In this case, an undesirable appearance may occur in both men and women. Eyebrow transplantation, which is frequently applied in case of eyebrow loss and eyebrow loss, is a meticulously planned and performed procedure using the techniques in hair transplantation.
What is Eyebrow Transplantation?
The thickness, shape, and facial harmony of the eyebrows support a meaningful, youthful and lively expression, emphasizing facial beauty or attractiveness. The eyebrow area is not only the most striking area on the face. It also plays a decisive role in facial expression.
Therefore, making a design suitable for the face before eyebrow transplantation is perhaps the most important stage of the process. Eyebrow transplantation, which is an effective and permanent method, is frequently used to eliminate sparseness and loss of eyebrows or to have thicker eyebrows. In this context, hair follicles taken from the donor area are transplanted to the parts of the eyebrow that are experiencing hair loss or thinning.
Who is eyebrow transplantation suitable for?
Eyebrow transplantation can be applied to men and women who have completed the age of 18. For eyebrow transplantation, it is required to have a definite and permanent eyebrow loss in the target area. Eyebrow transplantation is not performed in areas without permanent eyebrow loss.
How is eyebrow transplantation performed?
In order to perform eyebrow transplantation, firstly, a sufficient area is shaved in the donor area to take the follicles needed for eyebrow transplantation. The roots taken from the donor area must be kept in a special solution to maintain their vitality until eyebrow transplantation. After the roots are collected, channels are opened in the area to be transplanted in the eyebrow area, which is planned specifically for the person, and grafts are placed one by one. Thus, the eyebrow transplantation process is completed.
Since the appearance of the eyebrows is with the person for life, eyebrow transplantation should be done in the most accurate way. Otherwise, one may be faced with an unaesthetic appearance that is incompatible with the person's face. In order to obtain a natural appearance, the number of channels where the grafts will be transplanted should be maximized during eyebrow transplantation.
The number of grafts to be used must be determined according to the eyebrow structure of the person. The shape of the eyebrow should be taken into account in order to correctly determine the directions of the channels. In order to achieve a natural eyebrow appearance, care should be taken about taking single roots. If the channels for eyebrow transplantation are opened incorrectly, undesirable conditions such as reverse development and weakness may be encountered.
The duration of the eyebrow transplantation procedure performed under local anesthesia may vary depending on the individual. The duration may vary depending on the number of grafts needed.
Recovery Process After Eyebrow Transplantation
On the second day after the eyebrow transplantation procedure, the first washing is performed in the clinic environment. At this stage, the patient is informed about how to do the washing process himself/herself. During the control on the 10th day after the eyebrow transplantation procedure, if the crusting in the eyebrow area continues, a final washing procedure is performed. The purpose of this procedure is to remove the crusts on the eyebrows and to ensure that oxygen reaches the transplanted roots.
After eyebrow transplantation, sports that may cause strain should be avoided for at least 15 days and care should be taken not to be in environments such as a sauna and Turkish bath.
Eyebrows begin to grow in the transplanted area 3 months after eyebrow transplantation. The result of eyebrow transplantation can be seen in about 8 to 10 months. Although eyebrows can grow faster than hair during the first 1 year after eyebrow transplantation, it is possible to obtain a clear eyebrow form after 1 year after the operation.
