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.
