About Eyebrow Hair Loss
Eyebrows are an important part of facial symmetry. They contribute to the aesthetic appearance of both men and women. Eyebrows frame the eyes and are one of the first facial structures our eyes are drawn to on a person’s face. Many individuals feel that their eyebrows are too thin due to genetics, damage from over-grooming, or loss of hair overtime. Eyebrows can lose their natural, full appearance for a variety of reasons: congenital causes, trauma burns, auto accident, chemical or electrical burns, radiation or chemotherapy, medical, autoimmune or systemic disease, obsessive compulsive plucking referred to as Trichotillomania, or from normal aging.
While there are cosmetic methods to camouflage thinning eyebrows; such as permanent make-up (micropigmentation tattooing), they are not without limitations. Many of the complaints about these procedures are that they don’t look natural. At Chernoff Cosmetic Surgery in Indianapolis, Dr. Greg Chernoff offers patients natural-looking eyebrow transplantation.
About Patchy Beards & Facial Hair
When letting facial hair grow out, some men may find that some patches may not be as thick as others. Some men may even naturally grow very fine facial hair. With respect to facial hair, some men they are unhappy with the way their mustache and/or beard grows out as it may be uneven or some areas may be thicker than other areas. For those men who want to sport facial hair but are worried about how it looks Dr. Chernoff can help with facial hair restoration to help men look their natural best.
What Is Follicular Unit Eyebrow Transplantation and How Is It Performed?
Follicular Unit Eyebrow Transplantation can often restore eyebrows to their natural youthful appearance. Dr. Chernoff begins the procedure by harvesting hair follicles from the lateral part of the occipital region of your scalp. He selects this area because it contains the greatest number of single hair follicular units with the smallest diameter.
Proper angulation of the hair follicle is the most important feature of any eyebrow transplant. The hair in the upper part of the central edge of the eyebrow usually points upward to the hairline, while the hair on the lateral aspect points horizontally, towards the ears. The hair in the upper part of the eyebrow should be pointed slightly downward and the lower portion slightly upward, so that they will converge in the middle, forming a slight ridge and resembling the pattern of a feather.
Dr. Chernoff’s eyebrow transplant patients have a quick recovery time and no visible scar on the scalp. He has performed numerous eyebrow transplants with outstanding success.
What Is Follicular Unit Facial Hair Transplantation And How Is It Performed?
Follicular Unit Facial Hair Transplantation is an exacting process that involves harvesting a man’s scalp hair and implanting it areas of the face that are thinner and sparse. Follicles are harvested from the back of the scalp and re-implanted in areas of the face where hair may require greater density. The newly implanted hair will grow similar to that of normal facial hair. As the hair grows in, it can be groomed and maintained like the native facial hair.
Dr. Chernoff performs this outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with an oral sedative. Depending on the patient’s skin, the procedure can take between 2 to 5 hours. Patients will need a day following the surgery for recovery. Most patients are able to resume most activities the second day post transplantation.
Transplanted hairs are expected to fall out around 4 weeks following the day of the surgery, but will regrow in around 3-4 months. Once this hair has been transplanted, it becomes difficult to tell apart from the original. This transplant has permanent results, leaving you with fuller, denser facial hair.
Dr. Chernoff specializes in hair loss and restoration using Follicular Unit Hair Transplant and has performed thousands of successful procedures.
