What is Eyebrow Transplant? How Is It Performed?
The procedure that is performed to eliminate the weakness, loss or thinning in the eyebrows is called eyebrow transplant. Eyebrow transplant is usually performed using the FUE technique . The procedure is similar to hair and beard transplantation. Nape is preferred as the donor area in eyebrow transplantation procedures. Nonetheless, in case the nape area is not suitable for this procedure,
a different donor area can be selected. The procedure is performed in three stages
. The first stage is carried out by collecting the healthy and strong hair roots from the donor area. In the second stage, a channel is opened in the transplantation area in a way to ensure a natural look. The channel should be opened carefully.
Accordingly, new eyebrows grow from the roots to be placed in the channels. The growing angle of the eyebrow should be compatible with the general lines of the facial and eyebrow area of the individual. During the procedure,
the opening of the channel is the stage that requires specialty and should be performed very carefully. In the third stage, the collected grafts are placed in the channels opened. That is how the procedure is completed. Since the procedure to be performed in the eyebrow area covers a small area, the eyebrow transplantation is performed in single procedure.

First of all, the area to be transplanted is clarified by determining the eyebrow shape. In this way, the number of grafts to be collected is determined. After the transplantation area is marked, the donor area is determined. Nape is the most commonly preferred donor area, if suitable. This area is preferred due to the durability of the hair growing in this area . After the procedure date is decided, the individual is recommended to quit
alcohol and smoking to ensure a smooth recovery.
