With the help of eyebrow transplant and restoration in the Bay Area, patients can have their thin or sparse eyebrows filled in naturally. Hairs are transplanted one by one from a donor area, which is usually the back of the head, to the eyebrow to address thinning or scarred eyebrows.
Eyebrow transplant and restoration is conducted in a manner that is comparable to hair transplants on the scalp. The procedure calls for an elevated level of artistic ability and experience in order to obtain aesthetically pleasing results.
Eyebrow transplant and restoration is a minimally invasive process and can be done as an outpatient procedure. A single day is all that is needed to complete it. It provides unnoticeable and long-lasting results.
Eyebrow Anatomy and Physiology
Eyebrow length, arch height, and thickness are all factors that can affect appearance. However, it is important to remember that there are also a number of other factors at play. Cultural background, gender, and the location and proportions of the other facial features can also contribute to brow aesthetics.
Generally, for women, the optimal eyebrow is above the superior orbital rim and thins laterally. The peak of its arch is in line with the lateral limbus of the eye.
For men, the optimal brow is typically more horizontal than arched. It is also generally thicker. Its placement is lower than that of the female brow.
Because everyone’s aesthetic needs and goals are different, we will work with you to create your ideal eyebrow.
Am I a Good Candidate for an Eyebrow Transplant?
An eyebrow transplant is an excellent option for both men and women who want to restore their eyebrows. You have the option of choosing between a complete or partial brow transplant in order to fill in sparse regions. The option you choose will depend on the severity of your hair loss, as well as your aesthetic goals.
What Happens During the Consultation?
Before performing eyebrow restoration, our team of experts will meet with you for a consultation. He will look over your medical history to ensure that there are no conditions that would prevent you from undergoing the treatment. Dr. Ronan will make certain that there are no underlying health concerns that could affect the results of the treatment.
Prior to the eyebrow transplant and restoration, the specific goal shape of your eyebrow will be determined and drawn in so that it may be replicated exactly. You will collaborate with our tem to achieve the ideal browline for your unique head shape and the characteristics of your face that have developed over time.
Eyebrow Transplant Techniques
In most cases, the eyebrow transplant and restoration procedure takes between three and five hours. This surgery is conducted in our private surgery center under local anesthetic in order to ensure that patients do not experience any pain or discomfort. Patients will not require a general anesthetic for this procedure.
Dr. Ronan will either use the strip harvesting or Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method to harvest the hair follicles for the eyebrow transplant and restoration. No matter which procedure is employed, the patient can expect Dr. Ronan to specifically choose fine hairs, because finer hair is more like real eyebrow hair.
In strip harvesting, also known as FUT or Follicular Unit Transplant, a thin strip of skin and hair is extracted from the back of the head and used for the eyebrow transplant and restoration. The excised area will be carefully stitched back together to reduce the chance of surgical marks.
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) requires tiny holes to be made around each hair follicle on the back of the head and remove them one by one. The hair follicles are then made ready to be moved. There are no incisions or stitches needed.
What Is the Recovery Process Following the Procedure?
Each patient’s recovery after an eyebrow transplant varies. Temporary edema (swelling) is common in this sensitive location. Some patients can suffer redness, puffiness, and swelling around their eyes for many days after surgery. Most people don’t find healing uncomfortable and can manage pain with OTC drugs as recommended by Dr. Ronan. Cold compresses reduce pain and edema.
Dr. Ronan will suggest waiting at least 24 hours before resuming normal activities. It will be necessary to avoid excessive exercise for one week to limit the risk of bleeding and harm to the donor and recipient sites. Patients can return to work the next day, but they may take a few days off if they experience redness or swelling around the eyes and scabbing of the grafted follicles.
Cosmetic Results of an Eyebrow Transplant
The transplanted hairs will begin to fall out within two or three weeks following eyebrow restoration. A few months after the treatment, new hair follicles will begin to grow.
Within six to nine months of surgery, the majority of patients have about 60% hair regrowth. Complete hair restoration takes between 12 and 18 months after the eyebrow transplant and restoration procedure.
The transplanted hairs will grow faster than natural eyebrow hairs because they will grow at the same pace as they did in the donor area. As a temporary fix, patients can trim their brow hairs to give them a more groomed look. Patients will feel better about their appearance as a result of this.
The Cost of Eyebrow Transplant and Restoration
The price of an eyebrow transplant and restoration procedure varies from person to person. Cost is determined by a variety of aspects, such as the required number of grafts, the size of the replacement area, and the desired thickness of the eyebrows.
