Beard transplants and moustache transplants are now common procedures

Facial hair has become extremely popular over the last three years, especially with those of you who are in their twenties and thirties. Because beards and moustaches have become a fashion trend, it is important for many men to have a full beard, it is almost a statement of virility and masculinity.

While some beard and moustache styles are natural and ‘wild’, we know others of you prefer to have a perfectly sculpted and trimmed beard and moustache. Every style can look ‘imperfect’ if you have uneven beard growth, if you have bald patches, or if scarring has caused a loss of beard hair growth.

Sideburns are making a comeback

A sideburn transplant may seem unusual to you, but here at iMed Istanbul, it is becoming as popular as beard transplants and moustache transplants. This procedure is also ideal for those of you who have strong beard growth around the chin and mouth, but where the hair is sparse in the areas leading up to your ears.

A beard transplant can transform sparse beard growth

No matter how hard you try, you just don’t seem to be able to grow a full beard, either because the growth is uneven and lacking in places, or there is just insufficient facial hair growth. The FUE beard transplant method can solve these problems by creating a fuller and more even-growth beard.

FUE beard transplant, FUE Moustache Transplant and FUE sideburn transplant – advantages

A beard transplant or moustache transplant does not transplant facial hair from one location to the next – this would not work on a thinning beard. Instead, hair is harvested from around the nape of the neck where, traditionally, hair grows the thickest. This hair is then transplanted to the beard area, and when this hair grows, it will be identical to coarser beard hair, owing to hormones which are supplied to the facial areas which are not supplied to the head. Other advantages include:

  • This is a permanent treatment, there is no need for any follow-up treatments
  • The ‘operation’ is nominally invasive, minimising discomfort, stress and pain
  • The procedure is performed under a local anaesthetic
  • The average time for the procedure is three hours
