    What is an eyebrow transplant?

    Eyebrow transplant is one of the types of hair transplant and is a simple and permanent way to restore gaps or thin areas in the eyebrows.

    The process involves taking healthy hair follicles from the back of the head (the donor area) and planting them in the eyebrows to fill and thicken the gaps.

    Hair follicles are extracted with the help of a robotic device called a micromotor.

    Eyebrow transplantation is not a long procedure, it takes about 2 to 3 hours. According to the areas to be transplanted, the number of transplanted hair grafts ranges between 50-300 grafts.

    How does an eyebrow transplant work?

    Eyebrow transplantation is performed under local anesthesia in three main stages:

    1# First, the medical team shaves the donor area at the back of the head to remove the hair follicles.

    2# Second, the doctor then creates incisions or channels on the eyebrows which must mimic the natural hair growth angles for normal hair growth.

    #3 The last step is to place or implant the extracted hair follicles into the canals.

    In the end, the hair will start to grow within 3 months and the end result will be visible after 8-9 months.

    Keep in mind that after eyebrow transplantation, you will need to trim the transplanted hairs every 10 to 15 days.

    What are the suitable cases for eyebrow transplantation?

    Both women and men can get an eyebrow transplantation; however, women are more inclined toward getting thicker and fuller eyebrows.

    In the old days, thin eyebrows were the trend, so women would pluck their eyebrows to become very thin. But recently, thick eyebrows have become the new and favorite trend of many.

    Despite the trend, many people lose their eyebrows due to accidents, burns, or are naturally born without eyebrows. Then, in this case, eyebrow hair transplantation is the right choice for them.

    In short, the appropriate cases for eyebrow transplantation are:

    • People who have gaps and suffer from thin eyebrows.
    • Those who don’t naturally have hair on their eyebrows.
    • Individuals who have had accidents or burns which left some gaps in their eyebrows.
    • People who have lost their eyebrows due to chemotherapy.
    • People with eyebrow loss due to an underactive thyroid gland.

    In the case of people who suffer from obsessive plucking of eyebrows. These people can only get the operation done if they get treated for this syndrome and stop pulling their hair for at least a year.

    Eyebrow Transplant Cost

    The cost of an eyebrow transplantation is high compared to other hair transplant operations such as head hair transplantation or beard transplant.

    This is due to the sensitivity of this type of operation, which requires high skills and accuracy.

    It is known that hair transplantation in the facial area is more expensive than in the head. Because the face is a sensitive area and any mistake during the operation may lead to permanent deformities.

    The cost of eyebrow hair transplant ranges between 3000-8000 USD, while the costs can be reduced by performing it in another country such as Turkey.

    We find that the cost of an eyebrow transplant in Turkey usually ranges from $1800 to $2300 at accredited and trusted clinics.

    Are the results of eyebrow hair transplant permanent?

    Because the hair grafts are taken from (the donor area), they are resistant to the DHT hormone, which causes hair loss.

    This makes the results of eyebrow hair transplantation permanent and long-lasting, and the hair never falls out. 

    You will get a natural eyebrow that you can trim and shape the way you want.

    The advantages and disadvantages of eyebrow transplantation

    Each cosmetic procedure has some advantages and disadvantages, and the same applies to eyebrow transplantation.

    Advantages of eyebrow transplantation:

    • Restores lost hair from the eyebrows.
    • Provides thicker eyebrows, especially for people who suffer from very thin eyebrows.
    • Another benefit of eyebrow hair transplantation is that the hair will remain for life and will not fall out as long as the process is done correctly.
    • You will not have to use makeup to hide the gaps in the eyebrows.

    Disadvantages of eyebrow transplantation:

    • Depending on how fast your hair grows, you will need to trim your eyebrows occasionally after the surgery. This is because the hair extracted from the back of the head grows longer than the hair of the eyebrows.
    • If the process is done incorrectly, this leads to hair growth in different directions and gives an unnatural appearance.
    • Hair may not look as soft as natural eyebrow hair due to the different textures.

    Recovery after eyebrow transplant

    The recovery phase after eyebrow transplantation is short and takes about 10 days. 

    Also, since the number of transplanted follicles is less than that of head or beard hair transplantation, the scabs are less.

    Some side effects of eyebrow transplant

    The side effects of an eyebrow transplant are the same as a head or beard hair transplant. It includes:

    • Swelling of the forehead and the area around the eyes.
    • The appearance of scabs in the transplanted areas.
    • Itching.
    • Numbness and temporary nerve damage in some cases.
    • Sometimes infection and inflammation may occur.
    • Redness.
