The eyebrows are an anatomical unit in their own right and are essential for a harmonious look.
Alopecia of the eyebrows or decreases in density can have several causes: repeated waxing, aging, trauma or scars, fibrosing frontal alopecia or alopecia areata.
The eyebrow transplant is a simple surgical technique which makes it possible to densify or partially or totally recreate the eyebrow region.
The principle is to take a mini scalp strip from the occipital area (at the back of the skull). The hairs are then separated from each other to obtain single-hair grafts, and then they are implanted at the level of the eyebrow region.
It takes about 100 to 150 grafts to redensify an eyebrow.
Wash eyebrows with isobetadine soap before coming to the office.
Do not consume coffee or tea on the day of the procedure.
Come with comfortable clothes.
It is not necessary to be on an empty stomach for the procedure.
The operation lasts a total of between 1h30 and 3h and is performed under local anesthesia with possibly pre-medication.
The first step is to remove the small strip from the back of the skull. This strip measures approximately 1.5 cm. This area is then closed with a suture or staples.
The second part consists of the implantation of the grafts at the level of the eyebrow.
There is no bandage after an eyebrow transplant, the grafts must be left in the open air.
Eyebrow implantation is an effective and safe technique with very few complications.
However, like any surgery, sometimes there can be.
There is sometimes an insufficient result or an asymmetry, this can be related to a bad taking of the grafts or an insufficient implantation (lack of density).
Small skin micro-abscesses can occur on some implanted follicles.
This is rare and is generally treated with local care.
