The bearded man is in vogue. However, not all of us are lucky enough to have a thick and uniform beard as standard. Luckily, there is a solution beard transplants..
A beard transplant is a very similar procedure to hair grafting: it is safe, effective and with permanent results. In addition, the beard transplant has some advantages over the hair implant: the intervention is faster and the postoperative process simpler.
How are beard transplant done?
The first fundamental step in carrying out a beard transplant is to have a good hair diagnosis. This is true for both the beard implant and the regular hair implant.
In this first diagnosis, the doctor responsible for the surgery should examine the hair, preferably with a trichological dermatoscope. This will determine your suitability as a hair transplant candidate, as well as whether hair medicine treatments are necessary to prepare the hair.
The beard transplant surgery is simple but very meticulous, which is why it usually takes more than four hours. In the first phase, the necessary follicular units are extracted from the donor area: the cervical area. This hair is genetically designed not to fall out, so it will not do so even if there is alopecia in the beard.
In the second phase, the follicles are implanted in the beard. This is where the surgeon must show his experience and talent, since he will decide the position, depth and angle of each of the hairs. This is vital in achieving a result that looks natural.
After surgery, a washing should be carried out 24 or 48 hours later. Scabs should also be removed about three weeks later. Likewise, it is very important to carry out hair medicine treatments regularly so that the hair looks thicker, brighter and healthier, such as PRP or hair mesotherapy.
About a month or two after the beard transplant, the implanted hair will fall out, just like with regular hair transplants. This phenomenon is called the ‘desert’ phase or shock loss and is completely normal. It means that the surgery is working, that the implanted hair has suffered stress and falls out, but that its base is still there and that it will grow back.
When the shock loss phase ends, about 3 or 4 months after surgery, the hair grows naturally and does so at a different pace for each patient. One year after the surgery (and, in some cases, 18 months later) the final results of the beard transplant can be seen.
At Instituto Médico del Prado we follow the same policy with our beard transplants as with our hair transplants. We have a results guarantee through which, in the event that the result of the beard transplant is not satisfactory, we perform a second, shorter surgery.
Price of a beard transplant in Madrid
The price of a beard graft depends on the experience of the surgeon, their expertise and that of their team. A beard transplant is more laborious than a hair transplant, since only follicular units can be taken with one follicle and anesthesia must be administered to each square centimeter.
Consequently, the price of a beard transplant starts from 5 euros per follicular unit. In our case, this amount includes the consultation with Dr. Espinosa, previous and subsequent treatments (they can be extended up to a year), the results guarantee, interest-free financing, the hair restoration pack, the postoperative washing and the removal of scabs.
