What is Eyebrow Transplantation and How is it Done?

Eyebrow transplantation is the process of transplanting hair follicles taken from the donor area to the area that lacks eyebrows due to genetic traits or hair loss. Typically, eyebrow loss can occur from prolonged eyebrow plucking from the same area, hair loss, chemotherapy, or other reasons. This planting method is performed without any harm to the person's health, and there are several important points to consider during the procedure.

Things to Know and Pay Attention to in Eyebrow Transplant Operations
  • The transplantation of eyebrows should be based on the individual's facial features and shape while also adhering to the golden ratio.
  • To achieve the best results, single, fine-wire hair follicles should be used for transplantation from the donor area. Using grouped roots will lead to undesirable results and diminish the facial aesthetics.
  • If there are not enough single and fine-wire hair follicles available, double and triple grouped roots should be made into single ones before transplantation.
  • To achieve a natural and realistic appearance, the FUE procedure should be used to extract single hair follicles. The DHI or Sapphire technique should be used for transplantation to ensure a natural, realistic, and aesthetic appearance.
  • This procedure is typically done for eyebrows that have not regrown within one to two years after the initial loss.

After the eyebrow transplant operation, the specialist will dress the person and provide an explanation of how to care for the area, both verbally and practically. The eyebrows will start to grow in the first three months, but the full result may take between eight and twelve months to achieve. To ensure the best outcome from the eyebrow transplant operation, the following tips should be followed:

  • Drink a minimum of three to four liters of water daily.
  • Try to maintain a straight head position, avoiding leaning or looking upside down.
  • Use medication as prescribed by the specialist.
  • Avoid rubbing or bumping the area while changing clothes
  • Apply cold compresses under the eyes after the operation.
