What Is an Eyebrow Transplant

Eyebrow hair loss, much like hair loss on the scalp, is a prevalent issue. Natural eyebrow hair transplants offer a non-surgical solution to enhance the density of eyebrows affected by thinning or complete loss of hair in that area. This cosmetic procedure involves extracting follicles from the donor site, typically the back of the scalp, and implanting them into the sparse areas of the eyebrows to create a more aesthetically pleasing appearance that complements the face shape.

Similar to hair transplantation, the techniques and procedures involved in eyebrow transplantation are quite similar. However, eyebrow transplant surgeries can be influenced by current fashion trends. Patients may opt for the transplant not only to address thin eyebrows but also to achieve thicker eyebrows in line with prevailing fashion preferences.

Eyebrow Transplant Techniques 

There are two primary methods for hair transplant procedures: DHI (Direct Hair Implantation) and FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction). The most advanced technology currently utilized for natural eyebrow transplants is the DHI Technique, which employs Choi Pens for precise transplantation, ensuring both proper density and direction for the eyebrow area.

The hair follicles extracted from the donor region must possess specific tissue characteristics and alignment suitable for the eyebrows. Additionally, each graft should consist of only one hair follicle.

Suitable Candidates

Eyebrow transplant works for both women and men and is best suited for:

  1. Those who are over 18 years old.
  2. Those who suffer from thin and falling eyebrows.
  3. Those who suffer from complete eyebrow loss.
  4. Cosmetic purposes such as adjusting eyebrow shape or increasing density.

Pre-Operative Tips

There are some instructions that a candidate must follow to avoid side effects and have good results. These are as follows:

  1. Refrain from having any sort of blood thinners, such as green tea or multivitamins, for they contain vitamins A and E.
  2. Refrain from smoking for a month, as it reduces the blood oxygen required for a healthy follicle growth process.
  3. Refrain from having stimulants for at least two weeks before the procedure.
  4. Keep a balanced diet to avoid complications during the procedure.
  5. Refrain from using any medication that has blood thinning properties.

The process of a natural eyebrow transplant involves four key stages:

  1. Initial examination: The doctor assesses the eyebrow area to determine the required number of follicles for transplantation, typically ranging from 50 to 350. They also examine the donor hair to select appropriate follicles for transplantation.
  2. Pre-transplant tests: Certain tests, such as skin and blood tests, are performed to ensure the suitability of the individual for the transplantation process and to check for any factors that may affect the procedure.
  3. Follicle extraction: A portion of the donor area is shaved to facilitate the extraction process. Using a micromotor, follicles containing only one hair are carefully selected.
  4. Transplantation procedure: The doctor utilizes Choi Pens to implant the follicles simultaneously while opening channels in the recipient area. This ensures precise placement of the follicles at the appropriate depth and angle to mimic the natural growth pattern of eyebrows. It is crucial for the expert to consider the direction of hair growth during the transplant to achieve optimal results.



Here are some post-operative guidelines provided by the doctor to ensure optimal growth and protection of transplanted hair:

  1. Avoid washing the treated area for 72 hours following the procedure.
  2. Refrain from smoking for a minimum of two months to maintain adequate oxygen levels in the blood, crucial for follicle growth.
  3. Minimize exposure to sunlight, heat, and high humidity for at least one month. Wear a medical cap outdoors for added protection.
  4. Keep your head elevated and avoid bending forward for at least three days post-surgery.
  5. Take prescribed medications and pain relievers as directed by your doctor.
  6. Avoid Turkish baths and saunas for one month.
  7. Opt for vertical sleeping with two medical pillows to prevent swelling for five days after the procedure.
  8. Steer clear of rain and dust to prevent damage to the follicles.
  9. Refrain from swimming in the sea for three months and in pools for two months.
  10. Be cautious when dressing and undressing to avoid contact with implanted follicles.
  11. Consider specific treatments following a natural eyebrow transplant, such as Plasma needles PRP with suitable medical serums containing vitamins, recommended by your doctor.
  12. Remember that an eyebrow transplant can yield natural-looking and permanent results when performed by skilled professionals using advanced technology.
  13. Prioritize selecting a qualified clinic and expert doctor for your procedure.
