Beard implantation is performed according to the same process as that used for hair transplantation with the aim of reconstructing or densifying a beard or else correcting scarring alopecia of the beard or mustache.
Wash beard and hair with isobetadine soap before coming to the office.
Do not consume alcohol, coffee or tea on the day of the operation.
Come with comfortable clothes.
It is not necessary to be on an empty stomach for the procedure.
The operation lasts in total, depending on the number of grafts required, between 2h and 5h and is performed under local anesthesia with pre-medication. The first step is to collect the hair from the back of the skull in the occipital area. The harvest, like hair transplants, can be done in two different ways:
Beard implantation is an effective and safe technique with very few complications; However, like any surgery, sometimes there can be.
Epidermal cysts and small skin abscesses represent the most frequent: they can appear on the grafted region or on the area of the harvest. They are often eliminated spontaneously and do not compromise the quality of the end result.
Scalp or beard sensitivity disorders may also appear. This different sensitivity is due to damage to certain small nerves in the skin during the procedure. This is temporary and resolves spontaneously in the months following the procedure.
Micro-reliefs created by the healing of the implants can persist for several months after the operation. This is usually not visible to the naked eye, but can be grainy to the touch and become more noticeable if you shave very closely.
