Eyebrow Transplant: Restoring Natural-Looking Brows


Eyebrow transplant is a surgical procedure performed to get more natural and thicker eyebrows.

Eyebrows are one of the most important elements that highlight the beauty of the face. The eyebrows, which are sufficient in terms of shape and thickness and adapt to the face of the person, provide a more lively and youthful expression.

Eyebrow transplantation, which is frequently preferred by people who have lost their eyebrows in recent years and those who want to thicken their thin ones, is a comfortable and easy procedure.


Eyebrow Transplant: Candidates


Candidates for an eyebrow transplant usually have sparse or missing eyebrows due to various reasons, such as over-tweezing, trauma, burns, or medical conditions like alopecia.

The patients should be in good overall health to undergo the transplant procedure. It is essential to disclose any existing medical conditions and medications (if any) during the consultation.

Candidates should also have stable hair loss patterns. If the underlying cause of hair loss is still active or unresolved, it may affect the long-term success of the transplant.

Besides that, the patients must have realistic expectations about the results of the eyebrow transplant. The aim is to restore natural-looking brows that complement the individual's facial features and aesthetic goals.


Preparation for Eyebrow Transplant


The person who wants to have an eyebrow transplant first makes a consultation with the specialist. During this examination, the patient explains the appearance they want to get after the practice and the expert determines the needs of the person.

With a sample drawing, the patient is informed in detail. About one week before the hair transplant procedure, it is desirable to quit blood thinners, and 48 hours before habits such as alcohol and cigarettes.


How is Eyebrow Transplant Performed?


An eyebrow transplant involves the surgical transfer of hair follicles from a donor area to the related region.

Generally, the donor area for this practice is the back of the scalp, where the hair matches the texture and growth pattern of eyebrow hair. This site is carefully selected to ensure a close match with the patient's original follicles.

The hair restoration specialist uses a microsurgical technique, such as follicular unit extraction (FUE), to harvest individual hair follicles from the donor area. This process involves making tiny incisions and extracting the roots one by one.

The harvested hair follicles are meticulously placed into the recipient sites. The specialist takes care to ensure proper alignment, orientation, and angulation of the transplanted hair for a natural appearance.

The duration of eyebrow transplantation varies from case to case, depending on the number of follicles transplanted. In practices that last approximately 2 hours, an average of 150 to 250 grafts can be performed in a single session. This number varies according to the needs of the person.


Eyebrow Transplant: Healing Process


The healing process after an eyebrow transplant is a crucial phase in achieving the desired results. There may be some side effects seen in this process, but if the expert instructions are followed, it is possible to complete this period quickly and comfortably.

The transplanted area may appear red, swollen, or slightly bruised immediately after the procedure. These effects are temporary and subside within a few days.

In the first week, scabbing and crusting may occur around the transplanted hair follicles. It is important to resist the urge to pick or scratch these scabs, as it can interfere with the healing process and result in poor graft survival.

Just like any hair transplantation process, within two to three weeks after the surgery, the transplanted eyebrows may fall out. This shedding is a normal part of the practice and should not cause concern. New hair growth will begin within a few months.

Over the following months, the new roots will gradually grow and mature. It may take approximately 10 months for the full results to become visible. The hair will continue to grow naturally, requiring regular trimming and grooming. Shaping and conditioning are a must to keep them looking their best.
