Mustache Hair Transplant

mustache transplant 1

Beards, which are very important accessories for men to express their unique style, are also indispensable for those who care about their care and appearance. The beard fashion dating back centuries is still maintained by many men today. However, most men complain that their mustache does not grow for various reasons. Mustache transplantation is applied to men aged 24 and over who complain about the density and shape of their mustaches. The process of adding the upper lip hair to the upper lip area for the process of growing or thickening is called mustache transplantation treatment. In this process, a method called FUE is used. In this method, local anesthesia is used and micro-surgery is applied for 2-3 hours and the procedure is painless. In order for the planted hair to be fed in a healthy and comfortable way, too much planting should not be done.

With the FUE method, hair follicles are transplanted into the skin layer of the patient. The person who wants to have transplantation determines how much hair follicles will be taken from which part of his hair. The hair follicles taken should be up to 0.7 mm and the transplantation process is carried out on the mustache area of the person with the help of sowing tools. Approximately 4 months after the first planting, sparse areas may be present, and in this case, it is possible to perform a new planting procedure. Mustache transplantation can be performed not only on corners, but also on people with sparse mustaches or those who have mustache loss due to different reasons such as injury, burns, cuts. Men who complain about mustache density can have mustache transplantation when the donor area is suitable and meets the mustache transplantation process conditions. Whether the procedure conditions are fulfilled or not is determined in the hospital with the help of certain tests.

On the day of mustache transplantation, an easy-to-wear and removeable clothing should be preferred so that it does not rub against your face. It is recommended not to smoke before and after mustache transplantation, as smoking makes the mustache transplantation process and the healing process difficult. Also, alcohol should not be used. If you are using a regular medication, you should inform your expert before the operation. If you have a mustache, you should not cut it yourself. After the analyzes made on the day of the mustache transplantation, the clinic should be shortened if necessary.

The nape regions are generally preferred as the donor region. Depending on the sparseness or cornering of the mustache area of the person being treated, 300 to 500 roots are collected. The collected roots are cleaned and sorted and placed in the channels opened in the mustache area. Shock shedding may occur 2-3 weeks after mustache transplantation. But this shock shedding is not seen in everyone. If shock shedding is present, the mustaches start to grow again in the middle of the fourth month and continue to grow in the normal course of growth. 6 months after the mustache planting process, the transplanted roots begin to cling to their place and continue to grow in the normal cycle.
