Beards, which contribute to making the facial contours of men look more aesthetic, are expected to provide full development between adolescence and twenty-five years under normal conditions. In healthy and genetically susceptible individuals, the full development of beards is completed in the early twenties. The factors that determine how much, how and at what degree of beard will come out are quite a lot. Nutritional habits of the person, metabolic status, genetic heritage, the machine used while shaving are among the main factors.
Just like hair, root condition is very important in beards. In individuals with sparse, thin hair and straight hair, unlike their hair, beards can come out in a very different structure. The main reason for this is not only the genetics, but also the features of the region where the hair root develops.
There are diseases and problems in the entire body, especially in the facial area, that target hair. Depending on these problems, changes can be seen in the amount, density, angle and symmetry of the beard. Injury, burns, blows, and the presence of a beard-breaking disease are the main factors leading to problems with the beard.
Aesthetic concerns of women and men are very different. Women try to make their entire body aesthetic on the one hand and face areas on the other. To do this, they undergo very complicated operations. In men, the situation is different. It is possible to eliminate many problems by making the facial area aesthetic. In addition to the forehead width, eye structure, lip structure and nose structure, the shape and density of the beards also affect facial aesthetics in men.
It is possible to say that men with intense beard look more handsome within the aesthetics of today. With beard growth becoming fashionable, those with beard that is not thick, or worse, never came out. Depending on some factors, those who experience regional beard losses are under psychological pressure. When it comes to aesthetics, the limits of plastic surgery are quite wide. For any reason, elimination of these beard problems is possible with beard transplantation applications.
The operation of transplanting the hair follicles taken from other parts of the body is called beard transplantation in cases where the beard does not grow or the density is low. In the last decade, there has been a great increase in the frequency of application of beard transplantation operations. With the increasing frequency of application, much more research and development activities started on beard transplantation.
Beards are considered the sine qua non of male aesthetics. As a result of long beard fashion, every man cares about the density of their beards today. Even those who shave their beards daily can apply for beard transplantation operations.
In short, everyone who is not satisfied with their beard has provided the first condition for beard transplantation operations. More detailed conditions are sought after the related condition is met. The beard transplant must have sufficiently similar hair follicles in the donor area. In addition, the patient should not have infectious diseases or suffer from metabolic diseases.
In beard transplantation operations, hair follicles taken from another part or parts of the body with appropriate technique are transplanted in the most natural looking face area. It is a very technical process and it is very difficult to apply. Although it is performed in many places today, it is necessary to choose a specialist place in this field in order to obtain successful results.
The methods used in the beard transplantation technique are the same as the techniques used in mustache transplantation and hair transplantation. With the increasing demand for application, modern techniques used in hair transplantation method are also adapted to beard transplantation. Nowadays beard transplantation is done under two techniques, but the old FUT technique is not preferred much. The main reason for this is that there are many disadvantages compared to the success it provides. FUE technique is used as the modern technique. In this way, serious successes are achieved.
Regardless of the method, beard transplantation operations are carried out in certain stages:
Regardless of the method, operations are performed under local anesthesia. In some patients, deep sleep is preferred. During the procedure, hair follicle transfer cannot be made from a foreigner. Hair follicles present in the patient’s body are used. In general, although hair follicles, ie grafts are taken from the nape region, if the density in this region is low, it can also be taken from other parts of the body.
How much to take from the neck while removing the hair follicle is also related to whether the patient is planning hair transplantation after the operation. If the patient plans to have a hair transplant operation after the beard transplant operation, as little hair follicles as possible are taken from the nape area.
The method was first applied in hair transplantation operations. It was developed twenty years ago to eliminate all the disadvantages brought by the FUT technique. This technique is used in all of the beard transplantation operations since it gives the closest view to nature. Although it is used intensely, it cannot be applied by everyone since it requires a lot of finesse. It is successfully performed by plastic surgeons who have been trained in this field and know their hair roots and male facial types. The method is implemented as follows:
Since there is no incision, there is no scar anywhere on the body. In addition, each hair follicle has a natural appearance as it is placed in a specially opened channel. Another factor that is effective in ensuring naturalness is that the angles are calculated correctly.
It is essentially the technology of the nineties. Although there are several techniques based on the FUT method after increasing frequency of application, this technique is almost completely abandoned today. Like the FUE technique, the FUT technique has emerged as a hair transplant method. As beard transplantation lost its popularity in the widespread period, it was preferred very little in beard transplantation.
The main difference from the FUE technique is the way hair follicles are collected. Hair follicles collected one by one in FUE technique are collected as a whole in FUT technique. The hair follicles are collected from the skin in the form of a strip made from the donor area after the skin is removed from the head.
In FUT technique, angles cannot be adjusted precisely because of the difficulties during the channel opening process. For this reason, if it is not applied by a specialist surgeon, there are problems with naturalness.
Although aesthetic sutures are laid in the area where hair follicles are taken during the operation, the probability of leaving a scar is very high. It is possible to talk about a hairless trail in the form of a ribbon between the two ears in the area located on the nape. Hair on the top and bottom covers this area, preventing bad appearance, but the patient may feel psychologically uncomfortable.
While almost all of the patients who want to have beard transplantation are suitable for the FUE method, there may be problems regarding the compliance with the FUT method. In particular, problems may arise regarding the adequacy of the donor region. There is a direct proportion between the number of hair follicles to be removed and the strip size. Since the strip is very large in patients with a thin neck, the aesthetic appearance can disappear completely.
Beard transplantation operations are not started directly. The factors underlying the beard problem of the patient are sought before. Most of the time, permanent but non-permanent hair fall occur due to stress or metabolic diseases. In such cases, even if the beard is transplanted, it does not remain and the patient becomes even more unhappy.
With this analysis made before beard transplantation, if stress lies under the shedding of the beard, the patient is directed to the psychologist. If there are metabolic diseases, they are directed to the relevant clinics. If the patient’s beard has been permanently shed (or not at all) due to genetic factors or other factors, the patient is considered to have provided the precondition for beard transplantation.
With the analysis made before the operation, the amount and angles of the beards to be transplanted are also determined. To ensure this, the patient needs to grow his beard before the operation to about two centimeters. Accordingly, it is sufficient to determine the amount and angles to be transplanted. The use of certain medications (making the blood fluid, disturbing the hormone balance, etc.) after the operation is decided is subject to doctor’s approval.
Beard transplantation is a fairly simple application. Often, there is no need for a surgical incision to be made thanks to the FUE technique. For this reason, patients are considered suitable for the operation unless there are extreme situations. Complete blood count, urine test and hormone tests can be applied to check the suitability of patients. However, the donor region and the recipient region are examined with high resolution cameras.
There are two conditions for the patient to be eligible for the operation:
As long as two conditions are met, the operation is carried out if the patient has no infectious disease. If there is skin disease on the scalp or beard skin, the beard transplantation operation is delayed until these diseases are resolved. After determining that the patients are suitable for the operation, the technique is decided by a more detailed examination.
During the operation, sowing can be done on the favorite, mustache, chin, cheek areas.
Beard transplantation can be done with FUE or FUT techniques. Today, the use of the FUT technique has decreased considerably. The data show that only about five FUT techniques are used to grow beards per hundred. Often, the patient does not have a say in the choice of method. Nevertheless, the pros and cons of methods to discuss agreement between the doctor and the patient are discussed. If you don’t mind collecting individual hair follicles (FUE technique), FUE method is definitely chosen.
Regardless of the method, the area of
It is not necessary to enter extreme conditions for preparation for beard cultivation operations. The number of complications that can occur during or after the operation is quite limited. Some preparations should be made only to comply with the sensitivity of the transplanted hair follicles.
The top clothing to be worn on the day of the operation should not be bottlenecked. Zippered clothes should be worn as much as possible. In this way, damage to the hair follicles is prevented while removing the clothes.
To reduce bleeding during the operation and to shorten the recovery time after the operation, smoking and alcohol should be stopped. Smoking and alcohol should be stopped a week before the operation.
Although there is no surgical incision during the operation, minimal bleeding occurs due to the needles entering and exiting. In order to prevent infection from these open areas, care should be taken before the operation. The face is sterilized just before the operation. In order to reduce acne development and keep the pores open, it should be washed with water with high pH value during the one-week preparation period. In addition, some natural cleaners should be used, and a clay mask should be made if possible.
Eating habits should not include fatty and acidic foods. Eating as natural and vegetable-based as possible will reduce the risk of developing infections after surgery.
Since the operation is performed under local anesthesia, the risks arising from anesthesia drugs are very low. The risk of developing complications that can affect the lung is very low. Nevertheless, tests are performed before any operation. During these tests, the patient is observed and the risks are minimized.
Careful attention should be given to shorten the recovery period after the beard transplant operations, to reduce the risks and complications, and to remove the transplanted beards as desired. The recommendations given by the surgeon performing the operation are fully followed. Also, care should be applied to the facial area. The purpose of this care is to shorten the healing time as well as to make the beards grow much stronger. In the process after beard transplant operations, the facial area can be treated as follows:
Recovery time after beard transplantation operations is quite short. However, it takes a long time for the transplanted beards to come out healthy. The process of recovery and emergence of new beards after beard transplantation takes place as follows:
In other words, it can be said that new beards appear in the fourth – sixth month after the operation, depending on the amount of beard transplanted and the patient. It may take up to a year for the results to fully appear.
Beard transplantation operations are quite simple. The preparation process can be kept quite long since they are made for aesthetic purposes and do not require an emergency. Measures are taken against complications that may develop during this process. Still, it is possible to talk about some risks, side effects and complications. All these risks, side effects and complications are compensable.
These are the risks in general. After the operation, your doctor will be informed about the related risks.
Although beard transplantation is easy, the process after the operation is quite challenging. The fact that the hair roots are very sensitive is the main factor that makes the process difficult. If you do not comply with the warnings to be made by your doctor after the operation, you may encounter problems such as hair follicles not catching and not coming out at the right angle. To avoid such problems:
