FUE Eyebrow Transplants

If your eyes are the windows to your soul, then the eyebrows are the gates

Your eyebrows frame your face and provide balance and structure. They are crucial to it’s symmetry. It has been proven that without your eyebrows people could have difficulty in recognising you.

In a scientific study carried out by the Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology, researchers found that we are more likely to recognise faces with eyebrows than without.

For various reasons, many of us choose to pull, pluck or even laser our eyebrows to follow a particular trend. Past trends involved making the eyebrows much thinner but more recently, the trend adopted seems for fuller and thicker eyebrows.

FUE hair transplantation to re-build thining or narrowing eyebrows

Unfortunately, for many men and women, due to the pulling, waxing or over plucking of their eyebrows, they cannot grow back the hair as it has permanently been removed. For others it's a habit that they cannot seem to stop. By continuous rubbing and pulling of the hairs they initiate a process called traction alopecia, once again, permanently removing the eyebrow hairs from the face.

Another aesthetic problem might be scarring. Eyebrows are such an important part of the face contributing to facial recognition, emotion and communication. When an eyebrow is scarred it can be very noticeable. With eyebrow implantation, we can rebuild narrow or thinning eyebrows, build new eyebrows from scratch, or even repair scars. This form of implantation is suitable for both men and women.

The FUE eyebrow transplantation process...

  • In conjunction with your requirements our skilled Surgeon, will use their aesthetic skills to design the perfect eyebrows for you.
  • The donor area is also evaluated by the surgeon to ensure that just the right amount of grafts are extracted.
  • You will be given a local anaesthetic in the donor area (back and sides of the head), so that the extraction will be pain free. You are awake during the entire procedure.
  • We use a medical punch tool to carefully extract the follicular units. Usually less than 1mm in diameter.
  • During the extraction, the grafts are taken carefully and spread out to ensure, that when the hair grows back in the donor area, it looks completely natural.
  • The extracted grafts are carefully placed in a special solution to help, clean, vitalise and preserve them ready from implantation into the facial area.
  • The recipient area, in this case the top of the head or hairline, is also given local anaesthetic.
  • Using a top quality medical implantation tool, the grafts are carefully injected into the recipient area, controlling the perfect depth angle and direction of each graft to match the direction of hair and contours of the head.
  • The patient follows some simple aftercare during the rapid healing phase. After a period of time when the newly implanted hairs start to grow, they will grow for life.

The end result is 100% natural.
