An eyebrow transplant means that hair is moved from the neck to the eyebrows using FUE technique. Individual hair are taken and planted into the area where the patient wants more hair. When it comes to very small areas in the eyebrow, the procedure is relatively quick and the transplant can be completed in around an hour. Most people choose to undergo an eyebrow transplant to achieve fuller eyebrows or to adjust the shape of their eyebrows.
If you have very thin eyebrows, or have lost your eyebrows, you can replace them through the help of a transplantation. For those who have started plucking eyebrows at a very young age, damage can occur to the hair follicles in the eyebrows. This can result in the hair growth deteriorating and then completely ceasing after a number of years, to leave behind thin weak eyebrows. To achieve thicker and fuller eyebrows, an eyebrow transplant may be required.
Hairs have slightly different structures depending on where on the head they grow. Often the hairs are slightly darker at the nape of the neck than the front of the scalp and it is important to consider this before an eyebrow transplant.
Normal eyebrows rarely grow longer than 10 mm while the regular hair on the head can become up to a meter long. This means that the "new" transplanted eyebrows will need to be trimmed occasionally.
Sometimes the new hairs that we transplant into the eyebrow grow a bit astray. Normally this corrects after a few months and the hairs become straight. It is possible to remove the hair that has grown crooked at a later time.
Many people have very fine hairs in the eyebrows but can also have coarse and hard hairs that grow on the head.
