Eyebrow transplantation is applied to sparse eyebrows caused by a disease, drug use and internal / external factors. 
Since the transplantation is done in the line of the eyebrow and can be cut and shaped, a completely natural look is obtained after the procedure. Since the roots taken for transplantation are alive, it is common to see hair greying on the eyebrows. If the eyebrow transplantation carried out under local anaesthesia by FUE technique is not performed by experts, patients may experience problems such as eyebrow loss.

In the surgery, the surgeon moves hair follicles from the scalp to the eyebrows. It is a quite fast procedure but to see the full result, you should wait a couple of months.

In this procedure, the surgeon transfers hair by using scalp or hair grafts to replace the eyebrow hair. A scalp contains between two to fifteen pieces of hair. The surgeon usually removes the scalp from below your ears. People who have lost their eyebrow hair or want fuller eyebrows may consider an eyebrow transplant.
