Beard transplantation: Beard transplantation is performed in areas where the beard does not grow. This
can be for a number of reasons including scar tissue following an injury or a burn.
First, the area for beard transplantation is determined. A drawing of the aesthetic and natural shape of
the face of the person is prepared.
The number of follicles to be taken is determined and the transplantation areas is prepared. The
follicles to be transplanted to the beard are taken from the hairs on the cheekbones and from the nape
Beard hair is not like the hair on the head, its density can vary from person to person. If there is a
regional beard loss, the density of the beard is adjusted according to the follicles surrounding the area.
Between 1500-3000 follicles can be transplanted. Transplanting around 3000 follicles gives satisfactory
results. No problems should occur following the operation, how there may be redness around the
operation area for up to a week. Since the follicles are taken with tools that have a tip of 0.6-0.7 mm, no
scars are left.
The operation process requires attention and delicacy. The procedure will take about 4-5 hours,
depending on the plastic surgeon and the team. Before the procedure, local anesthesia is applied and
then the follicles are taken from the donor area. The operation is painless and comfortable for the
patient. The beard area is washed after 48 hours and you can shave after 30 days.
The results are natural. The marks after the operations may be visible for 10 days, however no one
can tell you have had an operation once the marks are gone.
Once the transplantation is complete, you must follow post operative care procedures. During the
recovery period, you must use the medications and preparations recommended by your doctor. Fifteen
days after the process, the beard sheds however it will start to grow back in the 2nd month. It can take
up to a year before the beard to completely established.
The moustache is the most important factors in the formation of male identity and it can cause serious
social problem for a person if it is missing. Thinning moustache, no hair growth in the area of the
mustache, scar tissue, all these problems may create an aesthetic problem for the person. In the case of
men not having hair on the upper lip or hair loss, the precise treatment is mustache transplantation.
A person may regret having a mustache transplantation if it has been badly performed. For this
reason, the person who will be operated must consult with the doctor and ask him questions and get
satisfactory answers. This shows the importance of consultancy.
The hairs to be transplanted are taken from the nape region. For this, individual hair roots are taken
with 0.6 mm punches using FUE method of extraction.
If only 2-3 grafts are transplanted, the moustache created is very disappointing especially after
shaving. Therefore the transplantation density must be in a way that allows the follicles to be nourished.
Local anesthesia is applied to the area before the operation. The duration of the operation
performed by applying the FUE technique varies according to the volume of the area to be transplanted.
After the local anesthesia performed in the area where the moustache or beard is to be planted, the
channels where the follicles will be placed by the expert are carefully opened with the lateral slit
technique according to the direction of natural beard and moustache. If the transplantation is
performed in this way the results are pleasing even after shaving with a razor.
After the operation, especially the first 3 days the mustache area must be protected.Any movement
that may cause irritation and damage should be avoided. It is natural to observe redness for the first 3-4
days following the operation and this can continue until the end of first month.The redness will become
scabs and after a week later, it will continue healing. Do not neglect to apply creams to prevent scabbing
after the mustache transplantation. You can start shaving after 30 days. After 2 months, the hair starts
to grow in the area where the transplantation has been performed and all the moustache grow back
within one year.
Moustache transplantation is not like hair transplantation. It is absolutely essential to have an
experienced team of surgeons carry out this procedure.
