Eyebrow Hair Transplant

The eyebrow transplant have become an increasingly popular operation in recent years. The grafting of follicular bulbs in the eyebrow is an operation that arose from the need to thicken and delineate sparse and thin eyebrows. In extreme cases it may even serve for partial or complete reconstruction.

What are the causes of thinning

The causes of the thinning of the eyebrows are multiple. The majority of the “victims” afflicted by this problem are women, as they are more subject to unregulated use of beauty tools. The classic tweezers, harmless in themselves, can damage the eyebrows when used excessively and can lead to the weakening of many hair bulbs, which become sterile.

Among the other causes of thinning, we find complications of a medical and nervous nature, in particular :

  • Burns, accidents or traumas
  • Illnesses
  • Physiological problems
  • Missed natural development
  • Radiotherapy, chemotherapy and surgery
  • Natural aging

A last, more unusual cause is called trichotillomania: a nerve syndrome that can be traced back to a real obsessive compulsive disorder that causes people to tear their hair and hair.

The Eyebrow Transplant Process

1
The Comfort-In tool

Anaesthesia

The donor and recipient area are numbed with the needleless Comfort-In anaesthetic.

2
Removal of the individual hair grafts

Extraction of the Grafts

Your hairs are removed from the donor area using the FUE method.

3
Transplanting the hair into the recipient area

Inserting the Grafts

The follicular units are transplanted into your eyebrows using either the DHI technique or the Sapphire method.

Who can make an eyebrow transplant ?

Please note that it is always necessary to consult a doctor (or a psychotherapist) before any aesthetic intervention. Given that anyone can undergo this kind of operation, men and women. However, following the same principles as capillary surgery, the grafting of hair bulbs requires a base of hair that will be used as a “donor area”.

To be chosen, the bulbs must generate only one hair (some may even contain up to 3-4). The hair must also be strong enough and often able to support the graft. The lack of suitable hair may compromise the final result and for this reason the intervention is not recommended for those who do not have it. Unsure about if your donor area is suitable ? Then don’t hesitate to ask our experts for advice, who will give you a free consultation.

Once this have been validated, the next step is to choose the surgery technique that will be performed by the surgeon.

The healing phase

After an eyebrow transplant the natural crusts that form will naturally fall within a week. Subsequently you will lose the hair that has not caught on well but you should not worry. It is a natural consequence of the hair cycle and they will grow back. The regrowth will be completed within 12 months and your new eyebrows will be more beautiful and stronger than ever.

Attention must be paid to one element in particular: the transplanted follicles posses the same physiological characteristics that they previously had. Simply put, they will grow and behave as they have always done. It will therefore be necessary to take care to cut and adjust the length of the new hair with the help of scissors. This in order to avoid disproportionate growth.

What is the price?

As anticipated, this surgery procedure is an operation that works on both numbers and precision. Prices are significantly influenced by the size of the transplant, the legislation and the offer in the country where the service is purchased.

Turkey with its tradition in the field of aesthetic surgery, its competitive prices and favorable tax regime is an ideal location to perform a hair surgery. Are you interested or want to know more ?
