We perform eyebrow restoration at our Los Angeles hair restoration clinic for both men and women looking to achieve more density in the area. For men, the loss of eyebrow hairs is typically hereditary, while for women it’s usually a result of “over-plucking” of the brows or sometimes is even due to hormonal imbalances. The procedure is intended to permanently restore the eyebrows by transplanting the patient’s own hair from the donor area to the brow area. What is great about the procedure is that it is minimally invasive and typically only requires one session that lasts no more than about 2-3 hours – patients can typically go back to their normal routine within a couple days, depending on the patient. Recovery from the procedure is speedy – you can usually do the procedure on a Thursday or Friday and be back to work the following Monday.
Why We Lose Our Eyebrows
There are many reasons why people begin to notice thinning in the eyebrow area. Sometimes, it can simply be due to overplucking of the eyebrows. When the hair is pulled out at the root, it takes longer to grow back. And if the hair is constantly being pulled out at the root, this can cause the hairs to grow back finer, thinner or stop growing back over time. Another cause of eyebrow hair loss can be from certain medications such as birth control pills (which alter hormones in the body). Other medications that cause this are seizure medications, aspirin, blood thinners and chemotherapy treatments. When you visit our clinic for your complimentary consultation, the doctor will first determine what is causing the eyebrow hair loss to determine if you are a candidate for eyebrow restoration.
For eyebrow restoration, patients have a procedure that ranges from 50 to as many as 350 grafts per side- however, as many as 375 grafts can be transplanted into a single eyebrow. We precisely transplant the hairs in directions of the natural growth pattern of the eyebrow so the hair transplant is undetectable – and achieves the most natural results.
Hair grafting and eyebrow restoration are two milestones achieved in the hair restoration procedure through technical advancements. Every minuscule detail in our body has a purpose which might be from the point of functionality or aesthetically. Similarly, eyebrows too apart from serving the purpose of protecting the eyes help in restoring facial aesthetics. Eyebrow restoration procedures effectively restore density or normal anatomy, for both cosmetic and reconstructive purposes.
