At Follicle HT, we offer eyebrow restoration, all our surgeons are board certified and fully trained in all aspects of facial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Eyebrows can be congenitally sparse, or can be affected by trauma, burns or scarring, or become thinned out from over-plucking. Follicular unit eyebrow transplantation requires experience and precision in order to create completely natural looking brows whose shape and contour complement the individual’s facial features and esthetics.
When obtaining hairs for eyebrow transplantation, we selectively harvest only one and two hair follicular units from areas that are inconspicuous. This allows our surgeons to work with a finer “paintbrush” in order to create refined brows with little or no cosmetic impact to the donor area.
Eyebrow transplantation is increasing in popularity and might be very effective solution to your facial hair restoration.
Eyebrow hair transplantation can be offered to men or women who either have congenitally sparse eyebrows, or gradual thinning of their eyebrows through years of tweezing or threading and have been left with depleted looking eyebrows.
Eyebrow hair transplantation is also offered to individuals who are transitioning from one gender to another and would like to affirm their gender identity.
Like all follicular unit transplantation, brow hair transplantation is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure, that typically takes from 5 to 8 hours in our fully accredited private clinic. During the procedure we use a follicular unit extraction technique (FUE) to improve brow location, contour and density. Donor hairs are individually grafted one at a time from healthy areas of the scalp. Once the grafts have been collected, very small recipient site incisions are made along the desired brow line. This is a technically and aesthetically demanding operation as we match the angle and curl of the current brow hair when placing the individual grafts into their recipient site.
We encourage you to take the next step and schedule an in-person or virtual consultation with one of our surgeons so that we can discuss the hair restoration treatment plan that is right for you.
Most patients report minimal discomfort and following what is generally a short period of recovery and healing, the transplanted brow will grow naturally and permanently. Though timelines may vary from patient to patient, the most common side effects are swelling and bruising around the eyes for up to 5 days after the procedure. Some patients experience a period of time where the transplanted hair falls out and regrows. Final results can usually be seen at 12 months. A fuller, more contoured brow shape can improve facial framing, accentuate the eye and leave our patients feeling more confident in their appearance.
The process is very similar to a hair transplant. The hair is taken from the back of your head and then planted to the desired area. It is a form of permanently restoring and or reshaping your eyebrows.
There are many things that will cause you to lose your eyebrows. Plucking them, hypothyroidism, alopecia areata, and aging.
5-7 hours is the normal time scale for eyebrow transplants.
The donor hair is taken from the back of the head. This is the hair that will promote the best chance of growth.
Local anesthetic is used to help with any discomfort. Pain medications and valium are called in to patients pharmacy prior to the procedure.
It is a very safe process to be done. There is no fear of any infection. A little bit of swelling might be there, but even that goes away in a few days. The process is painless, and the patient does not feel even slight discomfort.
