For centuries facial hair has been the mark of true masculinity. It made men feel empowered and whole, whether with a full beard or mustache alone. But not all men can grow their beards. Some suffer from skin-related diseases or genetic disorders that won't allow them to grow a beard.

Most patients experiencing difficulties growing facial hair will try essential oils or medication to stimulate facial hair growth. But beard transplant in Turkey is a one-time treatment for natural-looking facial hair.

Beard Hair Transplant Treatment Recovery Time

After six days, patients can continue moderate exercise, such as weight lifting. They can resume their swimming exercises ten days after the procedure. On the sixth day, they can start washing their face.

After the beard transplant treatment, you start noticing minor improvements daily. You can return to work 1-2 days after the beard transplant. And you can begin shaving eight days after the procedure. 

How is Facial Hair Transplant Procedure Performed?

During a facial hair transplant procedure:

  1. Consultation and Planning: Initially, the surgeon evaluates the patient's needs and plans the transplant accordingly, marking the areas for transplantation.
  2. Harvesting Donor Hair: Hair follicles are harvested from a donor site, usually the back of the scalp, where hair growth is dense.
  3. Preparation of Donor Hair: The harvested follicles are prepared under a microscope to ensure they are healthy and suitable for transplantation.
  4. Local Anesthesia: The recipient area (face) is numbed using local anesthesia to reduce discomfort during the procedure.
  5. Creating Recipient Sites: The surgeon creates small incisions or sites in the recipient area where the new hair follicles will be placed. The incisions mimic natural hair growth patterns for a natural-looking result.
  6. Transplanting the Hair Follicles: The prepared hair follicles are individually transplanted into the incisions in the recipient site.
  7. Closing and Dressing: Once all the follicles are transplanted, the incisions are closed, and the area is dressed to protect and aid healing.
  8. Recovery: The patient is then allowed to recover, with the transplanted hair growing in the recipient areas over the coming months.

The procedure aims to provide a natural-looking enhancement to the facial hair using the patient's hair follicles, following the natural direction of hair growth to ensure congruity with existing facial hair.

What to Expect After a Beard Transplant Procedure

  • In the first 3-4 days after the surgery, treatment marks will still be visible on your beard area. But the good part is that you can start to do your daily routines during this period.
  • You are advised not to wash your beard area in the first five days after the surgery. 
  • Expect most transplanted hair to shed off during the second and third weeks.
  • If the procedure is performed using the FUE technique, your surgeon won't use a surgical suture, but if it's carried out using the FUT method, you can expect absorbable sutures.
  • Feeling numb or tingling in the treated area is normal for several weeks.
  • You can expect to see some results after 2 or 3 months, but you are advised to start shaving your beard six months post-surgery.

Beard Transplant Side Effects Risks

  • Infections
  • Pain and tenderness
  • Bleeding
  • Itching and swelling
  • Inflammation of hair follicles (folliculitis)

Beard Transplant Surgery Results

Most patients report a high satisfaction rate, and beard hair transplant has a high survival rate and a success rate of 90% - 95%.

How To Prepare For Beard Hair Transplant 

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirin and any other medication that causes blood thinning.

  • If you are allergic to drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.

  • Avoid smoking before the surgery.

  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So it would be best if you did not take alcohol before surgery.

  • Follow your doctor-prescribed medication that adjusts your current medicines.
