How to do eyebrow transplantation?

Eyebrow transplantation is a much more sensitive but shorter operation compared to hair transplantation. Compared to the scalp, grafting in hair transplantation requires a micro-surgical procedure on the facial skin, which has a more precise structure. Eyebrow transplantation procedures are similar to hair transplantation. Operations using the FUE method are performed with hair follicles from the neck.

The hair follicles collected from the donor area by FUE method are planted in a predetermined area for an aesthetically formed eyebrow shape.

Because of the small number of grafts required for eyebrow transplantation, the operation time is short. Eyebrow transplantation operations can be completed in 1-2 hours. The patient can return home immediately after the procedure.
