The difference between Eyebrow Transplantation and Hair Transplantation
Eyebrows are transplanted with the same techniques as hair transplantation, but there are subtle differences between them due to the difference in hair type, length, growth direction and number of hairs in the follicle. These differences are represented in the following points:
During hair transplantation, naturally growing follicles are used and each follicle contains 1-4 hairs, which is a sufficient number to achieve high density and natural hair shape. In eyebrow transplantation, the follicles used contain a hair, as is the case in the original hairs of the eyebrows. Each hole is transplanted with a hair.
Eyebrow hair grows at an acute flat angle so that it is close to the head, while head hair grows at a 45 degree angle to the head. Care should be taken when transplanting eyebrows and adjusting the angle of eyebrow growth from the follicle so that its appearance is natural.
The average age of eyebrow hair is about 4 months before the hair falls out, so its length is always short, while the hair life is about 7 years.
Considering that one session may not be enough to thicken the eyebrows to the required degree, many patients require two or more implant sessions.
