Beard transplantation is performed by removing hair follicles from the back of the head, the occipital area, under the chin or jowl area (if the patient has them) and implanting them in the desired areas of the face. Beard transplantation is a permanent solution for those patients with a low density or irregular beard and with long-term results if performed correctly.
The DHI method is used for beard transplantation using a medical device called an implanter, designed to implant the follicles into the beard area. The reason we use the DHI method is that it will allow a faster recovery of the skin, and will allow to achieve a higher density.
Depending on the amount of hair required to repopulate the area, the operation can last from 2 to 4 hours. Unlike in traditional hair transplantation, a patient can expect an already very significant and evident growth in just 6 months. Hair growth usually begins around two/three months. In less than 10 months, patients will see the results of the beard transplant.
The most important feature of the implanter is the possibility of more effectively controlling the angle of implantation of the follicles. Normally, the hair is implanted at 46-60 degrees. However, the hair around the beard should be inserted between 10 and 20 degrees. With implanters, we can work at smaller angles, making the end result much more natural.
