A beard transplant is sought by men to restore hair in areas on the face where it is missing or thin. There has been a significant increase in the number of men opting for a beard transplant, and these specialist procedures are only carried out by the highest quality of specialist surgeons. There are various reasons as to why a patient may seek a beard transplant, including lost hair from a skin infection or disease, genetics, or scarring in the beard which has resulted in the beard growth becoming patchy or missing.
At Longevita, we offer two different techniques for our beard transplant in Turkey, including FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) and FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation). FUE involves removing follicles from healthy hair in the scalp, and grafting it onto the facial areas that lack the density and fullness required by the patient. FUE is generally a preferred method as it minimises the chance of scarring. FUT however, harvests a strip of skin from a healthy part of the scalp such as the back or sides, and transfers these hair follicles onto the face through a number of grafts. Our expert surgeons can help to ensure careful placement of the grafts to help with a natural appearance, focusing mainly on angle and direction.
Once the beard transplant has been completed and the new hair follicles have grown back, your new beard can be shaved, trimmed and groomed as you please, without leaving any baldness or patches. The results of our beard transplant in Turkey is permanent, and a difference can be seen immediately, although it can take up to a few months for the results to be final. Different styles of beard transplant require a different number of grafts, and our surgeons will match the best technique with your desired outcome.
Beard transplant, also known as facial hair transplant, is a medical procedure that is performed to increase beard density or restore lost beard hair.
Beard Hair Loss
Scarring, genetics or medical conditions such as Trichotillomania or some type of skin infection like ringworm may result in patchy look or the loss of beard hair. There are many studies which suggest that most men are not happy with the patchiness or non-existence of beard hair. Moreover facial hair is a sign of masculinity in some cultures; therefore, it has a great importance for men. As a result, men suffering from the loss of beard hair start looking for a solution to their problem. Nowadays tens of thousands of people are seeking for beard transplant for cosmetic reasons. Hollywood stars growing beards have led many people with beard loss problem to undergo beard transplant treatment.
Beard transplant provides a great opportunity to have a dense and full beard for men who wish to change the way they look and restore their beard hair. Beard transplant is a minimally invasive procedure and patients go back to their home on the same day and return to their daily life in a couple of days.
How is Beard Transplant Performed?
Although most doctors prefer Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique for beard transplant, a few doctors still use Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) technique. Given that FUE technique is a scar-less one and recovery after the procedure is much faster, most patients usually go for FUE. Minimally invasive FUE technique includes harvesting follicular grafts from the back of the scalp similar to the practice in regular hair transplant surgeries. Harvested hair grafts are then transplanted in the facial area where the patient would like more density. The beard transplant procedure is performed under local anaesthesia and the patient does not feel any discomfort during the surgery except for the injections.
Like eyebrow transplant, beard transplant depends on the surgeon’s skills very much. The more skilled the surgeon is the better outcome may be expected from the beard transplant surgery. The surgeon needs to be very careful during the transplantation of the grafts and he needs to apply his artistic skills so that the result is natural and there is not any scar. The surgery is usually expected to take between three to nine hours depending on the number of hairs to be transplanted. If the transplantation size is big, more grafts will be required therefore the surgery will take longer. A goatee for example may require 1,000-1,500 grafts whereas a full beard may require more than 3,000 grafts.
Just like in scalp hair transplant, the results of beard transplants are also permanent and will look natural. However it should be known by people considering beard transplant that it may take up to a few months to see the final results. It is normal to see some shedding of transplanted grafts a couple of weeks after the beard transplant procedure but new and stronger grafts will grow in time.
