Advantages and Disadvantages of Eyebrow Transplant

An eyebrow transplant improves the shape and fullness of your brows by transferring hair follicles from another part of your body, most commonly the back of your scalp. It’s a long-term solution for thin or missing brows.

Advantages of eyebrow transplant-

The best advantage of a brow hair transplant is that you now have your brows back. Your brow density will improve, which will improve the appearance of your face. Always choose this procedure because it is also permanent. Eyebrow transplants are permanent and will last for many years. This one-of-a-kind technique is an excellent way to conceal scars and burn marks around the brow area. It is possible to make subtle changes to the overall shape or length of the brows while improving the density with this surgery. The procedure produces extremely natural-looking results with a high density of hair.

Disadvantages of eyebrow transplant-

It will take six to twelve months to grow new hairs, as with other hair transplant procedures. So it is longer if you are impatient and want quick results.

Trimming is required every one to two weeks to achieve optimal aesthetic appearance, which can be time consuming, especially for busy people. Don’t worry, because the skin of your brow area will influence the transplanted grafts after a year or two, slowing the growth rate to that of natural brow hairs.
