                                       Beard Transplant Details

Beard transplantation is also a type of hair transplantation in which the hairs taken from the donor area (sides and back of your head), and then they are implanted into the recipient areas such as the upper lip and cheeks, and in areas where beards are sparse or absent. This process can be changed according to need of the patient. If shedding has occurred or if it has never come out in a certain area, implanting is performed within the patchy area of beard. Depending on the person’s face, the number of implanted grafts can go from 2000 to 5000 grafts per operation.

How Is Beard Transplantation Done?

Beard transplantation may vary according to the sparseness of the person himself. That’s why the beard transplant process begins with a high-tech computerized hair analysis by our expert and experienced staff. It is important that the preliminary examination is comprehensive in order to correctly determine the number of grafts to be collected and transplanted.

On the Day of Beard Transplant Operation:

-Blood analysis will be done to see if the person has HIV or Hepatitis C.

– Local anesthesia will be injected in order not to feel any kind of pain.

-Grafts are collected from the donor area one by one.

– Donor grafts from hairs can be comprised of 2, 3 or 5 grafts. Before implanting, they will be divided into single units as beard hair units are one.

-After division of the follicles, DHI beard implant will start.

-After about four weeks, some of the grafts transplanted as a beard experience a temporary shedding called shock shedding. There is no need to worry or panic in this timeline, it is called adaptation period.

-Within 3 to 6 months after shedding, it grows strongly with newly added roots and a beard is formed.

It is important to perform a health status analysis and comprehensive preliminary examination before beard transplantation. As a result of the comprehensive preliminary examination, possible risks that may arise are determined and the most suitable technique for beard transplant for you is determined by our doctors.

Beard Transplantation Prices

Beard transplant prices are also among the topics of interest. The number of hair follicles to be planted in the region is one of the factors that determine the beard planting prices. There is a direct proportion between the number of hair follicles and the prices. If the hair follicles to be used for sowing are less, the prices of beard transplantation will also decrease. Pricing is determined by the number of hair follicles to be transplanted. Apart from this, the experience and equipment of the beard transplant clinic, specialist and team that will do the beard transplant are also effective in pricing.
