Eyebrow Hair Transplant

Eyebrows frame the face and can always make a huge difference in how we feel about ourselves. When it comes to wanting an eyebrow transplant there are many reasons why we might consider this, this includes overplucking, illness, trauma, scarring and genetics. In order to address the problem effectively and efficiently, the actual cause of your hair loss must be clarified. Extreme eyebrow loss dates to the ’90s and early ’00s, this era saw the bushy brow disappear, leaving many with damaged hair follicles that are no longer available to grow. Whereas other visit FUE clinics due to natural thinning or are affected by hereditary hair loss meaning their shape and size is affected. Eyebrow replacement surgery can give you a natural-looking healthy, full brow. The brow restoration process is a straightforward one, and it is often hard for other people to work out what has changed about your appearance, as the results are so subtle. With a micro-punch that is nearly the diameter of the follicular units, donor hair can be extracted without damaging neighbouring tissue or leaving visible scars.

What Are Eyebrow Transplants?

Eyebrow transplantation or implantation is the technique of extracting hair from donor regions on the head on relocation them in the areas of hair loss. The hair that will be extracted has to be similar in texture as the hairs of the natural eyebrows. Choosing a treatment such as a follicular unit extraction can extract hair and implant it in a way that leaves only the most minuscule of scars.

Eyebrow Transplants – What to Expect?

The eyebrow procedure is straightforward and requires no prolonged hospital stay and only a local anaesthetic, an eyebrow transplant is a relatively simple process. The surgeon will work with extreme accuracy and precision in order to achieve great results. On average between 250 and 400 individual hairs are required per eyebrow in order to obtain a natural, healthy-looking brow. Depending on the size and appearance of the current eyebrow as well as the look you are hoping to achieve, this actual number could vary. Each hair needs to be transplanted following the natural growth direction of the other hairs of the eyebrow, making sure that they lie flat against the skin. To achieve an even and full look to the eyebrow, the hairs also need to be placed very tightly together. To make sure that there is no scarring to both the head and the recipient’s eyebrow tiny needles are used to remove the donor hair follicles. Typically, donor hair follicles are removed from the area behind the ears. Small needles, just a few millimetres in diameter are then used to implant the hairs one at a time; this is a meticulous process. A local anaesthetic is administered before the procedure so that the patient is able to relax and in order to avoid discomfort. There is no need, however, to remain in the clinic following the transplant – the patient can return home to recover.

Eyebrow Transplant vs. Microblading

Weighing your options? If you’re looking for a long-term eyebrow boost, then you’ll no doubt want to consider microblading. Rather than implanting hair follicles, microblading uses permanent makeup to create the appearance of a fuller eyebrow. Although this treatment has grown in popularity over the past few years, it’s an age-old technique. With microblading, a specialist will insert pigments into the top layer of the skin using a hand-held tool with attached needles in order to fill in areas of the brow where the hair is thin or missing. The specialist will take great care to ensure that each hair is drawn on to mimic the look of real hair, with careful attention paid to dimension and shadowing. The primary difference between microblading and an eyebrow transplant is that microblading is semi-permanent, lasting only 6 to 18 months with proper aftercare. Microblading is also significantly more affordable than an eyebrow transplant. However, because microblading uses cosmetic tattoo pigments and transplants to use actual follicles, you’re more likely to achieve a more natural result with a transplant.

Frequently Asked Questions About Eyebrow Transplants

What are the Risks of Eyebrow Restoration?
Eyebrow transplantation is a very safe procedure. It is a surface procedure, meaning that no deep structures are penetrated. Given the very vascular nature of the scalp and brow area, infections are exceptionally rare. Some swelling may develop around the eyes for a day or two. There may be some pain or discomfort related to injections to numb the area, but the procedure itself is painless. After the procedure when the anaesthetic wears off, pain and discomfort are minimal.
How Long Does an Eyebrow Transplant Take?
Generally, eyebrow transplantation takes around 4 hours. Approximately half of this time is harvesting the follicles, and the other half is implanting the follicles. With larger grafting cases that exceed 500 follicles, it may take slightly more time.
Where are the Hairs taken from for an Eyebrow Transplant?
Generally, the hair for eyebrow transplantation is taken (harvested) from the back of the head or nape of the neck. This is referred to as the donor site. Hair here will have to be shaved prior to grafting. Shaving is performed in the office just prior to the procedure. Most women can easily cover up the shaved region with their hair if it is of adequate length.
How Much is an Eyebrow Transplant?
The average cost of eyebrow transplant will vary, this will depend on a number of factors, from the provider to the type of eyebrow transplant you require. Price should not be the determining factor when considering an eyebrow transplant, as a hair loss sufferer you’ll always have the goal of achieving the desired result, it will be the expertise and experience of the surgeon that will achieve this.

What is the Eyebrow Transplant Procedure?
An eyebrow transplant is very similar to a hair transplant, eyebrow hair grafts will be taken from the hairs above your ears, a surgeon will transfer the individual hairs and the hair follicles, this will help to make sure that new hairs are able to grow in your eyebrows once the initial transferred ones have fallen out. After you’re given a general anaesthetic, a surgeon will make a small incision at the follicle donor sites and also the sites of transplantation in your eyebrows.
What’s Involved in the Eyebrow Transplant Recovery Process?
The recovery process of an eyebrow transplant will involve a relatively quick period, you may experience scabbing around the brows within the first few days, it is important that you don’t pick at these. You may also need to avoid vigorous exercise for up to 3 weeks following your surgery. You may also notice the transplanted hairs fall out a few weeks after the procedure, there’s no need to worry though, this is completely normal, your new brow hair should start to grow over the next few months and in the meantime, you may need to trim the transplanted hairs to brow length.
What are the Side Effects of Eyebrow Transplants?
One potential risk of an eyebrow transplant is that the new hair follicles won’t take, in these cases, you may need to have a second eyebrow transplant. There are also some potential risks associated with the surgery itself, you can talk to your surgeon about the following potential complications including bleeding, nerve damage, swelling, bruising, infection and scarring. It’s important to note that these risks are minimal. Before your eyebrow transplant, the cosmetic surgeon will go over your medical history and be sure to disclose any underlying health conditions as well as any medications or supplements that you currently take.
What’s Involved in the Eyebrow Transplant Aftercare?
The eyebrow transplant aftercare after the surgery is done is much less intensive than that of hair transplantation, as the area of care is smaller and less painful. Though this is true, it doesn’t mean that proper aftercare should not be taken seriously, a surgeon will provide you with a personalised aftercare program that will cover the individual’s specific needs. The aftercare will consist of a four-day antibiotic treatment to ensure against infections and other medications can also be provided to help deal with the swelling and pain. Once the recovery process begins, you’ll start seeing a noticeable and more natural look after two to three months, this is when the hairs will start growing on their own.
What should I Expect from an Eyebrow Transplant?
Traditionally this is a remedy for thin or sparse eyebrows, those who rely on makeup products to ‘fill in’ their eyebrow hairs. It’s become more and more popular as a treatment and permanent solution for eyebrows. The eyebrow transplant will be performed by a cosmetic or plastic surgeon who will transfer your own hair to your eyebrows. Hair grafts, sometimes known as plugs, will be transferred to your brow area, this goal is that new hairs will grow from these grafts and produce a fuller look.
