If I get hair transplanted into my mustache area, will it grow differently than the surrounding hairs?
Dr. Friedman’s Answer:
Since we are transplanting hair from another part of the body to the mustache, it definitely is going to grow differently than your native beard hair.
Typically, when we transplant hairs into the mustache, we take donor hair from the back of the scalp. That hair is often much finer in caliber and much faster growing than beard hair, which tends to be coarse.
The nice thing about transplanting into the beard is that when the hair is grown to a certain length, you really can’t tell that it’s different from the surrounding hair. Although the transplanted hair has a different texture and grows at a different rate, it really does blend remarkably well.
