The only solution to beard and moustache loss is transplantation. Transplantation can be applied to those with no or little beard or in cases of local loss of hair for permanent solution. Beard and moustache transplantation is done by FUE technique as in hair transplantation. Since the hair follicles extracted from the donor area, the back of the head between two ears, are permanent in nature, the implanted hair will never fall off. One of the most important details in the case of beard and moustache transplantation is that the canals opened on the scalp should be linear and single grafts should be implanted very carefully.
Beard and moustache transplantation is more difficult to apply and requires more precision compared to others.
As in hair transplantation, the patient’s need is taken into consideration and the operation is completed in a single day with transplantation of up to 4000-4500 grafts without time limitation. The thicker the bread is, the more beautiful it looks.
Healing period is quite easy to go through. Tissues regenerate themselves in 7-10 days. The scabs formed during the operation disappear in 7-10 days. On the 10th day, the implanted grafts are finely in place.
In the 10-day period after the operation, the transplanted area is washed and scabbing is cleared away. It is a sensitive period that should be paid great attention under our observation.
The part of or the whole transplanted beard and moustache falls out (“shock loss”) within 1-2 months. This condition differs from one patient to other. While some patients never experience shedding, some others experience full loss. It is a normal process. After a resting phase, approximately 2 months after the operation, the transplanted beard and moustache start to grow and get into shape in 6 to 8 months.
