Currently, eyebrow transplant is getting popular in male and female patients in the Philippines because of its permanent and natural results. It is an advanced and very difficult procedure , but in the experience of Dr. Arambulo, eyebrow restoration is highly effective and successful and our patients are happy even with a single session.
Eyebrow contour provides facial expression and is significantly important to a person’s appearance, contributing to the femininity or masculinity of the face. Without them, a person feels incomplete, self-conscious, and unnatural and this can cause great distress and anxiety for the individual . Dr. Arambulo restores or augment the eyebrows either cosmetic tattoo or hair restoration surgery.
The eyebrow transplant is performed by strip follicular unit transplantation (FUT) or by follicular unit extraction (FUE). The goal is to create a satisfactory and natural-looking transplanted eyebrow shape according to the patients’ desire. The eyebrow restoration or augmentation procedure is even more challenging and difficult for patients who prefer eyebrow transplant by FUE technique.
Successful eyebrow hair transplantation depends on the following: physician’s proper patient evaluation and education, innate passion, artistry and experience of the surgeon knowledge of eyebrow anatomy, attention to procedure details with the ability to reproduce the most acute angle and direction using single hair grafts and proper instrumentation to avoid graft trauma . In the experience of Dr. Arambulo, even after just one session of eyebrow transplant, our patients are satisfied and happy with natural results.
Male Eyebrow Transplantation
The donor's 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.
Performed usually under a mild oral sedative, the 2–4 hours 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.
