HOW IS AN EYEBROW RESTORATION PERFORMED?
At Beverly Hills Hair Restoration our eyebrow restoration is typically performed using Follicular Unit Extraction. During this procedure, follicles are extracted using a tiny punch from back of the scalp. The transplant regions on the eyebrows are then prepared for the eyebrow restoration. Using tiny incisions along the eyebrows, we carefully control the angle, depth, and distribution of the grafts. By studying the surrounding growth pattern of the eyebrows, BHHR skilled surgeon creates eyebrow restoration results that are natural and effortless.
The actual procedure is similar to a traditional hair transplant. Eyebrow hair grafts are taken from hairs above your ears. A surgeon transfers not just the individual hairs, but the hair follicles, too. This helps to ensure that new hairs are able to grow in your eyebrows, once the initially transferred ones fall out. After you’re given a general anesthetic, a surgeon will make small incisions at the follicle donor sites, as well as at the sites of transplantation in your brows. The entire process takes about 2 to 3 hours.
PROS AND CONS
Proponents of eyebrow hair transplants note that the new hairs look natural because they’re your own. The procedure may also limit the need for brow makeup. Yet, there are possible downsides to eyebrow restoration. It can be costly. Also, it may take several months, until the new follicles to grow. There’s a chance the new follicles won’t produce new hairs.
What’s the recovery Like for an Eyebrow Restoration?
The eyebrow restoration recovery time is relatively quick. There will be some scabbing around the brows within the first few days – do not pick at these. Avoid vigorous exercise for up to 3 weeks after your surgery. You will start to see the transplanted hairs fall out after a few weeks. Your new brow hairs will start to grow over the next several months. You will need to trim the transplanted hairs to brow length.
