What Is Eyebrow Restoration?
Eyebrow restoration is a surgical procedure intended to permanently revive and/or customize the appearance of the eyebrows. It was originally reserved for burn victims and patients of sicknesses that stop hair from growing in the eyebrow region. Eyebrow restoration surgeries – or transplants – have since developed into a cosmetic procedure preferred by people wanting to have perfect eyebrows.
Some standard hair restoration surgeons offer eyebrow restorations too. Both procedures should be only performed by certificated surgeons who specialize in hair and eyebrow transplantation.
The most popular hair and eyebrow restoration surgery strategy is follicular unit transplantation, which involves the removal of donor follicles from the back of the patient’s head (where hair is more permanent). Once removed, the “donor area” is then stitched back up with no apparent scar tissue. The donor follicles are then transplanted into the “problem areas” of the patient’s scalp.
The most significant side of transplanting eyebrows is to follow the natural hair direction extraordinarily closely. This entails very delicate angle changes to recreate the fan-like splay of hair at the medial side of the brow and the converging hair direction as one moves laterally along the brow. Most significantly, the receiver sites for the hairs should be made with a very fine-gauge needle that literally slides along the surface of the skin as the sites are being made, as this will insure that the hair will lie as flat as possible on the surface of the skin as it grows.
