Brow Transplantation

Brow transplantation is performed by transplanting hair follicles taken from the donor area of a person to the eyebrow area.

It is very common to show thin eyebrows fuller by applying make-up. However, eyebrow transplantation is increasingly gaining ground in cosmetic surgery as a permanent solution. Although it has a simple procedure, its cost, risks, and side effects must also be considered. So, it is important for people who want to have eyebrow transplantation to get detailed information about the procedure.


How is Brow Transplantation Applied?

The method used for eyebrow transplantation is either DHI or FUE techniques, the same as the hair transplant. The operation is performed under local anesthesia.

The location of the donor area is determined by the doctor. The ideal area for eyebrow transplantation is often the nape because the hair follicles on the nape are durable.

An average of 500 grafts may be enough to achieve a healthy eyebrow appearance. The number of grafts may vary from person to person, depending on the structure and thickness of the existing eyebrow. Doctors carefully place the follicles at an angle. This stage is important and an experienced doctor is needed.



Factors That Cause Brow Loss

There are certain factors that cause eyebrow loss.


  • Aging: Decrease due to changes in hormones,
  • Medications: Some medications damage hair cells and cause hair follicles to fall out,
  • Nutrition: Decrease due to unbalanced nutrition,
  • Genetics: Male pattern and female pattern hair loss are separate. Such hereditary conditions are among the most common causes of eyebrow loss.
  • Psychological: Stressful events can cause eyebrow loss, albeit temporarily.



Brow Transplantation: Recovery

The recovery period in the treatment of eyebrow transplantation is relatively fast. Within a few days after the treatment, crusting is noticed around the brows. These should not be removed.

Heavy exercises should be avoided for 3 weeks after the operation. After a few weeks, the transplanted hair falls out, this is called the "shock loss" process and is completely normal. New eyebrow hairs begin to grow within a few months following this step. The transplanted hairs may need to be shortened according to the desired eyebrow length.

With the FUE technique, eyebrow transplantation is a permanent solution. It generally lasts a lifetime.

Local anesthesia and sedation are used in the treatment of eyebrow transplantation, so the procedure is not painful.

The price of eyebrow transplant treatment varies according to the scope of the operation, the wishes of the candidate, and the clinic.
