Beard Transplant in Turkey

What is a beard transplant?

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.

Types of beard transplant

Two different methods are used in beard transplantation. These are beard transplantation with FUE and FUT technique.

Follicular unit extraction (FUE)

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.

Follicular unit transplantation (FUT)

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.

Before beard transplant

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.

  • You need to stop drinking alcohol at least three days before the beard transplant. Alcohol consumption leads to a decrease in the healing performance of the area to be planted. It may also cause an increase in the rate of bleeding during the procedure.
  • At least one to two weeks before beard transplantation, you should stop using drugs that have blood thinning properties. For example, Aspirin, which is used by many people in daily life, is a drug with high blood thinning properties. If there is a medicine that you cannot stop due to health problems despite being a blood thinner, be sure to inform your doctor about it.
  • You need to stop smoking at least three days before the beard transplant. Similarly, we recommend that you do not start consumption again until two weeks after the procedure. Quitting this habit for a while will positively affect your healing process. Substances such as nicotine and tar found in cigarettes and other tobacco products can slow down the healing process and prevent you from getting results sooner.

After beard transplant

You will get the results of beard transplantation gradually. There are a few things you need to pay attention to in order for the results to be better in this process.

  • Water or chemicals should not touch the donor area until the first washing after hair transplant occurs. Especially the first three days are a very critical process for the transplantation grafts to attach to the skin.
  • You should stay away from all tobacco products, especially cigarettes, and alcohol for a week or two. Consumption of these products weakens the healing process and prevents the grafts from clinging more tightly to the skin.
  • Do not worry about the shock spillage process that will be experienced in the first month after planting. This is a very natural process that includes healing.
  • In case of crusting and itching that will occur after transplantation, it is extremely important that you do not scratch your beard and do not rub a hard object into the donor area.
