Beard is very important for men. With the beard fashion, beards started to become more important. Those with sparse beards, or those with beards shed, sought a solution to this situation. Having rare beards is not an insoluble. With beard transplant, the person can easily get bushy beards.
Causes of Beard Loss
Beards can grow infrequently for many reasons or fall out later. We can divide these reasons into 3:
1. Hormone Rarely Beard Rare: One of the most common causes of beard rarity are hormonal causes. A low testosterone hormone in men can cause beard rarity.
2. Genetically Originated Beard Rarity: Beards that begin to mature and develop with adolescence continue to grow unless there is a hormonal change. But if the patient’s family has a rare beard, there is a possibility that the patient may also be.
3. Beard Rarity as a result of External Factors: Accidents, especially burns, can permanently damage hair follicles. Due to breaking hair, stress, skin problems and psychological reasons, the patient’s beard may become sparse.
Often the only solution to having sparse beards is beard transplant. If the beards have been poured irreversibly for various reasons, beard transplant is needed. Beard deficiency is an aesthetic problem. This can be applied to anyone who is disturbed by the problem.
What is Beard Transplant?
Beards, which directly affect the appearance of the person, sometimes do not have the desired strength. With beard transplantation, the patient’s sparse beards are made bushy. Beard transplant is the transplant of hair follicles taken from areas where the patient’s beard is dense, to the rare areas. Hair roots taken from the patient’s own body are used in the operation.
For beard transplant, hair roots are taken in areas where the beard is dense. These regions are called donor regions. As the donor region, hair follicles on the cheekbones are generally used. hair follicles in this area are often bothers people and look bad. Thanks to the beard transplant, both this bad image disappears and the patient has stronger beards.

How is a Beard Transplant Done?
In general, the steps of the operation are as follows:
The hair roots in the donor area are collected one by one for transplant. Beard region is preferred for beard transplant as a donor region. If there is not enough beard for transplant in the patient’s beard area, other areas in the patient’s body can be used as a donor area.
After the hair follicles in the donor area are collected, channels are opened so that these roots can be transplanted to beardless areas. Hair follicles collected from the donor area are transplanted to the opened channels.
Very care must be taken when the canals are opened and the hair follicles are placed. The direction and angle of the hair roots in the region where the transplant is performed should be determined correctly. For the results of the operation to be natural, it is imperative that the beards are transported with the correct angle and direction.
After this procedure, there is no permanent scar in either the donor area or the transplant area. During the operation, quite attentive and careful.
