It is the process of placing grafts taken from the scalp on the nape of people who have sparseness in the beard or mustache area.
Beard appearance is one of the most important issues for men. Seeing a sparse beard when they look in the mirror bothers men. Beard transplantation, which is preferred by people who want to grow their beard naturally, is performed by planting the roots taken from the donor area to the beard area.
As in other transplantation methods, the donor area is usually the nape of the beard transplantation method. The grafts collected from the nape are placed in the channels opened in the beard area and the transplantation process is completed. In beard transplantation with DHI technique, Choi implanter pen is used and grooving is done during transplantation.
The beard transplant procedure, which is applied with local anesthesia, takes between 3-6 hours. Sowing time varies according to the size of the empty areas and the number of grafts to be planted.
People who have a sparse beard area or who are completely beardless can easily be transplanted. Mustache transplantation is also applied with the same logic. It is expected that people who are considering transplanting the cavities in the beard and mustache area are over the age of 21.
The complete completion of the adolescence period plays an important role in beard and mustache transplantation. Because the hormone balance of the person who will have a beard and mustache transplant should be at normal levels and the beard and mustache hairs should not grow out. Since the beard structures of men in adolescence will begin to form fully, this period should be expected to pass.
The angle of the hair is very important in the beard and mustache transplantation process. Paying attention to the angles in the grooving process determines which direction and angle the hairs will grow in the future.
Paying attention to some points after the transplantation process facilitates the attachment of the transplanted grafts. The area should not be touched with water for the first 3 days after sowing. You should not lean forward for 3 days to avoid facial edema.
The face should not be rubbed for 1 week. It is important to avoid clothing that will cause friction. It is necessary to pay attention to the itching caused by healing and not to scratch the area.
The first washing process is done by Promed Clinic specialists in the clinic 2 or 3 days after the operation. The gentle process uses special emollient solutions, a necessary step to soften the appearance of scars.
On other days, the washing process should be applied as specified by the experts and the peeling stage should be completed.
Beard loss can occur for many different reasons. Excessive levels of stress, unhealthy diet, hormonal imbalances, skin diseases, injuries, burns cause skin damage and hair loss.
After the beard and mustache transplantation process, the old hairs on the transplanted roots are shed and new ones grow in their place. This type of shedding, called shock shedding, begins to be seen from the 2nd week after the operation. New hairs begin to grow in place of the shed hairs within 4-8 months. After all these processes, at the end of a total of 1 year, a natural beard or mustache structure is formed.
The 3-day period after the operation is the most sensitive period. During this period, the planting area should not be touched with water. Care should be taken not to damage the roots until the first wash.
2 or 3 days after the operation, the first wash is done in the clinic. Then, within a period of 7-10 days, the beard area should be kept moist and washed gently without rubbing too much. The crusts formed in the transplanted area are poured after 10 days, and the red appearance disappears.
The beard grows on average around 0.25-0.35 mm per day in a healthy individual.
Shaving should not be done in the first two weeks after beard and mustache transplantation. It is recommended to shave with a quality and sharp blade at the end of two weeks. After the operation, you should only shave with a razor blade for at least three months. The use of a shaver is not recommended.
Shock shedding may occur after beard and mustache transplant operations. After the operation, a shedding occurs between 2 and 6 months. The beards shed with shock shedding start to grow again between 4 and 8 months and reach the expected appearance at the end of 1 year.
In the beard and mustache transplantation process, local anesthesia is applied to the area and the patient does not feel any pain.
