On top of the hair, the beard is an important aesthetic element for many men. A beautiful, strong, and healthy beard is trendy and gives the man a masculine aura. The self-confidence is strengthened, especially since an individual beard hairstyle underlines the character and type. But regardless of trends or beauty ideals – beard hair has always been one of the basic needs of men.
It does not necessarily have to be a full beard. A simple three-day beard is often enough to give a face the necessary extra contour and radiance. No wonder that there is an increasing trend towards beard transplants in the field of aesthetic hair medicine, which can help a man achieve a full beard.
A beard transplant can help men with sparse beard growth to fill hairless gaps in the cheek or upper lip area. This allows the existing beard to be densified. Desired beard hairstyle can be designed even on a completely beardless face. Especially in Turkey, there are now many facilities that perform such aesthetic procedures very successfully.
Beard Transplantation in Istanbul
Istanbul, for example, has developed into a metropolis of aesthetic hair medicine. At first glance, the low cost of hair transplants in Istanbul is convincing – but above all, it is the high quality of medical care that makes many patients travel to the city on the Bosphorus for surgery.
Especially with beard transplants, patients are convinced of the qualities of Turkish doctors. It is precisely for this procedure that the surgeon’s experience and skill are required. And since hair transplants are carried out 365 days a year in Turkish clinics due to the high demand, the doctors can refer to a great routine.
The hair on the head is used for a beard transplant. The hair on the head is most similar to the original beard hair. With a local anesthetic, the pain sensation in the head area and the affected region of the face is eliminated. Local anesthesia ensures a painless procedure.
For the reconstruction of the beard, the Turkish clinics have been using the FUE technique and its sub-methods for years. The “Follicular Unit Extraction” method is the most modern method of removing hair root units, the so-called follicles or grafts, individually and gently. An extremely fine hollow needle is used to extract hair from the back of the head. These are inserted in the desired region of the face.
The procedure is similar to the typical transplantation of the head hair in Turkey. However, an additional step in the process is necessary. This is because the hair follicles that have been removed have to be divided again. The beard consists exclusively of single hairs. The individual hair roots must first be separated and then individually implanted.
After about four weeks, the newly transplanted hair falls out again and grows back after four to six months. This is the new hair, which then remains stable. After about 3 to 6 months, the hair roots begin to form new, strong hair. Sometimes it can take up to a year for the final result to be achieved.
The scalp hair transplants are applied so that they are perfectly aligned and can no longer be distinguished from natural beard hair. After about 12 weeks, the new beard hair begins to grow from the transplanted roots – for life.
