Eyebrow loss occurs as a result of eyebrow removal from the same area for a long time, skin diseases such as pelade, permanent make-up, chemotherapy treatment, etc. Sometimes the brows grow back after the reason for the loss is eliminated. However, if this growth is not observed, eyebrow transplantation can be performed.
An eyebrow transplantation operation is the process of transplanting hair follicles collected from all donor areas, primarily the back of the head, to the area that has no eyebrows as a result of shedding.
The DHI method in eyebrow transplantation
Among hair root transplantations, the most diligence and care is demanded in eyebrow transplantation. It is important to obtain a natural and realistic appearance in eyebrow transplantation operations. To ensure this, the angle and direction of the grafts transplanted should be natural and the eyebrow line should be carefully designed. In eyebrow transplantation operations applied in Premium Esthetic Clinic, a DHI implanter is used for the transplantation technique.
The reason for the application of this technique is that it is more appropriate to use the DHI method, as the groove can be opened in the area where the eyebrows will be transplanted, as in the FUE method, and the transplantation process can damage the existing hair follicles.
The Stages of Eyebrow Transplantation Operations
The area to be transplanted and the eyebrow design are decided during the examination stage. At this stage, the doctor plans the procedure according to the patient’s facial features and their wishes.
First, hair follicles are collected from the donor area. Collecting hair follicles without shaving is preferred, which is generally applied to people with long hair. The small amount of grafts needed will enable this process to be performed easily.
The collection of unshaved hair follicles is usually done with hair follicles collected from the nape area by shaving a very small area that existing hair can cover.
Only single hair follicles should be collected when collecting hair follicles. Single strand hair follicles display an aesthetic appearance in the eyebrow area. In this procedure, local anesthesia is applied to the area to be used for hair collection.
Local anesthesia is applied to the area to be transplanted in eyebrow transplantation operations performed with the DHI technique. Hair follicles are transplanted with a Choi implanter at appropriate angles and directions.
On the day after the operation, dressing should be done to ensure that the transplanted hair follicles have taken hold in healthy skin and to prevent other medical complications.
Eyebrow transplantation takes approximately 2-3 hours since it is performed with a limited amount of hair follicles not exceeding 200-300 grafts.
The growth of transplanted eyebrows is similar to the hair transplantation process. It is possible to see the final result within 9-12 months after transplantation.0
