Learn About an Eyebrow Restoration On behalf of TVLesson.com, I’m Dr. Jeffrey Epstein. I’m a board certified facial plastic surgery who specializes in surgical hair restoration. Let’s talk a little bit about one of my favorite topics in hair restoration, eyebrow restoration. The number of people that are unhappy with the density, the fullness, the size of there are brows is significant. Usually, these are patients who 10, 15 years earlier had the opposite problem and that was or that is they were had eyebrows that were too full, they felt they were too bushy. So, as a result, many of these primarily female patients went ahead and plucked their eyebrows. And naturally with plucking comes overplucking and unfortunately, once you over pluck eyebrows that’s not uncommon that the hairs do not regrow. As a result to that, these patients are left with very thin, short eyebrows that just don’t draw the kind of attention that a natural fully set of eyebrows, aesthetic eyebrows would. Many times these patients rely and besides make up sometimes we rely on permanent make up such as tattooing that improve the situation but do not provide them with eyebrows that look natural. Someone who specializes in eyebrow transplants, I typically do two or three of these every week. And patients come from throughout the world to have these procedures done because they want it done correctly because obviously the eyebrows are sitting there in the middle of the face. The way we do these eyebrows procedures is we usually take hair from the back and then we’re able to make tiny recipient sites. These recipient sites are angled just so that the hair is growing in the natural direction of eyebrow growth such as — so that in the center aspect, the head aspect of the eyebrows, the hair is growing more cephalically or upwards more laterally they grow in a crosshatch pattern and then they taper off in the tail. These recipient sites are 0.4 to 0.5 millimeters in size and then each recipient site has a tiny hair placed into it. These hairs will then continue to grow as natural eyebrows would.
