What is a Beard Transplant?
A beard transplant is a cosmetic procedure that can be applied to cheeks, chin, sideburns, and mustache areas, where the patient might have balding spots. A beard implant is also effective in covering acne or severe scarring. Hair follicles or hair grafts are taken from healthy donor sites and implanted in the areas where hair loss is seen. Thanks to this method, the results are natural and permanent once the new hair growth starts.
You are an ideal candidate for a beard transplant if you:
Want a fuller and thicker beard
Have bald patches in your beard
Have thinning hair
Have lost hair in great amounts
Have enough donor hair sites for the transplant
Wish to improve your confidence
Are healthy and at your ideal weight
Have done your research on the procedure and the possible risks
You will need 7 to 14 days after the transplant to recover. You may experience some flaking, irritation, and sensitivity, but you should avoid touching your beard during this period. After 14 days, you may resume your daily activities. Typically, patients start seeing new beard growth in the recipient sites after 3-4 months after the transplant and full growth within 8 months.
As the Voila health care team, we will ensure that you have gone through all the necessary health checkups before your surgery, and always be there for you during recovery to ensure you feel your best the whole time.
Aftercare is as important as the surgery itself when it comes to boosting the effects of the procedure.
Quitting smoking and drinking during the healing process are recommended, as smoking and alcohol intake might slow down the healing and potentially affect the surgery results.
Make sure you keep yourself propped up with multiple pillows while lying down or sleeping.
If necessary, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers.
Patience is key. A better you is on the way!
