What is Eyebrow Restoration?

The hair that creates your eyebrows is different than any other hair on your body. What’s more, as you age the thickness and natural arch of your eyebrows can change. Thinning eyebrows are a common concern and can be a result of:

  • Years of plucking or waxing
  • Damaged hair follicles
  • The natural aging processes

Eyebrow restoration is a procedure that can restore the appearance of thinning brows to create balance and facial harmony. When selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon or hair restoration specialist for eyebrow restoration, experience is important. Dr. Wolfeld understand how to create facial harmony in performing advanced eyebrow restoration.

How is Eyebrow Restoration Performed?

Before your eyebrow restoration procedure, you and Dr. Wolfeld will work together to determine the shape and arch of the eyebrows that will best balance your facial structure. Eyebrow restoration is performed by removing hair follicles from another location on the body and transplanting those follicles to the brows. Follicles are typically harvested from a location directly behind the ear in order to provide discretion. Dr. Wolfeld will then carefully place the follicles in the new location, each carefully placed at the right angle, precisely shaping your eyebrows to create balance and beauty.

What Can I Expect During Eyebrow Restoration?

Eyebrow restoration is performed in the serenity of our mid-town Manhattan offices under local anesthesia. Hair follicles will be removed from the designated area. These hair follicles will then be placed in your eyebrows with precision, creating natural-looking, full eyebrows in areas where they have thinned. Due to the meticulous nature of our eyebrow transplant in NYC, the procedure can last up to six hours.

What Can I Expect Following Eyebrow Restoration?

Following your eyebrow restoration procedure, you may experience a bit of swelling, redness, or crusting. This is normal and should subside within a few days. The newly placed hair follicles will go through a natural “shedding” phase before they begin their cycle of regrowth. This should not be cause for alarm. While you will notice an immediate difference following your eyebrow restoration procedure, final results will take up to six months to be evident.

How Can I Care for my Eyebrows as they Begin to Regrow?

It is recommended that you carefully brush your eyebrows in an upward motion to encourage them to grow in the appropriate direction. Application of a firm gel will further encourage this growth. We recommend that you trim your eyebrows once every ten days.
