Eyebrow loss is usually seen as a result of constant waxing of areas of brow hair., skin conditions such as alopecia areata, permanent makeup, chemotherapy, etc. After eyebrow loss, there is a chance to push back. When a person experiences irreversible loss of their eyebrow follicles, he can opt for an eyebrow transplant.
Eyebrow transplant is the process of transplanting hair follicles that can be removed from any available donor area, mostly on the back of the head, in the area where the eyebrows have been damaged.
DHI method for eyebrow transplant
Eyebrow transplant is the most thorough and complex procedure among hair restoration procedures. During eyebrow transplant, it is important to obtain the natural and aesthetic result. This is why the angle and direction of the grafts should be natural and the eyebrow line should be carefully thought out.. At our clinic, Eyebrow transplant is performed using DHI hair transplant method.
The DHI method is used because it allows to perform the graft between existing hairs, unlike the FUE method.
Stages of eyebrow transplant
- Visiting the doctor and planning care. The area to be transplanted and the shape of the eyebrow will be determined during a physical examination.. At this stage, the doctor will make a surgical plan, taking into account the characteristics of the face and the individual needs of the patient.
- Harvesting of grafts. The unshaved method, generally applied to people with long hair, is a method also applicable to eyebrow transplant. The small amount of grafts makes this procedure easy to perform. Harvesting scions using the unshaven method only requires shaving a small area on the back of the head.. The shaving area where the grafts will be extracted will not be visible, because this area will be covered with existing hair. When removing hair follicles, only simple and fine hair should be harvested. Because only these simple hairs give an aesthetic appearance to the eyebrows.
- Transplantation of grafts using Choi implanters. Local anesthesia will be administered to the donor area prior to the extraction process.. During eyebrow transplant with the DHI method, the transplanted area will also be anesthetized by local anesthesia. With the Choi implant, hair follicles are transplanted taking into account the exact angle and direction of hair growth. In eyebrow transplant, the hair follicles are transplanted at a lower angle. This process is essential to achieve an aesthetic appearance..
- Postoperative dressing. A bandage should be applied the day after the procedure to make sure the hair follicles are attached to the skin tissue and to prevent further medical complications..
Since an average of 200 at 300 grafts are necessary for an eyebrow transplant, the procedure usually takes about 2 at 3 hours.
