How does eyebrow transplant work?
Similar to hair and beard transplant, grafts of hair are transplanted from the donor area at the back of the head. Tiny incision sites are made along the eyebrow area, carefully enough to maintain the patient’s natural look. The extracted grafts are then delicately implanted into the incision sites. The size, the shape, the density and angle of placement of the grafts for eyebrow transplant matters a lot and differ from patient to patient.
For example, female and male patients have different eye brow structure. Male patients tend to have thicker, wider and less curved brow, while females have a thinner and more curved brow. Caution must also be taken on factors like ethnicity since some races have thicker brows than others. The number of grafts transplanted depends on the patient’s appearance; on average however, 100-150 grafts on each brow are a good rough estimate. Grafts are carefully selected with regards to thickness and color; only 1s grafts are transplanted on the eyebrows to maintain the natural fineness. Eyebrow transplant is done by the FUE technique.
