Eyebrow Hair Restoration

Eyebrow hair restoration, also known as eyebrow transplantation or eyebrow hair transplant, is a surgical procedure that can restore and enhance the appearance of eyebrows.

Eyebrow hair restoration is typically performed on individuals who have thinning or missing eyebrows. This can result from a variety of causes such as over-plucking, age-related thinning, trauma, genetic factors, medical conditions, or certain medical treatments like chemotherapy.

During an eyebrow hair restoration procedure, hair follicles are extracted from the donor area; this is usually on the back of the scalp, where the hair quality matches the texture of the eyebrows. The follicles are carefully harvested using follicular unit extraction (FUE) techniques. The FUE technique for eyebrow transplants is advantageous as it allows for “cherry-picking” of the hair follicles.

 

After the hair follicles are harvested, Dr. Shah meticulously transplants them into the recipient area of the eyebrows. The placement of the grafts is critical to achieving natural-looking results that match the patient's facial features and desired eyebrow shape. Dr. Shah considers factors such as the angle, direction, density, and curvature of the existing eyebrows to create a balanced and aesthetically pleasing appearance.

Eyebrow hair restoration is performed under local anesthesia. The procedure can take many hours to complete, but the recovery period is relatively short and most patients are able to resume normal activities within a few days.

The transplanted hair may shed after the transplant procedure, but it will begin regrowing in a few months, providing permanent results.

Prior to an eyebrow hair restoration procedure, patients will meet Dr. Shah for a consultation to discuss treatment options and candidacy. Dr. Shah will provide personalized recommendations based on the patient’s treatment goals, and discuss any questions or concerns.

As with any surgical procedure, eyebrow hair restoration has potential risks and complications. These may include infection, scarring, bleeding, temporary numbness, or an allergic reaction to anesthesia. Our office will provide post-operative care instructions which are crucial to ensure proper healing and optimal results.
