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 Cost

Eyebrow Transplant Cost

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. In most cases, the number of follicles that need to be transplanted determines the final cost. As such, the cost of a hair or Eyebrow transplantation operation is almost always determined after a consultation, during which the doctor determines the extent of the procedure in accordance with the patient’s wishes and expectations to have the best results.

Eyebrow Transplant Results

Even though eyebrow transplant is usually done to repair any damage eyebrows may suffer due to accidents, medical operations, over-plucking, due to medicine used for the treatment of various diseases, including cancer, or simply because they are naturally very thin, it is also another way to enrich a person’s looks by giving them a stronger eyebrow presence that is shaped according to their preferences. Eyebrows also protect the eyes from various foreign substances and from being affected directly by harmful sunlight when it shines directly above, as such it is a good idea to have as healthy eyebrows as possible.

It is vitally important to understand that any hair transplantation results are not instantaneous. After the operation, the hair will fall off naturally, as the follicles take root again. Although it varies case by case, It takes approximately three months for the transplanted eyebrow follicles to start to grow in with the original eyebrow hairs, and after this there should be no sign that procedure was ever performed.

Stages of Eyebrow Transplant

Stages of Eyebrow Transplant

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.

Frequently asked questions

  • How Long the Eyebrow Transplant Operation Last?

    The patient will need to take a sick day for the transplant itself, which can take up to five hours depending on the number of grafts taken. After that, under normal conditions, a few days of slight swelling and redness is usually the worst after effect. Unless the doctor states otherwise, the area can be washed 72 hours after the operation. It may take 4-5 days for the crust and clots to disappear completely. No special medication is required during the recovery period.

  • What are the Possible Risks of Eyebrow Transplant?

    As with any medical or surgical procedure, an eyebrow transplant also carries some risks. It is possible, but very rare, to experience bruising, swelling, redness, pain, even scarring in the eyebrows. These are the same risks with a regular hair transplant. Since Follicular Unit Extraction is done with local anesthesia, this means that the risks associated with general anesthesia don’t apply, whether it’s for a hair or an Eyebrow transplant.

  • What are the Side Effects of Eyebrow Transplant?

    In most cases, the hair used for eyebrow transplants comes from the back of the nave. Under ideal conditions, the surgeon only takes one out of every fifth hair, and the number of hairs removed is far too few compared to other hair transplantation procedures so while the donor area may look slightly thinner, it won’t be immediately obvious. For a few days after the operation, there may be some slight bleeding, clotting, and crust forming in the area, but these will fade very quickly.

  • Will Eyebrow Transplant Results Look Natural?

    Anyone who sees the patient after one month of hair growth would be hard-pressed to notice any kind of operation done. As long as the eyebrow transplant procedure is done by an experienced surgeon and a well trained, skilled healthcare support team, the results will look natural. It is also important so choose a surgeon who specializes in hair transplants to achieve the best results.

  • Is Eyebrow Transplant surgery painful?

    The incisions made during the eyebrow transplant procedure are tiny, so they will not produce a pain stronger than a small pinch. Follicular Unit Extraction is also done with local anesthesia, which helps to alleviate any pain the patient may feel. This means that the risks associated with general anesthesia as in other plastic surgery procedures don’t apply, whether it’s for hair, beard or an eyebrow transplant.
