Beard and Mustache Transplant image

Recently, beard and mustache transplantation has become a common phenomenon among men around the world, reflecting significant changes in the concept of male beauty and psychological safety. Launching beards and mustaches is considered one of the oldest human practices, as men have known it since ancient times and provided a means of protection, defense, and distinction among each other.

With the development of science and agriculture techniques, men can now get a tight and symmetrical beard and mustache in shape and design, thanks to the advantages of beard and mustache transplantation that help improve their performance and quality. In the following, we will discuss these advantages in more detail.

It is a procedure in which some hair follicles are transferred from the scalp or chest area to the beard and mustache area, after the surgeon ensures that the characteristics of the transplanted hair match those of the facial hair, so that its appearance does not differ from the rest of the facial hair.

The Hair Transplantation procedure takes several hours to prepare and execute. In the end, the surgeon ensures that the final appearance of the transplanted hair is indistinguishable from natural facial hair.

The common reasons for undergoing Beard and Mustache Transplantation are to enhance the hair density in these areas or fill in the gaps in the beard and mustache.

People who suffer from hair loss in the beard and mustache due to aging, hereditary baldness, burns, injuries, or previous medical treatments may also undergo this procedure.

The requirements for a Beard and Mustache Transplant depend on the patient's health and the area where hair transplant is intended. General requirements include good health and absence of any health conditions that prevent the patient from undergoing surgery.

Additionally, the beard and mustache should be in good condition and free of any inflammation or skin problems. Some cases may also require additional tests and evaluations prior to the procedure.

Beard and mustache transplantation is performed using the micrografting hair transplantation technique, which is a surgical procedure that is conducted under local or general anesthesia. The following is an explanation of the procedure in detail:

  1. Area determination: The area where the hair will be transplanted is determined, which can involve the beard, mustache, or a specific portion of them.

  2. Hair follicle harvesting: Hair follicles are harvested from the donor areas in the scalp using precise tools.

  3. Preparation of the recipient area: The area where the hair will be transplanted is prepared by thoroughly cleaning and anesthetizing it.

  4. Hair follicle implantation: The harvested hair follicles are implanted into the recipient area using fine needles or small blades.

The procedure takes approximately 4-6 hours and depends on the number of follicles to be transplanted. Full recovery may take from 6 to 12 months.

Beard and mustache transplants are like hair transplants in terms of the basic idea of the procedure, but there are some key differences between the two processes, including:


  1. Natural hair directions: In beard and mustache transplants, hair follicles must be transplanted at specific angles according to the natural growth direction of the hair, whereas in hair transplants, hair can be transplanted in almost any direction.


  1. Hair quality: Beard and mustache hair differs from scalp hair in terms of thickness, texture, and growth, so different hair follicles must be used in the transplant process.


  1. Transplant area: Generally, beard and mustache transplants require less area than hair transplants, as the beard and mustache can be transplanted in specific areas instead of the entire scalp.


  1. Waiting time: After a hair transplant on the scalp, it may take several months for the hair to grow fully and the final results to show, while the final results of a beard and mustache transplant can be visible within a few weeks.

The time it takes for results to show after a beard and mustache transplant depends on the individual and the type of procedure performed. Typically, some results can be seen after two months, with full results visible after around 6-12 months.

Generally, the results of a beard and mustache transplant are permanent and last for a long time.

Before undergoing a beard and mustache transplant, the following instructions should be followed:


  1. Avoid taking medication that causes bleeding, such as aspirin, for one week before the procedure, as directed by the doctor.
  2. Refrain from smoking for at least one week before the procedure.
  3. Maintain good health by consuming foods rich in protein, vitamins, and minerals.
  4. Avoid consuming alcoholic beverages for at least 48 hours before the procedure.
  5. Shower and clean the area to be transplanted thoroughly before the procedure.
  6. Do not cut the hair in the area to be transplanted before the procedure.

After a beard and mustache transplant, the following instructions should be followed:


  1.  Keep the transplanted area dry and clean.
  2.  Avoid touching the transplanted area with anything, including shaving, for a period ranging from 3 to 5 days.
  3.  Avoid smoking and drinking alcohol for up to two weeks.
  4.  It is advised to avoid strenuous physical activities for up to 2-3 days.
  5.  Refrain from taking medications that may affect the healing process unless prescribed by the doctor.
  6.  It is recommended to avoid direct sunlight exposure for long periods for 10-14 days.


It is important to follow the doctor's instructions after the procedure to achieve the best results from the transplant.
