Apart from that, mustache transplantation is evaluated in the same category as well as beard transplantation. In this context, mustache transplantation and beard transplantation procedures are also similar.

After beard and mustache transplantation, there is no visible large scar and the healing process is very fast. Temporary symptoms such as redness, swelling and dryness of the skin may occur, but these symptoms disappear completely within a few days.

Unlike hair transplantation, because the transplanted area is the face and the face is more sensitive, there may be swelling in the first 2-3 days. However, these symptoms are minimized by the patient’s following the recommendations after the process, the use of medication and ice applications. Postoperative pain is not uncommon in patients followed up. Since the face is treated in the operation, the sleeping position is one of the most important conditions, the patient should lie in a suitable position and not damage the planted grafts. At Smile Hair Clinic, the necessary information for this is shared with the patients after the beard transplant operation.

It may take up to 1 week for the person to return to work after the operation. Even though there is no problem about returning after 2-3 days in medical and medical terms, we recommend that the patient plan for at least 1 week later in order to have hesitations due to his appearance and to stay away from prying eyes and questions. During this period, the skin will have healed, beards will have grown and shaped, swelling will have decreased and redness will have decreased. Until the 2-3rd week, the process will be a period that pleases the patient, hears positive feedback from the environment and makes the right decision to have it done. However, after this period, the transplanted hair follicles will enter a temporary period of shedding in the area where the beard is planted for a certain period of time. Patients may experience loss of up to 50-80% of the transplanted beard roots during this period. However, as of the 3rd and 4th months, these transplanted hairs will start to grow back and grow. The chart below shows the process in detail.


In beard transplantation or any hair transplantation, the loss of the transplanted roots is not expected under normal conditions. However, in the operations performed by amateur people, the roots taken from outside the safe donor area and sensitive to testosterone, and if the person has hair loss, shedding may occur in the future. But beard transplantation done by clinics that do their job correctly and properly will give beautiful and optimum results.


Although the graft calculation for beard transplantation varies from patient to patient, it will vary according to the face type, current beard condition, the patient’s request, and beard style. In our clinic, before the operation, the area to be transplanted is calculated and the density calculation is made in order to get the optimum result according to the thin and thickness of the hair to be taken from the person, and this number of grafts will be taken from the safe donor area of the patient in accordance with the nature of beard transplantation.
