What is an eyebrow hair transplant?
For years the only way to make your eyebrows look thicker was to use makeup products.
These products would be used to fill in hairs to give people with thin brows a much fuller look. This solution would work for most, but it was only temporary. Now with an eyebrow transplant, there is a permanent solution.
Those looking for the best eyebrow transplant Mumbai has to offer should get in contact with Dr Mehta at the Malay Mehta Aesthetic Clinic. They take centre stage on your face, so visit Dr Mehta today to get the brows you deserve, to look and feel your best.
Performed by a cosmetic surgeon, an eyebrow hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure where hair grafts (taken normally from just above your ears), are transferred to your brows. New hairs will then grow from these grafts giving your eyebrows a much thicker, fuller look.
If you’re suffering from a loss of hair around your eyebrows, a hair transplant could really help you. However the best candidates for an eyebrow transplant procedure in Mumbai:
- Have naturally thin eyebrows
- Have over-plucked eyebrows
- Have lost hair as a result of an accident or surgery
- Are in generally good health
- Have realistic expectations regarding results
To find out if an eyebrow transplant can help you, contact Dr Mehta today to book an initial consultation.
Causes of eyebrow hair loss
It’s not just the hair on your head that people tend to lose. Eyebrows can thin out and stop growing for a number of different reasons:
- Nutrient deficiencies
- Eczema (atopic dermatitis)
- Thyroid issues
- Hansen’s disease
- Stress and anxiety
- Pregnancy and childbirth
- Telogen effluvium
- Persistent plucking
- Overuse of makeup products
- Accident or trauma
If you’re suffering from loss of hair around your brows as a result of any of these factors, then an eyebrow hair transplant can help.
With any surgical procedure, there are always some risks and possible side effects. There is a very small risk of complications with an eyebrow transplant but it’s important that you know all of the details. Uncommon but possible side effects are:
- nerve damage
- excessive bleeding
One other potential risk is that the new eyebrow hair follicles won’t take, in which case you may have to have the procedure repeated in the future. It’s important to note that before your eyebrow transplant, Dr Mehta will go over your medical history with you and ask about any medication you’re taking to ensure you’re a good candidate for the surgery.
Eyebrow transplant procedure
The actual procedure for an eyebrow transplant is actually very similar to a traditional hair transplant. Hair is taken from an area where the hair is thick and then inserted into the eyebrows.
Eyebrow hair grafts are usually taken from hairs just above your ears. The hair follicles are transferred as well as the hair to help ensure that new hair will grow. Small incisions are made both the follicle donor site and the sites of transplantation in your brows. The new hairs are then inserted one by one.
Length of procedure
The entire process takes about 2 to 3 hours during which most patients listen to music, watch television or even sleep.
Anaesthesia and pain
The procedure is performed under local anaesthesia so you won’t feel any pain. If you are in any discomfort you will be given some medication to enable you to relax.
The downtime and recovery period for eyebrow transplants is relatively quick. For the first few days after the procedure, you’ll notice some scabbing around the brows which you must not touch. Then approximately 3 to 7 days after treatment, the crusts where your grafts were placed will start to fall off. It’s completely normal to see some redness in this area. However, if you experience any bleeding, swelling, or pus at the site you should contact Dr Mehta.
Eyebrow care post-procedure
In order to get the best results from your eyebrow transplant, it’s imperative that you take care of them after treatment. This will also help to ensure you don’t have any issues post-procedure.
After surgery you should avoid touching your eyebrows at all for the first 24 hours, to avoid any risk of infection. During this time though you can use a saline follicle spray to promote healing.
After 24 hours you’ll be able to wash your face and eyebrows with a specialist shampoo. Be sure to only gently pat them dry though as rubbing your eyebrows at this time can lead to complications.
You should try and avoid direct sunlight as much as possible for the first month after your eyebrow transplant. As with any surgical procedure, it’s important to remember that you need to give your body time to heal.
Eyebrow hair will fall out
2 to 3 weeks after the procedure, your transplanted hairs will start to fall out. You should not worry as this is completely normal. They will soon start to grow back looking thicker and fuller than before.
Plucking eyebrow hairs
We advise that you don’t pluck any transplanted hairs after the procedure. Too much plucking may prevent the hairs from growing back. However, if you do wish to pluck your eyebrows you should wait at least 6 to 12 months after treatment.
You should refrain from using makeup during the initial recovery period if you want to ensure the best long-term results. After approximately 2 weeks most patients have fully healed after surgery and will be fine to wear makeup.
There are a number of benefits of an eyebrow hair transplant:
- Minimally invasive procedure
- Enhances your appearance
- Boosts confidence
- Permanent solution
- Limits need for brow makeup
- Thickens up thin or over-plucked eyebrows
- Simple aftercare
- Minimal downtime recovery
- Little risk of complications
One of the huge benefits of an eyebrow hair transplant is that it looks completely natural. As the hair follicles that are transplanted are your own, they blend seamlessly with the hair that’s already there.
