An eyebrow transplant is a surgical procedure where hair follicles are transplanted to the eyebrows to create or enhance their appearance. The process typically involves the following steps:
- Consultation: The patient meets with a qualified surgeon to discuss their desired eyebrow shape, density, and overall goals. The surgeon will evaluate the patient’s suitability for the procedure.
- Donor hair extraction: Hair follicles are usually harvested from the back of the head using micro FUE technique.
- Recipient site creation: Tiny incisions or recipient sites are made in the eyebrow area, where the transplanted hair follicles will be placed. The surgeon considers factors such as natural brow architecture and desired results.
- Hair graft placement: The extracted hair follicles are carefully implanted into the recipient sites, following the natural direction and angle of eyebrow hair growth. Special attention is given to creating a natural-looking result.
- Post-operative care: Patients receive instructions on how to care for the transplanted area, which may include medication, gentle washing, and avoiding activities that could disrupt healing.
- Recovery and growth: After a shedding phase, new hair growth begins within a few months. Full results can be seen within 6 to 12 months after the procedure.
