Millions of men and women will experience thinning hair or hair loss in their lifetime. Similarly to the hair on our heads, our eyebrows can also be vulnerable to this thinning or loss as well. Your eyebrows have a great impact on your appearance and this loss of volume or their existence in general can leave you feeling less like yourself.
NeoGraft Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) is an advanced hair restoration system that helps restore your eyebrows to what they once were. By automating the harvesting and implantation of individual hair follicles, the NeoGraft procedure can leave you with the results your seeking with little to no downtime.
Usually, the first thing that comes to mind when talking about hair restoration is the hair on your head. Some can take their eyebrows for granted and others are surprised that there is a hair restoration technique to treat their eyebrows. The eyebrows frame your face and can draw attention to your eyes, but the absence of them can become a distraction.
Why are my Eyebrows Thinning?
Potential causes for thinning eyebrows include:
- Medication use
- Underlying medical condition
- Hormonal imbalance
NeoGraft Eyebrow Restoration Procedure
NeoGraft eyebrow restoration is a FUE procedure performed in our office, only requiring local anesthesia. The procedure involves the extraction of individual hair follicles and transplanting them into your eyebrow area. These extracted hair follicles are normally taken from the back of the scalp because they are similar to those that naturally grow in eyebrows. The pinpoint extractions are so small (0.8 mm) that the harvest site does not require any stitches and they heal quickly.
Prior to the transplant, you’ll be able to review the surgical marking that outline your new eyebrow shape. You’ll work with our team to make any changes to ensure we achieve your ideal result. Once the harvested hairs have been prepared as grafts, Dr. Hannan meticulously and strategically places them into the eyebrow area. She takes great care to follow the natural growth pattern and create an even distribution of hair. Depending on the extent of restoration that is needed, your procedure could last 3-4 hours.
With no incisions or sutures required, you will not be left with the linear scar that is seen after the strip method hair transplant. In fact, because of the technique there will be no visible scarring resulting from NeoGraft FUE eyebrow restoration.
Since the procedure is typically performed with just local anesthesia, most patients are able to drive themselves home afterward and most are comfortable returning to work within a day or two.
