What is Beard and Mustache Transplantation?
Beard transplant is the process of transplanting hair follicles taken from the nape between the two ears or from the most suitable part of the body to the beardless parts of the face. Like hair transplantation, beard transplant is applied by the physician under local anesthesia to the areas where shedding due to genetic reasons, traumas or burns. Since the thick roots to be taken provide a more successful result of the beard transplantation process, the existing hair roots in the neck region are preferred.
Can it be Applied to Balding Men?
Beard and mustache transplantation is a method that can also be applied to patients who have no beard and mustache on their face. In this way, many Arab and Far Eastern patients who came to our clinic have successfully undergone hair and mustache transplantation.
However, the fact that the transplant patient is brunette or blonde does not affect the treatment process in any way. Patients whose hair and beard grow in different colors should be analyzed well. It is useful to warn the patient in advance about the possible outcome.

Can Beard Transplantation Be Performed Together With Hair Transplantation?
If the person who will have a beard transplant will also have a hair transplant, the patient must be meticulously evaluated. The hair follicles in the donor area should be examined in detail. It should be calculated that the hair follicles taken from this area will be used for both hair and beard, and a suitable planning should be made accordingly. The hair follicles should be transplanted without damaging or wasting them. In addition, the hair follicles suitable for beard should be used for beard transplantation and those suitable for hair should be used for hair transplantation. Hair and beard transplantation can be performed at the same time by making the color distinction of hair follicles correctly.
