If your eyebrows are going thin because you have weak hair or suffer from a medical condition that causes permanent hair loss, you’ve undoubtedly heard about eyebrow transplants in Turkey. The best Istanbul clinics, like Dr. Serkan Aygin, can restore your eyebrow’s natural look.

This article will discuss everything you must know about eyebrow transplant surgery before you schedule one. We will explain the requirements, break down the procedure, and tell you more about post-op care. Are you suitable for an eyebrow transplant? We will let you know.

What Is an Eyebrow Transplantation?

An eyebrow transplant is very similar to any other hair transplant procedure but is simpler and lasts shorter. Different clinics use different techniques for transplanting eyebrow hair. According to Dr. Serkan and his team, the best technique for this is DHI or Direct Hair Implantation.

Generally speaking, an eyebrow transplantation is a safe and routine procedure without much room for complications. When performed by a knowledgeable and experienced team like Dr. Serkan’s, this surgery is completely painless, leaves no scarring, and has a success rate of over 90%.

Who Needs an Eyebrow Transplant?

Patients ask for eyebrow transplants for various reasons. Both women and men who are dissatisfied with the appearance of their eyebrows seek surgery for cosmetic reasons. In terms of aesthetics, an eyebrow transplant provides a better-looking, life-long alternative to a microblading tattoo.

Many patients undergo an eyebrow transplantation surgery for medical reasons:

  • Any kind of trauma that triggers hair loss;
  • Madarosis from an autoimmune disorder;
  • Alopecia areata/frontal fibrosing alopecia;
  • Hypothyroidism (or underactive thyroid);
  • Hair-pulling disorder (trichotillomania);
  • Hair loss triggered by Hanson’s disease;
  • Acid and thermal burn on your eyebrows.

 

Every person older than 18 is eligible for an eyebrow hair transplantation procedure. However, young patients should consult a doctor beforehand to ensure their eyebrow hair loss isn’t temporary and examine the underlying medical issue that might require treatment.

Eyebrow Transplantation Step-by-Step

As mentioned, the award-winning hair transplant experts at the Dr. Serkan Aygin clinic recommend the DHI technique for eyebrow transplant procedures. DHI is an evolved variant of the FUE method, and it helps achieve superior results with less discomfort and scarring.

Because it’s crucial to understand the procedure before you sign up for the operation, we suggest you read the following step-by-step guide for an eyebrow hair transplant in Turkey.

Step 1: Inquiry and Consultation

Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic is an international medical center with many patients from outside of Turkey. No matter where you are from, you can call the clinic’s friendly and knowledgeable staff to make an inquiry and schedule a consultation with an eyebrow transplant surgeon. After hearing your needs and worries, the doctor will suggest a plan for the surgery, and you will be checked for allergies.

Step 2: Extraction from the Donor Area

The surgery is conducted in a modern and sanitary room. Every patient is administered local anesthesia to numb the eyebrow area and prevent pain. After that, the clinic takes grafts from the donor area (typically the back of the patient’s neck) using a specialized medical device called the Choi pen. New hair grafts are carefully transferred into a Petri dish one by one.

Step 3: Transplantation to the Recipient Area

In the second part of the surgery, the healthy hair grafts are implanted into microscopically tiny incisions in the recipient area. This part requires utmost precision, as well as skill and experience. The Dr. Serkan Aygin clinic implants grafts in the so-called herringbone pattern to ensure that the new hairs will grow along with existing hair under the right angle.

Step 4: Post-Op Care

At the end of the procedure, the doctor protects the grafts and the vulnerable brow area with bandages. Patients usually stay in the clinic for the remainder of the day and are dismissed when the doctor ensures there is no risk of complications. The medical staff instructs patients on at-home post-op care. They tell you how to wash your eyes and face, what facial expressions to avoid, etc.

Recovery: When Will You See the Results?

It takes 6 to 8 months for transplanted hair to grow, while the full results can be expected within a year. Many patients experience so-called shock loss after the first month of recovery when a lot of hair falls out to make room for new hair growth, but that’s a completely normal occurrence. After a hair transplant procedure, eyebrows get a fuller, lusher look. Since the hair from the donor area is different from the eyebrow hair, transplanted eyebrows tend to grow longer than usual. That shouldn’t cause you any inconvenience as long as you trim and shape your eyebrows regularly.

The Cost of Hair Transplant in Turkey vs US

One frequently asked question about eyebrow hair transplants in Turkey is how much the surgery costs. Patients who opt for the DHI eyebrow hair transplant will be charged around $3–$9 per graft. The number of hair grafts needed for an eyebrow hair transplant is typically 300–600. International patients undergo hair transplantation procedures in Turkey because Istanbul clinics, Dr. Serkan Aygin Clinic included, offer so-called all-inclusive packages that provide transfer, hotel stay, care products, translation services, and more for a better price than in the US.
