The procedure is performed by strip follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or by follicular unit extraction (FUE). The goal is to create a satisfactory and natural-looking transplanted eyebrow shape according to the patients’ desire. The procedure is even more challenging and difficult for patients who prefer the FUE technique.
Successful eyebrow hair transplantation depends on the following: physician’s proper patient evaluation and education, innate passion, artistry and experience of the surgeon knowledge of eyebrow anatomy, attention to procedure details with the ability to reproduce the most acute angle and direction using single hair grafts and proper instrumentation to avoid graft trauma in the experience of Dr. Arambulo, even after just one session of eyebrow transplant, our patients are satisfied and happy with the results.
The donor's hairs come from the scalp which, when transplanted into the eyebrows, continue to grow for a lifetime and therefore need to be trimmed initially once a week.
To provide a natural appearance, this very delicate procedure, requires perfect placement of ultrafine hairs into tiny incisions that are angled at just the right direction and positioned to mimic natural growth.
Performed usually under a mild oral sedative, the 2–4 hours procedure is essentially painless, as is the recovery period.
For the first 2 to 4 days after the procedure, tiny crusts are around each transplanted hair.
By 3 to 5 days, other than some occasional mild pinkness which fades out by the first week, patients are able to return to normal activities without any sign of having had a procedure.
Sutures that are placed in the donor area are removed after 1 week.
