Hair Transplantation from Beard
Since the nape donor area is narrowed in large shedding, the number of roots that can be taken is limited and these few number of roots cannot provide enough density to meet the patient’s expectation. Beard and chest hair transplantation is a serious solution in cases where the nape donor area is insufficient. Chest hairs, which are among these donor areas, do not grow and are of very poor quality, because of which the beard stands out. Although the labor and money spent in planting is the same, only 2 chest hairs can provide the density of one beard hair. On the other hand, chest hair does not grow, while beard hair grows just like nape hair.
Application of Hair Transplantation from Beard
Beard Hair Transplantation is performed by taking 4000-5000 grafts from the beard area, especially in people with large and dense hairy beard area. 1000 beard roots provide the covering effect of 1500-2000 hairs. As the beard is of higher quality, it is more efficient than the covering effect of the hair.
Beard taking is mostly done under the jaw, neck and cheekbones which are unnecessary parts of the beard. Up to 1500 grafts can be taken in one day. After 2 months, roots can be taken again from the same area. Each root taking causes some amount of thinning.
This stepped application of beard hair transplantation gives the person the opportunity to get as much beard hairs as he wants to transplant. Depending on the thinning effect after graft taking, the person may want to have more or less thinning. Thus, beard taking also provides a depilation effect.
Usually, we take roots from the jaw, neck and cheekbones, which are the unnecessary areas of the beard, while we can also take roots from the normal beard area from the ones with dense enough beard to provide some depilation effect.
