depending on the method to be used or the condition of the person, it is around 7 to 8 hours on average.
