FUE eyebrow hair transplant
Eyebrow hair transplant is a technique that uses FUE for the purpose of permanently restoring eyebrow hair in patients who suffer from congenital eyebrow absence, who lost hair due to trauma (scarring, over plucking, chemotherapy), or who wish to thicken or enhance the appearance of their eyebrows for aesthetic purposes. The procedure is a fairly simple one with an extremely rapid healing time, however that is no reason to undermine the method. It is very important for it to be done by extremely experienced surgeons as it requires high precision. The team at Vera Clinic has a rich past experience in eyebrow hair transplant, and in light of the recent fashion trends, is aware of the importance of eyebrows in terms of physical appearance and aesthetics. Given that, we have never been more committed to work with extremely accomplished eyebrow hair transplant surgeons to provide the most precise technologies for our patients. Depending on the patients desired end result, a specific number of hairs will be extracted from either the patient’s eyebrow (eyebrow will not be shaved), behind ear hairs, or upper thighs – to guarantee a natural appearance- and implanted very tightly together in the direction of natural hair growth in areas of hair loss. The set of equipment used to extract and implant hairs, at Vera Clinic, are all micro in dimension and size to ensure an immaculate end result with no scarring induced anywhere on the eyebrow after the treatment.
FUE eyebrow hair transplant recovery and results:
Soreness and slight crusting around the area of the surgery are to be expected, these symptoms will fade within a week. The patient is expected to resume regular activity within 48 hours of the surgery, granted none of the activities are strenuous. Shedding of the transplanted hair will begin at around 3 to 5 weeks, this is fully normal and should not be a source of concern. The hair will begin to re-grow at around 2 months post-surgery, and noticeable hair growth will start to appear anywhere near 4 to 6 months after surgery.
Duration of surgery:
The duration of an FUE eyebrow hair transplant depends on how many grafts need to be extracted and transplanted, but on average it takes 5-6 hours on average for it to be completed.
Factors determining candidacy:
In general, patients looking to restore or thicken their eyebrow hairs are eligible for eyebrow transplant surgery—however being in reasonably good health is advisable to minimize the risk of complications.
At Vera Clinic we provide every individual patient with an after-care kit that contains information on how to manage the transplanted hairs for optimal results and to eliminate scarring. In addition to this, our after-care kits include necessary supplies such as shampoos, creams, antibacterial serums and pain-killers; designed exclusively to be gentle on the scalp and the transplanted hairs post an FUE and to shorten healing time.
