The Follicle As Statement Of Personal Power -lauraw December 2, 2012Posted by anycomments in Ballistics, Crime, Ducks, Gardening.
In the Middle East, the moustache makes the man.
You are not taken seriously there, without a serious moustache. A full, lush crumb-catcher makes you look older and wiser. Those who cannot grow a proper soup-strainer are turning in greater numbers to artificial enhancement.
Tulunay says he now performs 50 to 60 mustache implants per month on patients who largely hail from the Middle East and travel to his country as “medical tourists.”
Several other surgeons told CNN they have seen an increasing number of patients seeking the procedure, with most patients ranging in age from 30 to 50.
The procedure is known as follicular unit extraction and involves removing follicles from areas of the body with dense hair growth and implanting them in the desired mustache area.
Status is important, and ‘looking the part’ is especially so in other parts of the world. Any side-issues that affect others’ perception of our status become areas of vital self-improvement.
Asked my husband to grow a moustache a decade ago and I think it looked good on him back then. He grows a nice full ‘stache.
Shaving it off did not impair his social status, as far as I know. Well, no. I mean, I don’t really know.
Shit, he could have a moustache again right now. I couldn’t tell you with any certainty.
Honestly I don’t think I’ve actually looked straight at him in over a year.
I still like him and intend to keep him if I can.
