How To Get Speedy Recovery After Eyebrow Hair Transplant

There are numerous why a person can have missing or misshaped eyebrows, with excessive plucking being at the top of the list. But frequent and consistent plucking is not the only reason behind eyebrow woes, because the sparse or missing eyebrow problem is bothering men as well, and men rarely get even a single hair plucked from the brow area. There are numerous other reasons as well, for example some are born with very light eyebrows – almost invisible, others lose these forehead decorations to some trauma or burns yet another group loses brows due to some underlying medical or skin condition.

Whatever may be the reason behind thinning or sparse brows, Eyebrow hair transplant in Dubai is an ideal solution for all those struggling with patchy or thin eyebrows, due to any reason. Eyebrow transplantation is a simple procedure similar to the scalp hair transplant. The surgeon extracts donor hair from the rear of the scalp and plants them to the eyebrows, paying special attention to the shape of the hair there. There are over 1 Lac hairs on the head, whereas full eyebrow hair restoration requires only 300 to 400 hairs. Therefore, extracting hairs from the scalp does not affect hair density on the head.

The entire eyebrow hair transplant procedure takes around 3 hours, and since the surgery is performed under local anesthesia, you would not feel any pain or discomfort all through the surgery. However, recovery after eyebrow hair transplant is time taking and needs your patience and care to deliver best results. It takes several months before hairs from the transplanted follicles begin to grow and final results can be seen after 8 to 12 months.

Nevertheless, by following the tips shared below you can get speedy recovery after eyebrow hair transplant:

  • Apply cold compressions: After the surgery, as the effect of anesthesia begins to subside, you will feel pain and discomfort at the donor as well as recipient site. Also expect some swelling and bleeding in the eyebrow area following the procedure. Applying cold compressions can help relieve these symptoms and minimize discomfort. However, be very gentle and avoid applying excessive pressure.
  • Take medicines: Your surgeon will prescribe antibiotics and painkillers to help relieve post-op discomfort and speed up recovery. These medicines are crucial for quick recovery. Start taking these drugs immediately after the surgery and complete the cover as prescribed by the surgeon.
  • Don’t rub or scratch eyebrows: As the wounds begin to heal, you will feel mild to severe itching in the treated areas. Resist your urge to scratch and rub no matter how strong it is. Your surgeon may prescribe you some ointment to curb itching. Apply the ointment as prescribed by the doctor.
  • Don’t pick at the scab: Tiny crusts will form at the recipient site as the incisions created for graft plantation begin to heal. Avoid picking or scratching at these scars and crusts as this may dislodge the transplanted follicles or at least damage them. Let the scab come off naturally while you wash your face.
  • Avoid blood thinners: There are several medicines that fall under the category of blood thinners, aspirin and ibuprofen being at the top. Avoid these medications for at least two weeks post-eyebrow hair transplant, as they can hamper healing process.
  • No smoking and drinking: Cigarettes and alcohol both can hamper your wound healing and hair growth big time. Nicotine in cigarettes constricts blood vessels, hampering blood supply to the newly transplanted follicles. The follicles ultimately don’t get enough supply of blood, oxygen and nutrients and fail to grow at their best.
  • Don’t touch your eyebrows: Avoid touching your face and especially the eyebrow area unnecessarily after the surgery. Your hands contain thousands of germs which can enter the operated sites and infect them, affecting the outcome of eyebrow hair transplant. Even when necessary, make sure you wash your hands with some antibacterial soap.
