Not having a mustache in the Middle East can be a problem: facial hair signifies wisdom and virility among men. It's so much so, that more and more men are undergoing mustache surgery. One Turkish plastic surgeon reports that he's doing as many as 60 procedures per month.

The trend is even reaching places like Paris, where people mostly from Mideast countries go and pay about $7000 for the implant. They take hair from dense growth areas and put them in the upper lip.
