How does the operation process?
In order to prevent pain, doctors apply local anaesthesia only to the upper lip region before the operation. The donor site is usually the neck region. However, arm and leg hairs are also suitable for the transplant. Therefore donor site may vary.
Doctors collect the hair follicles one by one with the help of the FUE method and micromotor. They collect approximately between 300 and 500 hair follicles depending on the sparseness of moustache area. Lastly, they place the follicles in the channels that they opened earlier. The donor area remains bandaged for 3 days while the sowing area is left open. During this period, the cultivated area is not washed for 3 days.
The recovery period after operation is 10 days most of the time.
During this time, the hair roots first crust. These crusts begin to shed slowly with the first wash on the 3rd day, and the hair follicles heal.
A second operation can be necessary after about 8 to 9 months. You can shorten moustache hairs with scissors after approximately 15 days. Shedding may begin after 2-3 weeks after the operation. After the shock hair loss, which is not the case for everyone, moustache hair grows again in the middle of the fourth month and starts to grow at the normal hair growth rate after the sixth month of the operation. The roots begin to hold in place and continue to grow at a normal pace.
Clinics may suggest the methods of nourishing and strengthening the hair follicles such as PRP, mesotherapy, hyperbaric oxygen treatment or hair vaccine as moustache regeneration methods in order to make the moustache grow rapidly after the moustache transplantation.

Moustache transplant results
Doctors and the patient should be extremely careful in moustache transplantation. One of the biggest advantages is that the moustache area is rapidly recovering, except that it is a much more risky area compared to other cultivation crops.

Doctors should facilitate the grooving process with the most accurate medical devices of the right angle, and to the ideal depth, otherwise, anomalies may occur in the hair follicles in the face area.
The process after moustache transplant is a wide process that starts with the end of the operation and continues with the growth of the hair follicles, starting on the day of operation and covering approximately 8-10 months. The patient can leave the hospital on his own, as operation requires only local anaesthesia.
A slight swelling on the lips is normal.
In areas where operation occurs, there can be mild bleeding. Therefore, the moustache region may have a red dot image. However, this situation rapidly improves and disappears in a short time. You may have some problems while eating due to the swelling above the lips. It is a manageable and normal situation. Taking your medication according to the instructions, will prevent more serious problems.
Although the operation does not cause any speech difficulties, some people may have speech disorders because the swelling in the upper lip is very high in the first days. We recommend you to spend this process by resting and not talking unnecessarily. In this way, you can prevent the displacement of hair roots.
On the third day, you can mildly wash the operation area. Crusting and itching are possible. You shouldn’t scratch and itch the moustache area. This process is approximately 3 days. After 3 days, the expected regeneration begins to complete.
Process after the surgery
A week after surgery, small wounds begin to disappear. Redness in the moustache area is noticeably past, but crusting continues. Do not expect the crusts to come off completely during the first wash, so do not rub your hair follicles.
Unnecessary pressure and harsh movements can cause the hair follicles to dislodge. The risk of complications was reduced as the antibiotic treatment takes place; the risk of complications reduce greatly. The person can easily return to daily life. Washing should continue frequently. Thus, unwanted images on the hair follicles will return to normal faster.
1 month after moustache transplantation
Shock hair loss may continue until the end of the first month. Shock loss can be different in every person. Since the dynamic structure of the body varies from body to body, it can vary from person to person in the post-operative process.
Shedding of hair follicles is an indication of the emergence of new, fresh and healthy hair follicles. Aftershock loss, the growth of the new hairs follows a similar process with the growth of the hair follicles on average.
3 months after moustache transplantation, the process in which moustache starts to grow and healing takes place. However, some hair roots have not yet begun. Therefore, the appearance of the moustache can be sparse. The new hair follicles have not been fully grown and powerfully shaped. It is quite normal for whiskers to have unnecessary distortions, slight curl, and stubborn hair fibres.
The elongation of the hair follicles after shock loss is on average a period similar to that of the hair follicles. Elongation is about 1-2 cm per month. Frequent washing is important, which will help normalize unwanted images on the hair follicles.
