Why eyebrow transplant in Turkey? Eyebrows add remarkable beauty to your look, complement your eyes wonderfully and highlight your facial features.

What is an eyebrow transplant? 

Eyebrow transplant is a cosmetic procedure that restores hair eyebrows by extracting single follicular grafts from the back of the head, which is the best donor area, and transplanting them in the recipient area (the baldness site). 

Eyebrow transplant is performed under local anesthesia, using the DHI technique. DHI technique is an effective method that can open very tiny channels in the eyebrow area and implant the grafts accurately. It ensures natural eyebrows with ideal direction and angle.

How does eyebrow transplant work?

The eyebrow hair transplant goes through six steps:

  1. The first step: The doctor precisely shapes the brow to fit your eyes and facial appearance. Then, he defines the number of grafts required for implanting the eyebrow perfectly. 

  2. The second step: The doctor administers the medical tests to the patient, which includes blood and dermatology tests. 

  3. The third step: since the eyebrow transplant is based on the DHI technique, the doctor will shave or trim the back and the side of your scalp, preparing the patient for the follicles picking process.

  4. The fourth step: in this stage, the patient will receive local anesthesia, so he can feel comfortable while the doctor is picking the single follicular units from the donor area. 

  5. The fifth step: the doctor should be very careful during this stage, in which the follicles are picked from the donor area using a micromotor device.

  6. The sixth step: DHI is the best technique for eyebrow transplantation. It depends on the Choi pen that can open a tiny channel and implant the graft in it simultaneously.
