What it is:
Dr. Wise offers eyebrow transplant and enhancement to help restore his male and female patients full, natural-looking eyebrows. Of all the different hair replacement procedures, eyebrow transplant requires the most skill, precision, and artistry. Dr. Wise brings the same eye for beauty required by the other facial cosmetic procedures he performs to his eyebrow enhancement patients.
Dr. Wise and his team take advantage of the NeoGraft© Automated FUE (follicular unit extraction) Hair Transplant System at his Wayne, New Jersey center. NeoGraft© is state- of-the-art technology which enables them to easily extract small diameter, single hair grafts or hair follicles from specific areas of the scalp, which are required for eyebrow transplants. These hair follicles produce a result wherein it is difficult to distinguish the transplanted grafts from the natural ones.
Where it helps:
Any person who has sparse, thinning or partial eyebrows is an excellent candidate for an eyebrow transplant. The cause for the lack of eyebrow hair can include any of the following: disease, alopecia areata, burns, tattoos, infections, repeated plucking, congenital inability to grow eyebrows and a genetic tendency for eyebrows to thin or disappear over time.
Dr. Wise ensures that the direction and diameter of the transplanted follicles are appropriate for his male and female patients. Men have distinctly different eyebrow characteristics from women. Men tend to have thicker eyebrows with a more horizontal pattern, while women’s eyebrows have more of an arched appearance that follows the shape of the bone around the eye socket. The hair of a woman’s eyebrow is shorter and finer than a man’s.
What it entails:
Dr. Wise and his talented team pride themselves on their technique when it comes to the most important feature of this procedure – the precision of the angle of growth of the newly transplanted hair into the eyebrow region. Eyebrows have three to four different hair growth patterns in a relatively short linear space. Starting at the hair closest to the middle of the face, the eyebrow hair grows straight up toward the scalp, but in the middle of the eyebrow, the upper portion of the hairline is pointed toward the ear with a slightly downward angle while the underside has a slightly upward angle. The convergence in the middle of the eyebrow forms a ridge and gives the line depth.
What to expect:
Procedures are done at our fully accredited surgery center located in the Wise Center for Plastic Surgery in Wayne, New Jersey, under local anesthetic. Dr. Wise ensures the patient feels little to no discomfort throughout the procedure.
Generally,150 to 250 grafts are needed for each eyebrow. After delineating the outline on the area with a surgical marker, the doctor will also make indicators of angle changes in the area. At this point, a local anesthetic will be administered to numb the areas of your face that will receive the transplant, as well as the donation site, helping the patient to enjoy a comfortable experience.
With the innovative NeoGraft©, individual hair follicles can be harvested from the donor site without any surgical incisions, using a method called Follicular Unit Extraction. This means that you will have no surgical scars or extended healing time.
Single hair grafts are needed in the brow area, so placing each one individually is critical. Dr. Wise and his team take pride in implanting each follicular graft precisely in terms of the correct angle and direction of hair growth. Dr. Wise is a true artist. He considers the patient’s face as a whole when designing the brow to set off the beauty of the eyes.
Recovery from eyebrow transplant surgery is generally very fast. Discomfort is minimal and there is little downtime following the procedure. Most patients return to their normal routine within about a few days.
Transplanted eyebrow hairs begin growing 4-6 months after your procedure, and continue growing 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 inches per month.*
