Moustache Transplant for Men in Istanbul

While some men have impressive moustaches, others have difficulty in growing and maintaining one. The absence or loss of the moustache can stem from genetic factors, stress, or hormonal conditions as well as surgical scars. If you desire to have a thick and full moustache — a symbol of manhood, a part of the modern-day trends or religious requirements – HTI offers an effective method of treatment. Moustache Transplant Istanbul restores facial hair using grafts extracted from the scalp.

Providing full density and fullness, it is important to note that Moustache Transplant requires more details in comparison to the other hair transplantation procedures as the angle and direction of the hair differs greatly at the various parts of the moustache. Therefore, the experience of the medical team is crucial to the success of the surgery.

Candidates of Male Facial Hair Transplant

If you are experiencing hair loss or thinning on your facial area, regardless of reasons (as it can be hereditary conditions, hormonal issues, or even injuries), you should consider undergoing a Moustache Transplant in Istanbul to help you obtain fuller facial hair.

Since only the patient’s own hair follicles can be used for transplantation, a patient must have sufficient hair growth at the backside of the scalp. The number of grafts you need for male facial hair transplant will depend on the thickness and density of the current facial hair, as well as how much coverage you desire.

What is Alopecia Barbae?

Alopecia barbae is a specific form of the autoimmune disease alopecia areata that targets your facial hair. Hair loss from alopecia barbae typically occurs in small patches. You might notice one or more coin-sized patches on your jawline or on your neck with either thin facial hair or no facial hair at all. 

FUE Moustache Transplant Procedure

Your HTI surgeon will review information from the initial FREE consultation, such as age and facial structure — and whether the hair density at the backside of the scalp is sufficient for a transplant. By evaluating medical condition and your expectations, desires and demands — the number of hair follicles required for the implantation will be determined.

The transplantation methods used for Moustache Transplant Istanbul are identical with the ones used for FUE Hair Transplantation. The designated hair follicles at the backside of the scalp are extracted and once they are harvested, the surgical team implants the extracted hair follicles into the small incisions which are prepared at the recipient site. Considering the artistic nature of a Moustache Transplantation, a surgeon with utmost proficiency and expertise is needed. Expertise combined with a detailed plan is required as the direction and the angle of the hairs differs within facial hairs.

Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Direct Hair Implantation (DHI) are the two prominent techniques utilized for moustache restoration since they provide the most natural results. For each procedure, there must be sufficient donor hair with enough density. If the patient is experiencing male pattern baldness on his scalp, the donor site may not be able to meet the requirements of the operation. In such a case, the decision of which one to prioritize, the scalp or the moustache, is incumbent on the patient.

Benefits of Moustache Transplant

Since the decision-making period of any kind of hair transplant procedure requires all kinds of information, it is extremely important to be aware of the benefits and advantages of moustache transplant, including:

  • The moustache transplant is a minimally invasive procedure with no major cuts or sutures involved in the operation. With no visible scarring on the extraction site, the patient can leave the clinic shortly after surgery.
  • The surgery generally takes two to three hours. In most cases, patients return to their daily lives the next day; and protecting the scalp from harsh actions and extreme temperature conditions are the only major requirements of the post-operation period.
  • Any kind of surgery or operation leads to an expectation of pain, but the advanced technologies utilized in hair transplantations make it possible for the patients to undergo an operation without the discomfort caused by pain. Since local anesthetics are administered before the operation, the pain is very minimal.
  • Since the FUE incisions used for hair graft placement are not much invasive and the Choi pen operates without slitting, it will take a short time to recover from the moustache transplant surgery. For a few days, you will feel a slight numbness on your face, but you will be able to recover within a day or two.
  • The most prominent advantage of this procedure is that your patchy or thinning moustache will be replaced with naturally thick and vibrant facial hair. Moreover, since there will not be any kind of stitching scar, the natural look of the result will be enhanced.
  • While the new hair will take about 3 to 4 months to grow, once it reaches the planned form and length, your new moustache will permanently remain with you.
