Eyebrow Transplant Guide
The definition of beauty in the 21st century
The concept of beauty depends on so many factors. One of these crucial factors nowadays is the aesthetic taste of society and the public. Nowadays, celebrities and famous people are one of the factors, defining a framework for beauty. Therefore, most of the people attempt to make their appearance as much similar to their favorite superstars. On the other hand, plastic surgeons describe the meaning of facial beauty depending on every part of the face separately and the proportions of different parts in relation to each other.
The eyebrow is one of the beauty features in your face
One of the most important features of one’s beauty is their face and one of the most important features of one’s face is their eyebrows. Eyebrows are relatively more important to women than men. Women prefer to have stretched, thicker eyebrows; so that they can shape them to so many various models. As hair loss has been common not only in the head area but also in other parts of the body and face so that not all of the people can have stretched and thick eyebrows naturally. This problem has different reasons such as over-plucking, aging, nutritional deficiency in the body especially vitamin E and Zinc, immigration and a dramatic climate change due to that, continuous insomnia and sleep disorders, fundamental change in your diet, a sudden shock or other reasons. Thinning eyebrows do not have their primitive beauty and mostly women are involved with this problem.
Microblading or tattoo will return my beautiful eyebrows?
Most women suppose microblading or tattoo can return their primitive eyebrows back. But the fact is that tattoo and microblading not only will not return the original form of your eyebrows but also has several drawbacks such as giving an artificial appearance, existence of chemical dyes, limited models for eyebrows in a fixed pose, pain, and risks of doing these methods. It should be mentioned that tattooed or microbladed eyebrows could not be removed or go back to their primitive shape. Therefore, before applying any method, precisely do your research.
What is an eyebrow transplant?
One of the ways that lead to much more stretched and thicker eyebrows is “eyebrow transplant”. The eyebrow transplant regulations and procedures are the same as hair transplants, but the difference is that eyebrow transplant is a bit much more sensitive and needs its own precision and elegance. If we want to define “eyebrow transplant” we should say that this is a process, within which hair from near the ears (because this area has softer hair similar to your eyebrows) is donated and transplanted to the eyebrow area. As we said before, an eyebrow transplant is the same as a hair transplant; it means that after a couple of days, transplanted eyebrow hairs are expected to shed, in the following 3 months new hairs will start growing, and finally after 9 months the ultimate shape for eyebrows will appear.
Eyebrow transplant methods: FUE and FUT
Most eyebrow and hair transplant techniques used in Iran are FUT and FUE. As we said before, an eyebrow transplant in Iran is very similar to a hair transplant.
The first method that used to be applied for eyebrow transplant, was FUT, in which they removed a four-inch-wide slice of scalp from the back of your head or near your ears and then dissected all the hairs to graft in your eyebrows. This method because of surgery, pain, bleeding, stitches, and multiple sessions was abrogated after a short time and was not used in different countries for eyebrow transplants anymore. Nowadays, the most used method all around the world is FUE. In this method, there is no need for so many sessions, incisions, and stitches. Knowing the anatomy of the eyebrows, the desired shape could be designed and applied to them. One of the priorities of eyebrow transplant with the FUE method is a lack of swelling in the eyes or face which leads to a lack of recovery period. It should be mentioned that if you have tattooed or microbladed eyebrows, still you can apply the FUE eyebrow transplant method and this is another priority of the FUE method.
FUT and FUE eyebrow transplant, which one is better
- Using an ice bag in the transplanted area to reduce pain
- 24 hours of bed rest and avoiding sun exposure, just after the eyebrow transplant
- Keeping head upward to lower pressure on the body
- Resting with your head at a 45 degrees angle
- Avoiding makeup at least for 1 week after the procedure
- Taking medications and painkillers according to prescription
- Following the surgeon’s instructions to prevent infections and pains
Is eyebrow transplant safe?
Eyebrow transplant is normally a safe surgery if it is done in a trusted clinic by a qualified, experienced board-certified specialist and a compassionate team. However, individuals differ vastly in their physical reactions and healing abilities, and the results are never the same for two people or even predictable.
Hair and eyebrow transplant: popular cosmetic procedures in Iran
In the last decade, cosmetic surgery has become very popular in Iran. Rhinoplasty in Iran stands in the first place, as Tehran is named “The capital of rhinoplasty in the world”. Then come other surgeries such as liposuction, tummy tuck, blepharoplasty, dermal fillers especially lip fillers, breast surgeries, and facelift. Therefore, we have hair restoration (hair transplant), which has become in demand in the last decade. It is normal because most Iranian men have a male-bald pattern. In the last years, we see eyebrow transplant as the desired procedure. Unlike hair transplant that is more common among men, eyebrow transplant is mostly wanted by women.
Eyebrow transplant cost in Iran
Eyebrow transplant in Iran is the same as hair transplant in Iran and depends on the area of the hair loss, the applied method, the used materials and facilities, and also the clinic. Based on these factors the price could be from 500 to 1000 US dollars.
How can I choose a trusted center for eyebrow transplants in Iran?
As mentioned earlier, the eyebrow is one of the beautiful features in one’s face and so before doing any activity on your eyebrows, you need to do it through research. When you visit any clinic, you should ask for “before and after” photos. Moreover, you should ask for the experience and knowledge of their specialists and surgeons.
