Beard and mustache transplantation
What is beard and mustache transplantation?
Growing a beard and mustache for some can be difficult because beard hair loss, like hair loss on the head, is common among men. So, facial hair transplantation is the right solution for many. Beard and mustache hair transplantation is done without surgery by transferring hair follicles from the donor area, i.e. the back of the head, to the recipient area or to be treated, i.e. the chin and mustache.
Most of the time, hair follicles, which look like strips of tissue, are taken from the head because the hair on the head is healthier, stronger, and more vibrant compared to the hair on the beard or mustache. But do not worry, when the transplanted hair grows, it will look natural, like chin hair, not like head hair.
Beard and mustache transplantation techniques
Beard and mustache transplantation is almost the same as hair transplantation. The only difference is that more than one technique is used for head hair transplantation (beard and mustache transplantation), for example DHI, FUI or FUT (follicular unit transplantation) can be used. As for beard (chin hair) and mustache transplantation, it is recommended to use the DHI technique, which is the most common and widely used technique in facial hair transplantation.
There are three basic techniques used in beard and mustache transplantation as follows:
The DHI technique is the best for beard and mustache hair transplantation, where the follicles are taken from the donor area by means of a micro motor- to be implanted directly in the recipient area using CHOI Implanter pens. With just one click, the doctor can open a channel and implant the follicle at the same time. The operation takes about 6-8 hours, and a maximum of 3,500 hair follicles are transplanted.
Mega DHI technology
Choi pens are used in this technique in two sessions over two consecutive days. A maximum of 7,000 follicles can be transplanted using this technique, which gives the hair a more dense and attractive look.
Extremely DHI technology
Extremely DHI is similar to DHI and goes through the same stages; However, this technique allows the cultivation of 5000 follicles in one session, which ranges between 12-15 hours.

Medical examinations: Examinations, such as blood and skin tests, are performed to ensure that the patient is ready for beard and mustache transplantation.
Preparation for the extraction process: At this stage, the donor area is shaved to prepare it for the stage of extracting the hair follicles, after which the patient is anesthetized.
Extraction of hair follicles: Healthy hair follicles are extracted from the donor area using a micro-motor and placed in a saline solution to preserve them until they are transplanted into the recipient area.
Implantation stage: The follicles are placed in Choi pens, and with just one click, the channels are opened, and the follicles are implanted at the same time.
