What is an Eyebrow Transplant?

Wondering How Eyebrow Enhancements Work Bay Area?

People are curious about eyebrow transplants for all sorts of reasons. Some individuals have naturally thin eyebrows because of hereditary factors, while others notice thinning over time because of additional influences. Regardless of the reason an individual has thin eyebrows, an eyebrow transplant may be a solution. This article will go over everything you need to know about Bay Area eyebrow enhancements.

How It Works

Eyebrow transplants are in-office outpatient procedures. They usually rely on local rather than general anesthesia, and oral sedation is used as well. These eliminate the prospect of pain during the procedure.

The surgeon harvests hair from the back of the patient’s head and then places it in the desired, preplanned spots on the eyebrows. Following the transplant, there usually isn’t pain in the eyebrow region. There may be pain on the back of the patient’s head, but that usually goes away within one to two days.

After Bay Area eyebrow transplants are complete, some patience is necessary because the new, thicker eyebrow appearance will take some time to become apparent. However, new hairs will typically begin to grow about three to four months post-procedure. After six to eight months, patients usually see top-end results. These results are usually permanent, especially if a skilled surgeon handles the procedure. Some eyebrow maintenance will be necessary for the patient, namely in the form of regular trimming of the donor hairs.

Other Considerations

To ensure a satisfactory result, an experienced San Francisco hair transplant surgeon will also take other factors into account. For example, the surgeon will want to keep the patient’s facial features in mind while contouring the eyebrows. Another factor is the angle of the hair grafts. These will vary from patient to patient. Good surgeons also consider their patients’ input on the desired appearance of the eyebrows.

Eyebrow Transplants versus Microblading

Many patients wonder what sets eyebrow transplants apart from microblading. The main difference is that micoblading does not actually involve hair; instead, it “fakes” the appearance of hair by using pigments. Microblading produces less natural results, which are not permanent.
