About Eyebrow Transplant
Eyebrow transplant is a form of hair transplant where the hair is taken from another part of the body, usually the back of the neck and transplanted to the area above the eyes. It is also possible to use hair from the back of the arms and armpits for transplantation as these hairs are very enduring. This procedure can either establish a hair presence in an area where none exists or augment the hair present in the eyebrows. During eyebrow transplantation procedure an average of 500 hair grafts can be transplanted. Since this procedure takes place above the eyes and at a part of the face where attention is usually drawn to, extra care must be taken for the hair to grow in the right direction.
Eyebrow Transplant Methods
The first step in eyebrow transplantation is always the consultation. During the consultation, the doctor examines the patient and after listening to their expectations, explains what can be done. Eyebrow transplant surgery is done with the same technology used to perform hair transplant surgery. As such, the patient must have a sufficient number of hairs in a donor area that adequately match the color and texture of the existing eyebrows. The new shape to be given to the eyebrow is designed in the most suitable way for the patient and the face, in line with their wishes and needs.
After the patient approves the new eyebrow shape designed specifically for them, the actual transplantation begins. Eyebrow transplantation should always be carried out by experts in a sterile area. FUE technique used in eyebrow transplantation is performed using local anesthesia. The follicles are taken from the donor region. Then they are implanted into the channels opened in the eyebrow area by special blades. The growing direction of the eyebrow hairs is different for each person and changes from one part of the eyebrows to another.
After the operation is complete, it is possible to return back to the work after a day’s rest, depending on the doctor’s suggestion.
On the other hand the FUE technique, which started to be applied after 2002, has yielded very successful and comfortable results. The primary difference of the FUE eyebrow transplant method compared to the previous eyebrow transplant method is that the eyebrow follicles in the nape region are collected one by one without creating a linear incision. In the graft collection process, small incisions are formed around the follicular unit using small punch tips and the eyebrow follicles are collected one by one as invivo and planted in the area where the eyebrow loss occurs. In the eyebrow transplantation process with the FUE method, there is no need for stitches since there is no incision in the donor area and therefore no permanent scar is formed. In addition, other parts of the body can be used as a donor area with this method.
In FUT technique, which has been used for eyebrow transplantation since the 90’s, eyebrow follicles are taken from the donor area together with the skin after local anesthesia is utilized. In the FUT technique, which is a surgical operation, stitching is mandatory in the area where the incision is made. Sutures used in the donor area should be removed after 1 week. While FUT technique is more affordable than other eyebrow transplantation methods, it leaves scars. For this reason, it is not a preferred method these days.
Contrary to what is known, DHI method is not a transplant method that gives denser results than the Fue method. This process is not recommended for planting large areas. This method can be used for small and local areas. Fue eyebrow transplant method is recommended for a more frequent transplant.
Eyebrow Transplantation Process
Eyebrow transplantation process is a procedure that must be followed carefully from the decision stage to the result stage. Choosing the eyebrow transplantation center and your doctor, where the eyebrow transplantation process will be performed together with you, is the most important point of the process. After choosing the eyebrow transplantation center and your doctor, the next step is selecting the hairline design and having the eyebrow transplant operation that your doctor has planned.
On the day of eyebrow transplantation, the first step is to sterilize the eyebrow transplantation area and apply anesthetics. Then, according to the method used, eyebrow follicles are removed from the donor area and recipient holes are created in the direction of the existing eyebrow. After this the hair follicles are planted at correct angles in the planned area to achieve a natural look.
After the eyebrow transplantation, applications related to the region where the transplant is performed and the healing of the wounds on the skin where the transplantation is performed are carried out. In this process, PRP provides easy healing of wounds and nourishes the eyebrow follicles. Precise maintenance is required for both the donor and the transplant area for 15 days after this process.
During the eyebrow transplant operation sedatives are given under supervision of the anesthesiologist, so no pain is felt. These sedatives are a controlled sedative drug application that creates sleepiness in the patient, which allows the patient to relax and calm down. Although the patient is conscious, there may be temporary memory loss. The sedatives are provided in different types and amounts according to the needs of the patient. These sedatives can also be used safely and effectively with young children. While eyebrow transplantation is performed with minimum pain due to the use of sedation, there is always the option to not to use sedation if the patient prefers so.

Eyebrow transplant operations in the UK are usually very expensive operations. As such it is always advantageous to have these operations done in a country where currency exchange rates are favorable. An important factor that determines the eyebrow transplant cost is the skill of the doctor and the team conducting the operation.
