Beard and Mustache Transplantation
Beard and mustache transplantation is a procedure that aims to densify the hairiness of the cheeks, chin and upper lip.
Hair transplantation is a procedure frequently performed on young people, for whom a full beard is a sign of maturity, or on men who wish to camouflage scars left by acne, a burn, an act of surgery or even a cleft lip and palate. In both cases, the doctor takes hair from the scalp before re-implanting it in the beard or mustache.
The operation of beard and mustache transplants is the same as that of hair transplants. Start by taking hair from the crown. Hair from this so-called donor area has the characteristic of not being affected by the phenomenon of androgenetic alopecia.
24 to 48 hours after the intervention, an edema appears before fading after 3 to 4 days. Small scabs form in the grafted area, but these scabs fall off with the implants 5 to 7 days later. For 2–3 months, the skin in the treated area may be slightly pinkish, but eventually it will whiten completely. Finally, a control examination with Doctor Fırat Siksik is planned after two weeks, six months and one year to check the clinical result of the transplant. Note that patients cannot shave their beard or mustache in the week following the operation.
