The eyebrow hair transplant is a treatment very similar to the hair restoration transplant. It is an autologous surgical procedure, with the transfer of hair from certain areas of the scalp to the eyebrows, reconstructing them.
At Replace, the transplantation technique used is the FUE technique, whose procedure consists of extracting the follicles one by one, requiring no stitches or sutures and whose scars are practically undetectable when correctly performed.
The eyebrow has a different type of hair, naturally thinner, so the hair to be transplanted will be harvested from the area of the scalp that most closely resembles your eyebrow. The results will, thus, be natural and definite for the areas of your eyebrow to deal with.
It is important that you select your treatment with a full follow-up from your medical surgeon, the only professional able to guide you through the appropriate treatment and to designate all the medical indications as well as to keep you well-informed of the whole procedure before, during and after the surgery.
One of Clínica REPLACE main goals is to guarantee permanent patient support in the search for better answers for the resolution of the desires and dissatisfactions of its clients.
Much like other hair transplants, the feasibility of an eyebrow transplant is determined through an assessment consultation. This step is essential to check the density of the donor area, which is generally located at the back of the head, and to confirm that the eyebrow transplant is viable. Therefore, to undergo this hair transplant, one must:
Have a dense donor area (at the back of the head or elsewhere) to facilitate the extraction of follicles for the subsequent implant;
Be in good health, particularly without any blood clotting issues;
Suffer from a type of alopecia that allows for the recovery of lost hair follicles in the eyebrow area;
Schedule an assessment consultation for blood tests, undergo trichoscopy, and evaluate your clinical conditions with the medical teams.
The process of transplanting is minimally invasive, encompassing several stages from the initial assessment consultation to the implantation of hair follicles in the eyebrow area. After this consultation and a positive diagnosis by the medical teams, the steps of this hair transplant can be summarized as:
Application of local anesthesia;
Extraction of hair follicles from the donor area (back of the head);
Implantation of the extracted follicles in the eyebrow area.
The use of local anesthesia is common in hair transplants, serving to eliminate sensitivity for 1 to 2 hours and prevent the patient from feeling pain. The eyebrow transplant involves the careful collection of hair follicles from the donor area, paying attention to the spacing between extraction sites. Subsequently, these hair units are meticulously examined, as only healthy follicles in perfect condition are used for the transplant.
Transplantation is the final phase of this procedure. The harvested follicles are placed in the eyebrow area in accordance with the direction of existing hairs and the contours and anatomical functions. These steps are crucial for a flawless implant and natural-looking results.
