Eyebrow Transplantation

Hair restoration surgery uses your own hair to improve the brow shape, contour or restore density to areas of thinning brow.

Candidates for Eyebrow Transplantation
You may be a candidate for Eyebrow Transplantation if you are concerned about the appearance of your brows related to the shape, size, or thinning of the existing brow hairs or due to a scar which has caused hair loss at the site of injury.
Hair replacement candidates must have healthy hair growth at the back and sides of the head to serve as donor areas. Donor areas are the places on the head from which grafts are taken.

Eyebrow Transplantation Surgery
Eyebrow Transplantation surgery using microfollicular grafting involves a team approach and is usually undertaken in the office setting. Donor hair is typically taken as individual follicular grafts from the back of the head. A few to several hundred grafts may be needed. These grafts are then inserted into tiny 'recipient sites' in the eyebrow area, and must be placed in such a way that hair all grows in the same, natural direction. Hair follicles are transplanted to recipient sites in the same manner that hairs grow naturally. In other words, the natural grouping of hairs into follicular units is preserved. Individual follicular units are transplanted separately to restore the hairline or density to areas of concern. This technique produces a high rate of success and natural, undetectable results.

The procedure usually involves local anesthesia with or without sedation. The duration of the procedures ranges from a couple to several hours and depends upon the number of grafts transplanted.

After approximately six weeks, the transplanted hair will fall out and be replaced about three months later when the new hair grows in. Results are entirely apparent by 9-12 months. To achieve sufficient density, several sessions may be required. Transplantation is a progressive process requiring hundreds of micro-grafts, each of which will generally contain from one to three hairs grafted from a donor site located on back of the head.

Benefits of Hair Replacement Surgery

  • Transplanted hair is permanent
  • Restores a natural and cosmetically pleasing brow appearance, with potentially positive psychological effects, such as a boost in confidence.
  • Less expensive than other hair-loss treatments, when factored over time.

Complementary Procedures
Medical treatment options for hair loss are available. Call for a consultation with Dr. Pearson to learn more about which options may be recommend in your case.

Recovery after Eyebrow Transplantation
Following hair replacement, you can expect a few days of swelling and soreness which is well controlled with oral pain medications. Swelling generally subsides by 5 days. No sutures are typically used. You can resume most normal activities after a few days, except for intense exercise, which may be resumed at about 3 weeks. Most people are able to return to work within days, but may choose to return in a week. The donor site scar is concealed by the hair. Recipient sites are usually not noticeable after about a week.
