The average man has approximately 10,000 to 20,000 hair follicles on his face. Although this sounds like a lot, hairs from these follicles can grow sporadically or not at all. Fortunately, a beard transplant effectively fills in these patches, resulting in a full beard that you can sculpt to your heart’s content.
Over 35,000 patients have gained a new lease of confidence thanks to their successful hair transplant at Elithair. As the market leaders, our innovative techniques achieve natural-looking results due to the careful distribution of the hair grafts.

Why have a beard transplant?
For men, facial hair is very important. Sparse or absent beard hair can greatly impact a man’s self-confidence and this is deep-rooted in human nature. Hair in these areas of the face was (and still is) considered the most visual way of communicating masculinity and dominance. Therefore, men who have a hard time growing full beards naturally, seek a facial hair transplant to improve this.
A beard transplant gives the face a handsome contour and emphasises masculine features. This procedure is carried out anywhere within the typical “beard area” – so the chin, moustache, cheeks, and sideburns. Furthermore, any combination of these areas of the face can be performed as well as all connecting areas, such as the moustache or sideburns.
Is a beard hair transplant permanent? A hair transplant is the only long term solution to hair loss and this includes hair in the beard area. The results of this treatment are long-lasting, therefore it’s the only visibly permanent treatment.
Dr Balwi and his team of experts are highly experienced in achieving a natural-looking beard hair density. Hence, they are considered the leading hair transplant clinic in Turkey. The procedure only takes between 4-9 hours, so only one day is needed. Additionally, the beard can be transplanted alongside a head hair transplant.
How does it work?
A beard transplant in Turkey is performed on an outpatient basis by our team of specialists. The procedure usually takes a few hours, depending on how many hair grafts are needed.
Loosening of the hair roots using the FUE technique
Firstly, the beard area and donor area receive a local anaesthetic to make the treatment more comfortable for the patient.
Using the follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique, the hair roots (grafts) are individually extracted from the donor area. This process uses a specialist tool with a micromotor to loosen each hair before they are extracted one by one and placed into a biotin-rich solution.
Opening the channels in the beard area
The Sapphire hair transplant technique is used to open the channels for the beard transplant procedure. The benefit of this technique is that the beard hairs can be inserted in the correct direction of growth with more precision. Therefore, the results look more natural compared to other methods.
Sapphire blades also create smaller channel openings which means that a thicker beard hair density can be achieved – thus ensuring you reach your beard goals.
Inserting the individual hair grafts into the beard area
Once the channels are opened, the extracted hairs are individually inserted into the channels. Our specialists carefully implant the donor beard hairs to the precise depth and direction that beard hair naturally grows in. After a few months, the transplanted hair will start to grow.

How much does it cost for a beard transplant?
The price of a beard transplant greatly depends on the number of hair grafts that are needed to achieve perfect results. How many grafts do I need for a full beard? The number of hair grafts you need for a thick beard depends on the desired beard density and where in the beard area you would like treatment. Firstly, our team determine how large the bald areas are, or whether it’s a case of filling in patchy areas. This then helps us to determine how many hair grafts will be needed in order to achieve the desired results.
During a free hair analysis, our team will analyse pictures that you’ve supplied to us in order to determine what has caused your hair loss. This will allow us to treat your hair loss more effectively.
With our attractive, all-inclusive packages, you have full cost transparency. Our package cost not only includes the price of the treatment but also your accommodation, VIP transfers in Turkey, English interpreters, 24/7 customer service, aftercare medication and products, and much more.
Unfortunately, there isn’t a solution to grow a beard fast. The density and speed that your beard grows depend on your genetics, hormones and hair follicles. These 3 main factors determine your beard hair growth. Although improving your diet, exercising more regularly and looking after your skin can help improve your hair growth, if you don’t naturally have a thick beard then it’s unlikely that these changes will improve that. Therefore, a hair transplant is the best solution.
Low testosterone is the cause of a thin beard in some cases. If you have extremely low levels of testosterone then you may have no or very little facial hair. In this case, the cause for your thinning beard is hormonal and cannot be rectified naturally.
Due to the innovative methods that Elithair use, scarring is kept to a minimum. To extract the donor hairs from the back of the head we use the FUE method which only leaves tiny puncture scars where the hairs were extracted. Sometimes these wounds heal without scarring, but any scarring can be easily hidden with the surrounding hairs.
Typically, men start to grow their beard around the age of 18 – which is towards the end of puberty. Some men may not grow a beard fully until their 30’s but it’s hard to predict when, or if a full beard will appear. It can take years for men to grow a full beard and some are unable to grow a full beard at all.
