What Is an Eyebrow Transplant

As well as hair loss, eyebrow hair loss is also a common problem. A natural eyebrow hair transplant is a non-surgical cosmetic procedure aiming to increase the density of eyebrows suffering from thinness or complete hair loss in that area. The follicles are removed from the donor area (the back of the scalp) to replace the missing eyebrow follicles in a manner that fits the shape of the face.

 

As the techniques and the operation are conducted, eyebrow transplantation is almost identical to hair transplantation. However, eyebrow transplantation operations may be influenced by fashion. The transplant can be performed not because the patient has thin eyebrows but because they want thicker eyebrows due to the influence of current trends.

Eyebrow Transplant Techniques

Two main hair transplant techniques are DHI and FUE Techniques (Follicular Unit Extraction). The latest technology for natural eyebrow transplant surgery is DHI Technique. DHI uses Choi Pens for the transplant, which can effectively provide the required density and direction for the brow area.

 

The individual hair follicles picked out from the donor area should have a certain tissue and direction that fits with the eyebrows. Moreover, each graft must contain only one hair.

Suitable Candidates

Eyebrow transplant works for both women and men and is best suited for:

 

  1. Those who are over 18 years old.
  2. Those who suffer from thin and falling eyebrows.
  3. Those who suffer from complete eyebrow loss.
  4. Cosmetic purposes such as adjusting eyebrow shape or increasing density.

Pre-Operative Tips

There are some instructions that a candidate must follow to avoid side effects and have good results. These are as follows:

 

  1. Refrain from having any sort of blood thinners, such as green tea or multivitamins, for they contain vitamins A and E.
  2. Refrain from smoking for a month, as it reduces the blood oxygen required for a healthy follicle growth process.
  3. Refrain from having stimulants for at least two weeks before the procedure.
  4. Keep a balanced diet to avoid complications during the procedure.
  5. Refrain from using any medication that has blood thinning properties.

Stages Of Eyebrow Transplant

A natural eyebrow transplant is conducted in four simple steps that can be summarized as follows:

  • Clinical examination — The doctor first examines the eyebrows area to determine the number of follicles needed for transplantation. Depending on the person’s condition, it usually ranges from 50 to 350 follicles. The doctor will then examine the donor hair to determine the type of follicles that will be transplanted.
  • Necessary tests — Some tests, like skin and blood tests, are mandatory before the transplantation to identify blood sugar levels and see if something alters the eyebrows transplantation process. 
  • Picking out the follicles — Part of the donor area is shaved to make picking more accessible. The follicles whose bulb contains only one hair are selected using a micromotor.
  • Eyebrow transplantation — The doctor uses Choi Pens to implant the follicles simultaneously when the channels are opened, with one click. The follicles are planted at a certain depth and angle that suits the natural shape of the natural brows and provides high intensity. The essential point of a natural eyebrow transplant is that the expert must examine the direction in which the hair grows and conduct the transplant accordingly.

Post-Operative Tips

The doctor instructs the patient to protect the transplanted hair and have the desired hair growth in the area. The instructions are as follows:

  1. Do not wash the procedure area for 72 hours.
  2. Refrain from smoking for at least two months to maintain the oxygen rate in the blood, which is necessary for the growth of transplanted follicles.
  3. Refrain from excessive exposure to sunlight, heat, and high humidity for a month, and wear a medical cap outside.
  4. Do not bend your head forward; keep it high and in a parallel line for at least three days.
  5. Take the necessary medications and painkillers prescribed by your doctor.
  6. Refrain from the Turkish bath and the sauna for a month.
  7. Try to sleep vertically using two medical pillows to lift your head for five days after the procedure to avoid swelling. 
  8. Refrain from rain or dust to avoid harming the follicles. 
  9. Refrain from swimming in the sea for three months and in the pool for two months. 
  10. Be careful when putting on and taking off clothes, and avoid contact with implanted follicles. 
  11. Specific treatments are recommended after a natural eyebrow transplant. These treatments can strengthen the implanted follicles and support the growth of the newly implanted follicles relatively faster. Some medicines are — Plasma needles PRP—using the appropriate medical serums. Your doctor will recommend the kind of serum mainly consisting of vitamins.

An eyebrow transplantation can give excellent results and a permanent solution to eyebrow hair loss or thinning.

Keep in mind that an eyebrow hair transplant can look as natural as your hair if done by experts and with the latest technology. When choosing a doctor or clinic, ensuring that the clinic is qualified and the doctor is an expert is essential.
