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,
