When people think about hair transplant surgery in Palo Alto, they very seldom think about eyebrows. However, eyebrows are an extremely important feature of an individual’s face, and when they begin to experience some loss in this area it can seriously impact their lives or perception of themselves.
If you are one of the people who are suffering from this condition, then do not worry because you are not alone and there are procedures available to help you. For those that are considering pursuing this line of treatment, then here are some commonly asked questions about eyebrow hair transplants and the answers that go along with them.
Who Is Suitable for It?
This treatment is generally open to the vast majority of the people who enquire about getting it done. If you are beginning to see some thinning in your eyebrows then ask your physician about pursuing eyebrow replacement procedures. As long as you do not have any bleeding or clotting problems then you should be eligible for it.
Where Is the Graft Taken From?
The answer to this question depends on whether you are a female or a male, and the extent of your eyebrow loss. For women, the healthy follicles are generally taken from behind the ears or the area on the upper thighs due to its level of thinness. However if you are a man then the follicles can come from virtually anywhere on the body, depending on the thickness of the existing eyebrow hairs. Either way the procedure is expected to take between 50-100 follicles, but can be even more than this if you are suffering from extreme eyebrow loss.
How Long Does It Take?
Luckily this procedure is actually quite a simple and fast one. The extent of your eyebrows that need to be replaced will obviously affect how long the total operation takes, but generally speaking you can expect it to be about 5-6 hours. One of the main benefits of it being so quick and simple is that the patients are almost never required to spend the night in any facility, and are free to go back home that same evening.
When Does It Begin to Work?
At around the 3-5 week mark after the surgery has been completed you will see some shedding occur, which can occasionally cause some individuals to panic, but this is very normal. After that, you will see noticeable growth at around 4-6 months, and by 10 months your eyebrows should be restored to their former glory.
