Many report that they are seeing an increasing number of patients who are seeking beard and moustache transplantation for cosmetic rather than reconstructive reasons. In my practice mustache or beard transplantation is not as common as eyebrow transplantation and the patients seeking this facial hair transplant especially moustache procedure are young patients who want to enhance their manly look with different facial hair styles
The majority of Orientals do not have so much mustache as do their Caucasian and Indian counterparts but there is already a demand for this facial hair transplant including beard and goatee.
Reasons for such requests include these:
1 To fill in areas without any beard and mustache to create a new look
2 To increase density in area with existing beard or mustache
3 To camouflage scarring alopecia from accidental or iatrogenic trauma such as repair of cleft lip or tumor excision of the lip.
