Beard transplantation is the process of transplanting the hair taken from the nape of the neck into regional cavities such as cheeks and above the lips and in areas where beards are sparse. Beard transplant, which can also be done for the implementation of the desired beard model, can also be carried out to tighten the existing beard.
In some parts of the beard area on the faces of men, beards may not grow for various reasons. Since this causes deformity, it creates negative effects for the person. Beard transplantation is an application that gives a definitive solution in such cases. With this planting, the problem is eliminated with the applications made in areas where the beard does not grow or the beard is sparsely grown.
Two different methods are used in beard transplantation. These are beard transplantation with FUE and FUT technique.
In this procedure, hair grafts are removed from the donor area. Then it is harvested using a small circular incision. Your doctor will then transplant the hair follicles he has collected to the area where you need them. In FUE, the surgeon usually collects one of five follicles. But this varies depending on the doctor and the quality of the hair transplant. The procedure takes approximately 3-5 hours. It leaves small round spots from which the hair follicles are removed. Some clinics do this manually. Others use mechanical aids. This type of sowing has a faster recovery time than other options. In addition, the risks and complications are very small.
The other primary type of transplantation preferred in beard transplantation is the follicular transplant unit. During this procedure, your doctor removes a small piece of tissue from your donor area. Then it closes the wound tip. These wounds will leave a small mark on you. However, these marks are too small to be seen by the eye. Beard transplantation with the FUT method takes a little longer than the FUE method. But it always ends in a denser beard. Because in this process, a much larger number of hairs are usually transplanted.
Beard transplantation can be carried out with the aim of tightening the beard or creating an aesthetic beard style on a completely beardless surface. In both cases, you should pay attention to the following before the procedure.
