Eyebrows Transplantation- Get the real YOU back
Besides their function as a protector to our eyes from dust and sweating, our eyebrows play the most prominent role of making the face stand out as well as accentuating communication with others. According to a study conducted at University of Lethbridge in Canada, eyebrows are more important than eyes at shaping the human face. Accordingly, as they start to experience the problem of thinning eyebrows, people usually start to panic especially when they look at the mirror and notice how different they look than who they really are. Fortunately, today the solution to thinning or completely lost eyebrows has become easier than ever before with the real-life solution of hair transplant that guarantees your appearance back with fully restored eyebrows.
How could someone lose his/her eyebrows?
Besides the congenital reasons, eyebrows could be lost due to many causes like:
• Side effects of some types of medications.
• Fatigue and stress.
• Over plucking to reshape eyebrows.
• Obsessive self-inflicted plucking, known as “trichotillomania”.
• Physical injuries such as car-accidents and burns.
• Medical or surgical treatments that lead to the loss of eyebrows—e.g. radiation therapy and chemotherapy.
What is eyebrow restoration surgery?
A procedure that indicates moving hair from the scalp to the thin or bald areas of eyebrows.
Pre- Eyebrow Restoration Procedure
Just like any other cosmetic surgery, eyebrow restoration procedure goes through certain stages so that the expected results are met.
One of the critical stages that comes prior to the procedure itself is the preparation stage in which you and your doctor have a deep conversation regarding your expectations and desired results. For these to be met, your surgeon will have to decide on which procedure is better for your case. Before that your doctor will need to exactly evaluate the cause behind losing your eyebrows in order to figure out if it could be a barrier to meeting the results of the procedure—e.g., in case of local or systematic disease, it must be under control to ensure success.
Performing Eyebrow Restoration Procedure
Eyebrow restoration is applied with two main techniques. The first one known as FUT includes removing a strip of the scalp hair (donor area) with its subcutaneous tissues, and then planting these hairs in the affected areas of the eyebrows (receiving areas). The second technique however is known as FUE, which is considered as the state of art of hair restoration and the best technique which proved better results than the outdated FUT. With the FUE technique, the surgeon will remove hair follicles one by one from the donor area, and plant them with the same manner at the receiving area. In either way, the surgeon will always extract hair with best texture and orientation to serve as eyebrow hair. Finally, this exact procedure will be applied in one or more sessions based on the person’s expectations and required density.
