Natural beard and moustache implantation: method and cost

For almost everyone, a beard is considered a sign of masculinity, and many men like to have a beard, but they don’t have a thick beard. Sometimes, a person’s beard grows in patches or does not grow evenly in the lower part of the face. In other cases, thinning and loss of facial hair occur as a result of genetic factors, physical injury, cosmetic procedures, or skin cancer. Beard and moustache transplant techniques can help you achieve your desired look without leaving unnatural and artificial effects on your face.

Causes of facial hair loss

Genetic factors are essential in determining your facial hair’s thickness, thickness and density. Additionally, hormonal factors can affect beard and moustache growth. Facial scarring, pimples, or physical injuries can cause facial hair to split and fall out. Usually, beards and moustaches do not grow in the scars without hair transplantation, and these areas remain hairless. Many diseases, such as thyroid diseases and autoimmune disorders, can affect facial hair growth. A facial plastic surgeon can help you find the cause of your facial hair loss.

Benefits of facial hair transplant

Effective and safe

Creating natural and permanent effects

No need for re-treatment to maintain results

You can shave, trim and style the transplanted hair

Minimally invasive method without side effects

Volunteers to do this treatment

As a general rule, hair transplant surgery is effective only when places on the body have proper and healthy hair growth that can be used as transplant donor areas. In other words, the back and sides of your head must have healthy hair to “harvest”. If your head is almost bald, you won’t be able to get the most out of this treatment.

This method is suitable for people who have a patchy beard, have scars on their face, or are genetically unable to grow a beard and moustache.

treated areas

planting a moustache

Hair loss or insufficient growth of hair above the lip may be caused by genetic factors, physical damage, surgical skin cancer removal, cleft lip repair, or other cases. A person’s moustache can be restored with a natural moustache transplant, usually with excellent results. Treatment methods without surgery can also be effective in the early stages of hair loss.

beard planting

In addition to genetic factors, physical damage and skin cancer removal, hair loss in the beard area may be caused by cosmetic procedures such as laser hair removal. Some people who use laser facial hair removal to make their work easier find out that they cannot regrow their beards and moustache. The multi-step method of hair transplantation in our clinic will help you achieve the most natural results possible.

 Hair root implantation (hair in front of the ear)

 As with other types of facial hair loss, the base of the hair may also recede and lose the ability to grow due to cancer, genetic factors, physical damage and scars, or cosmetic procedures (such as a facelift). Using methods similar to eyebrow, moustache and beard transplantation, the base of the hair can also be reconstructed with acceptable results. 

How to treat

Follicular Unit Harvesting (FUE)

This procedure is performed in the operating room of the clinic. The treated area is marked with temporary ink so that the final results of the operation can be determined for the individual. He then has to confirm these markings according to his expectations.

The follicular unit means we are transplanting in the smallest possible area. For example, hair is removed from the skin in follicles 1, 2 and 3. We can link these units from one region to another. In the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method, the follicular units are removed individually by making holes with a diameter of less than one millimetre in the scalp.

Each of these units is carefully removed from the side or back of the head and implanted in the recipient area of the beard or moustache transplant. The surgeon’s skills are essential because the beard line must be reconstructed. Therefore, hair transplantation in the right place with the correct depth and angle is necessary to create natural results and requires the eyes of an artist and expertise in surgery.

Once the procedure is complete, the transplant area is bandaged, and you can easily cover it by pulling up your hair. You can return home on the same day of the operation and feel only mild pain.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT)

In the follicular unit transplant method, the hair is removed in strips. This method is highly effective for removing multiple follicular units. A strip of hair is removed from the head and then converted into follicular units by microscopic incisions. A small scar will remain where the hair strip has been removed. Remember that any fault, no matter how small, will be exposed if you shave your head.

Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT) is a suitable option for many people. The advantage of this method is a large number of grafts because almost all the removed follicular units can be used. Therefore, by using this method, it is possible to create significant effects in one treatment session. To achieve the desired results, it may be necessary to perform several treatment sessions using any of the mentioned treatment methods.

How many links are needed?

The number of transplants needed for facial hair depends on the amount of hair loss. In general, below are the average links required for each area:

500 links for moustache

700 links to Side Beard

300 links per hair base

800 links for the full professor’s beard

 recovery

Compared to many other ways of planting a beard and moustache, the advantage of this method is that it takes less time to recover. Many people return to work the day after the procedure. Hair in the transplanted area will grow back within two weeks. This method is not associated with long, painful incisions and large scars. It is essential to know that hair grows in cycles. Shortly after the transplant, the transplanted hair will fall out and your beard will return to its pre-treatment shape. Then within three months, your beard resumes its growth cycle and grows again. You can see the total growth of transplanted hair within nine months to a year.

Is hair transplant a permanent procedure?

Once the transplant is done, the hair grows permanently, and approximately 90% of the transplanted hair grows back.

Results

The final results of the operation appear a few months after its completion. The effects of this procedure are permanent and will have a very natural appearance. After the transplant, the transplanted beard will grow naturally, like anywhere else.

side effects

Beard and moustache implantation is a relatively safe and harmless method. However, each treatment method will have its risks and side effects, some of which are mentioned below:

Bruising, swelling and sensitivity to touch

Redness of the skin

Tenderness and pain in the transplant area

Create a scar

The cost of a beard and moustache transplant will depend on the following:

Number of connections made
