Facial hair transplants are one of the newest advances in the field of hair restoration. Millions of men from around the world have travelled to have a beard hair transplant in Turkey. Beard transplants are an ideal, permanent solution to patchy beards, they can also be used to cover up birthmarks, scars, or acne.
How Does A Beard Transplant Work?
Just like with a traditional hair transplant procedure, the first step is to assess the patient’s needs. A beard hair transplant can require anywhere from 4,000 to 7,000 hair grafts which must be extracted from a suitable donor area. Most commonly, this area is located at the back and sides of the head as it has the highest density of healthy hair follicles, though in some cases body hair may also be used. Most beard transplant procedures use the DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) method. DHI hair transplants offer the densest placement of implanted hair grafts, allowing for a thick, full beard.
Once a treatment plan has been agreed upon, the healthy hair grafts are removed one-by-one from the donor area. The hairs are then individually implanted into the patchy areas of the patient’s beard using a special Choi Implanter Pen. During this process, great care is taken to place the hair grafts evenly and in line with the natural angle and direction of the patient’s existing hair.
How Long Do Results Take?
A beard transplant is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that usually lasts no more than 5 hours. However, results will not be seen immediately. Patients are advised to rest and avoid any strenuous activity in the 3 days following the procedure as the hairs will need time to heal. After 3 days, patients may return to their normal routine.
In the first weeks after the transplant surgery, it is normal to experience swelling and redness at the transplant site, as well as dryness and itching at the donor area. It is also normal to experience “shock loss” where the newly transplanted hair will fall out. This is a normal part of the healing process.
Patients will begin to notice preliminary results after 2 to 3 months. However, final results will not become apparent until after at least 12 months. It is not uncommon for the entire regrowth process to take up to 18 months. This varies greatly depending on each patient’s rate of hair growth.
Who Can Receive A Beard Transplant?
Beard transplants are a viable treatment option for anyone over the age of 20 who has enough healthy hair follicles for transplantation. With modern DHI hair transplants and a skilled medical team, a full, natural beard can be achieved on almost anyone.
