Q?

What exactly is an eyebrow micrograft for women and men?

A.

Eyebrow transplantation in women and men is technically the same as normal hair transplantation, but it only takes about 500 to 700 follicles.

Follicles of 1 or 2 hairs are necessary that are collected from the mid occipital area.

The difference is that it is not necessary to shave because we open a window in the occipital area, which will then be covered with the patient's hair. It is a transplant that is done under local anesthesia and is more difficult due to the inclination of the hair on the eyebrows. The duration is about 4 to 5 hours.

Not recommended in:

  • A hair graft with fine and straight hair can offer less satisfactory results
  • Hair loss at specific times: such as stress, postpartum, poor diet or symptoms of some medications. This is because alopecia is a temporary episode. Once it is finished, you will regain the usual state of your hair, the transplant being totally unnecessary.
  • Total baldness: Carrying out a transplant with total baldness is not impossible. However, in certain cases, alopecia may be so developed that the donor area does not have enough follicular units for an effective hair transplant.
