How are beard transplants, mustaches and sideburns transplanted?
Before the planting starts, the doctor listens to the person’s demands and determines the planting area according to the face, hair and skin structure. According to the determined model, the necessary calculations are made in millimeters and it is planned how many grafts (hair follicles) will be planted in which region. Hair grows at an angle of 45 degrees deeply, and beard and mustache at an angle of 10 degrees. Since the angles of the beard, mustache and sideburns are very low to the skin, the skill and harmony of the operator and his team who will apply this technique is of great importance. The hairs that will emerge as a result of the transplantation process should be natural and exactly compatible with the person’s original beard, mustache and sideburns. After the planning, the first stage of the planting process is started. At this stage, the nape of the person is shaved and sterilized to collect the grafts. Then, an analgesic (painkiller) and sedative (relaxing) drug combination is given to the person by the anesthesiologist. Thanks to the immediate effect of the sedative drug, the person calms down and go into a light sleep state. The soothing effect of the sedation process ensures that the person does not feel the local anesthetic injections to be applied to the head area for hair transplantation. This semi-drowsy state, which the person spends without feeling any pain, lasts for about 10 minutes. Imported from America after local anesthesia started to show its effect; ACell, which contains vitamins, minerals and drugs, is injected into the scalp with the help of a device called “microneedle”. Thanks to ACell, which revitalizes the hair follicles and awakens and strengthens the inactive ones, the highest efficiency is obtained from the transplantation process.
Then it goes to the second stage. Hair follicles are meticulously taken from the donor (nape area) area with micromotors. The use of very thin tips during this process ensures that no damage occurs in the nape area and that other roots are not damaged. While the collected grafts are waiting in a special solution, channel opening is performed in the transplantation area. Very small, smooth and dense microchannels are opened in the target area with sapphire-tipped pens, which gives the name to the Sapphire FUE technique. Sapphire, which is a hard crystal, allows the channels to be opened without damaging the scalp and existing roots with its structure that does not lose its sharpness. In this way, both the planted roots easily attach to the opened canals and the target area heals quickly by reducing the crusting as the deformation is minimal. In the third and final stage, the grafts are being one by one planted in accordance with the natural exit angle, direction and curvature of the opened channels and the hairs in that area. At this point, planting the beard and mustache at a right angle in accordance with the curve of the hairs; It is of great importance in terms of obtaining a natural and aesthetic appearance as intended. The planting process is completed in 4-5 hours on average, depending on the application area and the number of roots planted. If the person does not have an aesthetic concern, he can return to his social life on the same day. Very mild swelling and redness in the transplant area will go away on its own within a few days. A pinhead-sized crusting occurs in both the donor and the target area. This crusting, which is almost invisible from the outside, goes away on its own in about 15 days.
When do the beard, mustache and sideburns grow and present the desired appearance to the person who has received the treatment?
After the operation is completed, the crusting and shedding process of the transplanted hair follicles begins within 15 days. This phase lasts about three months. After three months, the transplanted roots begin to grow at the desired angle and fullness, in harmony with the person’s own beard, mustache or sideburns; Over time, it gains a visual integrity with its new location. A natural, healthy, voluminous and aesthetic appearance is obtained when the mustache, beard or sideburns take their final shape in about 6 months.What should be considered after beard transplantation, mustache transplantation and sideburn transplantation?
