An eyebrow transplant is a cosmetic procedure that restores or improves eyebrow hair growth. It involves harvesting hair from one area of the body and surgically implanting hair follicles into the eyebrow area. You can have a transplant on one eyebrow or both.
Meshkin Medical specializes in body hair transplant procedures like the eyebrow transplant.
The team at Meshkin Medical determines if you’re a candidate for an eyebrow transplant after completing a thorough history and physical examination. They consider the cause of your hair loss when deciding whether you’re a candidate.
They may consider you a candidate for an eyebrow transplant if the underlying medical issue that caused your hair loss is under control to ensure success. They also perform eyebrow transplants for people in treatment for trichotillomania, a mental health condition in which a person compulsively plucks out their hair.
Eyebrow restoration is also an option for people with scarring on their face that prevents or limits eyebrow growth.
The team also performs cosmetic eyebrow transplants for people who wish to enhance their appearance.
The team at Meshkin Medical customizes eyebrow transplant procedures based on the amount of restoration needed.
They harvest very fine hair from your scalp or body using the follicular unit extraction (FUE) or follicular unit transplant (FUT) technique. Your provider then implants the donor hair, one or two hair follicle units at a time, into the eyebrow using methods that provide the best results.
Using single hair grafts allows your provider to follow your natural contours and create a natural appearance. You may need more than one eyebrow transplant session to get the results you want.
An eyebrow transplant is an outpatient procedure, so you go home the same day. You may have some pain and swelling, but these side effects resolve quickly.
The specialists at Meshkin Medical give you at-home care instructions to improve healing and prevent complications.
Some of the transplanted hair may fall out within a few weeks, but new hair grows in its place. It may take several weeks until you see results from your eyebrow transplant.
