Eyebrow Transplants in Brisbane & Gold Coast
Here in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, eyebrow transplants are designed to restore growing hair to scarred or completely missing brows. This is reconstructive surgery, NOT a cosmetic procedure to enhance existing eyebrows.
If you wish to enhance existing eyebrows, we suggest using MediciLash brow and eyelash accelerator to increase the size and quality of the lash and brow hairs.
In eyebrow transplants, the donor hairs are usually taken from the back of the patient’s scalp and, once removed, leave no visible scarring. The donor follicles are then transplanted into the “problem areas” of the eyebrows. Once transplanted, the hairs continue to grow for a lifetime and therefore need to be trimmed, typically once a month.
To provide a natural appearance, the hairs are transplanted primarily one and occasionally two at a time, in the natural direction eyebrow hairs grow. This is a very delicate procedure, requiring perfect placement of these hairs into tiny (half-millimeter) incisions that are angled at just the right direction and positioned to mimic natural growth. The use of all-microscopically dissected grafts allows their placement into the smallest possible incisions so as to minimise scarring and damage to already existing hairs.
Our eyebrow transplant procedure in Brisbane and the Gold Coast typically involves the placement of 50 to as many as 350 hairs into each eyebrow, depending upon the existing amount of hair and the desired size and density. Performed under a mild, local anaesthetic, the two to three hour procedure is essentially painless, as is the recovery period.
During the first two to four days after an eyebrow transplant procedure, tiny crusts form around each transplanted hair. Some swelling and bruising around the eyes is to be expected. The transplanted hairs usually fall out at around two weeks, then start to regrow at about three months, where they will continue to grow for a lifetime.
Here in our clinic in Brisbane and the Gold Coast, the typical cost for a full eyebrow transplant is $5500, depending on the amount of grafts (hairs) needed, remembering that each individual’s needs vary.
