Eyebrow hair loss can be traumatizing, and the change in your appearance can negatively affect your self-esteem and confidence. The hair loss experts at the Hair Center of Nebraska can help.
If your once healthy and full eyebrows have started thinning out and are losing their volume, an eyebrow transplant may help to permanently restore their former look. Eyebrows can lose their volume for many reasons, including natural aging, skin diseases, certain autoimmune conditions, or over-plucking. But you don’t need to accept having thin, patchy eyebrows.
During your free consultation, the Hair Center of Nebraska will analyze your hair loss and help you select the best course of treatment to rebuild your formerly full eyebrows.
How Are Eyebrow Hair Transplants Performed?
At the Hair Center of Nebraska, Dr. Daniel Gross will harvest suitable hair follicles from select donor areas. He will implant these follicles in the recipient areas within your eyebrows. Each implanted hair follicle will be placed carefully, precisely positioned, and angled to blend in with your existing eyebrow hair pattern.
The ARTAS® Robotic System uses the follicular unit excision (FUE) technique to remove hair follicles from prime donor areas around your ears and implants them in the needed recipient areas. The process is fast, precise, relatively painless, and your eyebrow transplant can be complete in a single day.
The Benefits of FUE Eyebrow Transplant
FUE eyebrow transplants don’t require long incisions in donor areas and thus provide several noteworthy benefits for eyebrow transplant patients:
- Minimal scarring in the recipient and donor areas
- Fast healing and recovery with no downtime
- Rapid return to daily activity
- Eyebrow transplant patients usually experience minimal pain post-procedure
