A beautiful appearance is something that everyone cares and desires. Medical developments that increase with each passing day have also occurred in the field of facial plasty. Nowadays, eyebrow transplant is a procedure that can be performed as successfully as hair transplant. Eyebrow transplant is performed in cases where eyebrow does not grow due to accidents, burn treatments, eyebrow loss caused by diseases, or congenital inability to grow eyebrows. The technique used in the eyebrow transplant is the FUE technique. Since the use of the FUE technique is extremely simple, it can be used in patients at any age, as long as they are not in a condition that poses an obstacle to the procedure. Before eyebrow transplant, local anesthesia is given to the patient to numb the eyebrow area. Eyebrow transplant is a procedure that involves the processes of harvesting hair follicles from the areas where hair loss is not experienced, and then placing them into channels opened in the transplant area. In this procedure, hair follicles are harvested from the nape of the neck, without making any linear incisions. Before performing the eyebrow transplant, an eyebrow model suitable for the face and the desires of the patient is determined. The determined eyebrow model is drawn in the eyebrow area, so that the patient can see the appearance to be achieved after the operation, and be sure that he/she wants it.
On whom is the eyebrow transplant procedure performed?
The eyebrow transplant procedure is performed on patients, who have not eyebrows due congenital or acquired factors, patients who have sparse eyebrows, or patients who are dissatisfied with their eyebrows. There is no age restriction for the eyebrow transplant procedure.
What are the points to take into consideration in the eyebrow transplant procedure?
The first point to take into consideration in the eyebrow transplant procedure is the determination of the transplant direction because this is very important for ensuring the natural results. The other important thing is the determination of the right eyebrow model that is suitable for your face. With the help of our specialist plastic surgeons, the eyebrow model suitable for your face is determined in line with your demands. This is an important process because the transplanted eyebrow is permanent, and the follicles maintain their vitality in the transplant area for a lifetime.
How is the eyebrow transplant with the FUE method performed?
Eyebrow transplant is a procedure required to be performed under local anesthesia, when the appropriate conditions are present. Before the eyebrow transplant procedure, local anesthesia is used to numb the donor area (where the follicles will be harvested) and the transplant area (where the follicles will be transplanted). The patient remains awake and feels no pain during eyebrow transplant. The transplant procedure takes 1 to 2 hours. Since the eyebrow transplant procedure does not involve any incision, the patient can get back to his/her daily life without scar and the risk of infection.
How many follicles can be transplanted in the eyebrow transplant procedure?
On average, 500 to 700 follicles can be transplanted in the eyebrow transplant procedure. This number varies depending on the transplant area. In addition, a second application may be needed after the eyebrow transplant procedure, in order to make the area denser.
What will I experience after eyebrow transplant? Are the transplanted eyebrows permanent?
Eyebrows transplanted in the eye transplant procedure are definitely permanent. There will be no restrictions on bathing after eyebrow transplant. Redness and incrustation will be observed for several days after the procedure. Within the first week after transplant, healing will be observed in the transplant area. It takes 6 to 8 months to clearly see the results of eyebrow transplant.
