Eyebrow transplant used to be limited to helping burn victims, but time and advances in technology has seen it evolve into a cosmetic option popular with both men and women looking to reshape and rejuvenate their eyebrows.
Your eyebrow hairs grow from the follicle at a sharp angle, so unlike the hairs on your head, your eyebrow hair is growing flat against the surface of your skin. The growth cycle of your eyebrow hair is also far shorter than that of the hairs of your scalp – about four months, as compared to three to seven years. Unlike your scalp hair, your eyebrow hairs grow as individual strands; there are no follicular groups of hairs in a bunch that can be moved from one area to another. Typically, 50 to 325 hairs are individually moved into the brow during an eyebrow transplant procedure, another reason a skilled surgeon is needed to perform this delicate task. The hairs must be perfectly placed into tiny incisions that are at just the right angle and direction to mimic natural growth.
Dr. Umar is able to take donor hair which is extracted one follicle at a time from your leg, or your nape. Traditional transplant uses donor hair from the middle of the back of the head which is coarse and fast growing. By using slow growing hair that are thinner, Dr Umar’s uGraft method brings eyebrow transplantation ever closer to natural never like before. With Dr Umar’s approach, the patient would have less need to trim the eyebrow as frequently as would have been necessary if traditional donors were used.
Keep in mind, because your new eyebrow hair comes from a different part of your body, it will continue to grow, so keep your scissors handy for regular trimming!
We are the only clinic in Los Angeles that offers this procedure, and Dr. Umar is among a handful of doctors in the world expert enough to handle it.
UGRAFT RESULTS REPLACE TATTOOED BROWS IN FEMALE PATIENT
After years of waxing and plucking to keep her eyebrows attractive and shapely, this patient started to notice her eyebrow hair getting too thin. And it would not grow back. It eventually became so sparse that she began getting cosmetic tattooing on her eyebrows, but it did not appear natural and was an inconvenience since the ink fades and must be renewed about every three months.
It was a combination of the cosmetic maintenance she’d employed with hormonal changes and aging—these things cause most women to suffer eyebrow hair loss. Finally, the patient came to Dr. Umar seeking a permanent fix. The solution was eyebrow transplant. Using FUE hair restoration, Dr. Umar was able to graft 600 individual hairs from the nape of her neck and implant them along the brow bone.
These results are from only 6 months after her procedure. The yield will continue to improve even at 10 months. With the growing need for cosmetic correction of eyebrow hair loss, this patient’s eyebrow transplant case was an example for many. KNBC Health News covered her story earlier this year.
