What is a beard hair transplant?

Who is a good candidate for a beard hair transplant?
A good candidate for beard hair transplant requires having healthy hair follicles at the back of his head, which is called the donor area. If you have strong hair follicles in this area, you are probably suitable for the operation. Our medical consultants will ask you some questions and assess your medical history to make sure you are suitable for the operation.
How many grafts do I need for a beard transplant?
Depending on your expectation and the condition of the donor and transplant area, the number of grafts needed for beard hair transplant varies between 400-3500. You can see 4 main cases below to estimate the number of needed grafts for your beard transplant operation.
Please note that every case is unique and your need may be different than the examples below to achieve a full healthy looking beard.
The first case has a dense beard with small patches. In order to achieve a thick and dense beard, 400 to 1000 grafts will be sufficient.
The second case has lower density and sparse facial hair growth. This case needs between 1000 – 2000 hair grafts to achieve a full beard appearance.
The third case has significantly thin and patchy facial hair growth. This case needs a minimum of 2000 hair grafts to achieve a dense beard appearance and up to 2800 grafts to achieve a full beard.
The fourth and the last case has close to zero facial hair growth. That’s why it needs between 2800 to 3500 hair grafts to achieve thick and dense beard transplant results.
Which technique is the best for facial hair transplants?
Two different techniques are used for facial hair transplantations: direct hair follicle transplant (DHI) and follicular unit extraction (Ice Frozen FUE). Both of these techniques involve extracting individual grafts (follicle units) from the donor area at the back of the head and transplanting them into the desired area on the face.
In the DHI technique, the surgeon takes individual hair follicles and immediately after the extraction, applies them one by one to the desired location using a tool called the Choi Pen.
In the FUE technique, the surgeon cultivates the hair follicles individually, then opens the microchannels in the recipient area and implants them in the previously collected hair follicles.
While consulting with our surgeon, you can mention the density and shape of your new stubble. If your donor area is suitable, you can get the thick, well-groomed beard you’ve always dreamed of.
Frequently asked questions
How long does a beard transplant take to heal?
Luckily, beard transplants show a quick recovery. You will start to notice some skin crusts around the transplanted hair follicles after the surgery. During this time, your face can feel a little itchy but not much uncomfortable than that. These crusts tend to flake off in a few days.
Typically, the transplanted area will be ready for shaving in 2-3 weeks. However, depending on your body’s reaction and skin type this process might take longer. You should note that before starting to shave your transplanted beard you should wait until the area is fully healed and does not show signs of sensitivity.
Even though transplanted beard hair might fall out after around 3 weeks, it grows back and recovers its healthy state. Within 3 months after a successful beard hair transplant, hair follicles settle into place and grow like normal beard hair.
