    Eyebrows and Eyelashes

    Eyebrows and Eyelashes are important to facial symmetry. It is an important element to patient self esteem. Persons with damaged or injured eyebrows and/or eyelashes may feel very self-conscious. Hair restoration can often restore damaged or disease eyebrows and eyelashes.

    There are multiple causes of eyebrows and eyelashes loss. They include physical trauma such as MVA, laceration from sharp objects, thermal or electrical burns and chemical injury. Systemic (autoimmune) or local disease, congenital deficiency, self-inflicted obsessive plucking (trichotillomania) are also common cause of loss of eyebrows and eyelashes. Finally. medical and or surgical treatments with radiation, chemotherapy and surgical excision may also cause loss of eyebrows and or eyelashes.

    The different causes of loss of eyebrows and eyelashes must be treated prior to surgical restoration of damaged eyebrows and eyelashes. There are patients with no eyebrow/eyelash loss but still seek eyebrow/eyelash enhancement for cosmetic reasons.

    We believe the ultimate purpose of transplantation of hair to eyebrows or eyelashes is to recreate in a natural contour and to conform to the natural symmetry of the surrounding hair and face. The donor hair must be fine and project in the same direction as the surrounding hair. We utilize one to two micro graft in order to adhere to the contour of the native brow.

    Eyebrow restoration can be accomplish either with transplantation with mini and micro graft or strip graft transplantation. Patients with damaged recipient site from radiation or serious scaring at the recipient site can be corrected with pedicle scalp-to-eyebrow pedicle flaps.

    Post operative itching is not uncommon. Steroid may be prescribed to relieve itching.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    The good thing about hair transplant procedures is that it is designed to provide a permanent solution to patients who are suffering from hair loss. However, the success of the treatment weighs heavily on the care provider. Dr. Colin Hong is a trained and experienced hair transplant surgeon. He is committed to treating hair loss with the latest research and technology to ensure that optimal results are achieved.

    FUE hair transplant procedure gives you natural-looking results with a shorter recovery period. Dr. Colin Hong and his team have many years worth of knowledge and experience and can provide you with a customized transplantation.

    In the few months after the FUE procedure, shedding of your original hair will likely occur before the new hair will start to grow back at the transplanted site. This is normal and is only temporary. You will receive post-operative instructions from your surgeon to ensure optimal healing and care after the surgery. However, if you continue to experience hair loss, the hair at the transplanted site can also be affected.

    Since the entire hair follicle is removed and placed in a new location, it will likely not grow back in the old one. Most cases where there is a re-growth of hair is when hair follicles are not completely removed from your donor area. However, your surgeon will only harvest from areas where the effect of the removal of hair follicles is barely noticeable.

    FUE’s major advantage over other hair transplant procedures is that it does not leave noticeable scars on your scalp. Provided the procedure is performed by a hair transplant specialist, the result will likely be a natural-looking hair restoration without you worrying about any visible scars at all.

    Though FUE is minimally invasive, there may still be a bit of discomfort during the procedure. Usually this occurs during the administration of local anesthesia. However, we will provide measures to reduce this discomfort as much as possible, such as with the use of a mild sedative beforehand.

    Normally, the ideal age for an individual to undergo FUE is when the thinning of hair is not too advanced. There needs to be adequate hair density at the back of the scalp for follicles to be harvested for transplant. With significant hair loss and balding, there may not be enough hair for transplantation.

    Hair follicles collected from the head are ideal for transplantation back to the scalp. This is because the nature of hairs varies through different parts of our body. However, if there are no available hair follicles on the head of the patient, beard and chest hair can be used as a substitute for hair restoration on the area where the patient desires. Please speak with Dr. Hong to see if this is a possibility for you.

    Yes. FUE can be a complex procedure, but with the combination of advanced technology and the skill and expertise of Dr. Hong and his team, the surgery can be very successful. FUE is currently considered one of the most advanced and successful hair loss treatments. Dr. Hong has been performing FUE for many years, and is committed to helping patients regain their confidence.

    One of the main goals of FUE is to provide a permanent solution to individuals who are struggling with hair loss. If the procedure is performed by a qualified hair specialist and post-instructions are followed carefully, the chances of a permanent result will be high.
