What is Beard Transplantation?

To reduce the sparseness of the hair on the skin surface, the transplantation of hair follicles taken from the nape to these areas is called beard transplantation. This operation is like popular hair, mustache and eyebrow transplants. In other words, it is the transfer of hair follicles taken from the same person to the area with beard sparseness. It is important that the person to be treated and the people whose hair follicles are taken are the same. Because tissue compatibility is a first-degree success factor for transplantation. It is also very unlikely that the hair follicles taken from different people will adapt. On the other hand, since the beard structure is also related to the skin structure of the people, the transplants taken from another person do not work.

Factors such as injuries, spills, diseases, and no hair are the reasons for the operation. You should choose an alternative according to which need you want to apply this process. For example, the operation for a small surface and the operation for the entire surface are different.

Then, under the leadership of your doctor, you should pay attention to what you need to do before and after the operation.

How is Beard Transplantation Performed? What are the methods?

If the individual wants his beard to look like, he expresses it to his doctor. These requests can be limited to a single area, or they can be spread over the surface where no hair is seen. Or the individual may also demand that it leave a natural impression, which is a return to its previous state. All these determine the course of the process. Although there are more developed methods compared to the past, many beard transplantation operations are applied today.

  • Fue / Sut Methods: It is an application that has gained popularity in hair transplantation but is rarely preferred in beard and mustache transplantation. It is preferred that it does not leave a scar on the face and does not cause pain. Leaving no scars also speeds up the healing process. At the beginning of its disadvantages is that it does not create density between the hairs. Since it does not give a more intense visuality, it cannot capture the natural image. For this reason, it is mostly used in regional planting processes.
  • Fut Method: The hair follicles to be transplanted are taken from the person in 2 cm thick strips with the help of anesthesia. Then, it is transplanted at a right angle to the place where planting is required. However, since the removal of the hair root is a deep process, the probability of leaving a scar is also high. At the same time, since the transplant phase of the hair takes place vertically, the extension does not give a natural appearance. In addition to all these, it is preferred because it is a deep process, because the hair that grows in groups is dense.
  • MicroGraft Method: It is the newest beard transplantation method used today. Most of the past does not bring with its negativities. First of all, they remove the hair follicles from the back of the individual’s ear without causing any pain and suffering. Then, they bring the strong and durable cells in the hair follicles to a special structure with the regenera activa system. Finally, the suspensions in which the cell is transformed without any damage are transferred to the area. It is a natural process prepared directly from one’s hair. It also ends in a single session without taking much of your time and the area adapts to the operation very quickly.

Whether all operations are completed in a single session or in several sessions, the sessions generally do not exceed 3 hours. Considering the person’s body and wishes, it is decided which application will be made.

Stages of Beard Transplantation

There are different alternatives for sowing made according to the individual’s request. However, the important thing in this process is the wishes of the individual. Because it is a process done for the completion of external vision rather than a health need. After deciding on the most suitable beard transplant, those who want to have the operation wonder about the application stages. Although it is not a major health problem, the fact that anesthesia will be applied in the planting process leads individuals to worry. In addition, because it affects the external appearance, most of them are nervous. However, all these can be overcome by choosing the right method and knowing how the application will take place.

  • First of all, you should be examined by a specialist doctor for the planting area you want. Because the individual who wants to have a transplant and the doctor meet here and the decision of all the procedures to be done is finalized in this examination environment.
  • Then, the amount of hair follicle transplant to the controlled area is determined and the area to be transplanted is decided.
  • The specialist doctor creates a suitable date and time for the operation.
