What is eyebrow transplantation and how is it done?

Eyebrow transplantation is a non-surgical procedure performed to give sparse or shed eyebrows a fuller and more aesthetic appearance. It is generally preferred in cases where your eyebrows are sparse, shedding, lost due to injury or insufficient due to genetic reasons. Eyebrow transplantation can significantly affect a person’s facial expression and appearance.

How is eyebrow transplantation done?

Eyebrow transplantation is usually performed using the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) method. In this method, the individual’s own hair follicles are taken and transplanted to the eyebrow area. The process stages are as follows:

  1. Consultation First, there is a consultation with a specialist doctor. The doctor evaluates your eyebrow structure, listens to existing problems and understands the desired result. As a result of this evaluation, it is determined how many hair follicles are needed in which areas.
  2. Donor Site Selection: Hair follicles to be used in eyebrow transplantation are usually taken from the nape or temple areas. These areas are usually resistant to shedding and contain healthy hair follicles.
  3. Anesthesia Local anesthesia is applied to the donor and transplantation areas before the procedure. This way you will not feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure.
  4. Collection of Hair Roots: Hair follicles are collected one by one using the FUE method. This micro-motor or manual procedure allows the hair follicles to be removed without damaging them.
  5. Preparation of the Planting Area: Micro channels are opened to place hair follicles in the areas where eyebrow transplantation will be performed. These channels allow the hair follicles to be placed in a natural way.
  6. Transplantation of Hair Roots: The collected hair follicles are placed one by one in the opened channels. At this stage, it is aimed to carefully achieve a natural look.
  7. Recovery Process: There may be slight redness and crusting after the procedure. However, these symptoms usually disappear within a few days. Although the healing process varies from person to person, you can usually return to your social life within a week.
