Dr. Arambulo shares her experience on “FUE Eyebrow Transplant with Use of Implanter” during the 22nd Annual Scientific Meeting of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, in Kuala Lumpur,Malaysia , October 2014.
She is also contributed a chapter on her technique on eyebrow transplant in the 2nd edition of the book entitled: “Practical Aspects of Hair Transplantation in Asians.”
Eyebrow Restoration or Augmentation is a procedure designed to restore growing hair to eyebrows that are overly thin, scarred, or completely missing. The absence of hair can be due to genetics, prior electrolysis or laser hair removal, overplucking, thyroid or other hormonal abnormalities, or trauma due to surgery, burns or other types of accidentsThe donor hairs come from the scalp which, when transplanted into the eyebrows, continue to grow for a lifetime and therefore need to be trimmed initially once a week.
To provide a natural appearance ,this very delicate procedure, requires perfect placement of ultrafine hairs into tiny incisions that are angled at just the right direction and positioned to mimic natural growth.
A procedure typically involves the placement of 50 to as many as 325 hairs into each eyebrow, depending upon the existing amount of hair and the desired size and density. Performed usually under a mild oral sedative, the 2 – 4 hour procedure is essentially painless, as is the recovery period.
For the first 2 to 4 days after the procedure, tiny crusts are around each transplanted hair.
By 3 to 5 days, other than some occasional mild pinkness which fades out by the first week, patients are able to return to normal activities without any sign of having had a procedure.
Sutures that are placed in the donor area are removed after 1 week.

The transplanted hairs will stay or fall out at around 2 weeks, then start to regrow at 3 months, where they will continue to grow for a lifetime. In the experience of Dr. Arambulo, patients are happy even with one session of eyebrow transplant
