This treatment method is mostly preferred by women and aims to achieve the desired eyebrow volume and thickness. Eyebrow transplantation can successfully correct thinning eyebrows that have been losing volume.
Eyebrow transplantation is based on FUE techniques. The hair follicles that are extracted from the nape of the neck are transferred to the anesthetized region in an operation that takes three to four hours.
The main difference of this procedure from regular hair transplant is that the scalp hair has an angle of 45 degrees, whereas the eyebrows come out at a 10 to 15-degree angle. The direction of the incisions is crucial in eyebrow transplants, which need to follow the naturally arching shape of the eyebrow. Imperfect incisions can lead to eyebrows that grow out in an awkward direction. This operation must be performed by a physician.
Frequently Asked Questions
- What are the points to be considered after the treatment?
There can be some degree of scabbing in the first week after the operation. These will quickly go away and will not prevent you from returning to your daily life. One aspect that requires specific attention is not to swim in a pool, to avoid excessive sun exposure or tanning beds, and excessive physical exertions for 2 weeks after the operation.
- Is it possible to shape eyebrows with hair transplantation?
It is possible to change the shape of the eyebrows with hair transplant.
- When do eyebrows start to grow out after eyebrow transplantation?
Eyebrows begin to grow out in 3 months after the hair transplant procedure. They will assume their final form in 7-8 months. Please remember that, as with hair transplantation, transplanted eyebrow hair will start to fall out after 15 days. This will continue for approximately 3 months and will then reduce and stop. The transplanted eyebrows will only then begin to grow. Since the hair follicles are obtained from the nape, the hair will grow faster than regular eyebrow hair. This means you will have to trim your eyebrows every 15 days. This condition will start to improve after 1 year, as the follicles will start to assume the qualities of the region to which they are implanted. After they fully adapt, they will not require any trimming.
