Eyebrows occupy a very visible location on one’s face and are critical to the appearance of the eye area. They frame the eye and serve as an important aesthetic landmark between the eye and the frontal scalp hairline. Significant loss or changes in eyebrow hair density are usually very noticeable and can be quite troubling. While eyebrow shapes and styles change over the years, thin or sparse eyebrows are not usually aesthetically desirable.
Hair transplants to the eyebrows can be done for both men and women. While most commonly done for eyebrows lost due to injury (lacerations, avulsions, burns), disease (alopecia areata, trichilomania), or age (thinning of the hair) it may also be done for cosmetic enhancement (thickening of the eyebrow and/or extension of the tail) as well. Thin eyebrows in women occur from a congenital thinness and limited ability for the eyebrows to grow or loss of eyebrow hairs due to excessive plucking.
Tattooing of the lost or thin eyebrow is a very common technique that is simple and quick to do with an immediate result. Unfortunately, eyebrow tattoos often look very unnatural with less than ideal color matches. Over time the tattoo often fades, turning into a blue-black color which is an even poorer color match. Eyebrow tattoos are not easily removed and I usually advise against it. It is better to do hair transplants right into the tattooed skin.
Hair transplantation to the eyebrow is a more refined technique of that used in scalp hair grafting. It is based on two important principles; individual follicular grafts and precise placement into the unique shape and orientation of eyebrow hairs. While the eyebrow area is not big (compared to the scalp), the harvesting and placement of individual follicles into the eyebrow is a meticulous procedure that can take almost as long as scalp hair transplant sessions.
Placement and proper angulation of the hairs is the key to a good, natural-looking eyebrow transplant. The eyebrow has hairs that have unique orientations in different parts of the eyebrow. The hair in the upper part of the middle of the eyebrow points upward to the hairline, while the hair on the tail will usually point towards the ears. The eyebrow hairs are also oriented much like a feather with the upper part of the eyebrow pointed slightly downward and the lower portion slightly upward forming a slight ridge.
Eyebrow hair transplantation may require more than one session of grafting to get the best results. Not all follicles completely survive each grafting session and optimal density of the eyebrow may require a second set of grafts. My goal is to get the best result in one session, not two, but hair transplant growth and density is not completely predictable. Second graft sessions are not done for one year after the first to give optimal time for the hair to grow and for the patient to adjust to the changes in the appearance of the eyebrow.
The hair used for eyebrow transplants comes from the scalp. Because most scalp hairs are more coarse than fine eyebrow hairs, the donor site is usually taken from the scalp hair right behind the ear. Scalp hair in this area is thinner and a better match for the eyebrows. Each eyebrow usually requires about 50 to 75 hair transplants, sometimes up to more than 100 per eyebrow depending upon the goals of the patient. These hair transplants, like the rest of the scalp, will continue to grow for the rest of your life and will need to be trimmed regularly. Over time, the transplanted scalp hairs will take on some of the characteristics of eyebrow hairs and growth will slow down. (eyebrow hair grow is about half that of scalp hairs)
As an excellent hair transplant procedure to the scalp can frame an aged-appearing face, strong eyebrows can frame an eye to make it look more attractive and rejuvenated. Eyebrow hair transplants have begun to come into vogue now that techniques and refinements have continued to create better and better results that are seamlessly natural and easy to care for. In this article we will explore some basic ideas of eyebrow hair transplantation including the pros, cons and limitations.
Before a surgical treatment can be undertaken for the eyebrows, it is important to understand what may cause hair loss in the eyebrow region that may preclude or prevent transplantation there. One of the most common reasons for need of eyebrow transplantation is overplucking an eyebrow, especially by a female, with the hair never growing back. Fortunately, this is one of the most favorable conditions for eyebrow hair transplantation with typically excellent results.
However, diseases such as alopecia areata, which is a type of autoimmune-based (or at least that is what is speculated) hair loss is not a good condition since hair graft survival is variable and reactivation of disease may lead to loss of the transplanted grafts over time. Other conditions such as a low thyroid level can predispose toward loss of hair in the outer third of the eyebrow and may be reversible with medical therapy alone. Therefore, if this pattern is observed, it may be wise to start with a laboratory workup.
Eyebrow hair transplant involves taking the finest one-hair grafts from the back of the head, typically near the neck area or in the temple where they are finer through a very short incision of a few centimeters, and then dissecting them into individual grafts for transplantation. The sites that will hold the new hairs are created in a shape that resembles a natural eyebrow. Typically, the macro shape is such that there is a thicker club in the portion near the nose tapering to a gentle arc near the outer temple.
In the old days, the peak was placed near the lateral limbus (the outer part of the iris) but today the height of the peak of the brow is centered a bit farther out somewhere between the lateral limbus and the lateral canthus (where the upper and lower eyelids join.) The brow then tapers downward a bit from there. For men the brows can be thicker and longer with a less defined peak and taper, although it still does taper toward the outside. The eyebrow hairs themselves must be oriented to match a natural eyebrow: toward the inside the club shape fans in an arc and then moves toward the temple by resembling a fishtail shape or some call it cascading dominoes. These angles must be extremely flat to look natural. Using “coronal” sites in which the blade is angled parallel with the skin surface rather than perpendicular can help accomplish this task.
Many men experience baldness and have hair transplanted to cover it up. Even women experience baldness and is frequently advertised for transplant offices. But one type of transplant surgery is meant for transplanting eyebrow hair. But this type of transplant differs greatly from others.
Due to how important eyebrow hair is to forming the human face, this surgery is really essential. Everyone knows that many men experience balding on their scalps. But many do not see women losing their hair in the same manner. But many people will be disturbed by the fact someone has no eyebrows. Everyone expects to see eyebrows on any face they see.
A lot of people lose their eyebrow hair as they age and will have the transplant surgery. There are also disease of the thyroids and many others that will cause the loss of this hair. Eyebrow loss can also stem from alopecia. Many people may find themselves suffering from too much plucking as well. Many tattoos, burns and other infections can cause eyebrow hair to fall from their faces. There are also people who simply are unable to grow eyebrow hair.
But the surgery for translating eyebrow hair is much different than normal hair. The fact is that each part of the eyebrow can have hair growing in a different direction. Eyebrow hair grows in sharp angles so that it lays flat against the face. The hair on the scalp does not have such a harsh angle. Hairs on your eyebrows do not grow exactly the same as the ones on your scalp. Instead of groups of four there is only a single hair in this case. You are able to see this through looking in the mirror. The method of transplanting hair needs to consider this.
When the surgeon goes to preform the transplant, they have to be very careful to insert the hairs to point the right way so it grows in the natural direction. To do this incredibly fine tipped needles are used to do this. This is also what they use to ensure the hair is laying flat. Due to the fact that an eyebrow hair does not come in groups they have to forge individual hairs. For this to happen it is necessary to remove hair from the scalp much like normal transplants and then break up the hair bundles to form the single hairs.
The eyebrow hair transplant is a surgical procedure which has been proven to be very effective. Eyebrow transplant is a minor operation that can be accomplished in less than an hour. The surgeon can utilize different methods to transfer the hair strands. This would depend on the condition of the patient. The doctor should assess the problem causing the loss of eyebrow. The solution should address the cause of the hair loss and provide long term results. Surgeons should conduct tests to confirm if the hair transplant would remain viable after the procedure. If not, other methods can be used.
The eyebrow of the patient should be restored since it has an important use. It serves as a barrier that prevents sweat from the forehead to reach the eyes. It also blocks entry of dust particles and other items.
The eyebrow hair transplant is done by transferring a layer of the skin with hair strands already embedded. The skin has been processed in the laboratory using the epidermal cells of the patient. The hair cells from the other parts of the body are also replicated. The hair follicles from the scalp, arms or torso are deeply embedded on the skin generated.
The processed layer of skin with hair follicles is placed on the eyebrow area. The surgeon would have to remove the hairless epidermal area in order to connect the processed skin. The hair would naturally connect to the deeper dermis layer. In less than a week, the eyebrow transplant would feel natural and secure.
The best way to deal with eyebrow deterioration is through surgery. The procedure is fast and simple since the eyebrow area is small. The surgeons can finish the operation in a matter of hours. There are different ways to transfer eyebrows. Consumers should evaluate which method would be the most effective to deal with their situation.
The eyebrow plays an important part to our face. It protects the eyes from any foreign objects that could fall them in. These days we do not need as much protection from our environment so people are very happy to do work to alter the style of the brow.
The eyebrow area can be tweezered or plucked into whatever style you desire. We can see how fashions have changed throughout the 20th Century. During the 1920s it was de rigueur to have eyebrows that were pencil thin. Those styles can be seen in the old black and white movies of the time. Take a look at the silent movie star actresses for examples of extremely thin brows.
Recently eyebrows have come full circle. The style is now to have a brow that is quite full but really contoured.
If you are lucky, you will have a full set of eyebrows that you can shape into your desired style. If you are not so fortunate, there is help at hand. You can get work done to give you the look you want.
- Choose an eyebrow tattoo
- Choose an eyebrow hair transplant
If you decide to get an eyebrow tattoo you can get the work done within one easy session.
If you opt for an eyebrow hair transplant you could get a procedure that will replace the hair to your brow by having an eyebrow hair implant done.
The pulses of laser light would feel like tiny bands of rubber snapping against your skin. Most people would not find this painful, but, the threshold for pain is unique to everyone. Doctors usually let the patients apply anti-inflammatory and anesthetic creams prior to the procedure. If you are the type to feel pain easily, your doctor might prescribe a local anesthetic.
The number of sessions would vary depending on the tattoo or birthmark, from one to ten sessions every four to eight weeks. The succeeding sessions would pierce deeper, resulting in the tattoo or birthmark lightening progressively after each session.
After the procedure, your doctor would bandage your skin and apply anti-bacterial ointment, with instructions to raise the treated area to avoid swelling. You will also be instructed to keep the treated area away from the sun because it is going to be extra receptive to UV rays. A slight sunburn feeling and localized redness are reported by some people after the procedure. Sometimes a scab would develop in the area but this will subside after two weeks. Anti-inflammatories reduce any pain but you must consult with your doctor and not self-medicate.
The Eyebrow Hair Transplant operation can take about 1 to 8 hours, depending on the complexity of the operation. Recovery lasts up to 4 weeks after 1 to 3 days at the clinic after surgery.
