Nowadays it is also preferred to enhance the appearance of eyebrows by those who do not have any medical problems at all.
How is eyebrow transplant performed?
The same medical protocol is applied as a hair transplant. The most important step is to know the desired design as a result. Your doctor carries out a consultation before the procedure recommending you the most suitable treatment plans, taking your personal liking into account.
In an eyebrow procedure, your hair follicles in the back of your head are utilized. As the recipient area is rather small, it is not necessary to shave a large area in the donor area. A small “window” is shaved in the donor area from where the grafts are extracted.
Another very important issue is the angle and direction of the incisions (canals). Usually they are made with in a 25-30 degree angle to achieve the most natural look possible. In an eyebrow procedure, FUE method is used and mostly around 300-700 grafts can provide a successful result, depending on the density of native eyebrows.
