Beard Transplants in Turkey

Beard transplant is a surgery that implies transplanting hair usually from the scalp to the beard area, generally using the FUE hair transplant method. This operation sometimes is used to thicken the already existing beard or to fill in patchy regions. The transplanted beard can be shaved and styled as wished after some time. Transplants of this kind can be made for sideburns, a goatee or moustache

Such a specialized operation is performed only by certain qualified surgeons and it can last two to four hours. The donor follicular units are usually taken from the scalp because they have a similar texture as the ones from the beard. After applying local anesthesia on both areas, the surgeon extracts the follicular units from the scalp and implants them in extremely small incisions into the beard skin. The hair follicles are carefully implanted into the natural direction of the hair growth, also paying attention to the aesthetics, for example grey hairs. If the existing beard is very thin, it might be required to operate several procedures in order to add thickness. 

The transplanted hair follicles fall after one month and new ones begin to grow in approximately three months, taking about one year to fully grow in. It is usually possible to shave, trim, or style the beard only a few weeks after the transplant was completed.
