Eyebrows are very important structures in terms of aesthetics, revealing the beauty of the eyes and face, providing facial integrity and expression. Eyebrows can be lost as a result of traumas, burns, accidents and some skin disorders. Today, the shaping of eyebrows is also under the influence of fashion trends. With the effect of these currents, the eyebrows are shaped by taking them, but as a result of taking them for a while and frequently, the eyebrows can be damaged and some parts of the eyebrows cannot be successful even if they are tried to be thickened later.
Eyebrow transplantation is an effective method for people who have been lost as a result of previous traumas, burns and some skin disorders, who have not regained their place after purchase, and for those who want to have thicker eyebrows. Eyebrow transplantation is a procedure that consists of transplanting hair follicles that are resistant to shedding in the nape area to the eyebrow area. In eyebrow transplantation, the new shape to be given to the eyebrow is planned by keeping within the anatomical limits and by taking into account the wishes of the patient.
Naturalness in Eyebrow Transplantation
Eyebrows should start from the inner level of the eyelids and a few mm from the outer edges of the eyelids. should continue to slide out. Provided that these anatomical limits are kept, the intervention is planned and performed as close to the eyebrow shape desired by the patient as possible. These roots taken from the nape area should be placed at a certain angle and in a certain direction to the region to be transplanted. The angle and direction of the eyebrows are arranged in three different regions of the eyebrows in different directions and at different angles. Hair follicles usually come out of our skin at an angle of 45 degrees. Our eyebrows, on the other hand, emerge from the skin at an angle of approximately 10-15 degrees, which can be considered parallel to our skin, and have a shape that is directed upwards in the inner part of the eyebrow, parallel to the ground as they reach the middle, and slightly downwards on the outer part of the eyebrow.
How Is Eyebrow Transplantation Performed?
Eyebrow transplantation operation is performed with the logic of FUE hair transplantation. Eyebrow transplantation, which takes 1.5-2 hours, is performed under local anesthesia. After the operation, the patient is discharged. Very small pinhead-sized crusts occur in the planting area for up to 1 week. Since these crusts will fall off, the patient can often return to his daily work and social life without knowing anything. Swimming, sauna, solarium, Turkish bath, going out in the hot sun and heavy sports should be avoided for 15 days. The transplanted eyebrows start to grow after 3 months and take their final shape by completing their growth within 7-8 months.
