Eyebrow restorations were originally done for burn victims and those with illnesses that prevented hair growth in the eyebrow area. Today, eyebrow restorations are routinely done as a cosmetic process for people who have thin, missing or misshaped eyebrows.
At DiStefano Hair Loss Restoration Centers, we perform a procedure called Brow Regenesis™ eyebrow restoration on a regular basis. Like a normal hair loss restoration procedure, with Brow Regenesis eyebrow restoration, donor hair is removed from a small strip of surgically removed scalp. The hair follicles are then carefully removed from the strip for transplantation into small slits created by the surgeon in the eyebrow area. This method is called follicular unit transplantation. Brow Regenesis Eyebrow restoration can also be performed using DiStefano’s exclusive Individual Graft Technique (IGT™). This procedure for transplanting the hairs is identical to follicular unit transplantation. However, the hair follicles are extracted from the donor area individually. There is no scarring, or incision. The IGT method is ideal for those who want a less invasive procedure, a shorter recovery period and for those those who wish to wear their hair short.
As with a scalp hair loss restoration, the eyebrow hair begins to regrow in as little as one month, and is fully restored between six and twelve months. The results of the transplant yield a beautifully sculpted eyebrow that looks like it has always been there.
Because the hair is transplanted from the back of the scalp, it will continue to grow like scalp hair so it must be trimmed periodically.
