Mustache transplantation is not as common as eyebrow transplantation. Harris , in his recent survey, reported that mustache transplants accounted for only 1% to 1.5% of all hair restoration procedures in 2006. Okuda, from Japan, may be the first physician reporting mustache transplant back in 1939 [2, 6]. The majority of Orientals do not have as much mustache as do their Caucasian and Indian counterparts. Still, there is a steady demand for this facial hair transplant, including beard and goatee.
