Facial Hair Transplant

What is a Beard Transplant?

Beard transplant, in the same way as a traditional scalp hair transplant, constitutes the only permanent solution to a lack of hair. A beard hair transplant can lend a different character to a person’s face, as well as helping to conceal scars or burns in the facial area.

A beard can symbolise many things, from masculinity and confidence to creativity, sensitivity, intellect, and a certain sense of mystery. A beard transplant is a reasonably simple outpatient procedure, and patients at SHIFT can feel confident in achieving the best aesthetic results in a comfortable and safe setting.

The Benefits

What can a Beard Transplant do?

A beard transplant can give a real lift to those with naturally sparse or patchy facial hair, and can often boost the confidence of patients in everyday social life. Having fuller facial hair also provides for a wider array of styling options, making it easier to follow trends or choose between a variety of different looks.

A beard transplant operation can be conducted on an outpatient basis under a local anaesthetic, yet it yields impressive results. One year after the operation, the transplanted beard hair can be trimmed, shaved and styled in the same way as normal hair.

Expectations

What to Expect from a Beard Transplant Operation?

A beard transplant is very similar to a scalp hair transplant procedure in that it normally involves extracting grafts from the donor area at the back of a patient’s head before transplanting these into the area or areas where hair is absent. As hair from the back of the head area is effectively ‘resistant’ to baldness, this means that the transplanted hair is very unlikely to thin or fall in the future, making a beard transplant a permanent aesthetic solution.

As with a scalp hair transplant, the angle, depth and direction of the transplanted grafts will have a considerable impact on the quality and natural appearance of the results, meaning that an excellent level of expertise and a personalised, artistic approach will be necessary to achieve the best results for each patient.

Techniques

The Techniques of Beard Transplant

There are three main beard transplant techniques available today: DHI, FUT, FUE and its derivative; Manual FUE, Sapphire FUE, Gold FUE, Micro FUE, Perkutan (Percutaneous FUE), Hyper FUE, Soft FUE, etc.

FUE

FUE is the common technique for beard transplant nowadays, as it allows for transplantation of the maximum number of grafts. FUE is an excellent all-round technique as it is suitable for the majority of patients. FUE involves extracting individual grafts from the donor area before opening microchannels in the transplanted area and placing the grafts in these channels. The advantage of extracting the grafts individually is that this leaves minimal scarring and leads to a swift recovery time.

DHI

DHI is a good technique for creating density in smaller areas and is particularly useful for those seeking a minimal or partial transplant. It involves using an implanter pen to open the channels and position the extracted grafts in one movement. DHI has a faster recovery time than ‘Classic’ FUE but it can only be used for smaller quantities of grafts as it is more time-consuming.

FUT

FUT is an older beard transplant technique which has now been surpassed by newer methods. It involves harvesting an entire strip of skin from the scalp and dividing this up to obtain individual follicular units, before implanting these in the channel in the recipient area. FUT offers the highest overall rate of graft survival but its downsides are a more painful and complex operation, a slower recovery time and permanent linear scarring, meaning that it is not commonly used now.

The best course of treatment will depend on you and some factors such as your age, the extent of your hair loss, the number of grafts to be transplanted, your hair and skin, etc. SHIFT always works with you to create the best results in the best conditions. Your experience in a wide range of techniques means that they are perfectly placed to offer each patient the course of treatment that is most suitable for them.

This means that the level of expertise is the highest. Investment in cutting-edge technology and excellent hospitals have also meant that Turkey is miles ahead of other countries in this area, as has Turkey’s focus on embracing innovation.
