Beard Transplant

Beard plays a big role in men’s appearance. It has become widely popular as a result of the success in hair transplant procedures. It can be performed in order to increase the density of a patchy beard, or to provide a full beard.

There may be numerous reasons of not having beard such as genetics, physical traumas, scars or burning. For these problems, beard transplant is a permanent solution.

How is beard transplant performed?

The medical protocol is the same as a hair transplant procedure. Certain amount of follicles are extracted from your donor area (area between your ears, also called occipital) and they are implanted into the pre-designed beard or mustache area. FUE method is utilized which consists of extraction and implantation of the follicles one by one. The hair in the back of the head resembles to the beard, which provides a successful natural result.

The incision (canal) part of the procedure is very important. The incisions are made in an angle and direction that imitates the original beard, so the patient can have a natural looking beard.

The number of grafts depends on your actual condition. If you have a patchy beard that needs to be denser, around 1000-1500 grafts may be enough, on the other hand in order to provide a full beard one can need around 4000-5000 grafts.

How is the process after a beard transplant?

It is pretty much the same as a hair transplant. There are a few important steps to follow. You should avoid facial expressions for 3 days and try to consume liquid or soft foods in order to protect the newly implanted grafts. It is also very important to sleep on your back, so the grafts are not dislodged.

Another important thing is the special washing regimen of your beard for 10 days, which will be explained to you with all its details by our medical team.

It is not recommended to cut or trim the implanted beard during the healing process, as it can create damage. Usually this process takes 3 to 6 months, but do not hesitate to contact with your doctor to have her idea if you want to shave or trim your beard. If you follow the important steps for aftercare, you can easily have a successful result.

What should I consider to choose a clinic?

The first thing to do is to find out if the clinic that you consult has a proper medical doctor or not. In order to avoid all the risks of complications, it should be performed in a well equipped clinic under supervision of doctor with an expert team.

In our clinic, all of the hair transplant procedures are carried out under supervision of our Dermatologist Dr. Oyku Celen in her own clinic who is also the co-founder of our company. She personally realizes the consultation and makes the planning of the procedure with the patient. While her expert team performs the surgery, she is present in the operation theatre and supervises each and every step to provide the best result possible.

There is not such specialty as “Hair Transplant Specialists” in Turkey, neither in any other country. Many clinics claim they have these “specialists” who are not even doctors in reality. These personel are either nurses, or people that do not have any medical background. For this reason, you should know the doctor well. Even if it is a procedure that only requires local anesthesia, only a doctor can know how to handle such possible complications. On the other hand, the ambient and equipment is also very important. It should be performed in a well equipped and sterilized operation rooms.

Beard Transplant Questions

It is very normal to have slight loss or lack of density in both recipient and donor area due to the trauma made. This is a side effect of beard transplant and it heals in a few months. This process is called “Telogen Effluvia”, during which your native hair becomes thinner. It should not worry you, as it is a natural process and heals through time.

1 week before your procedure, you should stop taking any herbal supplements such as gingko biloba, ginseng, fish oil, saw palmetto, vitamin E or any other blood thinners that may increase bleeding directly or indirectly. Other than these, if you take any medication regularly, please consult your doctor. Please do not consume alcohol from 3 days before the procedure. On the day of your procedure, we recommend you to wash your hair, have a good breakfast and stay hydrated.

Nowadays thanks to well developed FUE technique, it is possible to transplant thousands of grafts and have natural results with high density. The most determinative points in this subject are doctor’s experience, and the capacity of your donor area.

It is essential to plan the treatment well. We receive the photos and medical history information from you, and our doctor prepares the treatment plan. Many hair transplant clinics are “sales oriented”, therefore they usually claim that it is possible to provide a coverage for a very large recipient area. In this case, we can easily say that hair transplant should have an individual plan. There are very important points in planning such as:
  • Size of recipient area
  • Capacity of donor area
  • Quality and density of native beard
Thick, dark colored and curly hair is a better concealer and occupy more surface on your scalp than thin, light colored and straight hair. If the patient has a large recipient area it is possible to distribute the follicles through the recipient area or to implant them at high density in half of the recipient area. In both cases patient would need more than one session in order to have a decent coverage.

The amount of hair follicles to be transplanted depends on your need, and the capacity of your donor area. It is also very important to have good quality, thick and strong grafts. For example, two patients that both had 3500 grafts can have different results. If one of the patients have more multiple grafts that have 3-4 hairs and the other one has less multiple grafts, such as grafts with 1 or 2 hairs, the results will be very different. One will have 5000 hair strands and the other one 10.000-11.000.

After your procedure, your implanted hair will start to grow in the 3rd month. In the 6th month you will have approximately 50% of the result and your hair will be thickening every day. Usually patients have the full result in one year, whereas this may also take longer up to 18 months.

Yes, it is possible. However, you should consider that it is very important if you have enough donor area capacity. It may not be enough for providing a coverage both in the scalp and the beard. Please consult your doctor to make sure.

If it was not done correctly, yes there will be a scarring in your donor area. Especially in patients that need high numbers of grafts, some clinics over harvest the donor area and this causes a patchy look, which can not be reversed. For this reason we always recommend you to choose a clinic with a proper medical doctor and an expert medical team.

You should take your medications and use your headband and other stuff as instructed in the post-op consultation. You should follow all the post-operation instructions – which are not that complicated – to have the best result possible.

Price should be the second thing to worry. We always recommend you to set your aim as finding the “most experienced” clinic rather than the “cheapest” clinic. This is a medical procedure even though it is performed under local anesthesia. It is a procedure that will change your life and will affect you in every aspect. Once you receive your medical evaluation from the clinics that you chose, you can compare them to each other to see which one is the best. If possible you can talk to people that had beard transplant in those clinics. The best clinic is not the cheapest, nor the most expensive.

In a Sapphire FUE procedure, incisions (canals) and implantation are two different phases of the surgery. In a DHI procedure, implantation and incisions are made at the same time with the implanter pens.

It would not be correct to say DHI is a better option for every patient, as there are many clinics that claim it is better for marketing purposes. For those who would like to have higher density without completely bald recipient area, it can be a good option. Click here for more information.
