When people think about having a youthful appearance, they seldom think about their eyebrows. But they too are very expressive in providing the overall appearance to the person.
Eyebrow transplant is a process which came along as the desire of perfection and went out of hands. But with time, people realised that eyebrows play a crucial part in their face structure. Eyebrows do go thin as we grow older, but sometimes it can also happen because of other reasons like over plucking, shaving, scarring or even illness. This transplant shares only one similarity to beard/moustache transplant and that is the donor area behind your head, between the two ears. On an average, each eyebrow requires 250 to 400 individual hairs.
The recipient area will be orderly anaesthetized.
During this process only a single hair will be placed, any follicle units/grafts should be avoided.
For the proper alignment, the hair needs to be rotated first, so that there is no asymmetry in their direction.
All the hairs should be placed separately and need to be laid flat on the surface.
The hair being transplanted need to be accounted for the changes in the direction of the eyebrows.
To avoid any kind of infection, a disinfectant is evenly applied to your eyebrows after the procedure.
Eyebrow transplant is a safe procedure, without any complication. The alignment of hair direction should be according to the natural hair. This is a pain-free process just like any other hair transplant. Eyebrow transplant may require 2 to 3 sittings but not more than that. They need 250 to 400 hair strands for each eyebrow to achieve a full eyebrow; but if you are going for a partial graft with a shape, 100 - 200 hair strands are enough. Eyebrow transplant is also highly recommended to a cancer survivor who has gone through chemotherapy. The recovery time for this transplant is least as compared to other transplants. You can see your eyebrows looking all natural within 3 to 8 days, but as of the final result, you need to wait for at least one year. During this period, proper grooming is required. You need to trim your eyebrows at least once a week to avoid any misshaping and tweezing.
To obtain the thick and natural looking eyebrows, the average count of individual hairs required is 250 to 400 follicles per eyebrow; whereas, the partial eyebrow transplant requires around 100 – 200 hair follicles. As like other hair transplant procedures, the follicle count will determine the cost of your eyebrow restoration treatment, in which the size and appearance of the current eyebrow also play an important role. You should definitely opt for our skilled and qualified hair transplant surgeons at HBY, who are well known for offering the best prices of eyebrow restoration along with high-quality results.
It is the treatment with less risk involved and generally, it is considered safe because of minimally invasive tools and techniques involved in it. However, some of the patients with sensitive skin can experience a small amount of bruising and scabbing after eyebrow transplant, but only for a short period of time. There can also be the chances of minimal swelling on the face, and redness or inflammation on the transplanted area.
The recovery procedure for the eyebrow transplant is relatively fast and pain-free. The transplanted hairs will shed away within a couple of weeks, but don’t panic! It is the normal part of the recovery procedure. For the transplanted hair growth to be visible, you’ll need to wait for 3 - 4 months. Afterward, the hair will continue to grow. It will take approximately 8 – 10 months to see the full improvement in the shape and thickness of the eyebrow. Then, the transplanted hairs will keep on growing just like your existing hair and you need to trim them on a regular basis for proper shape.
