Eyebrow Transplantation

Eyebrow transplantation is a cosmetic surgical procedure designed to restore or enhance the appearance of eyebrows by transplanting hair follicles from other areas of the body to the eyebrows. This procedure is typically sought by individuals who have thinning or sparse eyebrows due to genetics, overplucking, trauma, medical conditions, or aging.

Here’s an overview of how eyebrow transplantation is typically performed:

  1. Consultation: Before the procedure, the patient will have a consultation with a qualified surgeon to discuss their goals, expectations, and medical history. The surgeon will evaluate the patient’s eyebrow anatomy, hair loss pattern, and desired outcome to determine if they are a suitable candidate for eyebrow transplantation.

  2. Donor Hair Harvesting: Hair follicles for eyebrow transplantation are usually harvested from the back of the scalp, which is the most common donor site due to the similarity in hair texture and quality to eyebrow hair. In some cases, hair may also be harvested from other areas of the body, such as the legs or arms.

  3. Hair Follicle Preparation: The harvested hair follicles are carefully dissected under a microscope to isolate individual follicular units containing one to three hairs each. This ensures that the transplanted hairs will closely mimic the natural growth pattern of eyebrow hair.

  4. Recipient Site Preparation: The surgeon will carefully map out the desired eyebrow shape and design on the patient’s skin using a surgical marker. Tiny incisions are then made in the eyebrow area where the hair follicles will be transplanted, taking into account factors such as hair direction, density, and angle of growth.

  5. Hair Transplantation: The prepared hair follicles are meticulously transplanted into the recipient sites in the eyebrows using specialized instruments. The surgeon pays close attention to the natural curvature and orientation of the existing eyebrow hair to achieve a seamless and natural-looking result.

  6. Post-Transplant Care: After the procedure, patients are provided with post-operative instructions and care guidelines to promote proper healing and optimize results. Patients may experience some mild swelling, redness, or scabbing in the transplanted area, which typically resolves within a few days to weeks.

  7. Results: Over time, the transplanted hair follicles will gradually establish blood supply and begin to grow new hair. It may take several months for the full results of the eyebrow transplantation to become apparent, as the transplanted hairs go through the natural hair growth cycle.

Eyebrow transplantation can provide significant improvements in the appearance of sparse or thinning eyebrows, restoring a more youthful and aesthetically pleasing eyebrow shape and density. However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified surgeon who specializes in hair transplantation to ensure the best possible outcome. Reputable institutions with experience in eyebrow transplantation, such as the Istanbul Aesthetic Center (IAC), can provide added assurance and peace of mind during your cosmetic treatment journey.
