Beard and Facial Hair Transplant in Turkey Istanbul
Beard Transplant procedure, which is also known as facial hair transplant is very similar to Hair Transplant. They are both conducted with the latest FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) Technique in which grafts are extracted one by one and planted on the receding areas under local anesthesia. The duration of the procedure is usually around 4 to 8 hours depending on the receding area size.
The procedure gained popularity in the recent years, with the increase in popularity for hair transplant in Turkey, patients are more willing to travel abroad for best results at affordable prices. One of the best aspects of this procedure is that patients are able to restore their look even the receding area is a result of a burn or trauma.
There are no known side effects of this procedure as it is simply re-allocating the patients’ own hair follicles. And the medication used during the beard transplant procedure are similar to what dentist’s use, yet Welfare Abroad hair specialists check the patient’s medical history and run blood tests to make sure that everything is alright.
Are You Suitable for Beard Transplant?
As long the patient has a strong donor area, which is basically the rectangular area at the back of head between ear-tips. As long as the patient is not suffering from spot baldness or diffuse pattern balding, beard transplant procedure is available for anyone.
Things to do Before Beard Transplant Treatment
Patients should stop using alcohol, aspirin, anti-inflammatory medication, herbal teas, and vitamins as these would increase the blood flow rate and complicate the beard transplant procedure. Stopping smoking also helps during recovery as smokers tend to heal slower.
How is Beard Transplant Performed?
Firstly, the donor area needs to be trimmed with machine (around number 3) as the hair specialist needs to see the area clearly during the extraction phase. It is important as it allows the medical team to pick the best candidates of all the hair follicles in the donor area in terms of size and growing direction.
As in hair transplant, FUE technique is preferred for beard transplant procedure also. And with this technique, a micro-motor powered punch is used (has about 0.9mm radius) to extract the grafts. Since the equipment used for beard transplant is tiny, this method is also known as the scar-less hair transplant method.
Once the grafts are extracted, the hair specialist opens channels on the receding areas to restore the blood flow on these areas which is very important for success of beard transplant.
After the channels are opened on the receding areas, hair specialist would plant the extracted grafts depending on their sizes and growing directions. Following this, the donor area is covered with bandages and the healing period begins.
Beard Transplant Recovery Period
All Welfare Abroad patients receive verbal, written, and visual instructions regarding post-operative care. Also, Welfare Abroad provides necessary medication and garment (when needed), so each facial hair transplant patient will receive antibiotics to prevent possible infections and painkillers.
Patients need to avoid sweating or touching the plantation area for a short period after the transplant. Once the scabs are cleared around the first month, patients won’t have to actively participate in the recovery process and just wait until the full results appear.
Welfare Abroad care team will be contacting the patient periodically and ask for recent photos to follow-up the recovery process as well.
Beard Transplant Side Effects
There isn’t any long-term side effect or discomfort in a beard transplant procedure. Yet, there may have a few unwanted side effects like pain, redness, swelling, and itchiness which usually go away in a week or two.
Beard Transplant Success Rates
Beard transplant reviews set the success rate at around 96%, the results are visible after 4th month and the full results can be seen between 9th and 12th months.
After FUE beard transplantation your new hair will look all natural since the transplanted hair had been extracted from your own hair which will be chosen depending on their size and growing direction.
If the donor area and the body hair is not available for the procedure; hair transplantation can not be performed. Also patients need to inform our team about their diseases by submitting our medical questionnaire.
Since you will have less hair on your donor area compared to the amount before procedure, with the help of blood circulation the existing hair will be fed more and become more lively than before even. Also you will get a PRP therapy session with your beard transplant treatment which helps to stimulate the growth.
