EYEBROW RESTORATION

Loss of Eyebrows

The eyebrows play a significant part of facial symmetry and greatly affect the overall aesthetic appearance of a person.  An effective eyebrow transplant can restore sparse eyebrows to their natural fullness.

The loss of eyebrows is due to:

  • Congenital Causes
  • Trauma-burns, auto accident, chemical or electrical burns 
  • Radiation or Chemotherapy
  • Medical, Autoimmune, or Systemic Disease
  • Obsessive Compulsive plucking referred to as Trichotillomania
  • Normal Aging process

Eyebrow Hair Restoration with Omnigraft

For those men and women who suffered from eyebrows loss, automated Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) with Omnigraft provide the easiest and most efficient way of fast and simple eyebrow restoration. 

Single hair grafts from the lateral part of the occipital region of the scalp are used because they contain the greatest number of single-hair follicular units with the smallest diameter which work well in the delicate brow area, so the precision of placement is critical. Our doctors will meticulously place each and every follicular graft in the correct direction and correct angle of the hair. Attention is paid to the creation of a lovely rise of the arch or the enhancement of the existing arch. Depending upon your individual genetics and healing, your eyebrow hair desired density may require more than one procedure. 

As the procedure is performed by extracting each of these hair graft instead of removing a strip from the scalp with automated Follicular Unit Extration (FUE), therefore patients will have a faster recovery time with lesser down time and there is no linear scar left on the scalp.  

Post Operative Care

After the procedure, patients usually experience little or no discomfort and may leave the office and drive home on their own. Most of the patients are comfortable during and after the procedure, and many return to work the next day. Bruising after the surgery is common and it may take a week or more to resolve.

The following morning after the procedure, the patient should gently wash the transplanted area to remove any dried crusts. This should be done in the shower at least three times the day following surgery and twice daily for a week. After each shower, an antibiotic ointment should be applied to the brow to help soften any crusts and  to enable them to be more easily removed with the next washing. 

The tiny crusts that form after surgery fall off in about ten (10) days. After that time, the transplanted follicles go into a dormant period of about three to four months. This is a period when patience is needed as the eyebrow will look like it did prior to surgery. 

As the transplanted hairs grow, they will require occasional trimming because transplanted hair grows at the same rate as the hair on your scalp. Regular trimming and care will be necessary to maintain the brows to look their best. You may straighten the hairs, pluck them, wax them, dye them, and cut them to the desired length.

The eyebrow hair growth will slow down over time and the hair will begin to assume some of the characteristics of the original eyebrow hair hair due to influence of the recipient site. It should also understand that two or more sessions may be required to obtain the desired look. Surgery is best spaced a minimum of eight (8) months apart in order to observe the full effects of the first surgery.

FOLLICULAR UNIT EXTRACTION (FUE) HAIR IMPLANTATION

FUE hair transplant

What is FUE?

“F.U.E.” or “Follicular-Unit Extraction” is an advanced, minimally-invasive hair transplant method which allows for the harvesting of individual follicles from the donor area without a scalpel incision or the necessary stitches, and therefore leaves no linear scar.  From a surgical standpoint, it is a very safe, non invasive, relatively minor procedure.

Traditionally, FUE procedure is done with the practitioner extracting each graft (follicular unit) from the donor area using a cylindrical punch and reimplants it directly into the recipient area with an implanter or a tweezer.

  Although FUE transplant is the most beneficial for the patient, many hair restoration doctors choose not to offer the FUE procedure. This is because when done traditionally, that is, manually, it is very tedious and takes a large amount of time to perform and thus is very tiring, especially for the practitioner's eyes. The longer time taken also increases the cost for the patient. 

Omnigraft Automated FUE vs Traditional FUE

In the traditional F.U.E. technique, which is the done manually, the slicing tool usually penetrates up to the top of the bulb, which greatly increases the risk of transection if the angle of penetration is not perfectly within the axis of the hair. The practitioner then pulls out the graft, most often with a tweezer, which also traumatises it or leaves the bulb in the skin. In fact, a loss of more than 15 to 20% of the grafted hair can occur, which is unacceptable to a patient who is already losing a lot of hair!

FUE extraction

The Omnigraft FUE system is a new automated hair transplant system which facilitates the harvesting of hair follicles during an Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplant, dramatically improving the accuracy and speed over previously used manual extraction instruments.  

 This system surpasses the traditional FUE method in many ways by providing solutions for the short comings of traditional FUE while maintaining its advantages.

The automated phases of graft extraction and reimplantation provides optimum graft quality with low transection percentage, and an enormous savings in time, less trauma to the grafts during the phases of extraction, storage and reimplantation, ensuring perfect quality of hair regrowth and an optimum aesthetic outcome.

 

More Benefits of Automated FUE

  • no risk of rejection since the donor and the recipient site are from the same person.
  • minimally-invasive
  • painless with the use of simple local anaesthesia
  • causes little bleeding, no deep stitches
  • does not require dressings after the procedure
  • low to no risk of infection or complications
  • extremely fast and practically invisible healing in the days following the procedure
  • allows several procedures without causing damages to the donor area
  • provides the possibility of short "a la carte" sessions, patient can opt for shorter session to be done in a day and continue at different day
  • Omnigraft system greatly reduces the operating time as compare with traditional method, thus provides savings on the costing
