Eyebrows are a crucial feature of your face. Thinning eyebrows can make you feel like you have lost a part of what makes you beautiful. If you feel the same way, this one is for you. Eyebrow transplants have become a thing in the recent years. Be it the desire for fuller brows or bald spots being caused due to receding hair, it is the way to go.
Eyebrow transplants are used to restore growing hair to overly thin, scarred, or completely missing eyebrows. The absence of hair can be a result of various factors, such as genetics, prior electrolysis or laser hair removal and over-plucking. It could also occur from various health problems like thyroid and other hormonal abnormalities. Trauma due to surgery, burns or other accidents are other main reasons.
The process of eyebrow transplant involves removing either individual hair follicles or a strip of tissue with active follicles from the donor area to the recipient area (the back of the head is the most common harvesting site, while the recipient site here is the eyebrow.) The follicles are then maintained to fit the preferred brow shape and transplanted into the brow area.
Around 50 to 325 hairs, depending upon the existing amount of hair on the eyebrow and the desired size and density, are placed into each eyebrow to give you a fuller and desirable eyebrow.
