Dr. Özlem Biçer and her medical team are not limited to performing hair transplant procedures in the scalp. We can provide a solution to hair loss in any area of the body, including facial hair transplant. These procedures are more complex and require a lot of experience of the doctor and the team. We perform a large amount of hair transplants in beards, mustaches and sideburns for men. The procedure is done both for filling in thin areas or to camouflage a facial scar.
Nearly half of all men struggle to grow a full beard and sideburns without patchy spots or areas of uneven growth.
Beard transplant surgery can provide the solution to this, an easy answer which remedies bald patches, helping to create either a full beard or a perfectly sculpted goatee.
Undergoing beard restoration surgery can completely change the look of your face, providing sharp lines and a full, carefully trimmed appearance.
If you only have a small amount of facial hair loss you may decide that you don’t need beard transplant surgery. However, you don’t need to have large patches of facial hair loss to benefit from a beard restoration.
Here at the Dr. Özlem Biçer Clinic we can either perform a beard restoration surgery on very small areas of hair loss, helping you to create a sharp-looking and tidy beard which is even throughout, or alternatively help with a more extensive beard transplant where the uneven growth is more apparent.
As well as genetics or natural loss of facial hair, there can be a number of reasons why growing a beard may not be possible. These include:
- Burns, scarring or skin trauma
- Past surgery
- Radiation treatment
- Systemic illness
- Trichotillomania (an obsession with pulling on the hairs in your beard)
BEARD RESTORATION METHODS
The donor hairs come from the scalp which, when transplanted into the beard, continue to grow for a lifetime.
The process begins by extracting the donated hair follicles; this is done using either the FUE (follicular unit extraction) or FUT (follicular unit transplant).
FUE works by directly extracting the donor follicles from the head, using a tiny semi-circular incision which allows the individual follicle to be pulled directly from the head.
After this phase, the follicles are cleaned up, diluted and prepared to be grafted onto the beard area.
FUT is a cutting edge technology which involves harvesting the hair follicles and then working microscopically to create hundreds of tiny, natural-looking grafts ready to be implanted.
HOW A BEARD TRANSPLANT WORKS
A beard hair transplant creates permanent results, putting your hair in the place where you need it the most and putting you in control.
Hair follicles in the beard or mustache all grow individually meaning that for natural looking results; each hair must be implanted individually, placed in the correct direction and in close proximity to its neighbor.
To create a goatee will require 1200 – 1500 grafts
To create a full beard will require 2500 – 3000 grafts
This is an extremely high number of follicles which must all be carefully grafted, requiring patience, a precise hand and plenty of experience in delivering the right results.
The results of our beard transplant in the Dr. Özlem Biçer Clinic are permanent, and a difference can be seen immediately, although it can take up to a few months for the results to be final.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
The exact price of any beard transplant surgery will vary but you can expect to pay between 2500/4500 euros, depending on how much hair you already have and the intended end results.
