One of the questions on the minds of those who want to have a beard restoration: “What will happen after the beard transplant? ” is happening. Continue reading this post to learn about the post-beard transplant process.
The demand for beard transplantation has increased considerably in recent years. Many men want to have a beard transplant to feel better. You can have the bushy beard you want permanently with beard transplantation. If you want to have a thicker beard, you should consider beard transplantation.
The beard transplant procedure is the transfer of the hair follicles taken from the body to the beardless areas. Beard transplantation can be performed with different techniques. The duration of the operation depends on the number of grafts to be transplanted. A beard transplant operation takes an average of 4 – 6 hours.
The grafts used in beard transplantation are taken from the patient’s own body. Transplantation cannot be made with hair follicles taken from another person. This procedure is very reliable because hair roots are taken from the patient’s own body. There is no scar left after the operation.
The area where the grafts are taken is called the donor area. Different parts of the body can be preferred as the donor area. The most preferred donor area is the part behind the head between the two ears. This area is the most ideal area for hair transplantation and beard transplantation. In cases where the nape area is insufficient, other regions can be used as donor areas. This is mostly true in hair transplantation. Because the hair follicles in the nape area are usually sufficient for eyebrow and beard transplantation.
Transplanting the hair follicles taken from the nape area to the beard area may cause question marks in patients. Because there are differences between hair and beard. There is no need to worry about this. The hair follicles transplanted to the beard area will adapt to the area they are in as time passes and they will start to grow just like a beard.
Post-Beard Transplant Process
There is no need to stay in the hospital after beard transplant operation. The patient is discharged on the same day. In the first days after the operation, redness, itching and tenderness may occur. This is part of the healing process and these symptoms disappear within a few days.

First Wash After Beard Transplantation
The first washing is done on the 2nd or 3rd day after the operation. The first wash should not be done by the patient himself. During the first wash, the hair follicles have not yet gotten used to their new place. In the wrong move, they can easily be damaged or even die. For this, the first washing should be done in the hair transplantation center. After washing, crusting and redness are visibly reduced. The other washes are done by the patient himself. The patient is given detailed information in advance about how to wash his beard.
Hair Loss After Beard Transplantation
14-15 days after hair transplant, the transplanted beards begin to fall out. This is part of the healing process. When your transplanted beards begin to shed, you don’t have to worry. Hides that will come out after spillage will show permanent properties.
