How do Eyebrow Transplants Work?
Eyebrow transplants are a clinically proven procedure carried out by a surgeon, in which eyebrow hair is restored using donor hair from the scalp. The result of introducing new eyebrow follicles is that your brow obtains a natural look.
What separates eyebrow transplants from other alternatives is the ability for hair growth and regeneration. This not only offers an initial aesthetically pleasing result for the client, but the option to choose the thickness and shape of the brow in the future.
We offer a range of eyebrow treatment plans for patients. After booking your free consultation and discussing your concerns with one of our doctors, the clinic will make sure you receive the correct, specialised eyebrow transplant procedure.
At our hair loss clinic in Manchester, the most common treatment for eyebrow loss is follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUE is a minimally invasive hair procedure in which hair follicles are extracted from a donor site and implanted into the brow area.
Using follicular unit extraction as a treatment for eyebrow hair loss comes with a number of advantages for patients.
- Reduced Scarring – using FUE over other transplant procedures (such as FUT) results in less scarring for the patient. This is because no skin tissue has been extracted from the donor area.
- Increased Recovery Time – as this hair transplant treatment is minimally invasive, there are no need for stitches. In fact, when compared to other treatments, there is almost no blood. Expect to be looking your best within 6-7 days!
- Minimal Pain – local anaesthetic is used on the patient during the FUE procedure, so no pain can be felt on the eyebrow or scalp area.
- Minimal Amount of Time – depending upon the severity of your hair loss, the average eyebrow transplantation takes between 3-5 hours. This means you can receive your treatment at a time that suits you! You can receive your eyebrow hair transplant and get straight back to your day.
What Should I Expect on the Day of my Surgery?
On the day, make sure you have an afternoon free as the process can usually take between 3 and 5 hours, depending upon the amount of work required. During the surgery you will be put under local anaesthetic by one of our doctors.
During the procedure, between 200 and 500 donor hairs may be needed to help your brow look fuller. 1-4 hair follicles are extracted from your donor spot and implemented using a small needle to implement new hairs one by one.
Once your process is finished, there is no need to stay at our clinic overnight. You can return home once the procedure is complete!
Eyebrow Transplant Aftercare
In the immediate aftermath of your eyebrow transplant, be prepared to expect a small amount of scarring for 6-7 days. If your donor or recipient site is feeling a little sour or delicate, don’t hesitate to contact the clinic and one of our staff will offer help!
After a couple of weeks, don’t be alarmed if your new donor eyebrow hairs grow longer than hairs already there. This is completely normal. After all, they have been donated from your scalp! Be sure to trim them occasionally and curl in order to shape and follow your eyebrow’s natural arch.
Why Have an Eyebrow Transplant?
There are a multitude of reasons as to why someone may require an eyebrow transplant. Often, patients arrive at Manchester Clinic needing an eyebrow transplant due to the following reasons:
- Over-plucking: over-plucking, or ‘Trichotillomania’, is a common symptom of patients suffering with mental disorders such as depression, low self esteem, and Body Dysmorphic Disorder. This occurs when patients extract their eyebrow hairs too frequently, causing balding in the eyebrow area.
- Scar coverage: eyebrow transplants are also common for those who have suffered facial trauma as a result of events such as car crashes, assaults, and burns.
- Cancer treatments: one of the most common side effects of cancer treatments, such as chemotherapy and radiotherapy, is a loss of head hair and body hair. As such, many patients in remission come to Manchester clinic in search of eyebrow restoration surgery.
Equally, a health problem does not have to be the only reason you ask for eyebrow transplant. Many believe this procedure as an opportunity to attain the aesthetic look you have always wanted. A full and healthy set of eyebrows has long been considered a sign of beauty, with celebrities such as Cara Delevingne and Jessica Alba lauded for their full looking brows. At such a small price there is no reason why somebody should deny it from themselves.
At Manchester Hair Transplant Clinic, our surgeons are all GMC registered and have years of experience performing these procedures and helping patients in regaining their self-confidence.
How Much does it Cost?
At Manchester hair transplant clinic we pride ourselves on offering effective and long-lasting treatments at an affordable price! The cost of an eyebrow hair transplant varies between £3,000 – £5,000, dependent upon the severity of hair loss. Included in this is a free consultation with one of Manchester clinic’s certified medical professionals and industry leading aftercare.
Due to the affordable nature of eyebrow transplants, they are quickly becoming one of many standard beauty procedures numerous women go through at least once in their lifetime. Whether be to restore their old eyebrows or create new ones.
Eyebrow Transplantation – Why Women Prefer it
Most women worry about the shape and the thickness of their eyebrows. The reasons for this vary. Over plucking their eyebrows to achieve what was in fashion fifteen years ago and failing to grow them back now that fuller “statement” brows are in fashion as showcased by supermodel Cara Delevingne and actress Keira Knightley is one of them.
However, the most common reason women lose their eyebrow hair is old age. Conditions such as Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata and “Hertoghe’s Sign” (see our Hair Loss Glossary page for more) which is cause by hypothyroidism may also result in eyebrow loss. Finally, even rubbing your eyebrows too much can lessen your eyebrow health. When women try to cover up the problem by using eyebrow pencils, the result often is even more hair loss.
So, how do women deal with eyebrow hair loss since using cosmetics may cause further harm? Some deal with it by using permanent makeup, which is also known as tattooing. Although this procedure may be safe when done by professionals and allows women to go through their everyday lives without having to cover their eyebrows with actual make up, it can be dangerous when done by amateurs. Serious allergic reactions to it may even require major reconstructive surgery. In addition, very often severe infections are caused. There have been documented cases of hepatitis C transmission because of permanent makeup procedures. Also, the result is usually quite obvious and doesn’t leave room for the individual’s hair to grow back naturally in that area or around it.
Why should I choose an eyebrow transplant over other procedures?
When it comes to choosing the correct procedure to overcome eyebrow loss, many patient consider other procedures, such as tattooing and micro-blading, before eyebrow transplants. Although these procedures may be safe when done by professionals, allowing women to go through their everyday lives without having to cover their eyebrows with actual make up, it can be dangerous when performed by amateurs. Serious allergic reactions to it may even require major reconstructive surgery. In addition, very often severe infections are caused. There have been documented cases of hepatitis C transmission because of permanent makeup procedures. Also, the result is usually quite obvious and doesn’t leave room for the individual’s hair to grow back naturally in that area or around it.
However, when it comes to results there is certainly no comparison! FUE eyebrow transplants at our Manchester hair transplant clinic transfer hair follicles from your own head onto your brow. Although more expensive than alternatives, the proof is really in the pudding! Truly restore your confidence and know your brows are not only real, but restored by certified medical professionals.
What type of people receive an eyebrow transplant procedure?
Many of our patients are predominantly women. This forms a rather stark contrast to general hair transplant surgery which is used most by men.
Perhaps the most likely explanation for this is that women tend to worry about the shape and the thickness of their eyebrows more than men. Whether it be the ageing process, or conditions such as Telogen Effluvium, Alopecia Areata, or Hypothyroidism eyebrow loss is common for everyone. Yet, what separates the sexes in requiring treatment are the measures women take to cover these conditions up. Wearing makeup and using eyebrow pencils can often result in more hair loss!
What separates an eyebrow transplant from a hair transplant?
The main difference between an eyebrow transplant and typical hair transplant surgery is the area from which donor hair is taken. Whilst a hair transplant often taken follicles from the back of your scalp, donor hairs are usually taken from the hair above your ear for eyebrow transplants. This is because the hair is often shorter and easier to train.
Our team have been involved in the hair transplant industry since 2013 and through this time we have refined our process to treat each client of ours according to their individual hair loss treatment needs. We aim to get to know, understand and set expectations for what can and can’t be done based on the amount of follicles available from the donor area.
