Eyebrows are a critical part of facial symmetry in both men and women. Thinning hair can occur in this area as it does on the scalp for a variety of reasons. Fortunately, most of these can be addressed with hair transplanted into the area producing a fuller, thicker brow or replacing one that has been lost.
What Causes Eyebrow Hair Loss?
- Over-plucking or shaving eyebrows in the past
- Burns, scarring or other trauma
- Normal aging process
- Congenital causes
- Radiation or chemotherapy treatments
How is an Eyebrow Procedure Performed?
Eyebrow procedures are best performed using the FUT method whereby a small strip of scalp is removed from the back of the scalp and then separated into individual follicles. These follicles are then placed into recipient sites created in the eyebrow area with a small needle or fine scalpel.
How Should I Treat My Eyebrows After Transplantation?
Patients may treat restored eyebrows just as they would their original eyebrows, including cutting, plucking, waxing, or dyeing.
