About Neograft Eyebrow Transplant
The eyebrows play a crucial role in facial aesthetics, contributing significantly to the overall harmony, balance, and attractiveness of the face. Some of the important things that eyebrows do for the face include:
- Framing the eyes: Well-shaped, attractive eyebrows can draw attention to and enhance the beauty of the eyes, thereby helping to create a focal point on the face.
- Expression and communication: Eyebrows play a key role in non-verbal communication, allowing individuals to express a myriad of emotions. Changes in eyebrow position and shape can significantly influence the perception of facial expressions.
- Facial symmetry: Well-defined and symmetrically shaped eyebrows contribute to overall facial symmetry.
- Youthful appearance: Defined and full eyebrows suggest youth. In contrast, eyebrows may thin or lose definition as individuals age.
- Unique aesthetics: The shape, thickness, and arch of eyebrows vary among individuals, and these differences can serve to accentuate and compliment other facial features such as the cheekbones and jawline.
At Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center, we understand the impact that your eyebrows can have on facial aesthetics. If you desire fuller, more defined eyebrows, or seek to restore lost eyebrow hair, our Neograft eyebrow transplant can enhance the shape, density, and overall appearance of your eyebrows.
What does a NeoGraft eyebrow transplant involve?
Our skilled physicians will carefully assess your facial features and work collaboratively with you to customize your new eyebrow position, shape, arch, and density, catering to your unique facial features and preferences. Hair follicles are then harvested from the back of the scalp, where the hair is genetically resistant to thinning—this ensures that the transplanted eyebrow hairs retain their thickness and resilience. Using precise techniques, tiny, custom-designed recipient sites are created in the eyebrow area. The angle, direction, and density of the transplanted hairs are carefully considered and placed in order to mimic the natural growth pattern of eyebrow hairs so that you can achieve natural-appearing results. The use of individual hair follicles ensures a natural result that seamlessly integrates with your existing eyebrow hair. This careful process leaves no scarring or evidence of harvesting at the donor site as well.
What is the recovery like following a Neograft eyebrow transplant?
There is minimal downtime following a Neograft eyebrow transplant. While some initial redness and swelling are common, most patients can resume their regular activities within a few days. Following the procedure, your physician will provide detailed aftercare instructions, which include avoiding strenuous activity and keeping the eyebrow area clean and moist. The transplanted hairs may undergo an initial shed in the weeks following your treatment. After around 3 months, they will enter a growth phase, during which new hair will start to become visible. The final results of your eyebrow transplant will gradually become more apparent over the following months.
How long do the results of a Neograft eyebrow transplant last?
Once the transplanted hairs are established in their new location, they continue to grow like natural eyebrows. The results are long-lasting and, in most cases, permanent.
What is the advantage of a Neograft eyebrow transplant over eyebrow tattooing or microblading?
Our physicians at the Gateway Aesthetic Institute and Laser Center perform hundreds of cosmetic tattoo removal cases each year and can speak to how problematic tattooed and microbladed eyebrows can be. As you can see, the pictures below further attest to this. Some of the most common problems patients experience with tattooed or microbladed eyebrows include:
- Wrong shape
- Maintenance is required for microblading, creating new opportunities for wrong shape/asymmetry
- Colors change or fade over time
- Allergic reactions to pigment
Although laser tattoo removal is often an effective solution for undesired tattooed or microbladed eyebrows, multiple treatment sessions are required, recovery can sometimes involve significant swelling of the eyes, eyebrow hair will bleach when treated with certain lasers, and the red and swollen skin can be difficult to camouflage for the first several days following treatment. In some rare instances, the tattoos cannot be removed with lasers, necessitating tattoo excision or ablation for definitive treatment.
For all of these reasons and more, a Neograft eyebrow transplant allows you to circumvent all of these potentially horrific and disfiguring problems so that you can enjoy natural, healthy, long-lasting eyebrows that compliment your unique features.
