Play Video
Hair loss in your beard area no longer needs to be the bane of your existence. Medical advancements have made stimulating natural hair growth possible, returning your beard to its former glory, growing one if you’ve transitioned, or making it denser than ever. A beard hair transplant in Turkey is your best bet for natural-looking results because of high surgical expertise and affordable costs. Here’s how it works and what to expect at Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic.

What Is a Beard Transplant?

A beard transplant is an innovative surgery for achieving a fuller beard (including the mustache and sideburns). It improves facial hair volume and density, filling in bald patches and making thinning hair or uneven growth a thing of the past. It’s a minimally invasive, outpatient surgical procedure performed under local anesthesia, meaning fast recovery and no overnight hospital stay.

How Does a Beard Transplant Work?

Here’s a step-by-step beard transplant procedure:

Hair Analysis and Planning

The first step is to analyze your beard a day before the surgery to estimate the necessary number of grafts, plan your hairline design, and tailor the transplant to your needs and preferences. We will use the cutting-edge Docu Studio Arc for 3D hair analysis, getting precise measurements for a personalized procedure.

Anesthesia

The procedure starts with administering local anesthesia to numb the donor and recipient sites. You’ll feel no pain during the surgery, making your beard transplant go smoothly.

Graft Harvesting

Once the anesthesia takes effect, the hair follicles will be extracted from the donor area (typically the back of your head) using a micro-motor surgical tool. It punctures the skin around follicular units to loosen them, enabling them to be removed with forceps. A specialist will load them into multiple Choi pens to facilitate direct implantation.

Hair Implantation

The harvested hair grafts will be directly implanted into the recipient area using the previously loaded Choi pens. They have a hollow needle and forceps, allowing them to insert individual follicles at the correct angle without incision.
The DHI Hair Transplant method is the preferred beard transplant technique because of high precision, minimal scalp trauma, fast healing and recovery, and maximum graft survival.

Beard Transplant Costs: US vs. Turkey

The average beard transplant cost in the US is $9,500. Clinics in Turkey charge significantly less, with $3,200 being the median price.
That doesn’t mean quality takes a backseat in Turkey. Highly skilled surgeons like Dr. Serkan Aygin, state-of-the-art medical technology, and first-class clinics ensure top-notch results and outstanding patient care. The cost ultimately depends on the hair transplant clinic, the surgeon’s expertise and experience, the necessary number of grafts, and the transplant method.
The best part? The price covers all-inclusive services without hidden costs. Here’s what every package at Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic includes:


● Online consultation
● Three-night stay at a four-star hotel
● VIP transfer between the airport, hotel, and the clinic
● 3D hair analysis
● Pre-op blood test
● Anesthesia
● Post-op medication (painkillers, antibiotics, and anti-inflammatory meds)
● Low-level laser therapy to boost cellular activity
● Language interpretation services
● Follow-ups


These services ensure a stress-free hair transplant experience, leaving you to handle only your flight ticket.

When Can You Expect the Results?

The final result of a beard transplant is visible within 10–12 months after the procedure. Transplanted hair follicles fall out within the first three months but not before they take root and stimulate beard growth. After that shock loss, your beard will start growing naturally.
You’ll notice the results within 4–7 months after the surgery. However, the outcome shows around the one-year mark, when you will enjoy a full beard with optimal density.

When Is One Suitable for a Beard Transplant?

If your beard is still growing, waiting to see if it will reach a higher density is best. After all, beard thickening often occurs around age 30. Of course, each case is unique because genes play a role. Still, be patient if you’re under 25. If you’ve transitioned, wait at least 12 months after starting your testosterone therapy to get a beard transplant. Remember that two sessions may be necessary (typically with a one-year gap) to achieve optimal density.

How Many Grafts Does a Beard Transplant Typically Require?

The number of grafts for a beard transplant depends on the area you wish to cover. For instance, you may need 2,000–3,000 grafts (on average) for a complete reconstruction due to alopecia barbae, trauma, or scarring or after transitioning. Fewer grafts can do the trick if your beard has bald patches or you want it to be denser. Your desired beard design also plays a part. For instance, a goatee typically requires 600–1,100 grafts. A mustache usually needs 350–500, while 200–300 grafts can cover one sideburn. As for the beard on the cheeks, the average graft number is 500–1,000. Your surgeon will determine the optimal graft number when analyzing your beard. Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic’s award-winning Docu Studio Arc is the best device for accurate calculations.
