Recovery After Beard Transplant
The recovery after a beard transplant is fast. It takes one or at most two days to get back to your normal activities. There is really not much to recover from as the procedure is virtually pain-free and easy. From a physical standpoint, you could schedule your beard transplant on a Friday and be back in the office on Monday without missing a beat.
Many of our patients take about a week off from work. This will allow the small incision (rather like pinpricks) in the donor area of your scalp to completely scab over and heal. Once this happens, they will be virtually undetectable.
Your surgeon will give you a set of instructions for post-op hair and facial care to ensure the best results.
After that, it’s just a matter of time to wait for your beard to grow. After a few weeks, the hair will begin to fall out – do not be alarmed. It’s a normal part of the growth cycle. It can then begin to grow in again at the normal rate, giving you a beautiful and permanent new beard!
