Under a microscope, grafts are prepared and then recipient sites are made so as to determine the growth angulation and growth. The grafts are then placed on the recipient sites. Hours later, after the transplant, the eyebrows will be inspected to ensure a satisfactory density and shape. The procedure takes around 4 hours and it is done under sedation.
As a patient, you should expect minimal discomfort in the area. However, you will experience some swelling and bruise around the eyes. Hence, use diuretics to reduce the swelling. You can use sutures around the donor area to minimize the appearance of a scar if the transplant was FUG. The transplanted eyebrows will fall out after two to three weeks and regrow after 4 months.
You can undertake the procedure if you need to cover a scar or if you need to restore you eyebrow fully where you have few. Therefore, the procedure will give you a better look and can be worthwhile to you.
