Eyebrow hair loss is rare. However, this does not make it less disturbing for the people who experience it. There are many factors, which can contribute to the eyebrow hair loss. Over-plucking, medication, eczema, alopecia areata, and lupus are some common triggers of eyebrow hair loss. Excessive plucking is probably the most common cause of eyebrow hair loss and this is why most of the eyebrow hair transplant candidates are females. But men are also seeking Eyebrow Hair Transplant in Dubai.
What Is Eyebrow Hair Transplantation Surgery?
Eyebrow hair transplant dubai is a simple, minimally invasive procedure in which the surgeon harvests healthy, balding resistant hair follicles from the back of the scalp, chest or back area and plants them in the eyebrows, in the areas of need. The surgery can be used for enhancing existing sparse eyebrow or for recreating eyebrows in individuals who have lost their brows due to trauma, burn or accident.
Full restoration requires over 200 grafts, whereas enhancement involves transplantation of grafts anywhere between 101 to 199 grafts. Most women nowadays are also undergoing Eyebrow Hair Transplant in Dubai for touch up purpose. Touch ups are intended to give an individual his desired, perfect eyebrow shape. This subtle eyebrow reshaping usually requires 50 to 100 grafts.
Preparing for Eyebrow hair transplant
Like any other surgery, eyebrow hair transplant also requires proper preparation prior to the procedure to deliver exactly what you are wishing for. Here are some instructions that you must follow in the lead up to the surgery to make sure you get the most out of eyebrow restoration:
- Stop taking blood thinning medications, such as aspirin, ibuprofen and few other pain medications. You doctor can better guide you in this regard.
- Avoid herbal supplements as well, as most of the herbs have blood thinning characteristics.
- Quit smoking two to three weeks before eyebrow transplant. Nicotine in cigarettes hampers healing process and hair growth from transplanted follicles.
- Cut your alcohol consumption as you prepare for surgical eyebrow restoration. Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages during the last three days prior to surgery.

How The Procedure Is Performed?

The surgeon begins by numbing the donor area. The required number of grafts is then harvested, using either FUT or FUE hair transplant. Both surgeons and patients usually prefer Follicular Unit Extraction method as it is less invasive and has less recovery time. Once the grafts have been harvested, the surgeon administers local anesthesia to the recipient area. Sites for transplantation of grafts are then carefully created. The surgeon concludes the surgery by placing grafts in those sites.
