How is mustache and beard transplant performed?
The process of creating a beard, mustache or sideburns begins with a consultation at the clinic. The doctor will examine the area that needs hair transplantation, the donor area, and draw the contours of the future beard.
Further, on the operation day, a beard transplant is performed in several stages.
1st stage: Extraction of grafts
From the previously prepared donor area, the doctor sequentially extracts the required number of grafts. Graft is a bundle of hair follicles with micro fragments of skin. All donor material is put to a special container, sorted and counted.
2nd stage: Hair transplant
After extracting the required number of grafts, the doctor proceeds to transplant into the beard area. Each graft is transplanted in turn. The doctor closely monitors the preservation of the hair correct position for the natural look of the mustache or beard. Hair implantation is performed under local anesthesia. Throughout the operation, the patient is conscious, in a comfortable environment. The hair implantation technology combines micro-puncture of the skin and planting of the donor graft in one touch without preliminary incisions. This allows you to achieve the most natural result and does not leave visible scars.
3rd stage: Post-operative therapy and care
The second day after the operation, the patient must visit the clinic again. Here the doctor will conduct a postoperative examination, make a bandaging and give the necessary recommendations for care. If necessary, the patient can be prescribed platelet-rich plasma therapy or low-level laser treatments. This will speed up the healing of the transplanted hair and relieve any possible discomfort.
