Eyebrows are a very characteristic side of the human face.

The natural and harmonic features of a face are the secret of human beauty, which is why every person looks for a beautiful and attractive face, free from defects. Eyebrows are considered one of those aesthetic signs of beauty in the human face, especially for women: any problem in them, such as lack of hair density or empty spots, gives them an unnatural view. This is the reason that brings that person to look for a quick and lasting solution to restore a normal appearance.

Eyebrow transplantation with Clinic Lus Fly is the final solution to this problem, which can occur in the form of lack of density or very thin or scar tissue, that leaves empty spots or even the total absence of eyebrows caused by genetic causes or other conditions.

Causes of eyebrow loss that require the transplant operation

  • - The most common cause of eyebrow hair loss in women is excessive extraction, which brings permanent damage to the hair follicle, that causes scarring and complete loss of hair growth.
  • - One reason for the loss of eyebrows is drawing on it with a pen, to give greater intensity and not to remove the effects of the colouring.
  • - Natural ageing is also another reason. People in their 50s and 60s start getting thinner hair, even in the eyebrow area.

While some patients prefer to undergo an eyebrow transplant to improve their facial features, others are looking for a missing eyebrow, caused by burns or medical treatments, such as radiation and chemotherapy.

For other people, the loss of eyebrow hair can have a genetic cause, or they want to undergo the transplant when the eyebrows are very thin, when there are empty spots or even where there is a complete absence of eyebrows. Eyebrow loss can also be associated with alopecia and other systemic diseases such as thyroid disorders. All these disorders and problems cause a partial or total loss of the eyebrows of the hair, which induce the person to think of a radical and final solution, which can be found at out Clinic Lus Fly in Turkey.

We must point out that it is not possible to recommend the process of eyebrow transplant only after having seen the situation by the competent medical team at our clinic in Istanbul.

Eyebrow features

There are several features of the eyebrows: the first characteristic is that the pores come out with an angle so acute that it grows flat on the surface of the skin. This is in contrast to the scalp hair, where the angle between the hair and the scalp is 45 degrees.

The second characteristic is that the hair of the eyebrows grow like individual strings, so each bulb contains only a hair; on the other hand, on the head bulbs can have 2, 3 or even 4 hairs each.

The third characteristic is that the hair of the eyebrows are very short cycle of growth. This means that eyebrow hair only grows in about four months before it rests and falls. In contrast, the hair of the scalp has a life cycle of 3 to 7 years, so that the hair can grow much longer.

There are two important points to consider when making eyebrows:

  1. Follow the trend of natural hair growth during transplantation to get a natural look, as the growth angle of the eyebrow hair is different from the growth angle of the scalp hair. This is an important point to get the hair natural look. 
  2. At the time of the transplant, we must choose the individual bulbs to use because, as we have said, the characteristic of the eyebrow hair is that each bulb gives a single hair and to ensure a successful eyebrow transplant, we must take this feature into consideration.

Here are the answers and explanations of the questions that might arise in your mind regarding eyebrow transplantation.
