Eyebrow transplant

With the excellent eyebrow restoration from Dr. Özlem Biçer, your patients can notice a dramatic improvement in their facial appearance and symmetry after only a short break from work.

Eyebrows are an important element in the balance of your face. They frame your eyes and give expression to our emotional responses. Shaping, or plucking, eyebrows is an easy thing to thin out excessive volumes for those with thick eyebrows. The solution for people with thin or irregular eyebrows is not that simple.

The use of powder and eyebrow pencils never preserves the three-dimensional appearance of natural eyebrows. Not only does it just fill up with color, it also has to be constantly reapplied. Faced with this challenge, many men and women have found a simple and effective way in eyebrow transplant to permanently achieve the thick eyebrows they crave.

The eyebrow transplant is a procedure that involves transplanting hairs that are still growing into the eyebrows that are very thin, injured, or completely absent.

The lack of hair can be caused by:

Genetically
Trichotillomania, a self-harming behavior that also includes pulling hair out of the eyebrows
Systemic disease
Extreme plucking
Chemotherapy or radiation therapy
Skin injuries from piercings, burns or tattoos.
Some patients want full, thick eyebrows again, others want a subtle filling, while others want to cover up their scars.

 

Donor hair for eyebrow transplant

The donor hair comes from the scalp and, once transplanted into the eyebrows, will continue to grow for life and should therefore normally be trimmed once a month.

To achieve a natural look, the hair is transplanted once and sometimes twice, just as eyebrow hair grows naturally.

This is a very precise procedure that requires the hair to be perfectly placed at right angles and in small cuttings to mimic natural growth.

The use of all microscopically prepared grafts enables them to be placed in the smallest possible incisions.

These grafts are based on Dr. Özlem Biçer on one of two techniques with which she has many years of experience: FUE (“Follicular Unit Extraction”), in which one graft after the other is removed, and FUT (“Follicular Unit Transplantation”), in which the grafts are placed under the Microscope can be separated from a single donor “strip” at the back of the head.

FUT is mainly used in women, while men who want to shave their head or want to be sure that there is no linear scar, the FUE technique is preferred.

Procedure and results

The process takes between 3 and 5 hours, depending on the number of follicles needed to form the desired fullness and shape.

An eyebrow operation begins with the removal of healthy hair follicles from the back of the head. This region is used because these roots have genetic programming that ensures lifelong growth. Also, the removal at the back of the head is less noticeable, especially for those who wear their hair medium to long.

The scalp is shaved in the area from which the hair is to be removed and then a small strip of tissue is removed using FUT or each graft is removed one at a time using the FUE technique. A local anesthetic is used to avoid pain during collection. Once the incision is closed, it is almost invisible and will heal quickly within a few days.

At the Dr. Özlem Biçer, depending on the amount of hair available and the desired size and density, 250 to 750 hairs are placed in each eyebrow.

During the follicle preparation for an eyebrow transplant, Dr. Özlem Biçer patients are served lunch in one of the region’s excellent restaurants. This break is necessary for the careful preparation of the hair follicles for the graft. Each follicle should be isolated very carefully to ensure that it is “accepted” when implanted.

Once this is done, the actual transplant process will begin. Previously, the patients had Dr. Özlem Biçer showed what they wanted to achieve with the help of photos. This shape is drawn in the eyebrow area so patients can confirm that the size, shape, and position look exactly as planned.

Once the follicles are prepared, the patient is taken to the treatment room where a local anesthetic is given. Dr. Özlem Biçer
