DHI Beard and Moustache Transplantation

DHI Beard Transplantation

In general, DHI Beard Transplantation is the process of filling the gaps in the beard or creating a new beard for beardless patients (“köse” in Turkish).

Two methods can be used for this procedure:
1. Use of beard hair for beard transplantation
2. Use of scalp hair for beard transplantation

Beard-to-Beard Procedure

This method is usually applied to the patients who have patchy or sparse beard or scars caused by an accident.  The follicles extracted from the beard itself adapt to the beard much more quickly. In this method, it is essential that the number of grafts the patient needs can be provided under the chin.

From Scalp to Beard Plantation

This method is usually applied for patients with zero facial hair or excessive sparseness of patches. Hair follicles extracted from the area between the two ears on the back of the neck and transplanted one by one in the growing direction of the patient’s beard with pens 0.6 mm. in diameter.

Regardless of method, the key to beard transplantation is that the beard follicles must be arranged into single grafts and kept in special solutions.

In beard transplantation, the patient fells pain only during the administration of anesthesia. We have managed to minimize the surgical pain by using very few needles with the latest pressure anesthesia technique. Therefore, beard transplantation can be described as a painless procedure. Of course, the patient’s pain threshold is important at this point.

No. In beard transplantation, it is in no way understood that beard transplantation is done because sufficient density is given with the DHI pen technique and the planting is done in accordance with the direction of growth of the beard.
