Common Causes of Facial Hair Loss
There are many reasons which can cause facial hair loss. Inflammation, and Infections, Ringworm disease, Psoriasis, and Sores are the most common causes of facial hair loss.
Inflammation is a complex process that involves different types of immune cells, clotting proteins, and signalling molecules, all changing over time. Infection refers to the invasion and multiplication of a pathogen within your body. Meanwhile the body’s protective response to infection is inflammation.
Ringworm is an infection of the skin commonly caused by a fungus. It’s called “ringworm” because it can cause a circular rash that is usually red and itchy. Anybody could get ringworm. The fungi causing this infection can live on the skin, surfaces, and household items like clothing, towels, and bedding.
Psoriasis is a skin disorder that multiplies skin cells by up to 10 times faster than normal. This makes the skin form into bumpy red patches that are covered with white scales. They can grow anywhere, but most of them appear on the scalp, knees, elbows, and lower back.
Sores may appear on any of your mouth’s soft tissues including your mouth’s lips, cheeks, gums, tongue, floor, and roof. On your oesophagus, you can even develop mouth sores, the tube which leads to your stomach.
If anything else causing your loss of hair, we will inform you about the issue. Our doctors are knowledgeable and experts on their subjects.
Hormonal disorders and metabolic diseases can also cause facial hair loss. It is important to determine your cause of facial hair loss before the procedure. We will provide the best diagnosis for you when our doctors examine you before the operation.

Beard and Moustache Transplantation Operation
Beard and Moustache transplantation operation usually lasts for two to five hours. However, this time frame may differ for each subject. Our doctors will operate while you are under the effect of anaesthesia.
There are three types of anaesthesia:
General Anesthesia: The person is unconscious and numb in general anaesthesia, which is the most comprehensive type of anaesthesia.
Regional Anesthesia: The person is not asleep in regional anaesthesia. He is awake, and his senses are working, including vision, sound, taste, and scent.
Local anaesthesia: In small surgeries, nurses apply this to a specific location with very thin needles. The effect lasts 15-20 min.
This means that in the hands of our expert doctors, you will not feel any pain.
Beard transplant is slightly different from hair transplant, as beard strength will vary from person to person. If a deficiency happens, doctors will consider the beard size, and harmonize the new follicles with the existing hair. During the procedure, beard hair growth directions are taken into account to obtain a good natural-looking outcome.
To be more convenient, we can say that Follicular Unit Transplantation(FUE) is a common technique to transplant facial hair. It is also a common technique in hair transplantation.
In this technique, our doctors extract your hair from the back of your head and transplant it to the required areas. Since it is your natural hair, it won’t look fake, first of all. Our expert doctors will work on each graft one by one to please you with the aesthetic results. With FUE, you will not feel pain, and you will not have any scars on the back of your head.
Usually, you will need 500-800 grafts for your moustache, 200-350 grafts for each of your sideburns, 600-1200 grafts for a goatee, and 1000-2000 grafts for each cheek beard.
After The Operation
You can start washing your face 24-48 hours after the operation. There will be no trace left in the body and neck area. In 2 to 3 days, planted hair follicles show up. The blood supply in the plantation area is going to increase, which causes acne-like tiny rednesses in hair follicles for 2-3 days. Because the blood coming out of the tiny holes is coagulated, you can observe redness that can last for 4 to 6 hours depending on the number of roots. Those tiny rednesses which lead to better hair follicle nutrition start disappearing in less than a week. This also means that you will get back to your daily life as soon as possible after the transplantation.
After the transplantation, the hair will fall out 2 weeks after surgery and continue to re-grow at around 3 months; after that, your facial hair will be permanent. We recommend you to do your first shaving after a month from the operation since it is sufficient time for your new facial hair roots to settle perfectly. In six months, you will start to see the final results of the operation. After a year, you will see your facial hair intense and very natural looking. For two years after the procedure, your facial hair roots will continue to grow stronger.
When the procedure is complete, our doctors will inform you about the post-operation process and how you should take care of the planted hair.
Beard and Moustache Transplantation Costs
