Have you had an eyebrow piercing? Or perhaps you have had your eyebrows plucked so much that they are not growing back. You may have naturally thin eyebrows or have scar marks on your eyebrows. The other possibility is that you have had a condition that caused you to lose your eyebrows. In all these cases, if you are not happy with the appearance of your eyebrows, you can get an eyebrow transplant!
Yes, eyebrow hair transplant is a thing. It abides by the same principle as scalp hair transplant. What to expect?
In an eyebrow hair transplant, your hair on the back of your scalp is extracted and transplanted to the recipient zones on your eyebrows. Because our body hair, scalp hair, eyebrows, and eyelashes grow at different rates, the transplanted hair will grow faster, and will require trimming and grooming, but it will look natural.
Both men and women are suitable for eyebrow restoration. The surgeons design the eyebrow transplant accordingly. The eyebrow transplantation works for congenitally causes eyebrow loss (no appearance of eyebrows at all), eyebrow loss due to accidents, trauma, burns, chemotherapy, radiation, autoimmune diseases, aging, and plucking on purpose or without intending to cause such thin eyebrows. If the angulation is proper, one can get wonderful looking eyebrows.
Most surgeon will take hair from the sides of your scalp to match your natural eyebrows. As in scalp hair transplants, the transplanted hair will fall out, and start growing back after the 3rd month of the eyebrow restoration. However, in the long run, they will grow back and look fuller.
Eyebrow transplant costs less than a scalp hair transplant. The scalp hair transplant requires more hair grafts but eyebrow transplant requires as much training, skill, and expertise if not more. The eyebrow transplant surgeon designs your eyebrows they will take into account that your eyebrows are a very important feature on your face.
