Beard Transplant Healing Process
It is completely normal to experience swelling, redness, mild bruising and sensitivity after the operation. These are common slight side effects.
Noticing your chin and cheeks swelling might be concerning at first but there is nothing to worry about apart from being unable to eat and speak properly. Some tiny crusts are likely to appear as a result of the surgery.
It is also expected during the 7-10 days period that follows the operation. Having these crusts after 10 days can be considered an unusual situation. The open wounds may result obligatory antibiotic usage.
The wounds are more vulnerable to any type of infection. Especially the first seven days of the post-operational period, antibiotics may be recommended accordingly. Mostly, the beard transplant healing process does not cause too much pain.
It is important to be in contact with your doctor after the operation. Every unusual appearance should be reported as soon as possible.
How do we do the beard transplantation?
We use the Follicular Unit Extraction – FUE technique in our beard transplant surgeries. Besides being a widely used hair transplant technique, it has some desirable advantages compared to other transplant techniques.
In Follicular Unit Extraction Technique, we remove the hair including its follicles from the donor area and place them in the chosen area.
A normal surgery takes from 2 to 5 hours. During this time, the patient does not feel any pain under the effect of the anesthesia. The donor area will get oval scars as a result of the operation.
FUE is known for its shorter recovery time after the operation. Relatively, in most cases it meets the need of the one who wants to have a beard transplant.
Can you shave after beard transplant?
There is not a determined period that needs to pass after the operation before you shave your beard. It depends on how soon your wounds heal and how your body responds to the operation. You need to check the status of your operation area before you consider shaving.
Initially, you need to be sure that all of your wounds have healed and your skin is free from extra sensitivity. Scabs that appeared as a result of the healing process, need to be cleared away if you ever start shaving.
Usually, your face gets ready for shaving in 2-3 weeks after the operation. Taking into account that everybody has their unique way to heal, you can decide when to start shaving.
