Mustache Transplantation

What is Moustache Transplantation?

Mustache transplantation is the process of creating a mustache for people who have sparse or no moustache by using hair transplantation methods. This procedure is generally preferred due to aesthetic concerns, in cases of mustache sparseness or irregular mustache structure.


Mustache transplantation is generally performed using the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique. In this method, individual hair follicles (roots) are taken from donor areas such as the nape of the neck or behind the ear and transplanted to the mustache area.

How is Mustache Transplantation Done?

Mustache transplantation is performed using the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique. The basic steps of this method are:

1. Inspection and Planning:

  • The doctor evaluates the patient’s mustache area and general health condition.

  • It determines whether it is suitable for mustache transplantation.

  • It determines the number of grafts to be transplanted and the donor area.

  • He plans the mustache design according to the patient’s wishes.

2. Anesthesia:

  • The mustache area and the donor area are anesthetized with local anesthesia.

3. Graft Retrieval:

  • Using the FUE technique, follicular units (hair follicles) are taken one by one from donor areas such as the nape of the neck or behind the ear.

4. Graft Preparation:

  • The collected follicular units are prepared for transplantation.

5. Opening Channels:

  • Channels are opened in the mustache area, suitable for the size and angle of the grafts to be transplanted.

6. Transplantation of Grafts:

  • The prepared follicular units are placed in the channels using tweezers or a Choi pen.

7. Dressing:

  • Dressing is applied to the transplanted area.




Mustache transplantation usually takes 2-3 hours. The recovery process after the procedure takes approximately 10 days. During this process, the transplanted hairs fall out, but new hairs begin to grow after 3-4 months and the mustache takes its final shape within 1 year.


The success of mustache transplantation depends on the experience of the doctor, the technique used and the general health condition of the patient.

Here's Frequently Asked Questions About Mustache Transplantation

What is mustache transplantation?

Mustache transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that involves transplanting hair follicles from a donor area, typically the back of the scalp, to the mustache area. This procedure helps men achieve fuller, thicker, and more evenly distributed facial hair in the mustache region.

What are the advantages of mustache transplantation?

Advantages include achieving a natural and permanent mustache, enhancing facial symmetry, improving self-confidence, minimal scarring, and the ability to shape and style the mustache as desired.

The duration of the procedure depends on the number of grafts being transplanted. Typically, it can take between 2 to 5 hours. Your surgeon will provide a more accurate timeframe during your consultation.

How long do the results of mustache transplantation last?

The results of mustache transplantation are generally permanent. The transplanted hair follicles are resistant to hair loss and will continue to grow naturally, allowing for lifetime growth.

What should I do after the treatment?

After the treatment, follow your surgeon’s post-care instructions, which may include avoiding strenuous activities, not touching or shaving the grafts, washing your face gently, and attending follow-up appointments to monitor your progress.
