Eyebrows define the eyes and offer an aesthetically-pleasing form to enhance the facial features. For some people, eyebrows are too thin to create the desired look without “penciling” in their shape. If you have thin or bare eyebrows and you want them enhanced, an eyebrow transplant may be right for you. City Facial Plastics offers eyebrow transplants using advanced FUE and FUG methods for natural hair growth.
Dr. Gary Linkov is a hair transplant specialist as well as an experienced facial plastic surgeon. He understands the aesthetic appeal that a well-formed eyebrow can add to the face. With his understanding of facial artistry and the use of the latest hair transplant technology, he creates beautiful, thick eyebrows in the desired shape.
Thin eyebrows occur for many reasons. Some people genetically have sparse hair on their eyebrows, which can become even thinner with age. Others may have used electrolysis to remove eyebrow hair and now want it restored. Hormones, scars, injuries and other factors all have an impact on eyebrow thickness and shape. With hair transplants, eyebrows can be restored, regardless of the reason why it is needed.
How are Eyebrow Transplants Performed?
To restore eyebrows through transplantation, hair follicles are harvested from the scalp and placed on the eyebrow. While scalp hair transplants are usually completed solely with FUE (follicular unit extraction), eyebrow transplants may use FUE or FUG (follicular unit grafting). Both use scalp hair to create thick, beautiful eyebrows that will continue growing for a lifetime. The procedure can be performed in one visit with immediate results. It is virtually pain-free with little to no recovery needed.
