Genetic factors, accident or burn marks are the leading causes of beard or eyebrow deficiency. The affected area can be restored with Hair Transplantation. The grafts are taken from the donor area and transplanted into the eyebrow, beard or mustache area.
The number of grafts needed in the hair transplantation process applied to the facial region is less. Therefore, the FUE method is the most appropriate option.
During beard, mustache, eyebrow transplantation surgery, the grafts to be transplanted are removed from the back of the head like standard hair transplantation, then the area where the roots will be transplanted is prepared, small canals are opened, and follicles are transplanted into it. Only one or two grafts are selected and planted to give a natural appearance. As in hair transplantation, it is essential to place the hair in the ideal direction and angle. The surgery lasts about 3-8 hours, depending on the size of the recipient area. The technique and postoperative care applied in Hair Transplantation are the same. As the transplanted area heals, shells from around the area where the grafts are placed. Shells take about 1 to 2 weeks to fall off. The transplanted beard, mustache, eyebrow begin to grow 2-3 months after surgery; the results become visible precisely one year later. Hair in the transplanted area is permanent for life. Most Hair Transplantation specialists can perform Eyebrow or Mustache Transplantation, but do not guarantee good results; an experienced doctor should be selected in this respect.
