Eyebrows are a critical facial feature that helps define appearance. Eyebrows play an important role in a person’s appearance, as they are located more centrally on the face and serve to frame the eyes. Eyebrow transplant is similar to other hair transplantation procedures performed on the scalp, the transplanted hair is permanent, but due to its unique properties, the scalp has a number of significant differences from hair transplants. There are four different characteristics of eyebrow hair:


The direction of the eyebrow hairs varies dramatically in different parts of the eyebrow. In the area next to the nose, the hair is directed upwards, down the crown of the eyebrow, outwards and down the sides, and in the lower part of the eyebrow, it grows outwards and upwards. The cross-growth pattern allows hairs in the center of the eyebrows to merge to form a thin, natural, height that passes horizontally through the center of each eyebrow.


The fourth feature of eyebrow hair is a relatively short hair growth cycle. Scalp hair has a growth phase that can last from 3 to 7 years, whereas eyebrow hair will only grow for 4 months or so and will fall out and fall out in the resting area.


The third feature is that the eyebrow hairs grow in individual strands, rather than in groups of 1-4 follicular units, which is common in scalp hair.


The second distinctive feature is that the hairs appear in the follicle at a sharp angle, so that they grow to the base of the skin, at an angle of 45 degrees and opposite the skin of the eyebrows.


Eyebrow transplant best at Istanbul or Antalya hospital by specialist operator Doctor is a safe and aesthetically elegant procedure, there are many things to consider before this type of eyebrow restoration. In the process of healing, all wounds contract. This can slightly change the orientation of the hair and cause the eyebrow hair to rise a little more than expected. After the crusting and scars have passed, the eyebrows return to their normal angle and natural cycle.

As with transplantation of hair on the scalp, the hair transplanted to the eyebrows should be cut periodically. This will leave a cut and a thick tip shape that is not as thin as the tip of an untouched hair.

Hair transplanted to eyebrow will have slightly different characteristics in terms of growth and appearance due to the fact that they are taken from another hair part of the body. Over time, the transplanted hair slowly begins to match the eyebrow pattern and the characteristics of the existing eyebrow hair.

Nowadays, transplantation procedures can be successfully applied to completely missing or excessively thinned eyebrows or to camouflage unwanted scars in the eyebrow area. Muscle loss/rarity hereditary (naturally thin eyebrows) may be due to receiving the excess, hair removal (electrolysis or laser), thyroid or other hormonal abnormalities, and trauma (burns, surgery, accidents) may be. Eyebrow transplantation is quite technical and requires a lot of art and precision to achieve an aesthetic result. It is also a very personal decision.


A typical eyebrow transplant may require 50 to 350 grafts per eyebrow, which requires a donor strip of 2.5 to 5 cm from the scalp. DHI or FUE hair transplant techniques can be used in eyebrow transplantation.

The procedure is usually performed under mild oral sedation with local anesthesia and lasts from 2 to 4 hours. It is mostly painless, and patients do not feel anything.

With the exception of minimal blistering and redness in the first 3 to 5 days, patients spend the process fully relaxed, and most of them can return to their routine activities a day after the procedure. Eyebrows should be kept dry for 5 days.

Transplanted eyebrows typically fall out in about 2 to 3 weeks, and then begin to grow back in about 4 months. Regrowth rates may be lower in eyebrow transplant; therefore, a retouching process may be required to optimize symmetry and density at 9 to 12 months. From this point on, they continue to grow throughout life.
