Beard and mustache transplant: FAQs

At Clinicana we carry out beard and mustache transplant by using the most modern techniques for the extraction of grafts, which are characterized by speed and achieving better results in terms of density and almost no side effect or scar, compared to the traditional methods used in hair transplantation.

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions about the beard and mustache transplant, and the answers. Anyway, in case you have any other question or inquiry, please don’t hesitate to contact us directly.

 How many grafts should be transplanted to achieve the shape of the beard that I want?

In fact, there is no fixed number of grafts required, since the number varies depending on each case. If the area of the beard is free of hair, it will be necessary to implant 4500-5000 grafts. However, if a hair intensification is required in the area, it will be necessary to implant 3000-3500 grafts; and if the purpose is to fill the empty spaces on the beard, it will be necessary to implant 1000-2000 grafts.

How long does the beard and mustache transplant take?

Due to the nature of the facial skin, which is more flexible than the scalp skin, the grafts are generally implanted slowly to allow for a maximum control and natural view of the follicles. It takes about 3-4 hours to complete the transplant, compared with 2-3 hours of scalp hair transplant; however it will depend on the area to cover and the density of the beard that you are looking for.

Will the hair growth of the beard be the same as in the scalp? 

If you are worried about whether the new hair transplanted in the beard will grow exactly like the hair of the scalp, that is different in nature, we can tell you that there is no need to worry. Transplanted hair in the beard will grow like any hair growing in the face, with the same quality and characteristics.

Will the beard transplantation will be painful?

Similar to any hair transplantation in the scalp, hair transplantation in the beard does not cause any pain. The only exception is during the anaesthesia phase, which takes 2-3 minutes in the posterior area and 5 minutes in the front area; anyway the pain subtends to the needle prick and it disappears after a few minutes.

How long the operation takes and how long should you stay in Istanbul?

Normally, you should stay in Istanbul just for two days. For example, if you arrive in Istanbul on Wednesday morning, you will be welcomed at the airport at landing time and transferred to the hotel. After that, you will be driven to the hospital for a blood test and first consultation. Then, you can make a tour around the city and have a good time in Istanbul.

On the second day, the operation is performed and you are advised to have rest in the hotel. The following day, you will come for checkup and removal of the bandage. And on Friday afternoon, you can take your flight back home!

What are the steps and stages for a beard and mustache transplant?

The procedure is much similar to the way the hair is implanted in the scalp. At the beginning, we will draw the lines of the beard that are determined to suit the shape of the face, taking also into account the patient´s personal desires to achieve a natural result.

After that and once the anaesthesia has taken effect, the medical team at Clinicana Hair Transplant Center starts extracting the follicles from the donor area located behind or at the sides of the head, and it also starts opening the channels in the receiving area just as in the scalp hair transplant.

At this step, the experience in choosing the hair that matches the facial hair closely is vital, something that only an experienced team like the Clinicana medical staff can provide.

After that, hair follicles are re-implanted in the receiving area, taking into consideration the hair growth angle so that the resulting hair appears normal and natural.

What are the expected results for beard and mustache transplant?

The Clinicana’s medical professional team aims to give you the most realistic and natural results, and they will stay with you until the end of your life. Our professional team restores your natural appearance by following the natural direction of hair growth. You will not be able to distinguish between the natural hair and the transplanted one.

What are the side effects of the beard transplant?

Expected side effects after the beard transplant may not happen if the patient properly follows the instructions given by our doctors. However, as the patient undergoes a surgical procedure, he can expect some redness and swelling in the facial area after the beard transplant (usually about 5 days). The patient can get over these symptoms with good care and patience.

It is recommended during two days after the operation to eat comfortable food for the jaw area, something that is not needed to chew, such as juices, liquids and soups, to give more stability to the grafts in the transplanted area.

Another side effect as a normal part of the process is the hair falling during the first week. However, this side effect is very common as is part of the hair cycle stage, and will soon grow again within 2-3 months. After 4-5 months you will see noticeable results in your implanted area; and finally, after 7-8 months you will achieve the final results of your beard transplant.

When can I shave my beard after the operation?

Hair implants should not be shaved during the first 10 days following the procedure. In general, only scissors should be used to shave the beard hair after two weeks and until the fifth month after the operation; once this period is over, you will be able to use razor blades or other shavers.

What is the price of a beard and mustache transplant?

The cost of the package stars from 2000€ for beard transplant only. In case you wish additional services such as accommodation and transportation, additional amount will be added to the total cost.
