What is a beard transplant?

Beard transplant is a plastic procedure for implanting hair from the back of your head (in most cases) to your beard area.

Most often beard transplant is performed with Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method. A surgeon takes individual hairs in follicles (up to 7,000 hairs, but usually — around 2,500) from the donor area and transplants them into tiny incisions on the area of your future beard.

The procedure takes from 2 to 5 hours. You will feel no pain — only sense similar to pinching. The recovery is speedy.

The result — a lush looking well-cared beard in 7 months or so. Transplanted hairs will grow like beard hairs. They can slightly differ in color but remain natural and healthy looking.

How much is a beard transplant in 2020?

The beard transplant cost starts from $1,500 and can reach up to $7,000.

This range is explained with:

  • a country. For instance, the price for a beard transplant in the USA, the UK, Canada is 1.5-3 times higher than in Turkey and Poland. That’s because medical services in some states are more pricey than in others. Thus, patients prefer to travel overseas to get a cheap beard transplant.
  • a clinic. Medical facilities with strong brand, outstanding history offer procedures at higher prices that newly opened clinics. The last ones conversely offer more affordable costs to attract patients.
  • doctor’s skills. Specialists who have more extensive experience can have higher rates for consultation or surgery.
  • packages. Some centers provide international tourists with special offers which cover a beard transplant, medicines, transfer, assistance with accommodation and translation (if required).
  • a method of beard plantation. The cost is higher for new techniques as robotic ARTAS transplant, DHI, Sapphire FUE. FUE or FUT cost less.
  • a number of grafts. The full beard transplant cost is more expensive than if you need only partial. The total price will depend on the cost per graft. A beard transplant specialist will consult you how many grafts you need to get a desired outcome.

Trying to get hair replacement procedure in the USA is not only expensive and behind the expertise that other countries like South Korea or in my case, Turkey, are known for. From day one, Bookimed was extremely responsive and answered all my questions quickly and expertly, while getting me the best price for my hair replacement procedure. I was initially given a quote for Istanbul Plastic Surgery Clinic, but later given an even better rate and consultation with Adem & Havva Hair Clinic. I went with the FUE hair method which is less costly than the newer DHI method, and I believe just as effective, although a little more recovery is needed by about a few days with FUE method. Do your homework on what you want done for your needs and balance the price and see what works for you. Remember that two prices are offered for either procedure: "Shaven head" and "Unshaven head," With the shaven head being the cheaper cost but I believe more sanitary. Unshaven method does look better while you heal (you keep your regular hair) but I just believe removing all hair to allow doctors a clean base for the hair procedure is the best way to go, and cheaper and more sanitary too without sacrificing quality. Your cost will vary depending on your consultation with BookImed that includes sending them pictures with specific instructions. But ultimately the amount of hair grafts you need will determine the final cost. But BookiMed will work to find the very best deal for you based on procedure you've chosen. But compare other clinics if you feel better to see that Bookimed will give you the best rate for comparable procedures from other clinics. I recommend getting to Turkey about 3-4 days early so you can sight see this beautiful country before your hair procedure. They will arrange all transportation and hotel accommodations for you if you wish extra nights and will pick you up at airport and take you to your hair procedures. I cannot stress enough that my visit and my procedure was excellent and I highly recommend Bookimed for hair and even plastic surgery procedures ( I will do a chin lift next). It has only been a week since my procedure was done and can post pics based on my current status of healing. But I have not suffered any issues or side effects and my scalp and hair are healing and growing properly. The clinic will follow my hair process for one year to ensure my hair grows out well and I am completely satisfied. I hope this review helps many of you out there. I want to give a special thank you to Dr. Hassan Jabar from Bookimed, Maryum our hair nursing consultant and coordinator, Serpil Kargin, the Adem and Havva Hair Clinic Office manager, and finally our driver, Mr. Zafer who was very kind and helped me with all my transportation and covid testing needs to return back to the USA.

Beard Transplant FAQ

Where to find a cheap beard transplant?

The most affordable options are in Turkish centers with average beard transplant cost of $2,100.

Why robotic and DHI beard transplants are more expensive than other methods?

A hair transplant specialist provides robotic beard transplant with ARTAS system. It excludes any medical error and guarantees the best possible result. Even the most skillful specialists damage around 20% of follicles taken manually while the robot extracts hair bulbs with 95% accuracy. It leaves no scars as well. ARTAS also can plant more grafts unlike a person who is bent to get tired. Robotic beard transplant is available only in several clinics and costs more because of limited offers and high demand.

  • DHI is for Direct Hair Implantation. A beard transplant expert extracts the follicles and implants it with a special Choi pen directly to the beard zone. There are 2 main benefits of DHI — no scars and no need to pre-shave. However, the procedure requires more resources as doctor’s attention and time and thus, the price is higher than a typical FUE beard transplant cost.

What is the best method for me? Choose the option based on your preferences of the result, time, and budget. You can consult with Bookimed medical coordinator for free and get information on beard transplant methods and their costs.

Can I grow a beard if it's not in my genes?

Yes, you can. After the procedure, hair follicles will grow like ordinary facial hair, so you can shave it and adapt the form you like.

Am I a good candidate to get a beard transplant?

You are a good candidate for a beard transplant if you have problems with facial hair, want to hide any scars or burns in this area or want to grow a beard of your dream. Be ready to give 300-500 grafts from your hair on the head to each cheek — still, they will re-grow soon.

How long does a beard transplant take to heal?

After the FUE procedure a patient experiences some redness and swelling. It disappears in 1-2 days. In 5-7 days after the transplant expect the hair to fall out. This happens because the body needs time to normalize processes and adapt new hairs. In 2 weeks the beard will grow back.

Can I shave after beard transplant?

Doctors recommend not to shave 10 days after the transplant. Afterwards you can shave it.

Are beard transplants safe?

The procedure has minimal risks. However, it is still a surgery requiring intervention and involves risks as scarring and infection. That’s why it is necessary to choose only certified clinic and experienced doctor who will provide a well-planned beard transplant.
