About Eyebrow Transplantation
Eyebrows are features that we may take for granted. Though the eyes are the windows to the soul, our eyebrows help us to display our emotions and express feelings externally. There can be various reasons for hair loss or thinning within the eyebrows and at American Mane Hair Restoration Center, we are proud to offer eyebrow transplantation.
What is eyebrow transplantation?
In our office, we use the DHI technique to complete eyebrow transplantations. Similar to a standard DHI transplant, hair follicles are extracted from your head and immediately inserted into an implanter pen, and implanted into the designated area along and within your eyebrows. The DHI method is preferred over FUE for eyebrows since the implanter pen allows for more creative ability when implanting allowing for natural-looking results.
Different Stages of DHI Eyebrow Transplantation
The next part of the process is the graft extraction process. Before the surgeon performs this part of the procedure, you will be given a local anesthetic into your head’s donor areas.
Following the extraction process, it’s the actual transplantation of the hairs. For this, we use a local anesthetic on the recipient area. As is the case with other hair transplantation procedures, Choi implanter pens transplant the hair follicles and make the required incisions simultaneously.
Results and recovery
The recovery process for eyebrow transplantation can be more involved than other parts of the body. Following your procedure, a dressing is applied to anchor your hair follicles to your skin to ensure they don’t shift or fall out prematurely. Your eyebrows can be very expressive and move frequently so the dressing helps to ensure successful results. Your surgeon will inform you about post-procedure care and when you will be able to remove the dressing.
Patients should avoid intense friction and trimming their eyebrows for at least a month. Significant results can be noticed within the first six months, with full results expected to appear 12 months following your procedure.
