Shapes in Women
Shapes in Men
The average length is 5.5cm in men and 5.0cm in women.
The maximum width is 1.5cm in men and 1.3cm in women.
Like a sword with a linear base. The upper part bowed with a pointed tail with many different shapes. The average distance between the medial brows is 2.3cm in both men and women. The entire brow in Asians is above the orbital rim; In Caucasians it is located below the orbital rim.
The caliber changes all along the eyebrow, thinner at the head and tail.
Natural directions of existing eyebrows must be taken into consideration when inserting grafts. At medial half most hairs point upward and laterally. There are at least 2 variances amongst individuals at outer half:
1. Hairs in upper and lower portion converge toward each other until the end of the tail, or
2. Hairs all point downward.
Our 3D Stick & Place Technique
Our doctor will discuss with you where to insert the hair follicles before surgery.
Ensuring patient safety is our first priority. When applying local anesthesia, we strictly follow the Massachusetts Medical Society Office-Based Surgery Guidelines ( USA ). According to this guideline, anesthesia is divided into four levels I, II, III, and IV. We use the first level when local anesthesia injection is combined with mild oral sedation. It is the safest of the four levels without any intramuscular or intravenous injection.
Our Painless Injection Protocol involves the use of the smallest 33G needles and various distraction techniques to reduce discomfort during local anesthesia injection.
S & P Technique
S & P, Stick And Place, is our special technique when individual hair follicles matching the chsracters of the original eyebrows are inserted one by one into the target area. We adjust the implantation direction and angle of each individual hair according to that of the original eyebrows. Compared with pre-made Incision when all the holes are pre-made, our result is more natural. Our doctor will let you final check the result on completion. Fine adjustments is made, if necessary, to meet your requirements.
• Result of eyebrow is permanent
• The transplanted eyebrow will grow fast and requires regular trimming
• A touch-up in density may be required in 10% of cases
• Transplanted hair will turn gray or white on aging
• Bruising +/- swelling around the eyes may ocur and take 5-7 days to subside
No dressing is required. Our center adopts waterproof eyebrow implanting technology. The face can be washed by the next day. We will provide detailed postoperative guidelines with online support. The areas should be kept moist the first 3 days. Follow-ups are scheduled the next day, after 1 week, and then after 3 months.
Smoking and Alcohol
Avoid drinking alcoholic beverages for the first two days after your procedure. Alcohol thins the blood and may cause bleeding or bruising. Please cut down on smoking for at least a week after your surgery. Too much nicotine will cut down on blood supply and affect graft survival.
When To Expect Seeing Result ?
In contrast to scalp hair transplant, most transplanted eyebrows do not shed and continue to grow. Good result in most cases can be seen after 4 months. We recommend to wait at least 6 months before considering any touch-up in density, if required
Trimming the Eyebrows
Normally, eyebrow hair stops growing when they are about 2 or 2,5 centimetre long. Since the transplanted hair is taken from the scalp, it acts as it is still on the head grows faster and longer than the original eyebrow hair. Therefore, you will need to trim them once or twice monthly. However after about 6 months, the transplanted hair will automatically slow down their growth. Trimming would then be less often.
