The mustache is the most important factor in the formation of male identity and it can cause serious social problem for a person if it is missing.  Scarce mustache, no hair growth in a certain area of the mustache, burns, these problems may create an aesthetic problem for the person. In the case of men not having hair on the upper lip or hair loss, the precise treatment is mustache transplantation.
     A person may regret having a mustache transplantation if it has been badly performed. For this reason, the person who will be operated must consult with the doctor and ask him questions and get satisfactory answers. This shows the importance of consultancy.
     The hairs to be transplanted are taken from the nape region. For this, individual hair roots are taken with 0.6 mm punches using fue method from the upper nape region. 
     If 2-3 grafts are transplanted, it creates an ugly mustache appearance on the skin after shaving. Therefore the transplantation density must be in a way that allows the follicles to be nourished.
     Local anesthesia is applied to the area before the operation.  The duration of the operation performed by applying the FUE technique varies according to the volume of the area to be transplanted. After the local anesthesia performed in the area where the mustache or beard is to be planted, the channels  where the follicles will be placed by the expert are carefully opened with the lateral slit  technique according to the direction of natural beard and mustache. If the transplantation is performed like this, no dents appears in the skin even when shaved with a razor.
     After the operation, especially the first 3 days the mustache area must be protected.Any movement that may cause irritation and damage should be avoided. It is natural to observe redness for the first 3-4 days following the operation and this can continue until the end of first month.The redness will become scabs and after a week later, it will continue healing. Do not neglect to apply creams to prevent scabbing after the mustache transplantation. You can start shaving after 30 days. After 2 months, the hair starts to grow in the area where the transplantation has been performed and all the mustache grow back within one year.
Mustache transplantation is not like hair transplantation. It is absolutely necessary to have an experienced team in this regard. 


Beard transplantation:  beard transplantation is performed in areas where the beard does not grow, the beard area is burned or injured, or there is no beard.
  First, the area where beard transplantation is to be done is determined. A drawing that will not disturb the aesthetics and naturalness of the face of the person is prepared. The number of follicles to be taken is determined and the transplantation is planned for areas that have been completely shed due to wound and burns. The follicles can be taken from the hairs on the cheekbones and from the nape region and be transplanted to the beard area.
    The beard is not like the hair, its density can vary from person to person. If there is a regional beard loss, the density of the beard is adjusted according to the follicles surrounding the area. Between 1500-3000 follicles can be transplanted.  Transplanting around 3000 follicles gives satisfactory results. No problem occurs on the following day of the operation, but, there might be redness on the operated area  after a week. Since the follicles are taken with tools that have a tip of 0.6-0.7 mm, no marks are left. It does not matter because it is a featureless hair if taken from the body. If taken from the nape region, there may appear a dilution depending on the number of follicles removed. Operation is a process that requires attention and delicacy. The procedure will take about 4-5 hours, depending on the plastic surgeon and the team. Before the procedure, local anesthesia is applied and then the follicles are taken from the area. The operation is painless and comfortable for the patient. The beard area is washed after 48 hours.  You can shave after 30 days.
     The results are natural. The marks after the operations can be visible for 10 days. However, no one can tell you have had an operation once the marks are gone. However, once the transplantation is complete, you must follow the care principles. During the recovery period, you will definitely need to use the medications and cures recommended by your doctor. Fifteen days after the process, the beard sheds. The beard shed begins to grow back in the 2nd month and it takes a year for the beard to get to its final state.
