What Is Beard Transplant?
Beard transplant is implanting new hair roots to bald areas in your beard. This operation can be used for filling gaps on your beard or to reshape beard line. If you want fuller looking beard, you can choose this surgery. Beard transplant is applied with local anaesthesia. So, patients do not feel any pain during the operation. It is possible to combine moustache transplant with beard transplant.
Is Beard Transplants Different Than Hair Transplants?
Actually no. In theory, both beard transplant and hair transplant follows the same steps. In beard transplant, hair is collected from a donor area. This donor are is the back of the head. Hair grafts are collected with FUE (follicular unit extraction) method. And these grafts are implanted to beards. Before the operation, doctors design how will the new beard look. This way, beard line can be redefined and a new shape can be achieved.
How Long Does Recovery Take?
Patients can go back to their normal life right after the surgery. However, it is always recommended to rest for couple of days. Resting will speed up the recovery. After beard transfer, there will be shock loss. This means, your new transplanted beard will fall. But this is perfectly normal. After 6 months, new beard will star to grow. In most cases, full beard will grow in one year.
Is Beard Transplant Permanent?
Yes. Just like hair transplant, beard transplants are permanent as well. Once your transplanted beard starts to grow, it will stay there. Hair extracted for beard transfer are collected from the back of the head. Hair in this region of your head is the strongest and most durable against hair loss. So, you don’t need to worry about beard loss after your surgery.
Will My New Beard Look Natural?
Yes it will. Since your own hair grafts are used during the transplant, you will achieve a natural look. There will be no difference in texture and colour as well. However, doctor’s skill play a great role on success of the operation. A good doctor and a good transplant team will make a huge difference.
