There are many reasons why men and women suffer from eyebrow loss or thinning, including certain systemic diseases, alopecia, infection, facial burn/trauma and aggressive grooming. Eyebrows are essential to your facial framework. In today’s world, the eyebrows are trending and are becoming one of the first things people notice about you.
This procedure is carried out similar to how it is performed on the scalp, which harvests your own healthy hair follicles and transplants them to your eyebrows. We gather the donor hair from the patient’s scalp area using scalpel-free FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) technique and transfer them to your eyebrows. Even if you have eyebrow tattoos, the transplanted eyebrow hair can be placed over the tatoo. To give you the most natural look through eyebrow transplant, we are very precise in the angle and orientation in which we place each and every eyebrow hair.
The procedure takes 4-7 hours to perform and is done completely under local anesthetic. We usually place between 200-400 grafts per eyebrow. We place the grafts in one eyebrow and then discuss it with the patient, and continue to modify until the patient is satisfied. We then do the same on the second eyebrow and then do back to the first eyebrow to modify again if necessary. It does not matter to us how much time it takes, we are not done until the patient is satisfied with the final result. For 4-5 days after the surgery there will be tiny crusts which appear like dots of sand on the skin, and then these fall off, leaving the eyebrows similar to the way they did before the surgery.
