Moustache transplantation is generally performed alongside with beard transplantation. It is mostly required for the two sides of the lips where moustache and beard merge.

Moustache transplantation has similar characteristics to hair and of course to beard transplantation. Margins must be planned carefully so that the transplant does not extend too high or too wide.

It does not take as long time as hair transplantation because the number of roots transplanted is low.

Both FUE or FUT methods may be used in moustache transplantation. The roots are collected from the classic donor site in the back of the head and transplanted into the recipient site after the canals are drilled. In contrast to classic hair transplantation, only the donor site (the strip at the back of the head) is shaved. The procedure is called FUT if the roots are taken together with the strip of skin and FUE when the roots are collected one by one. FUE, therefore, allows to select the most suitable roots for the moustache site to get an unnoticeable transplantation.

The low number of roots transplanted does not reduce the cost substantially because the same disposable sterile material as in other transplantatons are opened and used for this intervention. Therefore, the cost cannot drop below a certain limit no matter 5,000 or 300 roots are transplanted.

After transplantation, the patient is given an intervention note, a medical report, a brochure describing points that should be payed regard to, and a package that contain recommended medications, serums and shampoos. How to use these products is instructed in detail to the patient and is also included in the brochure.

The patient comes back for control after 2 days and the first washing is done. The patient is instructed how to wash this site during subsequent days at home. The transplant site should be washed once daily for 4–5 days.

The patients are kindly asked to send the photos of the transplant site at 6th and 12th months for further follow-up.
