NeoGraft is a revolutionary, minimally invasive hair transplant method that brings men and women alike to Solano Plastic Surgery. Although most of our patients are concerned with thinning hair and bald spots on the top of their heads, many others need help with thinning eyebrows.
2016 is the year of the eyebrow. Cara Delevingne’s eyebrows have their own Twitter account and make the headlines almost as often as the model herself! One reason that full brows are popular is that they are associated with youth. As we age, hormonal changes cause changes in hair growth all over the body, including the eyebrows.
In this post, we talk about this more-common-than-you’d-imagine problem and tell you more about the revolutionary treatment protocol that can solve it.
What Your Eyebrows Say about You: Everything!
How important are your eyebrows to your appearance? The answer to that question is best illustrated with a photo-shopped picture of Anne Hathaway with and without her brows.
Your eyebrows are your facial signature, a distinctive feature that sets you apart from everyone else. In 2003, researchers conducted an eyebrow study. Participants were showed 25 images of celebrities without eyebrows, and then another 25 snapshots of celebrities without eyes. Study participants correctly identified about 56% of the eyeless celebs, but only 46% of those who were eyebrow free.
These results led the researchers to conclude: “Eyebrows are even more important than eyes for recognizing people.” – Yahoo Health
FUE vs FUT for Thinning Eyebrows
There are a variety of options for bulking up thin brows, including restorative cosmetics to create the illusion of thicker, fuller brow hair. For patients who want a permanent solution, hair restoration procedures are the answer. Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT) procedures were once the only option. Today, however, Solano Plastic Surgery is pleased to be able to offer Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE), a superior approach.
FUT transplantation is natural looking and does allow patients to grow their own hair. With FUE, however, Solano Plastic Surgery patients enjoy:
- No visible scarring
- Fast recovery
- Minimal downtime
- No post-operative pain
At our practice, we perform FUE hair transplants with NeoGraft. It is the only FUE harvesting system on the market today, setting a new bar for high-quality hair transplantation.
Your Eyebrows are In Good Hands at Solano
The most common problems with eyebrow hair restoration are
- Poor technique in harvesting – the hairs must be extracted with precision and care so that the follicles are not traumatized and damaged.
- Poor technique in placement – the hairs must be skillfully positioned within the brow.
It’s essential to have a skilled practitioner experienced with NeoGraft technology to perform a hair transplant in the eyebrow area.
