Eyebrow hair’ direction changes in every part of the brow as near to nose these are in upright direction while remaining can be in downwards direction and even for female candidates it is important to give arch look to eyebrows.
Even eyebrow hair differs from the hair on the head both in length, texture, thickness and even in colour so surgeon needs to take care of all these things before restoring eyebrow.
HAIR TRANSPLANT METHOD FOR EYEBROW RESTORATION
After the medical examination of the patient and knowing his medical history next step for eyebrow transplant is to know the extent of hair loss in the eyebrows so that transplant surgery could be planned accordingly.
Eyebrow hair transplant has been done with the FUE hair transplant method under which individual hair follicles are extracted and transplanted in the targeted area. For restoration surgery, eyebrows are divided into three parts that are head, body, and tail. In all three parts direction of hair is different so for transplantation slits or holes are made according to the direction in particular area.
The slits are made acute angle parallel to the skin so that new hair can be emerged out flat and in the same direction as existing hair to give natural look. Exact match of the eyebrow hair is taken out from the scalp or body hair and then individual hair follicles are extracted and transplanted one by one to regrow them in their natural direction and look.
HOW FUE DIFFERS IN SCALP HAIR AND EYEBROW RESTORATION
However, the basic principle of FUE remain the same in both the procedures but it can differ in the following prospective
For scalp hair restoration selection of donor, hair has been done on the basis of the available density of loss resistant hair on the back head or near to neck areas whereas in the eyebrow restoration donor’s hair are selected according to exact match of eyebrow hair and it can be taken from scalp or from other body parts.
Creation of recipient site also differs under eyebrow restoration than the scalp restoration. In scalp hair, restoration hair is placed with an angle 30 or 45-degree angle but in eyebrow restoration, surgery hair grafts are placed acutely flat against skin.
In scalp hair restoration grafts are placed in simple and straight manner but in eyebrow restoration grafts has to be transplanted in curve shape so that patient can have natural looking dense eyebrows after surgery.
