Updated: Dec 21, 2020
Beard and mustache are the most important factors affecting facial expression in men. For this reason, even the smallest deformations in the mustache and beard area are evident in the facial temperament. Beard and mustache transplantation is one of the most preferred aesthetic operations of recent times. In this way, appropriate beard and mustache transplantation is performed with very practical and time-consuming methods.
Beards and mustaches, which have an important share in the appearance of men, are sometimes shed for certain reasons. In such cases, aesthetic intervention is required. Is it possible to bring back the lost beard and mustache? Let's take a closer look at what operations are applied for this.
How is Beard and Mustache Transplantation Done?
Beard and mustache transplantation is done by FUE method. FUE, known as Follicular Unit Extraction, is a method that includes the procedure of collecting and transplanting grafts by a specialist team. However, for this, it is first checked whether the patient is suitable for the FUE technique. In the FUE beard and mustache transplantation procedure, grafts are usually taken from the nape area for transplantation along with other beards in the face area. If the beard area is to be used as a donor, the roots are collected from the hair regions such as neck, cheekbones and under the chin and tightening is performed. Due to the scattered beard structure, the roots taken from the areas that disrupt the general appearance provide an advantage for permanent hair removal. In short, the FUE method of mustache and beard transplantation is based on the collection of hair follicles from the donor area one by one and placing the roots at a right angle with the canals opened in the form of points.
Where to Get Hair Roots?
In beard and mustache transplantation with the FUE method, hair follicles are usually taken from the beard area or from the neck. Generally, an average of 3000 hair roots give the desired result. However, if only the mustache area will be transplanted, an average of 500 - 800 roots will be sufficient. Thanks to the FUE method, there is no scar in the areas where the hair root is taken. Even if an average of 10,000 roots are taken from the nape of the root, there is no noticeable change and dilution.
What Should Be Considered During Beard and Mustache Transplantation?
Mustache and beard transplantation is an operation similar to hair transplantation, but it should be done within the framework of certain rules. This is because the beard and mustache area is more sensitive than the hair area. Because during the operation, hair follicles are transferred to the facial area. How the hair follicles are placed is very important in beard and mustache transplantation. For this, a shape is determined before application and the operation is done accordingly.
We can list the things to pay attention to in beard and mustache transplantation as follows;
• Region of Hair Roots
In beard and mustache transplantation, hair roots are usually taken from the neck and body. However, it is appropriate to take and transplant excess beard roots with an unnecessary order in the neck area. Thus, a more aesthetic and successful result is obtained.
• Planting Angle
Another important issue is the planting angle of the feathers. The main purpose of the operation is to create a natural looking beard density. Therefore, the planting angle of the hair follicles should be considered and naturalness should be prioritized.
• Before Beard and Mustache Transplantation
This process is very important. Before the beard and mustache transplantation, blood tests should be done. Thus, the health status of the person is checked and whether it is resistant to this operation is determined. At the same time, past illnesses are taken into consideration. In short, with a detailed examination, the areas where both the beard and mustache are sparse are examined.
What are the Risks of Beard and Mustache Transplantation?
Professional healthcare organizations should inform patients about possible undesirable consequences before surgical operations. Therefore, it is necessary to consider the unwanted consequences that may occur during beard mustache transplantation. For example, the use of drugs that will increase the possibility of bleeding during transplantation should be stopped.
A hair and mustache transplant operation that is not applied in a hygienic environment may also cause unwanted results and pose a risk. For this reason, the materials and area used during the operation must be sterilized.
We can show the risks that may arise after transplantation as follows;
Short-term loss of sensation in the area where the hair follicles are taken,
• If the hair follicles are placed deeper than they should be, cyst formation in the form of acne,
• Hair loss as a result of damage to the surrounding hair follicles in the transplantation procedure.
Who Is Beard and Mustache Transplantation Applied?
The main cause of beard and mustache loss is the testosterone hormone. Lack of hormones that enable the growth of hair follicles and usually a genetic factor cause beard and mustache loss or sparse growth.
Apart from these, scars and burns caused by some reasons cause damage to the hair follicles and cause loss of beard and mustache. The hair structure formed during puberty preserves its structure in the absence of a significant hormonal change, and this may cause sparse mustache and beard formation.
In short, this operation is applied to people who suffer from beard and mustache loss due to certain reasons. However, as mentioned above, certain controls are required for transplantation. Otherwise, undesirable results may occur after the operation.
Post-Implant Healing Process
The operation continues for 4 or 6 hours depending on the number of roots to be transplanted. It is normal to see redness in the transplanted area due to the holes opened by the micro punches used in the FUE method. These mild rashes disappear within an average of 1 week.
There is no need for the patient to stay in hospital after transplantation. After the operation, the patient can continue his daily life. In beard and mustache transplantation, as in hair transplantation, hair follicles can be shed collectively during the 2-week period. However, this process is temporary, and then the hair follicles recover in an average of 5 - 8 months and the regrowth process is completely finished.
