Eyebrow Hair Transplant Miami

Eyebrow Hair Transplantation

Thick brows are a symbol of youth and vitality. Brows frame the face, accentuating the eyes and adding symmetry to its overall appearance. Eyebrow transplants were originally intended to restore eyebrow growth in patients who lost hair from chemotherapy or genetic diseases. However, brow transplants have recently gained popularity in the cosmetic world. The results of an eyebrow hair transplant will be natural-looking compared to results from microblading or makeup. You will see increased brow density in a custom-designed shape for your face.

Ideal candidates for an eyebrow transplant

Ideal candidates for an eyebrow transplant are individuals who were born with thin brows or those who have lost density that they wish to restore. Some patients struggle to regrow hair after chemotherapy, overplucking, and tattooing or have experienced residual scarring after trauma to the eye. Transgender patients wanting a more mascluine or feminine look are also prime candidates for this restorative treatment. Contrarily, those who have been diagnosed with alopecia areata or other autoimmune diseases that cause chronic hair loss are not typically well-suited for an eyebrow transplant; the results will not be long-lasting as intended.

Benefits of an eyebrow transplant

Since eyebrows play such a huge role in our overall facial harmony, an eyebrow hair transplant for individuals with sparse brows is life-changing. Additional benefits of a brow hair transplant include:

  • Completely restores overplucked eyebrows, scarred areas, and sections where tattooing or other medical procedures have caused baldness.
  • Assists transgender patients achieve a more masculine or feminine appearance.
  • Frames the face and accents the eyes of individuals who were born with thin brows.
  • Delivers a lifted look to patients who have shed hair due to aging.

Eyebrow transplant with FUE and DHI techniques

Care4Hair performs eyebrow transplants using two methods: Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) and Direct Hair Implantation (DHI). The two methods are alike in that they both involve removing individual hair follicles from donor areas and implanting them into the balding recipient areas. Where FUE and DHI differ, however, is how the follicles are implanted. The process for each eyebrow transplant technique goes as follows:

  • FUE
  • DHI
During an FUE eyebrow transplant, the surgeon creates tiny incisions in the recipient area according to the predetermined eyebrow shape. The donor follicles will then be removed from above the ear or back of the head with NeoGraft technology and manually implanted in the set eyebrow areas.
Amidst a DHI eyebrow transplant, the surgeon uses a specific tool, known as a Choi Implanter Pen, to remove and inject the grafts. The follicle implanting tool inserts the follicles in the recipient area in place of manual implantation.

A benefit of DHI over FUE is that the Choi Implanter Pen automatically creates openings while it implants the follicles. Therefore, DHI does not require the added step of creating the canals to insert the follicles. Also, since the follicles are quickly transferred from the donor to the transplant site, the hair spends less time disconnected from the body, warranting a healthier brow transplant.

How many hair grafts are needed for an eyebrow transplant?

If you cannot regrow eyebrow hairs because of chemotherapy, tattooing, or other trauma to your eye, your procedure may require 600-1000 grafts. If you are filling in some patchy spots, it might require only 100-200 grafts. These amounts are approximate and can be better answered by your hair specialist at the first consultation.

Risks and side effects of eyebrow transplant

Eyebrow transplants pose similar risks to other hair transplant procedures. Talk to Dr. Valladares about the following potential complications:

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Nerve damage
  • Swelling around the eyes
  • Bruising
  • Infection
  • Scarring

Eyebrow transplant recovery

The recovery period for an eyebrow transplant is fairly quick. Most patients return to their regular routines anywhere from 5-7 days following the procedure. However, results begin to reflect within 4-6 months and finalize after one year.

Scabbing and swelling around the brows is expected within the first week but rest assured, any superficial bruising or crusting will disappear after a few days. It is critical not to scratch or pick at the area in any way during this time. Do not wash your eyebrows or the donor area for at least 24 hours, and wear a button-down shirt for the first week to avoid dislodging the follicles when changing. Any pain or discomfort is easily managed with prescribed pain medication which should be filled prior to your surgery day.

The transplanted hairs will begin to shed anywhere from 2-8 weeks after your procedure during a resting phase called “shock loss.” This is the body’s natural reaction to the surgery and is no cause for alarm. The follicles remain alive and healthy under the skin while the hair sheds and regenerates in about four months; results reach maximum fullness after a year.

    FAQS

    Is an eyebrow transplant a safe procedure?

    Eyebrow restoration surgery is considered a low-risk procedure. Although infections and other complications are possible, they are uncommon.

    How long will the eyebrow hair grow?

    Hair that is transplanted to the brows will continue to grow as if it were in its original body area. For example, if your hair was transplanted from the scalp, it will grow as if it was still on the back of the scalp. Therefore, you will need to maintain your eyebrows with a quick trim once a week to maintain an appropriate eyebrow hair length.

    How long will my eyebrow transplant procedure last?

    The length of this procedure depends on how many hairs are being transplanted. The transplantation can take anywhere from 1 to 4  hours. Half of this time is used to harvest the follicles and the other half to implant the hair.

    What type of anesthesia is required for an eyebrow transplant?

    A local anesthetic is enough to numb any pain or discomfort caused by the transplant.

    Where does the donor hair come from?

    Donor hair is typically borrowed from above the ears or the back of the head.

    How long do eyebrow replacements last?

    Eyebrow transplant results should be permanent as long as the patient takes proper aftercare precautions and no future conditions destroy the new hair.

    How do you know what shape to make my brows?

    We welcome you to bring photos of the look you want to achieve at your first consultation. This way, Care4Hair’s hair specialists can have a better understanding of your aesthetic goals and work with you to develop the most natural appearance. As a guide, here are some tips for selecting the best eyebrow design for your face shape:

    • Oval face: Soft angles with shorter arches complement the oval jawline.
    • Round face: Higher, angled arches will lengthen the round face and provide balance.
    • Square face: A stronger brow with defined arches harmonize the square face.
    • Heart face: High arches suit shorter faces and low arches work best with longer faces.
    • Diamond face: Rounded brows narrow and soften the cheeks.

    If you need further assistance selecting an eyebrow shape, no worries! Our team of hair specialists are always available to help you through the process.

    Will the donor site become bald?

    Only every 3rd and 4th hair is taken from the donor site so the patient will not have a bald spot.

    What happens during the first few days of eyebrow transplantation recovery?

    Recovery for this procedure can take 5-7 days. Patients will see small crusts around the hair during the first week, which will leave pink spots, but they will eventually fade over the next few weeks. Swelling around the eyes is normal within the first week but rest assured, it will disappear during this time.

    How soon can I return to work after an eyebrow hair transplant?

    We recommend taking approximately 5-7 days from work following your eyebrow hair transplant. However, Dr. Valladares will provide personalized instructions depending on your lifestyle.
