Before we start talking about why you would want a hair transplant, let’s talk about all the different techniques which are available in the market these days. We, at FlyHealth, are always searching for new and/or better techniques to make the result of our patients better. Let us start with the main technique, FUE.
What’s the most attractive facial feature that makes a face stand out? While the logical answer to this question would likely be the eyes, nose or mouth—it’s the brows that hold the highest aesthetic value. Beyond their fundamental function as a guardian and a filter against dust, dirt and sweat that might get in your eyes, the aesthetic function of the eyebrows are far more significant that we may think.
Eyebrows are one of the most aesthetic facial features that help define the way we look. Having said that, the loss of eyebrow hairs—or when they become too thin—may affect your self- esteem and deflate your confidence. Being occupied in the central position on the face also gives more prominence and value than other facial features. And unlike the loss of head hair, the loss of one’s eyebrows is not regarded as a natural occurrence and is, therefore, not aesthetically acceptable.
The advent of hair restoration technology has spawned new treatment techniques cosmetically designed to restore facial hair and eyebrow hair. Eyebrow transplantation can be a viable option to restore fullness and dense eyebrow appearance—and when performed properly, can provide outstanding results.
Whether you’ve gone through permanent hair loss in the eyebrow area or are starting to experience thinning due to genetic causes, over-plucking, an eyebrow restoration surgery can be an appropriate treatment. Our hair transplant Turkey and eyebrows restoration experts combine their years of experience in hair restoration with their extensive background in facial plastic surgery to achieve the best possible outcomes. Eyebrow restoration in Turkey is an incredibly artistic procedure in which a brow is individually created based on the facial type, facial features—and results personally customized. Our experienced hair restoration specialists consider the arch shape, appropriate thickness of hair, space between brows and brow length.

Eyebrows transplant Turkey procedure
The procedure is performed in one of our state-of-the-art hair transplant clinics in Istanbul. The area of the eyebrows will be marked with temporary ink to draw and outline the final result and the patient will be asked to see and verify all markings according to their appearance goals and preferences.
Our hair transplant doctors always take your feedback in consideration when designing the outline of your eyebrows to ensure the results are as highly aesthetic and natural appearing as possible. During eyebrows transplant surgery in Turkey, follicular unit extraction Turkey (FUE) technique is employed where the follicles are extracted from the donor area of the scalp and then implanted in the eyebrows area. The eyebrow will be numbed with local anesthetic. Depending on the extent of what you wish to change about appearance, whether a small amount of restoration in order to cover a scar or full restoration to achieve thick eyebrows, the procedure can involve the transplantation of anywhere between 50 and 400 grafts per eyebrow, with each graft containing one or two hairs. When the procedure is completed, you will have a bandage on the donor areas, which can be concealed by growing your hair long enough to camouflage it. You will be able to go home the same day with minimal pain.
Good candidates for eyebrows transplant
Most patients are appropriate candidates for the eyebrow transplantation in Turkey. Being in general good medical condition is important to minimize the risk of complications. Patients who have lost their eyebrow hairs due to a trauma, genetics, or over-plucking are generally suitable candidates for eyebrows transplantation. Those who have experienced alopecia areata, frontal fibrosing alopecia, or several other conditions that might have resulted in the loss of eyebrows may or may not be eligible candidates, due to the risk of unreliable regrowth of the hairs. Your eligibility for eyebrows transplant will be determined by our hair transplant experts, who may recommend a biopsy of the area or consult a dermatologist. Realistic expectations are always important for any surgery- the goal of the treatment is to significantly enhance the appearance of the eyebrows and create the best possible result. However perfection is not typically realistic.
Recovery from eyebrows transplant
Tiny crusts around each transplanted hair and some redness may be expected for the first five days or so, which can be masked with makeup. Some patients have rather significant bruising and swelling around the eyes for the first three days—but most have only minimal amounts. One of the main advantages of eyebrows transplant—compared to other hair restoration techniques— is there is little to no downtime. Most patients are able to return to work the very next day. The donor site hair will be nicely grown in by two weeks. Just like results of hair transplant, hair grows in cycles. Shortly after the transplant process, the transplanted hairs will fall out and your eyebrow will look the way it did before the grafting. That’s completely normal. The hairs will follow their growth cycle and start to regrow in three months. Over the course of nine months to one year, you will see full growth of the eyebrows transplant.
