Eyebrows are an integral part of the face. Thick and properly shaped eyebrows can change the appearance of any person. Unfortunately, only a few people may have perfect eyebrows. People may lose their eyebrows due to unsuccessful aesthetic surgeries, accidents or diseases. So, most people have to resort to different procedures to get the eyebrows of their dreams. One of the most effective ways is eyebrow transplant.
Compared to other aesthetic and cosmetic procedures, eyebrow transplant certainly gives the most natural result not temporary, but permanent. After complete healing, even the closest gaze will not be able to see anything but natural hair.
DHI method for eyebrow transplant
Eyebrow transplantation requires high precision and accuracy in execution. When transplanting follicles, the doctor needs to correctly create the necessary angle and inclination of the hairs so that the result is natural. The most suitable technique for such delicate work is the DHI method.
DHI method is the newest hair transplant method. It is so comfortable; healing after operation is much faster, in 3-5 days. The DHI method allows hair follicles to be transplanted without preliminary incisions, thus eliminating the appearance of scars. This technique allows to strictly controlling the direction of growth of the transplanted hair. With the DHI method, the survival rate reaches 98%, which is the highest possible rate for today.
Eyebrow transplant stages
An eyebrow transplant begins with a consultation at the clinic. The doctor examines and evaluates the alopecia area and the donor area. Then, taking into account the wishes of the patient, she/he creates the estimated shape and contours of the eyebrows. The patient is directly involved throughout the planning process. Also, before the transplant, the patient needs to undergo an examination and pass a number of tests.
The operation begins on the appointed day with the extraction of donor grafts. For this, hairs from the occipital or temporal part of the head are most often used. The doctor shaves off a small area and begins to extract the hair follicles. The follicles are extracted one at a time and placed in a special container awaiting transplantation.
After collecting the required number of grafts, the doctor begins the transplant. The operation is performed using special, very thin surgical instruments, leaving no marks on the skin. The doctor transplants living follicles into the eyebrow area following the natural direction of hair growth to achieve a completely natural result. Depending on the amount of donor material, the duration of the procedure will be 2-4 hours.
After the operation, the assistants treat the eyebrows with antiseptics, and the patient sees the initial result before the first dressing. The next day, the eyebrows are treated again and the necessary procedures are carried out for faster healing. In addition, the patient is given a set of special care cosmetics.
During the first 2 weeks after the operation, eyebrow care is the same as for a hair transplant: gentle cleansing, protection from sunlight and any mechanical impact. This is followed by “shock hair loss”. This is absolutely normal and you don’t need to be afraid of it. The follicles stay alive and healthy, the hairs just change. As early as 3 months after the eyebrow transplant, the patient will be able to assess the first visible changes. 8-12 months after the procedure, the patient will be able to assess the final result of the operation.
