Are Eyebrow Transplants a Thing Now?
With eyebrows at an all time famous (and all time fullest) let’s discuss the unspoken topic of eyebrow transplants. Is this even a thing?
Historically, eyebrows were fixed up with makeup (at most permanent makeup), and actual transplants were few and far apart. However, the “eyebrow phenomenon” going on for the past year, with trends such as “Instagram brow” and bushy eyebrows made famous by supermodel Cara Delevingne, have skyrocketed eyebrow surgery rates.
Type of Eyebrow Transplants
- Permanent eyebrow replacement surgery
Microblading is somewhat a step up from tattooing. The semi-permanent procedures, usually lasting around 2-3 years, involve using a special microblading pen to draw on individual strokes one by one in between the gaps of your natural eyebrows. This is often used to define or reconstruct the eyebrow, or fill in gaps for over-plucked brows.
Permanent eyebrow transplants are similar to hair transplants. The surgery involves removing one strip (or a group of strips) of skin with active follicles from one area of your body and transplanting it onto your problem area – in this case, your eyebrows. The harvesting site for eyebrow transplants is usually the back of the head. The follicles are carefully trimmed to match the brow shape before they are transplanted onto your eyebrow area.
Why get an eyebrow transplant?
With so many traditional, semi-permanent and permanent makeup options available, it’s quite easy to get your eyebrows to look how you want without surgery. One good reason to get an eyebrow transplant is to achieve a natural-looking and permanent solution for your ideal brows shape. You’ll do it once and never have to worry about the latest pen to fill in your eyebrows or worse, accidentally smudging your eyebrows makeup in public places.
The most common cause leading to brow transplants is over-plucking, which leaves the brows with gaps and “bald spots”. At times it’s also a matter of preference. If you have very thin eyebrows and you want the fuller “Cara Delevingne look” without using makeup or tattooing, then eyebrow transplant might be the only option.
