How Is it Performed?

The procedure is performed by using the regular FUE method. Firstly, as many follicles as required are obtained from the nape (hair follicles in the arm or leg can also be used if suitable) and transplanted in the recipient area above the upper lip.

The surgery is performed under local anesthesia and completed within 2-3 hours. Patient does not feel any pain. The procedure leaves no suture marks. The hair follicles are implanted in the grooves opened up on the skin by micro-surgical methods, thus providing a fuller appearance in the area with patchy hairs.

The important point here is that the follicles are planted appropriately in the same direction of the existing hairs. This is directly correlated with the experience and skills of the physician.

After the procedure, it may be necessary to perform 2-3 sessions to complete the process. These sessions are performed with  8-9 months intervals.

What Are the Posoperative Instructions?

Firstly, it should be noted that that the healing process takes at least 10 days. This means that scabs may form in the process after the operation and small blood clots may occur in the hair follicles.

The patient is discharged with a special bandage on. These bandages stay for 3 days and should be completely kept dry.  After 3 days, the bandage is taken out and cleaned by the doctor at the scheduled follow-up.

In 15 days following the transplantation process, the implanted mustaches can be gently cut by a small scissors. Facial hair should not be shaved with a razor.

During the two-to-three-week period after transplantation, patients may experience “shock hair loss”, which is common in such kind of operations. Patients should be aware that it is nothing to be worried about, and the shed hair will grow back from the same follicles. After the 6th postoperative month, the final results will be visible and the mustache will return to the normal course.

How Much Does Mustache Transplantation Cost?

Mustache transplantation prices vary according to the operational criterias. Different physicans will charge different prices as the number of hair follicles needed by each person is different.  For this reason, the price for this procedure can be clarified after the examination by the specialist physician.
