Eyebrow transplantation is a hair transplant, i.e. individual hair roots from which up to three hairs can later grow.
It is a surgical procedure. The body’s own hair is taken from densely overgrown areas such as the back of the head, also chest or beard in men, in order to use it in less overgrown places. Most often, it is the eyebrows that are affected by bald spots. There are many reasons for this, such as age-related hair loss, very frequent eyebrow plucking or a genetic predisposition, but scars can also be a reason.
The operation is performed under local anesthesia, so that the patients are conscious, but do not feel any pain. Our ophthalmologist first uses special instruments to remove individual follicle units from the collection area that has been anesthetized, then thoroughly examines each graft and preserves it in a special solution. Subsequently, each hair graft is inserted individually. Attention is paid to the placement and the natural direction of growth. This then achieves the most natural appearance possible.
The duration of the procedure depends on the patient.
Immediately after the operation, the transplanted hair roots begin to grow, but they fall out again about 2-3 weeks later. This is completely normal and can be observed in all patients. About 4 weeks after the procedure, the hair roots begin to grow individually again, some faster and some slower. About 8-10 months after the procedure you can examine the final result.
