Eyebrow Hair Transplantation
The problem of eyebrow hair loss, which is frequently seen in women, is mostly permanent. Permanent makeup etc. is usually seen as a solution. However, the most natural solution to this problem will be eyebrow hair transplantation.
Hair loss is the only problem in men. However, women are also exposed to the Alopecia problem in their eyebrows and eyelashes. Eyebrow Loss (Madarosis) affects one out of every 100 women. It is important to pay attention to the problem of eyebrow loss. Otherwise, you can get into an irreversible process.
What Are the Reasons for Eyebrow Hair Loss?
- There are various reasons that cause eyebrow hair loss. The most important of these are;
- Main mistakes of the person such as false plucking of eyebrows
- Health problems experienced by the person
Medicines used in the treatments are among the reasons for temporary and permanent eyebrow loss. At this point, eyebrow transplantation is a solution.
What Should Be Done for Eyebrow Hair Loss?
First of all, a dermatologist should be visited. The underlying cause of eyebrow loss should be investigated. This is because the loss can usually be the result of the person’s mistakes. Along with this, diseases and medications used can cause eyebrow loss. Therefore, it is necessary to be examined by a dermatologist.
You should continue the treatment recommended by your doctor for at least 6 months. If no positive development is seen during this process, there is only one solution. This solution is to have eyebrow transplantation. However, you should not rush for this method. It is necessary to do serious research beforehand. Otherwise, you can have this procedure done by people who do not have enough experience. As a result, you can face very unpleasant results.
FUE technique is used in eyebrow transplantation. It is completed in an average of 3-4 hours by applying local anesthesia. Hair follicles taken from the nape area are used during the eyebrow transplantation. In transplants, follicles should be planted from a certain direction and at a certain angle. The normal angle at the hair follicles is 45 degrees. However, in eyebrow transplantation, follicles are extracted from the skin at an average angle of 10-15 degrees. Therefore, eyebrow transplantation should be performed by experts.
How Is Eyebrow Transplantation Done?
There are some points you need to be aware of while researching for this application. Two techniques are used for eyebrow transplantation. FUT is one of the first and oldest techniques. This technique is frequently used in hair transplantation. However, it is not a method used in beard and eyebrow transplantation. Therefore, the person who will have eyebrow transplantation should know the FUE method. FUE technique was first started to be applied in 2003. FUE is the most successful solution for both hair and eyebrow transplantation. As a result of this method, it is possible to get the most natural result. There is no institution that provides FUE training. Therefore, the number of experts who know this technique is very limited.
In the eyebrow transplantation technique to be applied, hair follicles to be transplanted are taken from the nape. It does not matter whether the procedure is a hair, eyebrow, or beard transplant. Hair follicles to be used in all transplantation are obtained from the human body. A person’s own hairs are used in eyebrow transplantation. For this, an area of 1 cm size in the nape is shaved and shortened. Hair follicles to be transplanted are extracted from the designated area. Hair follicles are extracted one by one with tips not larger than 0.6-0.7 mm. This is because using wider tips causes scars on the scalp. In the FUT technique, they are not taken one by one. Instead, the hairs are separated after the scalp is cut in the operating room. Therefore, the FUT method is not recommended.
Hair follicles taken for transplantation should be planted without waiting. This is because hair follicles are alive cells. So, they need oxygen. Hair follicles take the oxygen/vitamin they need through red blood cells. The follicles taken for transplantation should be transplanted without losing much time. Otherwise, they will die because they will stay without oxygen. Therefore, in the FUE method, the extraction/transplantation process is performed several times. In other words, fewer follicles are taken in one session. Then some more are taken again and transplanted in other sessions.
Eyebrow transplantation should be done at 25-30 degrees of angle. This is because the transplanted eyebrows should not grow straight. There may be problems faced by experts who have no experience in this field. The most common problem faced by doctors in this situation is the problem of hair growth in a straight direction. In order to prevent this problem, it should be done at 25-30.
Process After Eyebrow Transplantation
Eyebrow transplantation procedures are performed in a clinical setting. The procedure is carried out under the supervision of a specialist physician. Pinhead size crusting can be observed in the transplantation area for a week. However, these crusts fall off after a short time. Thus, it does not constitute an obstacle to the daily life of a person.
The person who has eyebrow transplantation should not stay under sunlight for two weeks. It is important to avoid places such as the sea and pool. In addition, the person is recommended not to do heavy sports.
After the eyebrow transplantation, eyebrows reappear after 3 months on average. They take the final shape within 7-8 months. After the transplantation, the shedding occurs after 15 days, as in hair transplantation. This shedding lasts for 3 months. At the end of this period, there is no shedding on the transplanted eyebrows.
In eyebrow transplantation, the hair follicles taken from the nape area grows in a short time. Patients are recommended to shorten them every 15 days. At the end of a year, eyebrows come out of the transplantation areas. Then, their growth rate slows down. Thus, the need for trimming by cutting is much reduced.
It is possible to have the most natural appearance with eyebrow transplantation. However, it is important to get service from the clinics which have enough experience.
