Eyebrows are one of the most striking parts of our face. People who are satisfied with the appearance of their eyebrows have had eyebrow transplantation in recent years. With the new generation and technology-supported eyebrow transplantation, it is possible to have natural and beautiful eyebrows. Eyebrow transplantation can also be preferred to cover unwanted wounds, burns, and scratches.
How Is Brow Transplantation Performed?
Eyebrow transplant operation is performed similarly to the FUE hair transplant technique. Standard eyebrow transplantation is performed under local anesthesia, and the procedure takes about 2 hours. In eyebrow transplantation, roots taken from the nape area are used as donors. These roots should be placed at the right angle and in the right direction to the area to be transplanted. While hair follicles exit the skin at an angle of 45 degrees, eyebrow roots exit at an angle of 10-15 degrees. It is essential to plant eyebrow roots according to their places. Otherwise, the transplanted eyebrows may grow in the opposite direction or downwards.
Two days after the procedure, the patient comes to the clinic for the first wash. The medical team explains how to wash eyebrows at home for the next ten days. Small scabs occur within seven days after the procedure in the area where eyebrow transplantation is performed. It is recommended to protect your eyebrows from the sun until these scabs fall off.
Ten days after the brow transplantation, the patient is asked to visit the clinic again. If the scabs in the eyebrow area have not gone away, the doctor washes them for the last time. Thus, the eyebrows are cleared of scabs, and the planted roots are provided with oxygen.
Keep in mind that activities such as swimming, sunbathing, or sauna are prohibited for 15 days. The transplanted eyebrows start to grow after an average of 3 months, and the final results appear within 7-8 months. Eyebrows continue to grow healthily after brow transplantation. You can pluck and shape your eyebrows as you wish. Your eyebrows will continue to grow afterward.
