Big and bold brows are back!
Everywhere you look, more and more women are embracing their natural eyebrow shape and size. From bold and beautiful to dark and dramatic, eyebrows can significantly transform your facial appearance.
Unfortunately, the same can be said for thinning eyebrows. Sparse eyebrows are usually indicative of one or more of the following factors:
- Extensive tweezing
Regardless of why their eyebrows are thinning, many patients are interested in the options available for making their brows thicker and fuller again. While filling in eyebrows with makeup or getting them tattooed is an option, many people are looking for a solution that is permanent, but natural looking. In this case, eyebrow transplantation may be the perfect answer!
What is an Eyebrow Transplantation?
An eyebrow transplantation follows a similar process as general hair transplantation, where the surgeon removes healthy hair follicles from another part of the body and transfers them to the eyebrows. The procedure is safe, straightforward, and comes with a high rate of patient satisfaction. Eyebrow transplantation may use one of two methods:
- Strip Method: This procedure involves taking a strip of hair from another part of the body – often the head – and removing individual follicles from that strip. These individual pieces are added to the eyebrow based on your desired shape.
- Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE): This process uses technology to gently and quickly extract hair follicles from the back of the scalp. The device then implants the follicles in the eyebrow area using a predetermined shape.
Both processes are excellent for creating beautiful, naturally full eyebrows. Transplanted hair follicles will begin to grow around the 3-month mark, with final results showing within 9-12 months. Results from eyebrow transplantation are permanent.
Am I a Good Candidate?
Many patients wonder if they are a good candidate for eyebrow transplantation. People who see the most benefit from this procedure are those who have thin or no eyebrows. Patients with scaring around their eyebrow can also see excellent results from this procedure.
What Else Should I Know?
Eyebrow transplantation is typically done under a local anesthetic, which helps manage any discomfort. Patients should expect mild swelling and bruising, which usually only lasts 3-5 days.
Hairs transplanted to the eyebrow will grow long, so patients will need to routinely trim and groom their brows to keep them looking their best. However, this maintenance is considered to be much easier than having to draw them in daily.
