For a person with nicely dense eyebrows, getting eyebrow transplantation may seem odd. However, the appearance of your eyebrows may not be as thick as you would like either naturally or due to unavoidable incidents. If you would like to improve their appearance, an eyebrow implant would be the way to go.
Factors Contributing To Thinning Eyebrows
In the past, it was okay to have very fine eyebrows. However, prevailing trends are moving towards people having more fuller eyebrows. But you could also feel the need to get an eyebrow transplant due to the noticeable thinning of your eyebrows. The most common factors contributing to the need for eyebrow transplantation include:
Age - For some people, the older you get, the lighter your eyebrow coverage becomes.
Genetics - Your genes may determine the density of your eyebrows.
Diseases - If you're suffering from conditions such as hypothyroidism, it could lead to thinning of your eyebrow hair.
Trauma - Damage to the skin around the eyebrows may affect their growth. Trauma could be due to surgical procedures or accidents that leave scars.
Beauty treatments - Cosmetic procedures such as Microblading and Microfeathering could cause scarring or disfigurement around the eyebrow area.
Medical procedures - If you're undergoing treatment such as Chemotherapy, it could lead to eyebrow thinning or complete loss.
The Eyebrow Transplantation Process
Before the process begins, your surgeon will draw out the ideal shape of your eyebrows based on your facial structure and preference. That helps create a more natural look.
Our majority of specialists opt for the modern Micro FUE method. The surgeon will use a micromotor punch to individually remove hair follicles and their surrounding tissue from the donor area. Once the surgeon has the required number of hair follicles, they’ll move on to implanting the follicle units into the eyebrow area. They do this by making tiny incisions into the skin to place the donor hair units. The experienced surgeons who perform these procedures are well aware of the angle they place the implants so that they grow in the right direction.
Expectations After The Procedure
Eyebrow implantation typically occurs under oral sedation and local anaesthesia, making it a pain-free process. But after the procedure, your surgeon will prescribe medication such as antibiotics and painkillers to help with any discomfort. Any redness or inflammation around the donor and recipient areas should quickly subside, usually within one or two days. That leaves you free to go on with your life as usual.
You will start to notice some hair growth in about three or four months after the procedure. However, more noticeable hair growth will likely take place about six to eight months post-op. It’s important to note that you’ll need to trim your eyebrows every so often to maintain their appearance. That’s because the grafts come from your scalp. As such, they will also grow as long as the hair on your head.
