One of the most characteristic parts of our face are eyebrows. We refer to the process of transplanting the hair follicles from the donor area to the area that has been left without eyebrows.
After advancing technology discoveries, medical advances and research, many appearance problems have been solved, as well as eyebrow transplantation can now be applied successfully as in hair transplantation.
Briefly for the eyebrow transplant operation; “It is the process of placing the grafts in the balded regions of the eyebrow where the channels have been opened. Again the grafts are collected from the nape of the head (donor region).
Eyebrow transplantation can be applied to anyone with sufficient hair in the donor region.
People may want very different eyebrow models. The eyebrow shape that the person wants should be in accordance with the brow shape he/she had before. The thinness or thickness of the hair should be evaluated to match the existing structure.
The pain felt while getting the tattoo done to the eyebrow causes even more pain than eyebrow implanting.
Whether there will be whitening in the eyebrows during the transplant is one of the Frequently Asked Questions.
We would like to point out that there can be no bleaching caused by eyebrow implanting. However, with advancing age, both hair and hair in different parts of the body begins to whiten. For this reason, the implanted eyebrows can become white as the patient ages.
There is no age limit for eyebrow transplantation.
Imlanted eyebrows are definitely donnot fall out again. Therefore, there is no need for a second session. The second session can be done to patients who want thicker hair structure and need tightening.
Unfortunately, there is no alternative to eyebrow transplants. Although cosmetic and drug treatments are applied to dilute or regrow eyebrow hairs, it is almost impossible to regrow eyebrows. For this reason, there is no other alternative than eyebrow transplantation.
Eyebrow transplantation is permanent and will be used for life.
Some reasons for eyebrow hair loss;

There can be a maximum two-year waiting period for eyebrow hair loss. Eyebrow transplants can be done for regions that are understood to not regrow which will be obvious within the first year.
Eyebrow transplantation operation with FUE technique
Among the transplants of the hair follicles taken from the nape of the head, the most sensitive application that requires special attention is definitely eyebrow transplantation operation. Natural and realistic appearance requires very serious experience. The angle and direction of the implanted hair follicles are the main determining factor and it should be natural and the brow line should be formed with precision. Manual FUE technique is used in the eyebrow transplantation operations that we apply in our clinic.
Stages Of Eyebrow Transplantation Operation:
Consultation: Eyebrow transplantation decision is made, the area to be implanted and the design is determined, the examination process done by the doctor.
Operation: Eyebrow transplant operations are performed with FUE technique and performed by applying a very simple local anesthesia.
The hair follicles taken should consist of fine hairs located at the bottom of the nape of the head. These hair roots are collected using the thinnest punches possible with the help of micromotor. Since single hair roots are used efficiently in eyebrow implanting, multiple grafts will disrupt naturalness. Eyebrow transplantation operation takes about 2-3 hours.
Dressings and PRP: after the end of eyebrow transplant operation, PRP and dressing are applied 24 hours later. Implanted eyebrows begin to become prominent in the first three months. From the eighth month on, the actual results will become evident.
How is eyebrow transplantation applied?
No pain or discomfort is felt as local anesthesia is applied in eyebrow transplantation operation. FUE technique is commonly used in eyebrow implantation as well as in hair transplantation. This technique is simple and can be applied to any age group patient.
Before the start of eyebrow transplantation, the doctor's examination will determine the most appropriate eyebrow shape to be taken into consideration in the patient's request. The determined eyebrow model is drawn with a pencil and the situation that will occur after the operation is tried to be shown. In this way, the patient is assured of his preferred model.
The number of grafts is determined and planned to have sufficient density for eyebrow transplant, the necessary hair roots are collected from the back of the head (donor region). Although these hair roots are usually taken by micromotor, they are rarely collected one by one with the help of a manual punch.
Before starting the implanting, local anesthesia is applied to the area of the brow that will be first performed in the transplant. The most important stage of eyebrow transplantation, which gives a natural and beautiful image of the channel begin to open. The direction of the channels to be opened is precisely determined. Eyebrow transplantation compared to hair transplantation, much more precise and rigorous work needs to be done. A small mistake in eyebrow implanting may be the cause of a bad appearance.
Hair roots collected from the nape of the head, which is the donor region, are placed in the channels that will be opened one by one, taking into account the directions. Rest assured, you will not feel pain during this procedure. Eyebrow transplantation process will take up to 2-4 hours. Asking patient to rest when the transplant ends he's sent home. For the operation to be successful and for the implanted roots to hold, the head area must be well protected against external influences, especially impact strikes.
What happens after eyebrow transplantation?
After eyebrow transplantation, the main issue to be considered is definitely hygiene rules. Since the operation is performed in a sterile environment, the transplant area must be protected very well.
We recommend that the eyebrows are not to be dyed until they reach a clear conclusion after they have been implanted. There will be no harm in dyeing the maturing hair follicles. In a few days after the operation, cream, lotion, pomade and similar cosmetic materials should not be used.
After 2 weeks of eyebrow implanting, the resulting scabbing begins to end. The hair that is found in the first roots that are implanted will fall out. Don't be uncomfortable with this, because the same thing happens in hair transplantation. The process of shedding is an extremely natural, known and expected process.
It may take up to 3 months for the roots to start to grow. It may take 6 months for eyebrows to emerge from all the roots implanted.

Status after eyebrow transplantation
After the hair follicles have started to grow, they should be shaved periodically. It is important to remember that this is the first time that a hair transplant procedure is performed. The roots that will grow in the first months do not stay as short as eyebrows and continue to grow like hair. Don't worry in this case and shorten it properly. Shaving process is continued for about a year.
6 months after the transplant is done, the hair output is largely completed. It can be easily shaped like natural eyebrows.
At the end of a year, the roots that are implanted complete the development of the brow and move to a tendency to grow slowly like a normal brow. After this feature, there is no need to shave.
