Beard transplantation mustache transplantation, both beard transplantation and mustache transplantation came to the fore immediately following hair transplantation technologies.
This is very normal, men do not have many aesthetic concerns. In any case, beard transplantation or mustache transplantation is not done because of aesthetic concerns but to complete the image of masculinity. The beard and mustache are already referred to as secondary sex characters in medical jargon. So let’s start beard and mustache transplantation.
Genetic absence of a beard and mustache as total or partial can occur as a result of various injuries or diseases. The planning for treatment is very similar to the planning for hair transplantation. The nape area is preferred for hair follicle collection where the hair does is not prone to shedding.
Hair extracted from other body parts and transplanted to the scalp is not preferred because the hair properties are not optimum. Although there are practitioners who use beard strands from the neck area where the beard can be excessive, our experience is in favor of using nape hair follicles.
Again, standard local or block anesthesia can be applied and any discomfort is absolutely eliminated. Hair follicles from the nape are taken one by one with the help of a micro motor.
After the anesthesia has taken effect, hair follicles are collected and stored in special Frozen PLT solutions to maintain their vitality. Although the number of roots to be taken depends on the area needed, it can vary between 100-1500 for total mustache transplantation and 2000-3000 for beard transplantation.
Of course, the design to be made before the procedure will determine the graft need. The next stage is one of the most important stages of the procedure, the angular alignment of the mustache and beard is very important like it is for eyebrows.
If there is an existing beard, the follicles are planted under their guidance, if not, the beard or mustache is planted with a horizontal inclination close to the standard. We can choose sapphire percutaneous grooves or choi implanters depending on the density we plan to transplant and the presence of former roots in the area.
The transplanted hair follicles hold on to the mustache or beard area and maintain their vitality. As in hair transplantation, most of them will enter the regression phase (shock shedding) within 2-4 weeks, start to grow again in 4-6 months and complete their maturity within 1 year. Shaving can be started 2-3 weeks after the transplantation procedure.
