Eyebrow transplantation is a precise science. It is up to very skilled surgeons along with the patient's own preference to determine the best look to achieve. Then it is up to the surgeon to achieve that look. The surgeon will commonly use the FUE or the FUG/strip technique to complete the Eyebrow Transplant. This treatment will give the patient natural real living and growing eyebrows that will last a lifetime.
What is FUG/Strip Technique?
The Follicular Unit Grafting/Strip Technique is when a surgically removed strip of skin with a healthy population of hair on it is removed from an area on the body. It is then viewed under a microscope to determine the best way to dissect it for implantation. Once it is dissected, it is then ready to be implanted into the receiving area. When it is implanted it is secured in a way so that the hair will grow through the scar tissue so that the scar will never be visible.
What is the FUE Technique?
The Follicular Unit Extraction Technique is a process where a surgeon takes an instrument and cut out circular spots on the back and sides of the head. These areas are chosen because they usually have healthier hair growth than other areas on the head. Once enough grafting specimens are collected the areas where they were taken from are left open. They are 1mm in diameter and they heal in a few days. A good candidate for FUE is someone that has thin hair. Since the round scars do not show up or aren't as noticeable as the line scares that the FUG Technique leaves behind. Most people with thin hair prefer the FUE Technique.
During your consultation, Dr. Jeffrey Epstein will discuss with you your own personal preferences so that he can create your own personal look. He will use anywhere from 50 to 500 grafts to create for you a completely customized eyebrow that you will love. Your comfort is ensured by giving you a sedative and administering you anesthesia by using a computerized device called The Wand. The Wand ensures your comfort by administering anesthesia and making sure that you aren't able to feel any sensation.
When deciding where to take the grafts from consideration of how thick your hair is, is taken into consideration. Thinner hair is needed to match the hair of your eyebrow. Hair will probably be taken from the lower part of the back of your head. After the grafts are removed the doctor then prepares the receiving areas. He will decide the best way to implant them for the best growth possible so that they will conform to the natural growth of your eyebrow's natural growth. He will also ensure that you get the shape of eyebrow you agreed upon during the consultation.
What Is The Procedure Like?
A procedure usually lasts around 4 hours and it results in very mild discomfort. You are given a sedative, as mentioned before, and The Wand is used to make sure you cannot feel the procedure. The grafted hair is implanted piece by piece and it is given plenty of time to set. The doctor will check the progress of the hair multiple times and make sure that it has adhered to its implanted area. During this time the shape of the eyebrow and the fullness of the eyebrow is discussed by the doctor and patient to make sure the desired result has been achieved. The customer's happiness is the number one goal of Doctor Jeffrey Epstein's and he will not stop until he has achieved perfection. The whole procedure usually takes about 5 hours to complete. Once the customer is thrilled, the patient is discharged.
What Should I Expect After Surgery?
After surgery, you can expect some crust around the newly implanted hair in your new eyebrow. Some redness or pinkness can also be experienced for about a week after the surgery. This can be covered up by a little bit of makeup if needed. Some patients might experience significant bruising and swelling around the eyes, but it is more common to only have a little bit of bruising. This will go away in a few days. If the FUG Technique was used then the sutures will dissolve on their own in the matter of several weeks. They do not need to be removed. You should expect a fine scare from using the FUG Technique. If you used the FUE Technique then you should not expect any scaring and there are no sutures.
What Happens After The Transplant?
After the transplant, the newly transplanted hairs will fall out at about 2 to 3 weeks after the surgery. Don't panic though. They will grow back in at about 4 months after the surgery. Once they grow back in they will increase in thickness. Since they are hairs that were transplanted from the back of your head, you will need to thin them out regularly. It is suggested to thin them out once a week.
Are There Risks?
This is a very safe surgery, but no surgery is without risks. Some common complications that occur are prolonged pinkness, widening of the surgical site, and failed growth of the implanted hairs.
