Beard transplants can help you get the beard you’ve always dreamed of! Learn about these important factors before getting the procedure.

A beard transplant can really help if you’re struggling with beard growth. It can give your beard a balanced, fuller look or give you the beard you’ve always dreamed of having. However, a beard transplant procedure isn’t a walk in the park, and it’s better to be aware of what it’ll be like before going for it. Here are the things you need to know before getting a beard transplant:

Time Length

The operation procedure for a beard transplant typically takes around 8 hours, depending on the area of work. Recovery time is longer and may take a couple of weeks to be completed. You should keep this time frame in mind, so you have more realistic expectations going in.

Possible After-Effects

Your transplanted beard will start to fall out 2 or 3 weeks after the procedure is done. This means your hair follicles have started growing, and you shouldn’t worry.

Possible Side-Effects

There is a risk of infection and bleeding after you’ve gotten the beard transplant. You should consult with your doctor if you’re experiencing unusually high levels of discomfort or bleeding. In case of an infection, you should seek medical help immediately. A beard transplant may also cause scarring on the area, which may disappear with time. You’ll also have to avoid caffeine immediately after the transplant to prevent the risk of high blood pressure that can lead to bleeding.

Transplant Hair

You’d be wondering where the hair used for beard transplant is sourced from. The good news is that it’s your own hair! The hair from behind your scalp is used for a beard transplant as it has the same thickness as regular beard hair. You’ll have to compromise some scalp hair for the procedure, so keep that in mind.

Style Choice

Many people are unaware of this, but you can totally decide the style for your transplanted beard. You can consult with your doctor beforehand and decide on a style you have in mind.
