Eyebrow Transplant

Eyebrow transplantation is one of the most aesthetically challenging procedures to perform, but when done by experts, can provide an impressive result. This procedure can be done by both the FUE or the FUG/strip technique, but most importantly requires the careful making of recipient sites for the hairs that will determine the direction and angulation of growth, as well as the aesthetic designing of what should be natural appearing eyebrows that complement the rest of the patient’s facial features.

Frequently Asked Question

Why Have An Eyebrow Transplantation?
There are other methods of making eyebrows appear fuller, such as with a tattoo or daily makeup application, but they have their drawbacks, one of which is that they are not natural solutions to your problem. As an eyebrow transplant takes the hair directly from your head, the hairs are permanent and can be done to appear as close as possible as to what the patient desires.

Eyebrow Transplantation Procedure?
One of the best aspects of an eyebrow transplantation is that the procedure to have it done is rather straightforward. Depending on the extent of what you want done, whether a small amount of restoration in order to cover a scar or a full restoration to thick eyebrows, the procedure can involve the transplanting of anywhere from 50 to as many as 400 grafts per eyebrow, with each graft containing typically one or two hairs. The first step is the designing of the eyebrows, done in conjunction with your feedback, with our doctor making sure the design is aesthetic and natural appearing. Most patients take some oral sedation, and once the anesthesia is injected.

Are You A Candidate for eyebrow transplant?
In general, most patients are appropriate candidates for the eyebrow transplant. Reasonable good medical condition is important to minimize the risk of complications. Patients who have lost their eyebrow hairs as a result of genetics, overplucking, or trauma are generally the best candidates. Those who have experienced alopecia areata, frontal fibrosing alopecia, or several other conditions that result in the loss of eyebrows may or may not be appropriate candidates, due to the risk of unreliable regrowth of the hairs.Your candidacy will be determined by our doctor who may recommend a biopsy of the area or dermatologist input. Realistic expectations are critical- the goal is to significantly improve the eyebrows and create the best possible result, but perfection is not typically realistic.

How long will the procedure last?
The length of this procedure partly depends on how many hairs are being transplanted. If it’s on the lower end, the transplantation should take two to three hours. If it’s on the higher end, then three to five hours is likely. The reason it takes this amount of time is due to the fact that each individual hair must be precisely placed onto the eyebrow.
