Bay Area Eyebrow Enhancements with Hair Transplant Surgery
If you’re interested in eyebrow restoration with hair transplant surgery, there are several things you should know before undergoing this kind of San Jose hair restoration procedure. Our FUE doctor explains.
1. What typically causes eyebrow hair loss?
There are a wide range of factors that can lead to eyebrow baldness or thinning. However, some of the most common ones include over plucking, certain accidents like chemical or physical trauma to the face, medical conditions that cause hair shedding, and even aging.
2. Who qualifies as a candidate for the procedure?
Any individual experiencing thinned eyebrows is largely considered as an ideal candidate for San Jose eyebrow enhancements.
3. It is a permanent remedy?
Yes it is. Anyone who undergoes an eyebrow hair transplant procedure will experience long-term growth similar to that of their original eyebrow hairs.
4. Where does the donor hair come from?
In the case of partial eyebrow hair thinning or baldness, the donor hairs used in the transplant procedure can be extracted from the other brow. When it comes to women, certain donor grafts may be obtained from the upper-thigh region or behind the ears since hairs from these places tend to create a more natural appearance since they are thinner. In the case of men, grafts may be taken from different areas of the skin based on the thickness of their original
5. What will be the number of grafts used in the procedure?
A standard eyebrow hair transplant procedure requires around 50 to 100 hair grafts, but in some cases the number may be higher. It generally depends on the condition of the patient.
6. Where is the procedure conducted?
The procedure will be conducted in either our San Francisco or Los Gatos/San Jose office. Another great thing about eyebrow restoration procedures is that its an out-patient procedure, meaning you won’t need to be under continued medical care after the surgery is complete.
7. How long does it take?
In most cases, the amount of time taken by a surgeon to conduct an eyebrow hair restoration procedure is around 5 to 6 hours, depending on the condition of the patient.
8. What is the recovery time?
Due the fact that this kind of procedure involves the use of fine surgical instruments and minimally invasive methods, a patient may resume their regular skincare routine within just 48 hours, provided that they do not engage in any kind of strenuous events or contact sports.
9. What are the possible risks and side effects?
There is minimal risk associated with eyebrow hair restoration and one of the rare side effects involves grafted hair growing in the wrong direction. Be sure to choose a reputable hair transplant doctor, like Dr. John Diep, to avoid such side effects.
10. When will I see the end result?
The transplanted hair grafts will start to become noticeable 3 to 6 months after the surgery. However, you should expect some shedding around 3 to 5 weeks after the procedure, but this should not worry you since it is a natural process and your hair will begin to grow back again after 2 months.
