Beard Transplant

What You Need to Know About Beard Transplantation

Facial hair has always been associated with men’s masculinity and maturity. A thick beard and mustache do have a strong effect but some men are not able to grow sufficient facial hair due to various reasons, of which genetics is one of them. However, with the development of technology, your genes or any other factor does not stand in your way anymore. A hair transplant is no longer limited to the head and beard transplants are now successfully carried out to help men. A beard transplant includes everything in the face area. However, before you go to a clinic, there are a few things you should know about beard transplantation. Knowing all this will help you develop realistic expectations about a beard transplant.

You must have sufficient donor hair

Your request to get a beard transplant first depends on the donor hair you have. You need to have enough donor hair follicles for this process. If you already have serious baldness problems, you might not have enough donor hair for a beard transplant.

The FUE-technique is used

If you only need a couple of hundred grafts for the transplantation, your surgeon will recommend you the minimally invasive FUE-technique that does not leave any scars.

You mustn’t shave immediately

It is better not to shave the planted hair during the first 10 days after the surgery. Do not forget that there will be hair loss two weeks after the treatment. Don’t worry, this situation is known as the shock stage that paves the way for new hair growth in the 3rd or 4th month after surgery. After that, you can decide if you want to shave at any time so that the new hair begins to grow.

It is a permanent solution

The advantage of every kind of hair transplant is that it offers permanent results. Thus, you do not need to worry about losing your new beard after transplantation.

No risk

You may think that beard transplantation is not a very big treatment to worry about. Of course, there is nothing to worry about, but it should not be forgotten that it is still a surgical procedure. Although very rare, there are risks and complications such as infection and scars on the face. This generally occurs after bad facial care and if an unexperienced surgeon carried out the procedure.
