What are Eyebrow Transplants?
Hair grafts are usually taken from the nape of the neck. Once the hair grafts are removed, they’re placed in a storage container with a chilled saline solution for up to an hour before they are implanted in your eyebrows by the surgeon. You won’t feel anything during the procedure since eyebrow transplants are usually done under local anesthesia.
Following the procedure, the newly transplanted follicles are left open, and a crust forms around them. A few days after the procedure, these crusts should fall off as part of the healing process.
It may take up to five days for the area to bruise and swell. Ideally, a saline spray should be applied every two to three hours. Up to five days after surgery, your doctor will likely prescribe painkillers, antibiotics, and steroids for oral consumption. There will be some hair fall out after implantation, but hair regrowth in the area should begin within a few weeks.
