Eyebrow Hair Transplant in India
A perfectly arched pair of eyebrows adds to your personality and beauty. However, not all people who desire it have them. Implanting hair grafts on thin or missing eyebrows can help grow perfectly arched, symmetrical and dark eyebrows. In an eyebrow transplant, hair is taken directly from your head and thus it is permanent. The hair is taken from the nape of the neck and therefore, is fine in texture and caliber.
Another advantage of the procedure is that it only takes approximately 5 to 7 days to recover. Regrowth rates of the transplanted eyebrows are high. This is true whether the entire eyebrow or portions of the eyebrow are being restored. For those who desire to achieve greater density, they can go for a second procedure for their eyebrows
What are the Causes of Eyebrow Hair Loss?
The major causes of eyebrow hair loss are:
- Over-Plucking of eyebrows in Women
- Alopecia Areata
- Radiation and Chemotherapy
- Genetically thin Eyebrow
- Thyroid Disorders
What is the Surface Anatomy of Eyebrows?
Eyebrow hair is generally vertically leaning and they turn horizontal as they go lateral. Eyebrows are thicker and straighter in men and they are thinner, arched and higher in females. The hair density of eyebrows is usually stable but tattooing and plucking can change it.
Eyebrows occupy a central position on your face. They can literally make or break your looks. Perfectly shaped, dark eyebrows can add definitive attributes to your looks while they can also dampen a beautiful face if they are sparse. It is crucial to understand the angles at which the eyebrows grow. The transplant should also be done at that precise angle so as to provide natural-looking eyebrows. Surgical precision and skill are needed to reform the precise dimensions, arc and shape of the eyebrows
Who is an Ideal candidate for Eyebrow Hair Transplant?
To be a good candidate for eyebrow transplant you must have a good medical history so that the risk of complications is minimal for you. People who have lost their eyebrow hair because of genetic factors, over-plucking, or trauma are usually the best candidates for eyebrow hair transplant. Also, people who have experienced frontal fibrosing alopecia, alopecia areata or certain other conditions which resulted in the hair loss of eyebrows can also go for an eyebrow hair transplant.
A biopsy of the area is also needed to determine whether you are an ideal candidate for an eyebrow transplant or not.
Technique for Eyebrow Transplantation
The grafts for eyebrow transplantation are generally taken from the scalp, pubic region, legs or armpit. The scalp hair will be typically taken from the back of the neck or sides because of the soft texture. However, scalp hair grows much faster than eyebrow hair. Thus, after transplantation, they will be required to be trimmed quite often so as to keep them short. The best option for grafts is from your legs as the hair on your legs is thin and short. Other donor areas for eyebrow hair transplantation such as pubic hair or armpit hair can also work in case there are no other suitable donor sites available.
Usually, around 500 hair follicles are needed for eyebrow transplants. Also, it is quite essential to follow the direction and angle of the naturally occurring eyebrow during the implantation of hairs on the eyebrow skin.
Following are the techniques that are used for the hair transplant of eyebrows
Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
This technique was previously termed Follicular Unit Extraction and was published in 2002 by Dr. Bernstein and Dr. Rassman. This technique involves the extraction of individual follicular units (FU) or follicles from the donor area and implantation in the recipient area. It established the use of a small, circular punch which aided in the incision of the skin and separation of surrounding tissue from the graft. This technique gained popularity in the next few years after facing initial criticism like any other.
In the year 2018, the term ‘extraction’ was replaced by ‘excision’ in an attempt to emphasize the minimally yet invasive nature of the procedure and to avoid misleading patients.
Steps of FUE:
- Extraction of required follicular units or follicles from the donor area and placement in holding solution.
- Implantation of the grafts in the recipient area with the help of implanters or forceps.
Advantage of FUE over FUT:
- Avoidance of linear scar
- Faster healing time
- The technique of choice in decreased scalp laxity
Why is Eyebrow Hair Transplant Done?
Eyebrow hair transplant provides you with permanent and natural hair which does not need a lot of maintenance apart from occasional trimming and shaping of the eyebrows. For men's eyebrows, their transplant is more beneficial as they are not comfortable using cosmetic pencils to darken their eyebrows.
