Beared & Eyebrow Transplant

Eyebrow hair loss or alteration causes are:

  • Alopecia Areata
  • Physic traumatism (surgical, accidents), chemical (solutions) and thermal (burns).
  • Trichotillomania (a compulsion to pull our one´s own hair
  • Congenital diseases (congenital hypotrichiasis)
  • Hair removal using tweezers in order to define or give shape. When abusing it may lead to permanent eyebrow hair loss, which is one of the main causes.
  • Medical or surgical treatments (radiotherapy, chemotherapy)
  • Local or systemic diseases (SLE, Hansen´s disease, thyroid pathology)

  • One goal of transplantation of hair to the eyebrow is to recreate the eyebrow in a natural contour. The patient and physician must work together to outline the eyebrow area to conform to the natural symmetry of the patient’s face

    individual follicular units by follicular unit extraction (FUE) are removed from a donor area on the scalp, or donor areas on the body, and grafted into the surgically-prepared eyebrow site. The transplant procedure is performed by selecting a hair-bearing area of scalp with hair that is of appropriate texture and orientation to serve as eyebrow hair. Follicular units, usually of one to two hairs, are placed into incisions to achieve the desired shape or density.

    As the transplanted hairs grow in their new position they will require occasional trimming as well as "training" with gel or wax.
