Eyebrow Transplant In Turkey

Eyebrows, the short patches of hair above the eyes, play an important role in facial symmetry. They also help with the expression of our emotions.

In addition, they function to direct sweat/water away from the eyes while capturing dirt.

Because of different reasons, some people experience permanent eyebrow hair loss. Fortunately, they can undergo an eyebrow transplant to restore hair growth in that area.

What Is Eyebrow Transplant In Turkey?

An eyebrow hair transplant involves adding or restoring hair in the brow area to make them look fuller.

Different regions have different angles, directions, and densities of hair in eyebrows. The central area is thicker and broader than the brow’s tail; the hair in the middle part is projected above and to the sides.

While the hair is straight up right next to the glabella (the skin between the eyebrows), it grows increasingly lateral (sideways) as we move up and down the arch.

Moreover, the texture and colour of the donor area hair should match the eyebrow hair. Therefore, the surgeon needs to be precise to ensure natural-looking eyebrows.

According to the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), in 2020, eyebrow hair transplant was the third most popular hair restoration surgery among men and the second most popular among women. So, eyebrow transplants for men and women are available.

How To Transplant Eyebrows In Turkey?

For your eyebrow transplant in Turkey, a surgeon will likely use the Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) technique to harvest individual hair grafts from the back of the scalp. These follicular units will then be transplanted into the eyebrow area.

To make sure that the patient doesn’t feel any pain or discomfort during the eyebrow restoration, local anaesthesia is given during the procedure.

How Much Is Eyebrow Transplant In Turkey?

Eyebrow hair transplant cost in Turkey can be somewhere around £1,300 (~$1,500). This price may include:

  • Accommodation
  • Transfers
  • Surgery
  • Anaesthesia
  • Medications,
  • Aftercare. 

Compared to the eyebrow transplant prices in Turkey, the UK is almost 3-5 times more expensive. On average, a UK eyebrow transplant can cost around £4,000. 

Prices can vary depending on the location of the clinic or if you’re being charged by the number of grafts. About the latter, you should check whether your eyebrow transplant in Turkey price quote includes the number of grafts or the number of hairs (each graft can have 1-4 hairs).

Some clinics may charge based on hairs rather than grafts in order to justify their high prices. Longevita’s Turkey eyebrow transplant cost includes the maximum number of grafts for a fixed price. 

Keep in mind a cheaper eyebrow transplant cost in Turkey is possible due to the low cost of living and depreciation of the Turkish lira. It’s not because of poor quality healthcare.  

Many eyebrow transplantation operations are performed in Turkey each year. As a result of the large number of patients Turkish hair transplant surgeons receive, they are even more experienced than their UK counterparts. So, you can easily get the best eyebrows hair transplants in Turkey, provided you do your research.

Another factor reducing the eyebrow implant cost is the competition between clinics. Since there are so many of them, the eyebrow transplants in Turkey cost is further reduced.

What Is The Procedure For Eyebrow Hair Transplant In Turkey?

First and foremost, the surgeon draws the new eyebrow shape to address the aesthetic concerns of the patient.

They take the face shape into consideration so that the eyebrows sit naturally on the face.

After that, the surgeon shaves the donor area whose hair follicles have a similar texture to eyebrow hair.

Since few hair follicles are needed, the donor area is small. If you have long hair, it may seem that the eyebrow grafting has taken place without shaving any of the head.

Using the FUE method, the surgeon extracts the individual follicular units with a micro punch tool, after which they’re stored in a saline solution.

Then incisions are made in the eyebrow area to implant the new hair.

The surgeon will adjust the orientation and density of the follicular units across the different regions of the eyebrow.

The surgical time for an eyebrow hair transplant is 3-5 hours; it may be more or less depending on the desired aesthetic appearance of the eyebrows and the grafts needed for it.

Some patients may need over one surgical session to achieve their desired density.

Can I tweeze my eyebrows after the eyebrow hair transplant surgery?

You can tweeze your eyebrows but only 3 months after the surgery. That’s because you’ll start growing normal hair around this time (after shock loss).
