Eyebrow Transplantation

Are your eyebrows thin or gone, for example due to years of plucking? With a small needle, the surgeon removes hairs from the back or side of your head one at a time. These are placed in growth fluid and then placed in your eyebrow. Because the surgeon pays special attention to the growth direction of the eyebrow, a very natural result is created after the eyebrow treatment.

Drawing your eyebrows day in, day out eventually becomes very annoying. Recognizable? Then an eyebrow transplant is really something for you. During the free, first consultation at one of our locations in the Netherlands, your advisor will take the time to tell you everything about how an eyebrow transplant works. Are you convinced? Then we immediately schedule the treatment.

What is an Eyebrow Transplant? 

In Estenuvo, the transplant team has all the attention for you and you will be treated in every luxury. First of all, the surgeon removes the hair follicles – also called grafts – one by one from the hair crown at the back of your head, using the FUE technique. Because it concerns a smaller volume of hairs, shaving is not necessary for an eyebrow transplant. Of course this takes place under local anesthesia, so you will feel little or nothing.

Eyebrow Transplant in Turkey – Istanbul 

Eyebrow Transplant Turkey is one of the most common procedures. Istanbul is one of the cities where hair transplantation and all hair transplantation-based operations (including eyebrow transplantation) are most demanded. If you want to have an eyebrow transplant in Istanbul, Estenuvo will be the right address for you. A typical eyebrow transplant process in Estenuvo is as follows;

A hair transplant of the eyebrows is performed under local anesthesia. The desired shape is drawn on the surface to be treated. Much attention must be paid to the balance and shape of the eyebrows and face of each individual.

During the first consultation, a donor area is determined (usually from the back of the head). The hair is harvested from the donor area. These donor hairs are then placed in the planned bald spots on the brow area in individual small incisions just large enough to implant the hair follicles.

Once transplanted, the hair follicles will grow new hair 3-4 months after the procedure. The best results are seen after 6-8 months.

Eyebrow transplants are difficult and should be performed by a skilled doctor to leave scars. The hair near the eyebrow grows obliquely and not straight as on the head or in the beard. This must be taken into account during the treatment to guarantee a good end result.

Restoring the growth line and growth direction of the eyebrows is difficult, but not impossible with the FUE method. Our doctors can use special equipment to make the hair follicles change direction by up to 50 degrees. This naturally builds and shapes the eyebrow.

How to Eyebrow Hair Transplant?

To ensure that the eyebrows will grow properly, the hairs are first placed in a special growth fluid. This gives the hairs a real boost so that they grow better once they are replaced.

Then the surgeon creates small skin channels in your eyebrows with a needle, in which the hair follicles are placed one by one. The hairs are placed in a natural direction, so that the transition with your existing eyebrows also looks natural. The hairs grow within a few days after the eyebrow transplant.

A few months after the eyebrow transplant you will visit us for a check-up, so that we can see whether the eyebrow hairs have started to grow properly. The final result will be visible after about a year and we will schedule a final check-up appointment with you. We can then see whether the result is exactly what you had in mind.

How Long Does Eyebrow Transplant Surgery Take? 

The duration of the procedure depends on the transplant technique used. With an eyebrow transplant according to the FUT method, the treatment time is between 3 and 4 hours. This depends on the number of hair follicles being transplanted. If you are being treated with the FUE method, you must take into account a treatment duration of about 6 hours on average. Here too, the exact time also depends on the number of grafts.

Who is Good Candidate for Eyebrow Transplant? 

Both men and women can be suitable candidates for an eyebrow transplant. To be eligible for the procedure, your general health must be good. Have you lost your eyebrows due to burns, trauma or plucking? Then an eyebrow transplant may be a solution. For other causes of hair loss such as alopecia areata and/or androgenetic alopecia, an experienced hair transplant doctor will determine your suitability. If the expected results are not realistic, a doctor may suggest another treatment. After all, the purpose of eyebrow hair transplantation is to improve your eyebrows.

Eyebrow Transplant versus Microblading 

Microblading is a form of semi-permanent make-up (semi-PMU). With this technique, pigment is applied to the skin, so that the effect is long-lasting, but not 100% permanent.

Microblading is similar to eyebrow tattooing, but unlike tattooing, the effect of microblading is more natural. A tattooed eyebrow is also permanent, which means that you are stuck with the set eyebrows forever. The effect of microblading lasts up to three years. Do you prefer a permanent result? Then you can opt for an eyebrow transplant.

Microblading is offered under different names. For example, microblading is sometimes called PMU hair strokes and in other salons microblading is explained as 3D hair strokes. In most cases, this involves the same technique.

Eyebrow Transplant Post-Op Instructions

Despite the length of the procedure, most people recover fairly quickly. After you have left the clinic and recover from the treatment at home, you can often resume your activities the next day. It goes without saying that heavy physical work should be postponed for a few days.

Immediately after the procedure, your eyebrows may be slightly swollen. The appearance of small bruises is unavoidable. If desired, you can use cooling to reduce swelling. In general, both the swelling and the discoloration decrease quickly in the hours to days after the eyebrow transplant. It will then no longer be visible that you have undergone an operation.

Can Men have Eyebrow Transplantation? 

Yes, eyebrow transplantation for men is possible. An eyebrow transplant is performed with the so-called FUE method. The abbreviation FUE stands for Follicular Unit Extraction. With the FUE method, grafts (hair follicles of 1 to 3 hairs) are removed from the back of the head one by one. The grafts are then checked for quality and then replaced one by one as eyebrow hair. With an eyebrow transplant, approximately 200 to 300 grafts are transplanted. The transplanted grafts will continue to produce hair for a lifetime. So, as you see, there is not any difference between other procedures from hair transplantation. So, men can have eyebrow transplant.

Eyebrow Transplant Before and After

Eyebrow transplant before and after processes are really important to consider. Before the operation, you need to follow the instructions that your doctor told you about the preparation. 

The transplanted hairs have grown together after a few days. It is normal for the transplanted hair to fall out before regrowing. This takes 3 to 4 months. It is possible that the transplanted hairs are longer than the other eyebrow hairs. You can take extra care of the eyebrows by trimming them. The results of an eyebrow transplant are permanent.

Eyebrow Transplant Results

With an eyebrow transplant, very small channels are first made in your skin at the place where your (partially) new eyebrow should come. The doctor ensures that the direction of the channels matches the direction of your existing eyebrow hair. The hair follicles with the donor hair are placed in a natural orientation with the existing hair of your eyebrow. Thanks to eyebrow transplantation, a very natural transition is created between the transplanted hair and the existing eyebrow hair. First the hair falls out. Within a few days after the transplant, the hair follicles grow solid.

The first hair growth can be seen after 1 month, instead of after 3 months. The number of hair follicles that are transplanted strongly depends on the size of the bald or thinly haired eyebrow area and your wishes regarding the density and size of your eyebrows.

During a free and non-binding intake, one of our specialists can make an accurate estimate. The transplanted hair follicles will continue to produce hair for life. With your new eyebrows you will have a beautiful appearance, full of self-confidence.

Eyebrow Transplant Cost

The cost of an eyebrow transplant depends on the number of grafts you need and other conditions. With an eyebrow transplant, the number of grafts is around 100 / 200 to 300.

Yes, it does as much as the natural eyebrow.

Yes, it completely works. Always follow the instructions and directions of the treating physician. For a smooth recovery and satisfactory end result, for example, it is important to stop smoking in good time before the procedure and to limit the use of alcohol to a minimum. In the weeks after the eyebrow transplant, be careful and restrained with intensive sports, swimming and a visit to the sauna. Listen to your body and take the time to let your skin recover.

An eyebrow transplant is a day treatment. This means that such treatment takes on average between four and seven hours. The duration of the treatment partly depends on the number of grafts that are placed.

After a day’s treatment, some aftercare after the eyebrow transplant is necessary. Aftercare ensures that your eyebrow hair and skin remain optimally healthy and that you quickly get and maintain the desired result.

After the eyebrow transplant you can leave the clinic within half an hour. Please note that the area around the eyebrows may swell slightly. The eyebrows can also start to itch right after the treatment. Do not try to scratch here, because otherwise there is a risk of infection and this is not good for healing. These effects are temporary in nature and disappear quickly.

Since the transplanted hair comes from the donor area on the back of your head, the hair follicles will produce longer hairs than natural eyebrow hair follicles do. As a result, you will have to trim your eyebrows regularly after the transplant. Over time, the hair will naturally adjust to the new spot and will begin to behave like normal eyebrow hair. Trimming is therefore no longer necessary. After the eyebrow transplant, the hair follicles continue to produce eyebrow hair. The result is then permanent.

No, you don’t feel anything by the help of local anesthesia.
