What Is An Eyebrow Transplant?
Eyebrows are one of the most defining characteristics of the face.
They aid in expression and are a huge contributing factor to our perception of beauty. The eyebrows play an important role in our facial appearance as thinning or loss of eyebrow may occur due to burns, repeated plucking, disease conditions, hormone imbalance or genetic defects.
Eyebrow transplants can offer a permenant solution to the problem.. We spend hundreds of dollars a year on eyebrow waxing, threading, and even pencils to make them appear more full and even, but often people don’t even realize the full impression that eyebrows make until they see a person without them.
With hair transplantation, it is now possible to restore natural-looking eyebrows that will last a lifetime. Here at Pure Hair Restoration Center, we are proud to offer eyebrow restoration services to help you achieve the look you desire by the most natural means possible.
During eyebrow transplant surgerys, your doctor keeps in mind the characteristic features of eyebrow hair growth:
Hair grafts are harvested from parts of the body (donor sites) where the hair closely matches that of the eyebrows. Since single-hair follicles are preferred, follicle units of 1-4 hairs may have to be dissected using a stereo-microscope to achieve this. These grafts are kept 2-3 mm long to allow curving to match the eyebrow pattern. The planned area for transplantation (recipient site) is then prepared by making incisions or slits with a fine-gauge needle at a very acute angle so as to orient the transplanted hair as flat as possible. The grafts in different parts of the eyebrow are oriented to conform to the natural eyebrow pattern.
The transplanted hair may have slightly different characteristics than eyebrow hair and you may need to trim your eyebrows occasionally but the growth rate will reduce over time.
