moustache transplantation

The definitive treatment for the lack of mustache on upper lip or for the hair loss is the mustache transplantation. The hair roots to be transplanted for the replacement of mustache, are extracted from the nape similar to hair transplantation. For this, the hairy skin strip is cut and sliced into hair roots one by one. Afterwards, the hair roots are transplanted one by one to the mustache-lacking areas.

The transplanted hair roots keep their previous characteristics and the mustache continues growing. Therefore the mustache should be cut periodically. When the hair roots are transplanted so close to each other, they can not be fed. That’s why the transplantation density should allow them to be fed. After the transplantation following the growth of the hair, (after 4-6 months), re-transplantation may be made to rare mustache areas.

Scars, surgical scars, burnt scars, mustache losses may completely be masked by transplantation. No-beard cases may also be treated through mustache transplantation. Only FUE technique should be applied in mustache transplantation because in FUT method the results are not satisfying. The hair roots extracted by 0.6-0.7 mm devices without using motors, concurrently should be transplanted without cutting the skin thus the transplantation process shortens and root necrosis may not occur since the roots are immediately transplanted.

Using thin tips avoid scars on the transplantation area during both extraction and transplantation.

The person self-determines the limits and the density of the transplantation.

When 1000 roots are transplanted to someone with no mustache at all, no-beard appearance will be removed but if more dense beard is needed than the number may be increased. In the event that the beard transplantation is made through FUE technique, no matter if it is dense or rare, it looks so natural that a hairdresser would not recognize the transplantation.

By FUE technique, demanded number of roots can be extracted and transplanted to the mustache area considering the natural development angle. The mustache transplantation is such an important operation which may not be made by assistant staff so it must be applied by the doctor himself/herself.

beard transplantation

Transplantation may be made by extracting the unnecessary roots of the beard for thickening the rare area. In this case unnecessary roots on the cheekbone were extracted and transplanted to the rare area just beneath. No scar remains when the extraction is made by 0.6-0.7 mm tips manually and carefully. Accordingly, by the perfect extraction, the roots can be extracted from the lower part of the beard, the chest, lower parts of the nape even the cheekbone and transplanted to the needed places. Root extraction from the dense parts looking bad also provides permanent epilation which is an additional advantage.

The beard is not like the hair. The density may vary in different people. Someone with obviously rare beard may not feel uncomfortable because of this. That’s why generally not much beard is needed for the transplantation. 

In case of a partial beard loss, the transplantation is made by taking the density of the surrounding area into account. If there is no beard, according to the request of the person and in line with the limits 1000-3000 roots may be transplanted. 

Generally 3000 roots beard transplantation gives satisfactory results. If the transplantation is going to be made only to the mustache area, then 400-800 roots will be enough. The extraction area may have a pinky appearance after 1-2 weeks. No scars left at the extraction area on the body or on the nape. In our operations, even when 10.000 roots were extracted from the nape it’s still indiscernible. 

The extraction area has an dark red appearance because of the blood clots caused by the needle and be removed by the first shower. 

The beard and mustache transplantation areas may be washed after 24-48 hours and the beard becomes visible as the blood clots are washed away and has an appearance of 2 or 3-day beard. For better nourishment of the transplanted beard by the body blood build up increases on the transplantation area and accordingly little red spots occur in 2-3 days. These spots vanishes in 1-2 weeks. The beard and mustache going on growing after the transplantation may be shaved by normal razor blades after 6 month(min.) The first shaving is recommended to be made after 6 month(min.).

After the 2nd week some part of the transplanted beard and mustache will be temporarily lost which is called shock loss. 4-8 months after the temporary loss all will be replaced. The quality increase in hair roots continues for some 2 years.
