What is Eyebrow Transplant? Can Eyebrows Be Transplanted?


August 18, 2023

Having an eyebrow transplant is absolutely possible, safe, and permanent! There are a couple of reasons why men and women want or need an eyebrow transplant. In the case of thinning, balding, or patchy brows, hair loss can be caused by the natural aging process, and in other cases eyebrow hair loss may be related to a medical condition like alopecia. A professional eyebrow transplant is the ideal long-term solution to restore lost eyebrow hair. 

There are also many people who want to thicken thin looking brows, or improve the overall shape of their eyebrows, in this case a cosmetic eyebrow transplant is a good choice for permanent results. 

Este Medical in Turkey provides eyebrow hair transplantation for women and men who want to improve the look of their brows and restore eyebrow hair regrowth. 

Can Eyebrows Be Transplanted?

Yes, brow hair can be transplanted. You might be surprised to know that an eyebrow hair transplant is very similar to a normal hair transplant. A facial hair FUE (follicular unit extraction) procedure restores hair growth by replacing old hair follicles with new hair follicles, making it possible to grow hair on your brows where there is none.

Here are common reasons for eyebrow hair loss:

  • Aging
  • Hormonal changes
  • Alopecia
  • Nutritional (e.g., zinc deficiency) 
  • Some medications (e.g., anticoagulants) 
  • Disease or illness
  • Skin trauma 
  • Chemotherapy
  • Thyroid disorder

What Is An Eyebrow Transplant? How Does It Work?  

As mentioned above, a brow hair transplant is like a regular FUE hair transplant. The same technology, follicular unit extraction, is used in both procedures to restore natural looking hair growth. 

During a surgical FUE eyebrow transplant a surgeon will use a delicate sapphire blade to open tiny incisions for suitable hair follicles to be harvested and then transplanted.    

In an eyebrow transplant, suitable hair follicles are taken from the donor site (a stable area of hair growth) on your body (the back or sides of your head) and are then transplanted to the brow area you wish to improve with new hair growth. If you are bald or balding, another donor site like your chest or arms may be able to provide suitable hair follicles for transplanting.     

Este Medical Turkey uses the Sapphire Hair Transplant technique. Using this method results in hair follicles being set in the most natural position for new hair growth. In just 5 months clients experience visible hair growth (on average 50% hair growth). And within one year most eyebrow transplant recipients will experience up to 100% hair growth. This brow hair treatment involves minimally invasive surgery with no downtime.

Here are commonly asked questions about eyebrow transplants. We hope to be able to answer all your questions, but if you still have questions about a Turkey eyebrow transplant, then book a Q&A consultation with Este Medical Group.  

Are Eyebrow Transplants Permanent? 

Yes, a brow hair transplant is a permanent cosmetic procedure. After a FUE transplant your eyebrows will be fuller, or longer, or more balanced, depending on how many hair grafts you had, and how your brow was reshaped during the surgery. An eyebrow transplant will permanently replace hair that has been lost. 

Do Eyebrow Transplants Keep Growing? 

Yes, healthy hair follicles when transplanted, and once settled, do grow hair — and keep growing! However, because transplanted eyebrow hair might come from hair on your scalp, periodic brow grooming and trimming may become necessary to keep the new hair growth at a suitable length for eyebrow hair. 

How Long Do Eyebrow Transplants Last? 

If your brow hair transplant is done at a professional and reputable hair loss clinic, like Este Medical Turkey, then your eyebrow transplant should last forever. Based on current data, a hair, beard, or eyebrow transplant performed by a skilled surgeon has nearly a 100% success rate. There are several factors that will ensure a high success rate of hair transplant — a key one being how well implanted hair grafts take root and thrive.

How Many Grafts Are Needed For Eyebrow Transplant? 

This number may vary depending on the final outcome you want to achieve. For instance, if you want to achieve a full, natural-looking set of eyebrows, then you may need anywhere from 150 and 350 hair grafts. If you are just filling in patchy areas of the brow, you may require fewer. It really depends on the size of your brow area and on your future grooming and beauty goals. The best way to determine how many eyebrow hair grafts you will need is to have an eyebrow FUE transplant consultation.  

Do Eyebrow Transplants Work?  

Yes, they do work! An eyebrow FUE hair transplant treatment has a high success rate, just like a regular FUE hair transplant. Eyebrow hair transplant post-surgery results are consistent with the follicular unit extraction technique. Este Medical in Turkey is the most sought-after hair transplant service provider in the world.
