Eyebrow hair transplantation
Eyebrows are one of the most defining features of the face. The shape and density of eyebrows can change the way we look, give a softer or harsher appearance, and affect the symmetry of the face. Thus, many different techniques to shape eyebrows have been developed and tried over the years. The most commonly used technique is trimming and filling in the eyebrows. However, improper trimming or over plugging can disrupt the look of eyebrows permanently and cause thin or sparse eyebrows. Even though the filling in technique can remedy these problems, it is rather time-consuming. This is why eyebrow transplant is becoming a more popular option for the recovery of sparse or thin eyebrows.
Eyebrow hair transplant procedure
Eyebrow hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure that involves transferring hairs to your eyebrow area to improve the density and shape of your eyebrows. Eyebrow transplant is a similar procedure to a hair transplant. The hair follicles from above your ear or your neck are collected and transplanted to your eyebrow area. The operation is performed under local anaesthesia to ensure maximum comfort. Read more about hair transplant procedure.

Eyebrow scar hair transplant
Eyebrow scars can be frustrating since they are at a prominent place and disrupt the symmetrical look of the face. If you have noticeable eyebrow scars you have probably considered getting rid of them somehow to improve your appearance. Covering the scarred area with hair is one of the best ways to get rid of the scarred look on your eyebrows. Even though scarred tissue may not grow hair on its own, it can support the growth cycle of hair follicles when they are carefully placed on the area. To assess whether you are eligible for an eyebrow scar hair transplant a patch test can be done by our surgeons. If the scarred area supports the growth of transplanted hair follicles, you are good to go. With an eyebrow scar hair transplant in Turkey, you can regain that balanced look on your eyebrows.
Eyebrow transplant for alopecia
Alopecia is the general medical term for hair loss. Hair loss can be caused by several different reasons from diseases, scarring, and chemotherapy to genetics. If you have thinned eyebrows because of alopecia, it is possible to recover from this through an eyebrow transplant. Healthy hair follicles can be collected and transplanted onto the area suffering from eyebrow alopecia to promote healthy hair growth. You can regain your thick healthy looking eyebrows with no scars or stitches.
The recovery process of an eyebrow transplant operation is relatively quicker than other hair transplant procedures. Your first check-up appointment will usually be scheduled for the day after your surgery. You might experience some scabbing within a few weeks. It is important not to pick at these scabs and let the recovery process run on its own. The scabs will fall out in time leaving healed tissue behind. If you experience any bleeding, swelling or inflammation around the donor or transplant area contact medical consultants.
You will be able to continue with your regular life after 48 hours of your surgery. Remember that even though the recovery process is smooth after an eyebrow transplant operation, being able to see the desired results can take some time. It is completely normal to experience shedding at the transplanted area 3 to 5 weeks after your surgery. Hair will start to regrow after 2 months, and you will be able to see the full result of your eyebrow transplant after 4 to 6 months.
Eyebrow transplant aftercare
Aftercare plays an important role in ensuring the best results. Our clinic will provide you with an aftercare list that includes special shampoos, creams, antibacterial serums and painkillers. You can use these to ensure that you are following the best aftercare.
- Avoid drinking for the first few days after your eyebrow transplant surgery as alcohol thins the blood and might cause bleeding.
- It is often advised to avoid strenuous activities for 3 weeks after your operation. You should also avoid swimming in the pool for at least 2 weeks and direct sun exposure for 3-4 weeks after the surgery.
Big question: eyebrow transplant vs microblading
Which eyebrow treatment is better: microblading or eyebrow transplant? This is a question that a lot of people are asking. Microblading is a tattooing technique that is developed to reshape eyebrows and create a more even and thicker eyebrow look. Unlike traditional tattoo machines, microblading is done using a hand-held tool. The sparse eyebrow areas are filled in with fine tattoo strokes that imitate real eyebrow hairs. Unlike eyebrow transplant, microblading is not a permanent solution, and it can only offer a short-term solution comparing to eyebrow transplant.
Deciding on which treatment is the better option entirely depends on your goals and expectations. If you want a cheaper and quicker fix, then microblading might be the right option for you. However, if you are looking for a long-term solution with a more natural look, then an eyebrow transplant is a better choice.
Eyebrow transplant for men

Eyebrow transplant is a suitable operation for men. Your surgeon can transplant healthy hair follicles to the eyebrow area to create the shape and thickness you desire.
