Eyebrow - Understaning The Cause
Apart from the obvious medical conditions related to thinning Eyebrows, another major cause of thinning eyebrows is over-plucking. In most cases the style at the time dictated that slim eyebrows were deemed more attractive and as such many patients have plucked out too many hairs and as a result there are no longer enough hairs remaining to provide the full growth that is now more popular.
Eyebrow repair using hair transplant surgery can often be completed in one session but making the result look natural requires a great deal of care. This is because eyebrow hairs do not all sit in the same direction. Some have an upwards direction, they then turn on a more horizontal direction. This forms a natural shape.
Eyebrow Transplant - The Solution
At Elite Hair Restoration we transplant individual hairs taken from the scalp into the eyebrow line. However we insert hair follicles at specific angles to ensure that, overall, the natural eyebrow pattern and shape is preserved.
We take into account both the direction of hair growth and the angle of the hair as it grows away from the skin.This attention to detail is required to obtain a natural finish that should be unnoticeable and as such will enhance the face.
We always inform patients before the procedure that hair from the scalp grows more quickly than the eyebrow, so they will have to trim their eyebrows each week or two on an ongoing basis.
It is always your own hair follicles that will be used in eyebrow transplantation.
First, a donor area is selected from your head as in the hair transplantation operation. This is the area which is on the neck, at ear level and on the back of your head, where no hair has been shed. The surgeon is careful when selecting the donor area, whether there are enough hair follicles in that area is looked for.
Since eyebrow transplantation will not require much, the number of hair follicles will be sufficient in any case.
Then, the hair follicles are collected from this area. These follicles are used where your eyebrows are shed. They are planted in your eyebrows by opening channels with appropriate angles. At this point, the experience and professionalism of the surgeon are important. The more successful the transplantation is, the more natural your new eyebrows appear.
After that, your doctor will tell you about the issues you need to pay special attention to. If given instructions are followed, eyebrow transplantation operation is a very successful and reliable operation.
