Beard Transplant: what is it?
It is a surgical procedure that involves transferring the hair from the sides or back of the scalp (donor area) to the face. It is the same principle as a classical hair transplant. There are three methods which are:
- FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction): this is the most used technique. It consists of taking grafts follicle by follicle.
- FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation): it is performed through the removal of a strip of the skin from the back of the head. This technique requires a long time of healing with risk of failure of the intervention.
- DHI Gold Plus (Direct Hair implantation): performed through the removal of grafts follicle by follicle (maximum 2,500 follicles), using a gold-tipped tool, without shaving your head and beard, new technique discovered by one of our partner clinics.
Turkey is very renowned in cosmetic surgery and especially beard transplant.

Beard graft makes possible to correct the scars, balance the quantity of the hair as well as harmonize the features of the lower face.
Before the operation
A meeting between the patient and the surgeon takes place at least two weeks before the operation to take pictures that allow the surgeon to decide the number of follicles to transferred (between 500 and 3000) and therefore the price of the beard transplant. In addition, a blood test must be done before the procedure.

It is important to have achievable expectations as each person possesses different aesthetic requirements.
Beard transplantation is always performed under local anesthesia. This will allow the patient not to feel pain throughout the operation. Anesthesia is injected directly into the beard and neck. This will make both sides completely numb and prevent the patient from having painful sensations during the surgery. With good anesthesia, the entire transplant operation will be totally painless.
Complications and side effects after beard transplant are rare. Some minor complications may occur, such as:
- Infection: it is rare in this kind of intervention since the therapy includes the administration of antibiotics or another surgery.
- Telogen Effluvium: Loss of beard hair may occur in areas close to the transplanted areas. The situation will be normal after about 3 months because the facial hair that has fallen will grow back together with those transplanted.
- Edema and ecchymosis: they can last from 4 to 7 days.
- Poor growth: it may happen that the growth rate is unsatisfactory. In this case, it should be investigated whether the patient observed the loss of some grafts in the first week after surgery, if he smoked secretly or if there was an effluvium of pre-existing beard hair. Before drawing conclusions, it is recommended to wait at least one year since the late growth of transplanted beard hair can also be significant. In some cases, there may be no obvious cause of poor growth.
For beard transplant, you need to follow some criteria. This is because the hormones, that make facial hair strong and resistant, must reach a certain level. Experts consider the ideal age for beard transplantation to be a minimum of 20 years old.
The formation of redness and slight bleeding following surgery is common after beard transplantation. Your skin will return to its normal condition after being cleaned. Thanks to the use of high-quality equipment for this type of intervention, the surgery leaves neither marks nor scars.
Starting from the sixth month, you can see the final result of the surgery.
