Eyebrow Transplant

Why Should I Consider an Eyebrow Transplant?

A person’s eyebrows can have a huge impact on the appearance and overall character of their face. Although eyebrow trends may come and go, thick brows will always lend a certain expressiveness, as well as leaving many more styling options available.

Thick eyebrows are so appealing nowadays.

However, age, genetics and lifestyle factors can all cause a person’s eyebrows to thin or disappear. There are a variety of measures to mitigate the effects of thinning eyebrows, or to improve their appearance. An eyebrow transplant is one of these.

SHIFT provides eyebrow transplantation as part of its select range of highly specialised services. The SHIFT team’s training and talent means they are perfectly equipped provide the best eyebrow transplant results for male and female patients.

What makes the natural results?

To achieve the most natural result in Eyebrow Transplant, we operate by paying attention to the millimetric many and horizontal direction while opening the channels and the use of delicate and single grafts at the tail end and the starting points of the eyebrows. Apart from these, chosen hair properties have an effect on naturalness, e.g. white hair, curly hair, very thick hair.

What causes the eyebrows to thin?

There are many different factors that can cause the eyebrows to thin out. These include age, genetic factors, illness, the side-effects of medication and also intensive medical treatments such as chemotherapy, in addition to skin conditions such as eczema and psoriasis, and pregnancy and childbirth. Localised burning and scarring can also lead to hair loss in the eyebrow area.

In addition to this, a range of lifestyle factors such as stress, exhaustion and poor nutrition can contribute to hair loss in the eyebrow area and elsewhere. Years of over-plucking or threading can also deplete the brow area.

How can thinning eyebrows be addressed?

As with scalp hair loss, there are a range of options which can help to mitigate eyebrow hair loss, such as topical medication and nutritional supplements. Maintaining a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle can also go some way towards helping overall eyebrow health.

Those faced with eyebrow loss can also try a range of aesthetic solutions, such as pencilling, semi-permanent make-up and micro-blading. However, the effects of these treatments will normally diminish with time. An eyebrow transplant represents the most permanent solution for thinning brows.

How does an eyebrow transplant work?

As with a scalp hair transplant, eyebrow transplantation involves extracting grafts from the patient’s ‘donor area’, which will normally be at the back of the head, before implanting these into the microchannels that have been opened in the patient’s eyebrow area. These grafts will normally consist of one single hair. An eyebrow transplant will normally take around four hours and will involve relatively short recovery time. It can take up to one year to see the full effects of the eyebrow transplant, but in the vast majority of cases, the results will be permanent.

Although an eyebrow transplant is a relatively minor procedure, it demands a considerable degree of skill in order to obtain the best results. The opening of the microchannels, in particular, will have a significant impact on the overall appearance of the eyebrows and is something which requires a high level of training and experience. In addition to this, considerable artistic talent is required to create the most aesthetically-pleasing results for each individual patient’s features.

SHIFT has excellent experience in this area and is able to work closely with each patient to create a personalised treatment plan which will yield the best aesthetic and clinical results for them. Patients in SHIFT’s capable hands can feel confident in achieving beautiful brows which will frame their face perfectly.
