Eyebrows are a very prominent and expressive feature of the face. People who have little or no eyebrow hair might want to change the appearance of their eyebrows. Having an eyebrow transplant will improve the appearance of your eyebrows and is commonly indicated for the following reasons:
– cosmetic – genetically sparse eyebrows, thinning/loss with age or as a result of over-plucking
– scarring from trauma, burns, or surgery
– alopecia areata (stable)
– loss of eyebrows due to hypothyroidism
Eyebrow transplant has become a popular procedure. Many have stated that the interest and trend for lusher brows are in direct correlation with the increase in celebrities who have decided to grow their eyebrows once more. There have been many eyebrow fashion trends. The ’80s were a time of thick, heavy eyebrows – think of Madonna or Richard Gere. But then the ’90s loomed and many created pencil-thin eyebrows upon their brows. But when it comes to eyebrows, the fuller look is currently the norm.
How does an eyebrow transplant work?
An eyebrow transplant procedure is similar to a hair transplant procedure. Hair grafts or hair follicles are harvested from a donor area which is usually the hair from the back and sides of the head. Both FUT and FUE harvesting techniques can be used. These hair follicles are then planted into the eyebrow area to anatomically and artistically recreate fuller and thicker eyebrows. Typically, between 50 and 375 individual hair grafts are transplanted above each eye. The graft count depends on the graft site’s size and how dense you’d prefer your brows. The 2-3 hour procedure is relatively painless. Patients only require a mild sedative and local anesthetic during the procedure. There is a short recovery period. After just one week, you should be able to return to your regular daily activities without any sign of having undergone surgery.
