What is the procedure for eyebrow transplant?
Similar to hair and beard transplantation, hair grafts taken from the donor area at the back of the head are transplanted into the eyebrow area. Small incisions are made carefully enough to preserve the patient’s natural appearance throughout the brow area. Then the grafts taken from the donor area are precisely planted in the incision sites. The size, shape, density and placement angle of the grafts for eyebrow transplantation are very important and differ from patient to patient.
Male and female patients have different eyebrow structures. Male patients tend to have thicker, wider, and less curved eyebrows, while female patients have a thinner and more curved eyebrow structure. Since some breeds have thicker eyebrows than others, factors such as ethnicity should be considered when performing eyebrow transplantation. The number of grafts transplanted depends on the patient’s appearance; however, on average, the number of grafts for each eyebrow varies between 100-150. The grafts are carefully selected in terms of thickness and color; in order to preserve the natural thinness, only single grafts are transplanted to the eyebrows. Eyebrow transplantation is done with the FUE technique.
