One of the questions people ask about such operations that provide permanent solutions is “What will happen after Beard Transplant?” Keep reading to get all the details about the period after Beard Transplant and its results.

Let Us Take A Look On Beard Transplant.

Beard Transplant is done by moving grafts from certain parts of the body to the beard.

As with Hair Transplant, Beard Transplant is done by FUE, DHI, or Robotic DHI techniques in 4-6 hours. During the procedure, which is done under local anesthesia, the grafts are transplanted individually in the beard. Usually, 1000-3000 grafts are used in order to guarantee the high density.

Since this procedure uses the patient’s own grafts, it is very safe and provides natural results. In addition, there are no stitches because there are no incisions during the procedure, so there will be no scars after it.

From Hair To The Beard!

Usually, the grafts are taken from the backside of the head or neck. This might make people ask some questions such as: Is the difference in the characteristics between beard’s hair and head’s hair is going to give unsuccessful results? There is no need to worry about this. When the grafts are transplanted in the beard, they will start to show the beard’s hair characteristics with time. The reason behind this is that the grafts take the characteristics of the area they are adapted into.

In addition, while selecting a donor area, experts select the parts that contain thick grafts, and they search for the grafts able to show characteristics once they are transplanted.

What Is Waiting For You After Beard Transplant?

There is no need to stay in the hospital after Beard Transplant. You can go back home in the same day.

Some redness and sensitivity may occur in your face after the procedure. In addition, the same symptoms may appear in the donor area. These are normal things and will disappear in a few days.

Experts will wash the treated area in the second or third day after the procedure. After washing, red blisters may appear in the transplanted area. These blisters will disappear during the first or second week after the procedure.

After 2-3 weeks of Beard Transplant, the beard may fall. This is a good sign, because the new beard that will grow will be permanent. Therefore, it is important to consider these things as natural phases of the procedure.

The beard takes its final shape in 6-9 months after the procedure.

Things To Do \ Things Not To Do After Beard Transplant.

You have finished Beard Transplant successfully, it is time for care, and here are some advices:

  • Use your medications regularly. Medications are usually painkillers and antibiotics to prevent infections.
  • Protect the transplanted area from any shocks.
  • Do not rub your face.
  • Do not use any chemical products on your face.
  • Do not shave after the procedure. After a period, you can use the razor or scissors, but do not use the blade.
  • Protect the transplanted area from sun. In the first weeks after the procedure, the exposure to sunlight will affect the recovery process negatively.
  • Since sweating affects the transplanted grafts, you have to avoid heavy activities. If you want to exercise, you have to wait for ten days after the procedure. You have to consider that in this time you can only exercise light sports only.

One of the important points you have to watch it is the sleeping position.
