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 moustache 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. Proper selection of patients is explained on personal consultation.
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 request include the following:
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.
Before undergoing mustache transplantation ,as in scalp procedure understanding the procedure and postoperative care is important to have the optimum result.
