Hair Transplant Surgeons in Turkey Give a New Mustache

When celebrities going for hair transplant are making news, men flocking to Turkey to get new moustaches are making for even more interesting news.

Plastic surgeons in Turkey reveal that men from Middle Eastern countries and from far away China and Australia are coming to Turkey to get a moustache which is believed to mark manhood.

Istanbul a hot tourist destination is fast becoming a venue for such specialized hair transplants. Many travel companies are linking tourism with mustache transplant surgery. Turkey always ranks high as a medical tourism destination and mustache transplant gives it a prominent place now.

Transplant packages in Turkey include a facial hair transplant along with a short vacation in Istanbul or in a beachside retreat on the Mediterranean coast. More number of clinics have started offering similar services.

The Wall Street Journal published a report by the Turkey Health Ministry which gave the figures for foreign patients who travel to Turkey for medical purposes as 100,000. Although facial hair transplants don’t figure separately in the report the number of men coming for mustache transplant surgeries has increased remarkably, say surgeons and tourism agencies.

In the fashion world new trends keep cropping up now and again. At present the presence of a mustache is IN for men. Considered as a mark of masculinity men are suddenly realizing that they want one and are turning to professional help to get one in case of poor growth under the nose.

Selahattin Tulunay a plastic surgeon based in Turkey performs up to 60 facial hair transplants in a month. He started doing this two years back. He offers his services mostly to patients traveling from the Middle East.

Similarly Canan Melike Koksuz another cosmetic surgeon here has performed hair follicle transplants in the mustache region for celebrities and chief executives. She remarked that facial hair was considered political before but now mustaches and beards have become fashion statements.

The facial hair transplant performed under local anesthetic involves the removal of hair follicles from richer or hairy areas like the scalp and transplanting it on the face. The procedure takes five hours to complete and costs up to $ 5,000. Surgeons can provide full-bodied mustaches or stubble beards according to the requirement of the patient.

But once the hair follicles are transplanted the patient will be able to grow a full beard also and style it as he wishes.
