What is Beard Transplant? The beard, which is described as so-called a man’s makeup, has been used by almost all men in recent years as long or short. Most men have a beard that grows bushy, but the beard is less likely to grow because of hair fall or hormonal reasons. If the person is uncomfortable with the loss of beard or thinning, he resorts to beard transplant.
What is Beard Transplant? Things to do before beard transplant
Before beard transplant, the person must be treated. If the fall is caused by a hormonal cause, medication is treated first. If there is no permanent fall or thinning, beard transplant is not performed.
When going to the examination, the beard should not be shaved and the doctor should see the natural way of beard growth. It is recommended that you do not take any medication without consulting your doctor before the operation. You should not smoke or should reduce smoking before the operation. Because smoking will damage the hair roots and the effect of the process is reduced.
For the beard loss that is caused by genetic factors, certain diseases or accidents, the person having the beard transplant should be examined. If the beard transplant is deemed appropriate, the procedures are initiated by the physician and the donor hairs taken after marking the recipient area and harvested grafts are implanted into the bald spots.
Shock Hair Fall May Occur
Since beard transplant is a more delicate procedure than hair transplant, it takes about 8-10 hours and is not painful as local anesthesia is used. Beard transplant can be performed on people who are 24 years old or older in order to avoid fall in the future due to hormonal changes. In the process, hair follicles taken from the donor area are implanted.
Red spots may appear on the hair follicles after the operation, which is perfectly normal. Blood cells nourish the hair follicles, which is extremely useful for beards. After beard transplant, shock fall occurs as in hair transplant, as well. It should be stated that the person should not worry and that it is a normal condition. After shock fall, the implanted beard begin to grow completely in 4 to 8 months.
First, the area you want to have a beard transplant is examined by the physician. A blood test is then performed to address the source of the problem. Local anesthesia is performed to numb the donor area where the hair follicles will be harvested. The grafts (hairs from the donor area) are collected by the FUE method. Following collection of the grafts, micro holes are opened in the areas where the hair follicles will be placed. Beard transplant is performed by implanting hair roots through the holes opened.
Recovery Period after Beard Transplant
The maximum recovery period after beard transplant is 1 year. At the end of 1 year, the beard begins to set and grow. In the first 10 days of the operation, newly transplanted hairs are adapted, the treated area is incrusted and scabs are shed. A complete recovery is seen in 1 year. Razor and razor shaving should not be done after minimum 4 months and maximum 6 months after beard transplant. The person needs to shave with the machine.
