Beard Cultivation In Turkey

Beards are once again at the peak of fashion. A beard frames a man’s face and gives him a distinguished, masculine appearance.

However, up to 50% of men have difficulty growing a full beard. For many people, this is no problem, but for some, if hair grows only in patches or not at all, it can be detrimental to their sense of well-being. That’s because the growth of a bushy beard is considered a sign of masculinity for men.

The solution lies in beard hair transplantation in Turkey, which is a surgical procedure consisting of thickening and thinning areas of the beard with follicular units taken from a donor area of ​​the scalp. After a few months, the hairs of the hair bulbs implanted in the face will grow naturally, taking on the characteristics of beard hair.

What Is a Beard Transplant?

Simply put, with a beard transplant in Turkey you take hair and hair grafts from a donor area ( the back of the head or the lower parts of the chin) and implant them in targeted areas to restore facial hair.

Often the success of beard implants is such that only one operation is necessary to obtain an excellent result. Since you use your hair, the beard will look natural and will not show signs of surgery.

Are You a Good Candidate For Beard Cultivation?

Nowadays, beard transplants in Turkey are incredibly popular. Yet, like any other cosmetic surgery procedure, there are some essential criteria for undergoing surgery.

The main thing is whether you have enough hair to be able to take from the donor area. The two areas often used are the back and sides of the head.

During the consultation, the surgeon examines your scalp and assesses whether you have enough hair to extract, given that the neck and jaw may also be suitable donor areas.

In addition, the doctor also examines your general health, asking if you suffer from any conditions, including hormonal disorders, heart disease, or diabetes.

Finally, a beard transplant clinic may require patients to have a minimum age, which is usually 22 years old. This is because, at that age, the doctor can diagnose the extent of hair loss and can plan treatment accordingly.

Beard Transplant Types at Lerra Clinic

There are several methods for performing beard transplantation in Turkey. The two most common techniques that are adopted are:

  1. Follicular unit extraction (micro FUE) 

FUE is perhaps the most popular hair transplant technique. The surgeon extracts hair follicles from the donor area one by one and implants them in the recipient area.

FUE is the technique preferred by many patients because it leaves no scars, has a rapid healing process and is almost painless.

  1. Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)

In the FUT procedure, the surgeon cuts a strip of tissue from the back of the head from which he then harvests hair follicles.

This technique is used to treat larger areas of hair loss and is a relatively invasive procedure, as it leaves permanent scars in the donor area, and may be more painful during the healing phase. 

Cost of Beard Transplant in Turkey

The cost of a beard transplant in Turkey is an essential factor to consider since it affects not only the type of procedure to be adopted but also which clinic the operation is performed. You have to want the best care possible at the cheapest price.

In light of the above, what prices can you expect in Turkey? The price range for a beard hair transplant in Turkey is between $1,000 and $2,000.

This is a cost that is worth bearing. Some clinics offer a range of payment and financing options that allow you to access more expensive treatments. Any packages or financing options will be explained to you during our free consultation.

Preparing For A Beard Hair Transplant

Beard implants may seem complex at first, but we are here to dispel this myth. Whether it is FUT or FUE beard transplants, the surgery usually follows the three steps given below:


The process starts with the hair being chopped. To allow the surgeon to see your scalp well, some clinics can totally shave your beard, while others will only leave about 1 mm of hair growing back. To keep you from hurting during the extraction, you will next be given a topical anesthetic.

The surgeon either removes a strip of tissue (FUT) or individual hair follicles (micro FUE) from the donor area, depending on the kind of surgery.

Beard Hair Transplant Surgery

Once the surgeon has extracted the necessary grafts, a short break follows. Afterward, patient care comes back into focus, so you are given another local anesthetic to ensure you won’t feel any pain.

The surgeon carefully implants hair follicles one by one into the recipient area, taking care to place them strategically to create a full beard.

Healing Process

After beard transplant surgery in Istanbul, you can go home and most patients need a day to fully recover. Some small scabs may appear around the new beard hairs, but they should flake off naturally after a few days.

After a week, you can return to your normal shaving routine. After 2 or 3 weeks, the implanted hairs fall out. Don’t worry: this is a normal phase of healing.

Next, new hairs begin to grow, and you can expect to see a fuller beard appear.

After a Beard Transplant Procedure

After a beard transplant in Turkey, you should try not to expose your skin to strong sunlight. If you go out in the sun, you must apply a high SPF cream (perfume-free lotion with SPF 50 is best) which must be applied to the implant area for several months.

There is no real danger to the operations. During the early recovery period, there may be some mild side effects such as slight swelling, inflammation, and tenderness. But these side effects will pass quickly.

The first new whiskers can appear as early as two months after the procedure, although, of course, this is slightly different for each patient.

After 12 months, the beard will grow strongly. At this point, you will be able to style your beard as you wish.

The goal of beard transplant at Lerra Clinic is to achieve thick, even, and lifelong beard growth.
