The transplantation is applied with FUE and DHI methods. In this method, the grafts from the patient’s donor area are transplanted to the target area one by one. You will see no traces after the operation and experience a more comfortable postoperative period thanks to these methods.
In general, beard and moustache begin to grow and get thick after the age of 15. However, in some cases, beard formation cannot be completed due to many reasons, including hormone deficiency. In these cases, the most logical application is beard transplantation. Besides, patients can prefer beard or moustache transformation due to scars, burns or some alopecia types.
An average of 1500 hair follicles is enough for successful results in beard transplant operations. On the other hand, transplanting 600 follicles can lead to satisfactory results for moustache transplant. After the beard and moustache transplantation, there is no visible trace both in the donor and target area. When you follow the recommendations of the doctor after the procedure, you will get impressive and successful results.
One of the most critical issues is how to create channels in the target area. It is essential to give the necessary angle, which is approximately 35 to 40 degrees. In the sense of application, there is no difference between hair transplant and facial transplant. You can get impressive results in capable hands.

After the Operation
For better nutrition of the new hair follicles by the body, there is an increase in the blood supply in the target area, which causes acne-like small rednesses. They will disappear in two or three days. There are some points you should consider for a more healthy postoperative period.
- First Washing After the operation: You should wash your face after the operation in accordance with your surgeon’s recommendations. The first wash is an essential and delicate process. Therefore, you should be careful while washing your face after the operation.
- Be Careful While Lying: Another point for healthy results is your position for 1-2 days after facial hair transplant. Instead of lying face down, it is necessary to lie on your back.
- Do not shave your beard immediately: You should wait a minimum of 12 days after facial transplant for hair follicles to hold on to the face thoroughly.
- Avoid harmful substances: You should never use harmful substances such as tobacco products and alcohol in the first week.
After the facial hair transplant process, there is a period which we call shock shedding, which varies from person to person. This process can occur between 30 and 90 days after the operation. Your new beard and moustache experience a shock hair loss. This is perfectly normal, and your facial hair starts to grow within two months. Achieving the desired result can take an average of 6 to 9 months. With proper care and hygiene, the healing process operates more healthily.
