Turkey Offers Moustache Transplant Surgery Vacation Packages
Cosmetic surgeons in Turkey have been performing hair transplants on balding men for years; however, it seems there's now growing demand from men with bald upper lips.
Men from Asia, Europe and the Middle East have been flocking to the country in order to give their mediocre moustaches a helping hand and tourism agencies have taken notice. Many local companies have begun offering "transplant packages" in which tourists can get their surgery done before chilling out at a Mediterranean Resort or hitting the capital's shopping malls.
Interestingly, there's little interest from Turks in getting the procedure done. According to the Wall Street Journal, the number of Turkish men sporting moustaches has fallen radically in the past two decades – not that they have any trouble growing facial fuzz. "Personally, I'd be suspicious of a Turk who couldn't grow a mustache," a salesman from Istanbul told the newspaper. "But if foreigners need to come anywhere for the operation, it should be here. The Turkish mustache is still the envy of the world."
