Eyebrow Transplantation

Eyebrows are extremely important for having an aesthetic appearance and determining the characteristics of the face. In order to have an aesthetic and impressive appearance, the eyebrows should display a harmonious appearance with the other elements of the face.

Eyebrow transplantation is a treatment method that is frequently applied especially to women. Since women have their eyebrows removed constantly and regularly, it may be possible to encounter a situation called resentment in the eyebrows, and the eyebrows to lose their volume and thickness over time. Trauma, accident, burn, stress, skin problems that affect the hair follicle, ringworm, chemotherapy or permanent make-up applications are also among the causes of eyebrow loss. With the eyebrow transplant procedure, it is possible for the eyebrows to regain their former volume and thickness.

What is Eyebrow Transplantation?

It is the process of applying hair transplantation to the area where eyebrows are left without eyebrows for any reason or where eyebrows are sparse. A very natural appearance can be obtained after the procedure, since the eyebrow transplantation is performed within the eyebrow line and can be cut and shaped. However, this must be done meticulously. It should be kept in mind that the sowing should be done upwards in the inner part of the eyebrow, parallel in the middle and slightly oriented to the right and left in the outer part, and that the eyebrows come out at an angle of about 10-15 degrees from the skin. If these points are not followed, the eyebrows may rise in the wrong directions and a natural look cannot be achieved.

How Is Eyebrow Transplantation Performed?

In the eyebrow transplant procedure performed under local anesthesia, the donor area is shaved and sterilized so that the root area is 1 mm. Since it has features suitable for the eyebrow structure, the area with small hairs in the lowest part of the nape area is used as the donor area. Hair follicles in the region are collected with the help of micro motor using the thinnest-small punches. It is important to use single hair follicles, as the use of multiple grafts may disrupt the natural appearance. Then, eyebrow transplantation is performed according to the selected technique in the designed eyebrow area. While planting, care should be taken to ensure that it is at the appropriate angle and direction.

Healing Process After Eyebrow Transplantation

It is normal to see slight redness and crusting in the area after eyebrow transplantation. However, these shells should not be severed and should be expected to fall off on their own.

On the first day, water should not come into contact with the application area and protection should be provided against impact. The reason for this is that the eyebrows are very sensitive and prone to shedding, especially on the first day.

After the transplantation process, the eyebrows may have a weak structure. However, over time, it gains a thicker, voluminous and natural appearance. After sowing, a certain period of time is required for the eyebrow to take its full shape. When the eyebrows enter the natural growth process, natural and dense eyebrows will be achieved.

About 15 days after the eyebrow transplant operation, eyebrows begin to fall out and new eyebrows begin to appear after about 3 months. The targeted appearance is achieved in about 8 months. Since the roots on the nape are used as the donor area, initially the eyebrows grow as quickly as the hair. In this process, the ends should be trimmed and trimmed every 15 days. At the end of 1 year, the roots begin to grow more slowly by adapting to the characteristics of the application area.
