Thinning or hair loss in the eyebrows can be caused by a number of factors, including: scars, injuries, burns, low natural hair density, irregular shape, drugs or a bad tattoo.
More men and women choose hair transplantation to improve their eyebrows, because it is currently the only effective method to restore hair growth in the eyebrow area. This technique has another advantage — the eyebrows do not need shaping after hair transplantation.
Eyebrow transplantation is a procedure where hair grafts are extracted from the donor site and transferred to the eyebrow area. The back of the head is the donor site. Follicles take root and develop to produce hair at the recipient site shortly after transplantation.
It is a very precise procedure where hairs are meticulously placed in microscopic punctures made at the right angle and positioned to mimic natural hair growth.
We can add thickness or change the shape of your eyebrows, or create natural eyebrows if you lack hair in that area. We use the FUE technique, an advanced procedure of harvesting individual follicular units. With the FUE hair transplantation technique, we add thickness to or reshape the eyebrows using the patient's own hair.
A form of hair transplantation, eyebrow transplantation uses an extraction technique to harvest hairs from the back of the head and transfer them to the eyebrow area.
It is a minimally invasive, totally safe surgical procedure with a very short rehabilitation period and no side effects. No scalpel or surgical suturing are needed because it is a microsurgical procedure.
Highly effective local anaesthesia helps prevent any pain during and after the procedure.
Performed under local anaesthesia the procedure generally lasts for 1 to 3 hours. The hairs are extracted from the back of the head. We use the cutting-edge technology that helps achieve natural eyebrow shape and very quick rehabilitation after surgery.
The number of hair grafts needed depends on the size of the recipient area. Around 60 to 120 hair follicles are required for partial eyebrow restoration, or about 360 hair follicles to completely restore eyebrow growth.
You will see hair growth 3 or 4 months following the surgery. The final result should be expected in around 12 months' time.
