The eyebrows frame the eyes and are an important part of facial symmetry. Aesthetics Hair Restoration in Atlanta offers eyebrow restoration for patients who are self-conscious about their thinning or missing eyebrows. Transplantation surgery can restore the eyebrows to their natural, full appearance. The procedure is similar to a typical hair transplant of the scalp.
Eyebrows can become thin or absent for many different reasons. Some patients may have a genetic predisposition to thin eyebrows. Trauma and burns can also cause hair loss. Over-plucking is another factor that can diminish the fullness of eyebrows.
The most important aspect of eyebrow restoration is the proper placement of the hair follicles. Dr. Ballon’s highly skilled team places each follicular graft in the correct direction and angle in order to achieve natural looking results. Generally, 120-200 grafts are required for each eyebrow. The procedure can be done under local anesthesia and is typically completed within 3-4 hours.
Following the procedure, most patients can return to their normal activities the next day. The formation of tiny crusts around the grafts is normal and should fall off within 10 days. After 3 to 4 months, the eyebrow hair will begin to grow. Regular trimming and care may be necessary to maintain the desired shape of the eyebrows. Just like your regular hair, the transplanted hairs are permanent and can be trimmed, waxed, and plucked.
