Being a crucial characteristic, eyebrows define our look. As eyebrows serve to frame the eyes (the most relevant part of the face) and are in a more central area of the face, eyebrows are more important than scalp hair. The hair loss on the eyebrows is not seen as a natural process, unlike the loss of scalp hair, and hence not visually acceptable.
Thyroid and other systemic diseases, burns, alopecia areata, tattoos, repeated plucking, infections, congenital inability to grow eyebrows, and a genetic tendency for eyebrows to thin, or disappear, over time among other are common causes of eyebrow loss.
To do this type of procedure we only utilize the FUE hair loss solution technique because it allows us to extract finer and thinner grafts that can be implanted closer to each other to have a natural result; also, the incisions are less visible considering the skin under the eyebrows is very sensible.
Procedure and Recovery
Depending on the patient´s selection, the surgery can be done either with an oral sedative or local anesthesia. Both the procedure and the recovery process are painless. The procedure normally last between four and five hours. After the procedure, and for the 5 next days, the area must be kept completely dry; small crusts form around each transplanted hair. As early as on the second day, patients can return home and continue their normal routine. Results, however, will start to show until the third or fourth day. After about 2 weeks after the procedure, the hairs will fall out. And finally, hairs will continue to grow for a lifetime after a three month period and hair loss maybe a thing of the past.
It is imperative to keep in mind that the implanted follicles on the eyebrows will continue to grow, that is, as they did when they were on the head. Therefore, it is necessary to habitually trim and comb them to have an adequate look.
HOW DO WE MANAGE TO GIVE THE EYEBROWS A NATURAL SHAPE?
In order to obtain natural results, we follow these rules:
- We don´t perform multiple grafts of hairs, we only use single-hairs.
- To follow the normal curve of the eyebrow, we rotate the hairs accordingly.
- The transplant will be done considering the hairs must be as flat to the skin surface as possible.
- To create an interlocking ridge, the lower hairs would be pointing out and slightly upward and the upper hairs pointing out and slightly downward. This, to give fullness to the eyebrows. Making the hair loss unnoticeable.
RECOVERY TIME FOR THIS SURGERY
If the patient is travelling nationally, he could travel again until the third day. However if the patient is travelling internationally exclusively for this procedure, it is recommended he travel on the fourth day. During his stay in Bogota, he will have two post operatory controls and after a week we will talk via Skype (J-gil79) or via email (email@example.com) during the first recovery month.
