Beard implant in Turkey

The beard implant has become one of the most popular interventions that we carry out at FUEMEDICALCENTER, since the request for this type of hair transplant has increased by 30% to 40%. This increase has several factors, among which we can highlight the following:

  • Aesthetics: there are men with thinning beards, low density facial hair or bleached areas who would like to have, either for aesthetic reasons or for the opportunity to have a wider range of options, the possibility to grow a beard. On other occasions it may also be due to the intention of eyeballing a cleft lip or covering acne scars or burns with a thick beard.

  • Technological advance: technology has advanced a lot in recent years, and hair surgery has benefited from these innovations. Nowadays, beard transplants can be performed with excellent precision, providing guaranteed, natural and definitive results.

  • Cultural factors: the beard is a trend, and from time to time more and more men prefer the beard to shaving, which is why there are also more who want to be able to grow a healthy and attractive beard. Likewise, there are cultures in which beards are a required element, so they become a necessity.

  • Price: you can find the bearded hair implant at a very competitive price, especially in Turkey, since the value to be paid includes other services apart from the surgical intervention.

Until a few years ago, beard transplants were not considered as a possibility because the results did not usually meet patients’ expectations, but nowadays, beards and facial hair can be grafted onto other areas such as the moustache, sideburns or eyebrows, obtaining very natural results, which is why this procedure has become so popular.

What technique is used for beard transplantation?

The beard implant in Turkey is usually performed with the FUE hair transplant technique, which consists of extracting the hair follicles one by one using the most advanced instruments in the field of medicine, and implementing them in the recipient area, in this case the beard, with maximum precision and without leaving scars.

It is estimated that in a beard implant session, between 300 and 700 grafts are transplanted per side, depending on the extension and the density that is intended to be obtained (approximately between 20 and 40 follicular units per square centimeter depending on each person). As a result, the duration of the operation is between 2 and 5 hours, depending on the case.

What are the particularities of the beard implant in Turkey?

The grafts that are made in Turkey should be of 1 or 2 hairs at most, since the hair of the beard usually grows in an isolated way. Incisions must be tangential with a correct angle and direction, made with 0.7 or 0.8 millimeter blades to minimize scars. Also, the length of the incision should be 1 centimeter to adjust the desired orientation according to the areas. This is not a complicated procedure, but it is a delicate one, which is why the experience of the surgical team in this operation is key.

The price of a beard transplant in Turkey also varies depending on the needs of the client, although most of the time this is due to the fact that the prices of hair surgery in Turkey also contemplate other needs such as hotel accommodation or travel.

What happens after surgery?

Although beard implantation is performed using the FUE technique, which is one of the most commonly used techniques for hair grafts, the post-operative period varies slightly, as the implant has been performed in a more delicate area and not on the scalp. After the surgery a small and painless crust is formed that holds the graft and falls off after a few days. After two weeks, the grafted hair also falls out on its own, and after the third month the beard begins to grow normally. The result of this type of intervention is permanent and very satisfactory.
