What is Moustache Transplantation?
Moustache is an important element in men’s images. Moustaches add serious charisma when used properly. Apart from that, there are other benefits too. In fact, it is known that moustache is accepted as a symbol of masculinity in some cultures.
Moustaches can be lost for different reasons. Depending on the negativities such as accidents, different diseases and burns, moustaches may be lost. Sometimes moustaches may not come out at all or may come out weaker than desired. In such cases, grafts removed from the donor area are transplanted to the moustache area. Thus, patients have permanent moustaches. The procedure performed here is called moustache transplantation.
This is a cosmetic procedure. It closely concerns the general appearance of people. Therefore, it is important to do it correctly. It would be much more accurate to prefer clinics that have made a name in this field rather than unknown and unrecognized ones. At this point, clinic selection is of great importance.
How to Perform Moustache Transplantation?
Moustache transplantation is a very delicate procedure. Therefore, it can only be performed by physicians who are experts in this field. It is unlikely that moustache transplantation by non-specialists will be successful. The steps followed in the moustache transplantation procedure are as follows:
- Firstly, it is checked whether the person is suitable for moustache transplantation. For this purpose, the general condition of the person and whether there are enough grafts in the donor area are examined. If the person is accepted as a suitable candidate for moustache transplantation, further steps are taken. To find out if you are a suitable candidate for moustache transplantation, you should consult a specialist.
- The nape area is often used as the donor area. However, if there are not enough grafts here, the hair on the arm, leg and chest area can be removed. This is something that needs planning. However, since the area to be transplanted in a moustache procedure is not as dense as it is in the hair transplantation, the nape area will be sufficient.
- Advanced techniques such as FUE and DHI are used in moustache transplantation. In these techniques, grafts are removed one by one and then transplanted to the moustache area. While carrying out the procedure, the grafts are transplanted according to an angle, not random. So the result is a natural moustache look.
After This Process
The process after the moustache transplantation is also important. A few mistakes at this stage can cause the procedure to fail completely. Especially in the early stages, exercise should be avoided. Cigarettes and alcohol should not be consumed. Apart from these, you should also follow other instructions given by your doctor. When you pay attention to all these, it can be said that the result will generally meet your expectations.
How Much Is Moustache Transplantation?
This is a special procedure. Therefore, the cost of the procedure is among the issues people are curious about. First of all, it would not be right to mention a precise figure for the price of this procedure. Because there are different factors that affect the price. Factors such as the number of grafts to be transplanted, the clinic where the procedure is performed, the city/district where the clinic is located, and the specialist doctor who perform the procedure cause the cost to vary. However, in general, it can be said that the price of this procedure in our clinic is in the range of 500€ – 900€. In European countries such as the UK, this figure can go up to 3000€ – 4000€.
What is the Ideal Number of Grafts for Moustache Transplantation?
This is not a standard procedure. This procedure may differ from person to person. Therefore, it should be remembered that the ideal number of grafts will vary for each individual. However, it can be said that an average of 300 – 800 grafts will be sufficient for moustache transplantation in normal standards.
