The procedure requires the harvesting of hair from one area and transplanting these hair grafts to the brow area. The goal is that once this new hair grows, create a fuller and restored eyebrow.
The actual process is similar to a traditional hair transplant but typically, the hair graft for eyebrows is taken from the hairs above the ears. Not jus the individual hairs but the follicles gets transplanted too.
Advices before the procedure:
• Refrain from smoking for one week prior to and one week after
• your procedure.
• Stop taking Aspirin, Vitamin E, or any multivitamins.
• Avoid drinking alcohol.
• Do not over-expose yourself to the sun.
• Have a light breakfast, but no coffee or caffeinated beverages
• Bringing a family member (or friend) with you to drive you home.
General anesthesia will be administered. The surgeon then makes a small incision at the follicle of the donor site and as well as the site that the follicles will be transplanted to. The entire process may up to about 3 hours.
Brow transplant recovery can be relatively quick. There might be some scabbing around the brows within the first few days but do remember not to touch or pick them.
You would need to avoid vigorous exercises for about 3-4 weeks.
It is normal for the transplanted hairs can be expected to fall out after a few weeks but would begin to grow back.
Once the hairs begin to grow, you will be able to see fuller brow. However, in the meantime, your may need to trim the transplanted hairs to their desired length.
Final results will show in about 6 months to one year after surgery
• Poor aesthetic outcome.
