Eyebrow Hair Transplant

Eyebrow hair restoration represents the highest art form in the practice of delicate hair restoration. Eyebrow hair transplantation at Dr Gupta’s Hair Transplant Centre pays meticulous attention to technical detail combined with an artistic eye. The flat hair angle, natural curl, and flare-to-fishbone design pattern of the eyebrow are all integral to the creation of an attractive and full eyebrow contour during eyebrow hair transplant. Finer hairs from the back of the head are used that only possess single hairs, and for individuals with truly fine hair we use occasionally 2-hair grafts for the inner club portion of the eyebrow. Eyebrow transplants have become recognized as an increasingly important aesthetic component to overall attractiveness, youth, vitality, and in reconstructive cases normalcy.

Eyebrow Hair Loss

Eyebrow hair loss can occur for a variety of reasons. Certain diseases like low thyroid condition can predispose toward eyebrow hair loss. Another reason that may benefit from eyebrow transplantation would be overplucking or overtweazing the eyebrow areas leading to a partial or total absence of eyebrow hair. In addition, trauma or accidents can cause eyebrow hair loss or alternatively surgically related hair loss from skin cancer operations in this area. Some individuals are just born with thin eyebrows and would like to have thicker eyebrows to frame their eyes and to make their face and eyes look more attractive. Oftentimes, tattooing the eyebrow can provide an inadequately natural result that appears painted on despite the most artistic attempts at fashioning an eyebrow.

Eyebrow Hair Loss Treatment

The solution to eyebrow hair loss for whatever reason is surgical hair transplantation in which hairs are carefully chosen from the finest hairs in the back of the head and placed with precision in the areas of hair loss in the eyebrow region. It is so very important to place the angles of the eyebrow hairs correctly to ensure a natural result, more specifically the angles must be very very flat along the skin, have a radiating club shape toward the nose, and a “fish-tail” appearance, i.e., cross hatching, as the end is approached. Transplanted eyebrow hairs do grow at the rate of the donor scalp hair but over time can begin to slow down in speed, especially after the first year or two to the natural rate of eyebrow hairs owing to the influence of the skin in the eyebrow region to the overall growth of these transplanted hairs (a condition known as recipient dominance).
