Eyebrows Hair Transplant
Filling in the Blanks with Eyebrows Hair Transplant
Imagine a world where you don’t have to fill in your eyebrows with brow gel or tattoo them to give them a denser look? It exists, in the form of eyebrows transplant. This technique, which is not very new in the market, is not only for the ladies but for men as well, as experienced at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery clinic, which performs an average of 70 hair transplant procedures a month.
According to Dr. Cagatay Sezgin, celebrity hair transplant surgeon and one of the lead hair restoration surgeons in the Middle East, this trend is becoming quite popular considering having thicker and fuller eyebrows seems to be trending on social media platforms, in addition to a number of celebrities like actress Sofia Boutella, Cara Delevingne, Kaia Gerber, Lily Collins and Solange having a moment of bushy brows.
How Eyebrow Transplant is Done
Dr. Sezgin, who is also board certified by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS) notes that eyebrow and eyelash transplant is a very meticulous process, which uses hair grafts from one’s own scalp or body hair. “These grafts are then transplanted and implanted in-between your thinning eyebrows. The hair grafts chose for the procedure usually have a similar curvature to your original brows and lashes.”
Depending on the amount of hair loss experienced on a patient’s eyebrows, explains Dr. Sezgin, this creates a basis for the number of follicles to be used. “Sometimes it can be as little as 50 hair follicles, while at other times it can go as high as 100 follicles.”
The harvested and implanted hair grafts grow into permanent and healthy hair follicles, which end up giving your eyebrows a naturally dense and flawless look.
Dr. Sezgin uses Acell FUE hair transplant technique, which, according to him, is ideal for volume restoration, because, in addition to being minimally invasive, it allows faster healing and fast results. “Eyebrow transplant relies on this technique to ensure zero failure rates, meaning that 100% of the implanted micrografts are guaranteed to grow.”
Candidates for eyebrow transplants include those who have thinning eyebrows due to over-plucking, traction alopecia, Trichotillomania (pulling out hair), physical trauma, hereditary factors, and chemotherapy.
Recovery after an eyebrow transplant can take up to one week. “And since your new eyebrows have come from the hair on your scalp, they might grow longer than required, which means you might need to trim and curl them when necessary.”
