The Importance of Eyebrows
Eyebrows are one of the most important facial features that makes a face stand out. Apart from protecting the eyes from dust, dandruff, moisture, eyebrows also allow people to communicate non-verbally.
As the eyebrows have a great influence on people, having thin and weak eyebrows may affect their psychology in a negative way. Most of the people may lose their eyebrows because of ageing, scars, over-plucking, a serious illness or trauma while some people may be born with thin eyebrows.
To have full and well-shaped eyebrows, people, especially women, draw their eyebrows or tattoo them. However, these methods are not permanent and they do not look natural. Tattooed eyebrows look shiny and they fade away soon. Drawing the eyebrows is another way of having thick and dense eyebrows. However, it needs to be done every day and it will be erased easily.
What is Eyebrow Transplant?
Eyebrow Transplant is a safe and easy surgical outpatient procedure that involves taking hair from the back of head and transplanting it to the eyebrow area to achieve the desired, thicker eyebrows. As the transplanted hair is directly taken from the patient’s scalp, it is natural and gives the desired results.
How is Eyebrow Transplant Performed?
Thanks to cutting-edge technology, FUE technique can be used for Eyebrow Restoration, which means that hair is extracted from the back of head and transplanted into the eyebrow area. Before collecting the healthy hair from the back of the head, a small area of the occipital scalp is shaved. While extracting the hair follicles, the special FUE micromotors are used.
Eyebrow Transplant is done under local anaesthesia and the operation lasts for approx. 3 hours. After Eyebrow Transplant, tiny crusts may appear but they will heal in one week. Hair transplanted to eyebrow area will begin to grow very quickly at the beginning, so regular trimming is needed. Over time the growth rate will slow down.
Within 5 weeks the transplanted hairs will fall out. In 3 months the hairs will grow again. When the first 6 months is completed, you will have thick, full and well-shaped eyebrows.
