Here is a patient of mine who wanted a Tom Selleck circa Magnum PI mustache. His mustache was a little thin genetically.
I harvested just over 700 grafts via FUE using a 0.75mm extraction tip from the neck beard. That way I would be transferring hair from one area to another that has the same quality to it.
The “after” photos show the patient one week after the procedure and as you can see the scarring from the extractions in the donor area is almost invisible and the mustache appears significantly wider and denser than it was pre procedure. The patient will shed most of the transplanted mustache hairs and they will regrow starting at 3-4 months but this photo is a sneak peak into the final result that we should see in 9-12 months.
The patient is thrilled and excited to see his final results then.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, MD
this is a patient of Dr. Marc Dauer who had grafts extracted from the neck via FUE and transplanted into the mustache beard
this is the donor region for grafts harvested via FUE for transplantation into the mustache
Here is a patient who came to me after having undergone several previous procedures and scalp reductions with other hair transplant physicians.
He wanted to add hair to his mid scalp and crown (where there was virtually no hair and a scalp reduction scar) and to attempt to conceal a very wide donor scar from his previous strip hair transplant procedures.
I extracted just over 900 grafts from the neck beard and placed them into the scalp and scar. The results are shown after 9 months and they are already impressive.
The patient should see some increased density over the next 3-6 months as the hairs thicken in diameter.
Although the beard hair is a different consistency than scalp hair it works well in cases like this where there is no more scalp hair to donate and when “filler” hair is needed for increased cosmetic density.
The patient is looking forward to another procedure to add more density in the scalp from the beard hair.
A patient with a relatively thick beard can have up to 2000 grafts to donate from the area below the jaw line.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.

Here is a patient of mine who wanted empty patches in his beard and mustache filled in. I used a 0.8mm FUE punch to extract hair follicles from the neck and transplanted these follicles into the beard and mustache. The results are shown after 6 months and the patient is thrilled.
