Although being beardless is not important for most men, it is very annoying for some others. It causes the individual to experience both psychological and social bad feelings. Beard transplant is a very popular procedure across the world. People who come to us usually come with problems such as having beard that grows asymmetrically, having some areas which are completely beardless, or some sparse areas caused by scars. The technique used in the beard transplant procedure is the FUE technique. The procedure performed with this technique has no side effects, and can be performed at any age. The beard transplant procedure is usually performed in conjunction with sideburn transplant. The procedure is performed by harvesting follicles from the submandibular region, cheekbone region, and the neck, and then transplanting them to the sparse areas. Graft harvests performed delicately leaves no scars. After all these steps, the result to be achieved through beard transplant will be highly natural. Your beard will continue to grow immediately after the beard transplant procedure. You can begin to trim your beard with scissors or make it grow 15 days after the operation. It is recommended to do the first shaving after 1 month, in order to allow for the follicles to take hold sufficiently.
