One of the important fields of activity of aesthetic medical is undoubtedly beard transplantation and the correct management of the process before and after the beard transplantation as well as in hair transplantation operationsprepares the basis for healthy development of hair follicles by increasing the efficiency of the intervention. Therefore, from this point of view, it is clearly seen that the right interventions should be followed after beard transplantation and the necessity of addressing the points to be considered. One of the main problems encountered after beard cultivation; Before talking about redness and scabbing, it will be an approach that contributes to the integrity of the subject in general terms.
Beard Transplantation Surgery
Beards and mustaches, which are indispensable for aesthetic appearance, are undoubtedly highly sensitive hair follicles due to their direct effect on the self-confidence of the individual and various treatment techniques have been developed in order to eliminate the dissatisfaction arising from the lack or absence. Beard cultivation, which is used actively in today’s developing medical technology and has an important place in health tourism; It can be defined as a treatment technique aiming to give the beard and mustache an aesthetic appearance in cases where the beard and mustache does not grow, sparse or fall out due to various reasons.
Unlike hair transplantation, Micro-FUE technique is used for beard transplantation, and with FUE technique, cells taken from the hair follicles on the back of the neck are drilled into the area to be transplanted. Here are the two advantages of FUE technique; It can be expressed as the fact that it allows the operation to be carried out very quickly and triggers the increase of the efficiencyof the operation as a result of minimum contact of the hair follicles with the air.
The last basic pointto be mentioned about beard transplantation operations; determination of sowing area and sowing density. Although the demands of the individual to be treated here are taken as a basis, it should be underlined that the sowing line will be drawn after the physician performs the necessary checks. Again, a stage that should be considered at this stage; planting is done in the direction of hair growth. In order to achieve the expected normalization level of hair follicles in the correct methodology, a time period of 6 to 9 months is necessary and it should be remembered that the physiological characteristics of the individual, the operation and the subsequent process play an active role in cases of prolongation or shortening of this period.
Compared to hair transplantation, the areas to be considered and focused on after beard transplantation are more limited and basically;
- Redness and crusting,
- Recovery process,
- First wash and shave,
- Maintenance process
It can be divided into four stages. The reason why the redness and crusting was first expressed in this stage; These conditions that occur in the first period after sowing often cause patients to worry and mislead them. Therefore, it would be more accurate to examine the process after beard cultivation as listed in the previous lines.
Redness and Crusting After Beard Transplantation
Redness and crusting after beard transplantation are quite simple complications and are time-consuming reactions. The appearance of acne-like redness in the hair follicles sown after the operation depends on the application of the FUE technique and is normally required and does not require any intervention. Crusting is a complication with the same characteristics as redness at the point of intervention, although it is caused by planting hair roots as holes.
Here you need to pay attention; In order to keep the redness and crusting conditions in the normal process, the beard planted area is to be kept away from any physical contact. Preventing contact with the planting area will prevent bacterial growth after the operation and will not damage the structure of the hairs that try to stick to the root. As a matter of fact, the crusting situation will usually begin to disappear by the 3rd day and the redness will disappear in a short time depending on the time.
Looking at all these; It should be underlined that the hair follicles should be kept away from physical intervention in order to ensure normal redness and crusting after the beard transplantation in the operational process and to avoid any abnormalities.
Healing Process After Beard Transplantation
The healing process after beard transplantation operations, which lasts approximately 3-6 hours, takes longer than the recovery process after the hair transplantation, since the treated area is a sensitive area such as a face, which causes the patient to prolong the stay of physical contact as stated in the previous paragraphs.Time can give you a hard time. The most important expression at the point of recovery after beard transplantation; The first 1 week after the operation will shape the whole process and can be easily circumvented with only a few simple measures.
While resting is recommended for the first 3 days after beard transplantation, other points to be considered can be listed as follows;
- It is recommended not to use alcohol and cigarettes in the first 3 days after the operation as in cigarette and alcohol use after hair transplantation. This will help accelerate the healing process.
- In order to prevent deformation of hair roots, activities that cause sweating, especially sexual intercourse and sports, should be avoided. The condition here is the same as the scope of sweating after hair transplantation; hair follicles in the most healthy way to hold and grow.
- In order to avoid any contact with the hair follicles, it should be avoided from turtlenecks and clothes likely to come into contact with the planting area such as weft.
- In order to accelerate the recovery process after the operation, a small nutrition program can be applied and in this program, protein group foods that are prominent in terms of tissue repair and especially vitamins A, E, C, D and B7 and B12 can be consumed.
- For the health of the bristles, which are quite sensitive for a while after planting, and try to hold onto their roots, attention should be paid to the way they sleep. It is advised by the experts to lay it on its back and to make contact with the cushion as much as possible.
As it can be seen, it is clearly seen that the factors that have an impact on the healing process of beard planting are almost overlapping when paired with the things to be considered after hair transplantation operations. The last part that should be underlined at this point; post-operative recovery process is carried out in coordination with the physician and the physician is informed of the whole process.
those who want to have beard transplantation within the scope of the healing process the most curious point for those who want to have beard cultivation is; it is a phase of shock shedding and is an area that needs to be emphasized because it causes high levels of anxiety in most of the patients. Shock shedding after beard transplantation is a normal process and time varies depending on various factors, but is usually seen in the second week after surgery. At this stage, the hair follicles that are shed will re-emerge in the process and the acceleration of the hair follicles will continue for approximately 2 years. Therefore, panicking in any way during the shock spill phase is an incomplete approach.
First Wash and Shave After Beard Transplantation
The first wash and shave after beard transplantation are undoubtedly important stages, and the wrong decisions taken during these stages will directly affect the health of the hair follicles. Here, most of the washing process It should be noted that the washing process is often performed in the clinic where the beard transplantationis performed, but for various reasons, the patients occasionally get up in case of the first washing in the home environment. The areas to be especially careful in the washing in the home environment; Redness and scaling will improve after washing, and during the shedding of the shells, the hair follicles should not be shed with these shells. the hair follicles should be treated with sensitivity in order not to fall out with these crust. The first wash performed in 2-4 days after the beard transplant operation; It is possible to examine in three stages such as lotion, foaming and washing
