A Quick Guide to Eyebrow Transplants

Until eyebrow care became trendy a few years back, it’s safe to say that many people took theirs for granted, thinking that they’d just stick around forever. And that makes sense, given that eyebrow hair loss isn’t as common as thinning hair around the scalp & beard areas. An eyebrow transplant has become the new way to forever fix facial aesthetics. That being said, there are plenty of people that suffer from thinning eyebrows, and if you’re one of those people, you know just how much it can affect your life.

Besides having to come to terms with painted eyebrows as part of your image, you’ll have to accept them as part of your routine. One woman who was featured on the hit cable show The Doctors discussed her routine, saying it takes an hour out of her day to make her eyebrows appear natural. If that seems like a long time already, think about how it adds up over the years. There has to be another way, right? Turns out, there is! An eyebrow transplant is permanent and simply refreshing.

You might have heard of how FUE and FUT hair transplants (both of which we perform at Modena Hair Institute in Las Vegas, Beverly Hills & Newport) have saved countless people’s hairlines. However, did you know those same technologies can be put to use fixing your eyebrows?

Eyebrow transplant procedures utilize both the follicular unit extraction (FUE) method (when fewer grafts being placed), and the FUT method, also known as either follicular unit transplantation or the “strip” method, when there are more than 2-3,000 grafts.

In brief, during this type of FUE procedure, the hair restoration surgeon will first use an incisional blade to create densely grouped incisions using an outline of your ideal brow shape. From there, they’ll extract donor follicles from the posterior scalp (perhaps the chest or back if the posterior scalp isn’t fit for donation), and conclude the procedure by placing them in the transplant area. When the procedure is performed properly, you can expect your full results to appear around six months after it’s all said & done.

We understand this can be a costly procedure, even when the area being worked on is relatively small, but we feel the need to stress that you get what you pay for with a procedure like this. Sure, there are clinics out there that offer their services for relatively dirt cheap, but it’s very unlikely they’ll have an actual physician working on you, and the likelihood of unnatural results & infection can skyrocket. That’s why you need to make sure you have someone with the proper experience & training performing your entire procedure.

We don’t offer anything less at Modena. Dr. Yazdan, a licensed board certified physician, who has had years upon years of experience as a hair restoration surgeon. He makes sure that your hair is in trained & qualified hands, rather than those of assistants, throughout the procedure.

So what else needs to be said? If your eyebrows have been suffering & you’re ready to make a change, the answer to your problems is just a call away. Be sure to visit our website to learn more about what we offer, and reach out to schedule your consultation today!

Eyebrow Enhancement and Restoration

Eyebrows are perhaps the most defining feature on a person’s face. The shape of an eyebrow conveys emotion, feeling and attitude. If you have eyebrows that aren’t as thick or defined as you’d like, then eyebrow restoration may be the perfect option to consider.
At Modena Hair Institute, Dr. Amir Yazdan implements state-of-the-art surgical techniques to restore and enhance not just hair and beard imperfections, but eyebrow flaws as well. Surgical eyebrow restoration is a simple, minimally invasive procedure in which Dr. Yazdan harvests healthy, balding resistant hair follicles from the back of the scalp, chest or back area and plants them in the eyebrows, in the areas of need. The surgery can be used for enhancing existing sparse eyebrow or for recreating eyebrows in individuals who have lost their brows due to trauma, burn or accident.

Eyebrow hair loss is rare, but eyebrows with lackluster volume and faulty shape are all too common. There are many factors which can contribute to eyebrow imperfections. Over-plucking, medication, eczema, alopecia areata, and lupus are some common triggers of eyebrow hair loss. Excessive plucking is probably the most common cause of eyebrow hair loss and this is why most of the eyebrow hair transplant candidates are females. But many men over the last few years have turned to Modena Hair Institute for eyebrow restoration as well.
Many hair restoration clinics, even many good ones, are concerned only with selling hair transplants; we are about the person behind the hair transplant. At Modena we take just as much care considering the person’s aesthetics and proportion as we do the actual hair surgery itself.

The Bradley Cooper Effect: Beard Transplants in 2018

A nationwide survey in 2017 asked women how much facial hair, if any, looked best on a man. The majority of women answered that heavy stubble was the most attractive and light-stubble or clean-shaven was comparatively less attractive.
Of course sex appeal is not the only motive behind growing out a nice, clean and full beard – a man’s beard gives off many masculine and positive vibes. Confidence. Wisdom. Virility. Courage. Strength. The bottom line is that nothing quite says ‘I’m a man’ like a beard.
Yet up to 45 percent of men report being unable to grow out a full and even beard. If you’re having trouble growing a beard, or if your beard is not as full and as lush as you’d like, it can be frustrating. Patchy or uneven beards are an extremely common problem because the cheek areas have considerably weaker blood flow than the area of the upper lip and chin, causing less nutrients and beard-growth hormones to stimulate the region over time.
While some men try hair growth serums, minoxidil or other creams to counteract facial hair loss, more and more men are turning to the easier, more robust and more permanent option of facial hair transplants.
A facial hair transplant is a minor and minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that takes hair from the back of the head and transplants it into the bald or patchy areas of the beard.
Dr. Amir Yazdan, head surgeon at Modena Hair Institute in Newport Beach, California, said he has seen a 20 per cent increase in the number of procedures over the last three years as beards have become more fashionable.
A facial hair transplant is a great option for men who seek a thicker and fuller beard because a client can fill in as much or as little as is needed. Moreover, the transplanted hair can be trimmed, shaved, and groomed just as you would other facial hair. The procedure is safe, fast and extremely effective – just make sure to partner with a proper hair restoration surgeon. More on that below.
A Note of Caution
While facial hair transplants can be an extremely effective and positive experience, partnering with a well-qualified and tenured hair restoration surgeon is very important. The difference between an expertly trained and experienced hair restoration surgeon and one with little expertise and experience will mean the difference between success and failure. Top doctors know well the horror stories of patients who are sold a cheap and sweet-sounding procedure, only to have their facial hair fall off or turn inflamed later.
An experienced surgeon will be tactful in his or her artistry when positioning and directing the transplanted hairs to fit your natural hair growth pattern. When doing research to find the right surgeon, make sure to ask these key questions:

  • Do you specialize in hair transplant surgery?
  • How many years of specialized experience do you have performing FUE and FUT surgeries?
  • How much actual work is done by you during the hair transplanting process?
  • Are you certified by the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgeons?

As you continue on your hair restoration journey, know what to look for and what questions to ask. Your hair, your appearance and your confidence deserve to be in the most capable of surgical hands.

The Truth Behind Eyebrow Transplants

eyebrow transplant
“I felt completely naked without my penciled brows,” explains Ashley Wilkins, “which made life very difficult. I tried brow-growth serums, Rogaine, hair pills — anything I could think of. Nothing worked. I finally decided that getting a brow transplant was the solution for me.”
Growing up with wiry, loose or bushy looking eye brows causes many men and women to either thread them into shape, get them waxed, or constantly pluck and repluck them. All of this can cause tissue damage and unwanted friction.
Others like Ashley tried all of the above and even went further into over-the-counter products and add-ons. But these gimmicky products and services often proved to be just that – gimmicky. They aren’t permanent and require life-long corrections – like a college English paper from hell that never stops needing revision.
Doesn’t it make more sense to have one small procedure and settle the matter for good?
How does an eyebrow transplant work? The procedure involves the individual placement of single hairs in the natural growth pattern of your previous eyebrow hair. You simply create a stencil for your ideal eyebrows, petite or full, luscious or curvy, and the doctor fills out the hair pattern using your naturally growing hairs! The meticulous placement of as many as several hundred hairs can restore eyebrows to their most natural appearance. As seen below.
“I received a lot of criticism when I first told friends and family I was going to have eyebrow hair transplants,” Ashley explains. “No one understood — because their brows were all fully intact. Now, with all said and done, the friends who once judged me say I look amazing. They’ve completely changed their minds about the whole thing. I have never regretted my decision to undergo the surgery.”
“And, eyebrow hair transplants aren’t just for the over-plucked: People who suffer from scars, naturally sparse hair growth, or misshapen brows can all benefit. The process sounds daunting, but it goes by faster than you can imagine — and I promise you will never look back. I haven’t.”

Eyebrow hair transplants

Hair transplants aren’t just for scalps. Thanks to modern hair transplant techniques, other areas of the body that people often want hair coverage on, like the eyebrows and beard, are now able to benefit from transplanted hair.
Eyebrow hair transplants allow individuals to have a thicker, fuller eyebrow. The process is similar to scalp hair transplants and has had great success. Even celebrities have gotten in on this treatment.
There are many reasons one may want a thicker, fuller eyebrow.
One reason is style. Eyebrow styles have varied drastically over the past century. From extremely thin to unkempt, and everywhere in between. For many, over-plucking and over-waxing has caused the eyebrow to thin and stop growing in. The style for the past 10+ years has been a thicker, fuller brow, and it seems this style is here to stay.
Another reason is a hair loss condition known as alopecia areata. Alopecia areata is an autoimmune condition in which the immune system mis-recognizes the hair follicles as foreign bodies and tries to eliminate them.
The last reason is an underlying medical condition. Thyroid issues such as hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism often cause eyebrow hair loss.
Eyebrow hair transplants can help individuals suffering from these causes of eyebrow hair loss have the eyebrows they desire.
Eyebrow hair transplants are permanent and involve taking healthy, growing follicles from the scalp and transplanting them into the desired shape in the brow. These hairs then grow in naturally, as your own hair does.
While make-up is a temporary, short-term option many choose to achieve a fuller brow, this isn’t the right choice for everyone. Men, those not skilled in make-up, or those short on time, may not be able to fill in their eyebrows with make-up.
Permanent or semi-permanent make-up, also known as tattooing or micro-blading is also an option some choose. Tattooing of the brows often leaves behind a solid line in a grayish-black pigment. This doesn’t appear natural or hair-like, and seems to worsen as the pigment fades over time. Micro-blading is often times natural looking as it involves adding pigment in a sweeping motions that makes it appear as individual hair. Unfortunately, it’s not your natural hair and isn’t a permanent solution to eyebrow hair loss.
Eyebrow hair transplants are the only permanent solution to get the thicker, fuller, natural brows you desire. If you’re interested in learning more about this permanent eyebrow hair loss solution, give us a call for a free consultation today.
