Lars-Ove, 65 years old
For several years, Lars-Ove had been considering a beard transplant. Eventually, he decided to go ahead with the transplant and contacted us at Nordic Hair Clinic and our clinic in Gothenburg.
In beard transplantation, the principle is the same as in hair transplantation. With the FUE technique, we move hair from the donor area in the neck and implant the hair in the beard where the patient wants more fullness. It takes about 3 to 4 months before the beard starts to grow properly and after about 12 months you can see the maximum result.
Last November, Lars-Ove underwent his long-awaited beard transplant. The procedure itself went well, although he felt he didn’t really have a good grasp of all the steps that would take place in the process. Now he was happy to have carried out the operation, as he had been thinking about it for such a long time.
“I’m glad I’ve done this,” says Lars-Ove, “I’ve been thinking about this for many years.”
Rest, recovery and aftercare
After the procedure, it was time for rest and recovery. Sleep was no problem for Lars-Ove. Some people may find the first few nights a little awkward as it is important to protect the transplanted area. Our recommendation is to try to sleep in a slightly protected position – as best you can. Lars-Ove solved this by stuffing a few pillows behind his back when it was time to sleep.
As for the actual aftercare and washing of the transplanted area, it is important to follow the instructions given to you by the clinic.
“Maybe you were worried that you were doing it too hard in some way, I was dabbing with paper and stuff, and I had a special sponge, a cloth, that you usually use when you’re cleaning,” Lars-Ove says, “but I don’t think it was a problem so I just did what I was supposed to do.”
PRP treatments included in a beard transplant
When a person undergoes a beard transplant with us, three PRP treatments are always included. From the patient’s own blood, we extract the growth factors that are naturally present in the body and help in the healing process. The PRP treatment also allows the hair follicles to produce thicker and stronger hair.
First visit to a barber
9 months after Lars-Ove’s beard transplant, we at Nordic Hair Clinic took him to one of Sweden’s best barbers, Omar Salmoon, who works at Randevu salon. Lars-Ove received a haircut and styling with the best products for hair and beard from Noberu of Sweden.
