Hair Transplant to Other Areas
Hair Transplant to Brows
Eyebrows define expressions on our faces. While we usually take well-shaped eyebrows for granted, not everyone is endowed with eyebrow hair that can be shaped and structured at will. Hence, eyebrow transplants are a smaller but equally important component of hair transplant surgery.
Do your eyebrows need enhancement? There are many reasons that justify a transplant to the brows. These include losing eyebrow hair because of:
- Hereditary complications.
- Repeating and irregular plucking.
In the situations highlighted above, your eyebrows can be restored in two main ways:
- Transplant of hair follicles that are extracted from areas such as the scalp via a traditional FUE.
- Flap Surgery, which involves replacing the eyebrow skin with a flap of skin from the scalp that has regular hair growth.
Eyebrow transplant has a number of determinants that govern the choice of treatment. Consult Dr. Agullo for a detailed understanding of this procedure.
Hair Transplant to the Beard
Facial hair transplant is fast becoming a popular treatment among males. While facial hair growth is a given as soon as a boy hits puberty, in many situations this growth is not quite ideal.
For instance, you may need a beard transplant if you lost facial hair because of burns to the face or simply because a thick beard is not in your genetic makeup.
A facial hair transplant procedure is painless and can be completed in 3 to 4 hours. Using local anesthesia, Dr. Agullo will skillfully implant hair follicles on your face that will then have a healthy and strong growth.
Even though a beard transplant is easy and simple, the procedure takes a lot of skill and patience because the surgeon has to analyze different parts of the face to decide which ones need the most follicles. As a general rule, a mustache needs approximately 300-500 grafts while a beard will require 700 grafts per cheek.
Hair Transplant to Scars
Scarring is often the main concern in cosmetic procedures. If you have never gone through a cosmetic surgery before, the first question you will ask Dr. Agullo is whether you will have to live with post surgery scars all your life. While advanced procedures and state of the art equipment often promise minimal scaring, the possibility of their appearance can never be overlooked.
It is very common for patients to experience unsightly scarring from facial procedures or facelifts when not performed properly. Hair loss after facelift procedures can be easily treated with hair transplantation.
Cosmetic Surgery offers various ways to reduce the effect of already present scars. Because the shape, size and cause of scarring will be different in every case, customized treatments are the best way to diminish them. There are two main ways to deal with deep facial or scalp scars.
- Scar Revision: A scar revision surgery first aims to restitch or close a scar that resulted from improper suturing or usage of an outdated cosmetic procedure. A technique called the ‘trichophytic’ is used for scar revision because it relies on closing the skin in a way that hair starts to grow through the scarred tissue.
- Scar Camouflage: Scar Camouflage is the prescribed method to reduce the appearance of scars when scar revision is not possible. In this technique a deep facial scar is hidden or camouflaged by promoting hair growth around it.
Ugly and deep skin scars can easily be fixed with these two techniques at the Southwest Plastic Surgery Practice. If you wish to finally get rid of the scars from your last cosmetic surgery or perhaps, a childhood fall, contact the Practice today to schedule an appointment with Dr. Agullo.
