Eyebrows are a critical facial feature that helps to define the way we look. In many ways, eyebrows are more important to one’s appearance than scalp hair, as eyebrows are in a more central position on the face and serve to frame the eyes (the single most important facial element). Unlike the loss of scalp hair, the loss of one’s eyebrows is not viewed as a natural process and is, therefore, not cosmetically acceptable.
Eyebrow restoration is similar to other hair transplant procedures performed on the scalp, in that, for appropriate candidates, the transplanted hair is permanent. However, because eyebrows have their own unique attributes, eyebrow transplants differ from hair transplants in a number of important ways.
The most important aspect of transplanting eyebrows is to follow the natural hair direction very closely.
Four tips for transplanting eyebrows:
- Use single-hairs in the transplant, not grafts of multiple hairs
- Hairs should be rotated to follow the natural curve of the brow
- The transplanted hair must be planted to lie as flat to the skin surface as possible
- The transplanted grafts should account for changes in the natural direction of the hair in different parts of the eyebrow, with the upper hairs of the eyebrow pointing out and slightly downward and the lower ones pointing out and slightly upward, creating an interlocking ridge that gives eyebrows their fullness
In contrast to hair transplants, where the donor's hair is taken from another part of the scalp and matches perfectly, with eyebrow transplants, the hair is taken from a part of the body other than the eyebrows and will thus have slightly different characteristics with regard to both growth rate and appearance. If they are different, then over time, the transplanted scalp hair will slowly begin to approximate the growth pattern and characteristics of the existing eyebrow hair – but it may never totally match it.
The appearance of an eyebrow transplant will mature over the course of a year. At that time, an additional eyebrow hair transplant procedure may be considered. During this interval, the eyebrow can be tweezed and shaped as needed.
I highly recommend Dr. Guney. I have had two procedures in total over 5 years, one facial and 1 breast procedure, both went perfectly and very happy afterwards. I recommend him to everyone around me. He and his team are friendly and professional. Special thanks to patient care specialist Ceyda, all the best!
