How does Beard Transplant Work?

For many years now, we have transplanted hair from the neck to create a thicker and fuller beard. The principle is the same as with a regular hair transplant – we transfer hair from the neck using FUE technology. That is, we extract one hair at a time and plant it in the area where you want a denser beard.

In 3 to 4 months, the beard will have begun to grow and will appear denser. The maximum result is achieved after 12 months when the hair follicles have gained full growth speed and the hairs have reached full thickness.

Common Areas For Beard Transplantation


The beard line

The appearance of one’s beard line is entirely up to the individual to decide. A natural beard line often doesn’t have any straight or sharp lines; this is something you achieve through shaving. The shape of the beard and the placement of the beard line is very important as these together create the shape of your face.

Some choose to keep their beard line fairly straight, while others may place it slightly higher up with a softer shape. This is done so that one will have the option of shaving a straight line while maintaining the possibility of having a more natural look if one so chooses.

Things to consider when transplanting a beard

The hair at the back of the neck may sometimes have a different color than the beard; usually the beard is slightly darker.

In some cases, the shape of the hair may differ. For example, you may have a slightly curly beard while the hair on your head is straight. These differences must be reviewed before moving forward as this may have a major impact on the result. Therefore, we may need you to supply us with additional photos of your beard and donor area when you send your online consultation to us. If so, we will revert to you.

Once you’ve had your beard transplant, you cannot eat solid foods for 4 days. This is because the motion connected with chewing may damage the hair follicles.

Good Candidates for Beard Transplant

Good candidates for beard transplant in Turkey are men in general good health with:

  • Spotty or patchy areas in the beard region
  • Sufficient hair growth on the back or sides of the head
  • Realistic expectations

Beard Transplant Procedure

Beard transplant surgeons in Turkey remove hair from the back of the scalp in small follicular units — one or two hairs at a time. For the most natural looking results, grafts are placed at an angle that mimics the existing hair.

After the Procedure

Following the procedure, there may be some minimal scabbing and the new implanted hairs may begin to fall out, however the cells and glands which foster the hairs are firmly in place. In about three months, your beard will begin growing normally.

General Risks of Beard Transplant

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Numbness
  • Loss of sensation

Moustache Transplantation

Thick, bold moustaches have proven to be an iconic and a powerful symbol of maturity, masculinity and wisdom among men. But some men are genetically predisposed to thinning or absent facial hair.Men who have suffered from injury or trauma to the face, which resulted in scarring may also encounter less hair growth. Moustache transplant in Turkey is an incredibly popular procedure to stimulate hair growth in the moustache area.

Good Candidates for Moustache Transplant

Good candidates for Moustache Transplant are men who have no facial hair or men who have suffered facial trauma that prevented facial hair growth. Whether your absence of facial hair is due to genetics, acne scarring, or injury,a facial hair transplant may be a viable solution.

Moustache Transplant Procedure

The objective of moustache transplantation in Turkey is to intensify hair growth using follicular unit transplantation to transfer hair root cells and ensure natural growth. The groups of hair are taken from areas of dense hair growth and implanted in the moustache area.

After the Procedure

During the recovery period, scabs will begin to heal after one week to ten days — without leaving any scarring. The hair transplanted to the moustache cannot be distinguished from the patient’s original pattern. The results are natural and permanent.

General Risks of Moustache Transplant

  • Infection
  • Scarring
  • Numbness
  • Loss of sensation
  • Need for corrective surgery

PRP-aftertreatment to promote hair growth

PRP helps the hair follicle to start producing hair quicker after it’s been transferred from the neck and transplanted to the beard. It also stimulates the healing of the transplant area and makes the area heal faster. After a beard transplant, you can expect to see the end result after 12 months and PRP may speed up the process somewhat.

Most men can go through a beard transplant. We will find out how many grafts (hair follicle groups) are needed during the consultation alongside with how large the area is to be covered and how much hair is already growing on the cheeks. We prefer taking hair from the back of the head but also from the chest if needed.

After a beard transplant, you can’t eat anything solid for the first four days. Instead, you get to drink soup through a straw. This is to avoid the newly transplanted hair follicles being damaged by the chewing you do when eating. After 4 days, the hair follicles have grown, and you can eat as usual again.

After 4 weeks you can start trimming the beard with a trimmer but no shorter than 3 mm. It is important that the trimmer has a plastic cover or a plastic comb on the razor. It is also important that you do not shave with a razor directly on the skin before 6 months have passed. Only after 6 months can you shave with a metal razor without risking damaging the transplanted hair follicles.

The hair transplanted from the back of the head does not grow back. The transplant itself means that the entire hair follicle from the back of the head is removed. When a transplant is well made, the difference between your normal hair and that which has been transplanted will not be very noticeable. You will not be completely hairless on the back of the head when you have done a hair transplant.
