So How Does An Eyebrow Transplant Work?
Both have equal results however, the FUT may only be conducted by a registered Surgeon where an FUE may be conducted by a GP.
The Eyebrow Transplant Procedure
Ok, so as you would expect we would need to see you for an initial consultation. I might add this is a free service. This is where we can assess you situation and confirm your suitability.

Furthermore one of the trichologists will run through the procedure and answer any questions or concerns you might have. Oh yes, I will advise you on the cost to.
Our resident Eyebrow Transplant surgeon Dr Luciano Sciacca will meet you before the procedure to confirm medically, that you are suitable. Also, it’s important to me that you feel comfortable with the Surgeon.

The Eyebrow Transplant Procedure
There are two types of procedure. FUE and FUT. With both procedures there is a need to shave a small area at the donor site as the diagram shows. With the FUT, also known as the strip graft, we taken a strip of skin which is closed and stitched. In FUT cases, the shaved area is closed up hence you will not have to wait for the hair to grow. The FUE is a process where we take individual grafts from the shaved region. Once taken the area is left to heal and for the hair to grow. Within a week or so the shaved area will cover any surgical marks left.
Injections and Incisions
Once the local Anaesthetic is administered Dr Sciacca will create the incisions. These are the new invaginations that the hairs will be implanted later. Every patient is different. The number of incisions will be exact so as to ensure we take only those hairs that are required.
The term local anaesthetic means that the patient will be fully awake and aware of everything that occurs. Most importantly, you will feel no pain. You will be relaxed and enjoy some music or watch a movie. Or like many patients you may just fall asleep. This choice is yours.
Extraction from the Donor area
Dr Sciacca will take the required amount of hair carefully and meticulously, using a punch that extracts the hairs from the shaved area. Care must be taken to ensure no other grafts are damaged. The hairs are counted and shaped if required to ensure they fit into the incisions appropriately. This is a role that only a doctor should do.
The hairs are placed in a sterile solution for a limited time until we can implant the grafts.
Implanting the Grafts
Ok, so we are now ready implant the grafts. This occurs after lunch. it would be normal to extract grafts containing 1, 2, 3 and maybe 4 or sometimes 5 grafts. The key with creating a natural look is deciding where to place the grafts. generally the 1’s will be placed around the boarder, with this higher numbers in the main body to ensure the thickness.
It is the technicians that implant the grafts. It takes many years of training to become a master at such a procedure. Also, a good level of dexterity and a steady hand.
Once the grafts have been placed under the strict supervision of Dr Sciacca, its time to go home and relax. Before that though it’s time to go through the after care. This normally takes around 30 minutes. Dr Sciacca will go through how to wash, and look after the grafts. I will give you an information package on everything that you need to know.
I will apologise now but once you leave I will be in contact with you on a daily basis certainly for the first week. You are under the care of my clinic hence I want to know that everything is going to plan. You are invited to return to the clinic any time. Normally we expect patients to return after 10 days for assessment and if required to help you remove the scabs that form. After the scabs are removed, you can relax a little more as you have passed the point of where there is a potential danger to the implanted grafts.
Now its time to sit back, relax and wait for the grafts to grow. Remember this can take up to 12 months. in some cases it may take longer. I will give you mine and the surgeons 24/7 phone number to call at any time.

How much time do I need to take off work?

So as an afro hair patient the eyebrows just like that of Caucasoid and Mongoloid hair types fall foul of misadventure. Furthermore, it is believed by many that afro eyebrows are not something that should be attempted when discussing transplants.
Well, let me tell you that this is wrong. Afro eyebrow transplants are an up and coming trend. I will say though that attempting afro eyebrow transplants takes skill and experience. The Holborn Clinic has experience and knowledge when conducting such a procedure so you are in safe hands.
So if you are afro, or mixed heritage then perhaps you would like to give us a call and we can perhaps help you get those brows that have been missing for so long? So, maybe we will speak with you soon.
Firstly, Afro Eyebrow surgery is a popular trend. Also, like other skin types hair is transferred from the donor site to the eyebrows. So full eyebrows can be obtained using this method. So what are the differences? most noteworthy, the hairs are very curly at the back of the head. Furthermore these are as a rule the only hairs that we would transfer. I often get asked if we can take hairs from other parts of the body for the eyebrows. It is possible but unlikely, as there is a much greater risk of rejection. Furthermore, the hairs transferred will remain curly and will also need to be trained and trimmed regularly. The overall result will be fantastic full eyebrows but you will need to look after them. Most of you girls will probably smile here as this is normal part of your daily routine anyway.
