Through years of plucking or just older age, your eyebrows can become thinner, and eventually it goes beyond what you can remedy with an off the shelf product. When this occurs, one option is to consider is a procedure called eyebrow reconstruction. You may have heard it called eyebrow implants, or you may not have heard of it at all.
It’s a process that removes hairs from your head and transplants them into your eyebrow, The technique is similar to the one used for hair transplants and uses much of the same equipment and technology.
Eyebrow implants are becoming more popular, so if you want to know more or are considering getting implants, here are a few Good vs. Bad points
Here are the good points:
#1 You can completely reconstruct an eyebrow.
The good news here is that even if your eyebrow has completely disappeared, this process can use hair from your head to completely recreate a full brow.
#2 The results look completely natural.
The process is completed so that the hairs are implanted in the correct position and at the correct angle to give a completely natural look.
#3 The procedure does not involve ‘surgery’
Although an eyebrow hair transplant involves microsurgery, which uses very fine needles to transplant the hair, it is not cosmetic surgery as you might know it. There are no scalpels or stitches involved.
#4 The reconstruction is permanent
Once this procedure has taken place, the implants are permanent. Once you have had your full brow constructed to your specifications, the changes will last a lifetime.
#5 No more drawing on or filling in your eyebrows
If your eyebrows have thinned or have disappeared completely, you are probably spending a lot of time and money with pencils drawing or filling in your eyebrows. This is time and money that can be saved once this procedure is complete.
It’s not all good news though, as there are a few downsides to getting eyebrow implants.
The Bad Points:
#1 The full results can take nearly a year to appear
The first piece of bad news is that it will take between 4 and 6 months for results to become noticeable, and you won’t see the full effect of your procedure for as long as 10 months.
#2 The hair keeps growing
As this hair has been transplanted from your head, another downside is that it will keep growing to the same length as your hair. This means you will have to trim the hair every few weeks to keep your new brow in good order. However, this is a small price to pay for a brand new look and more confidence.
As you can see there are few more good points than bad points, but things like the hair continuing to grow or the cost might be a deal-breaker. However, you might find that in the long term you are saving time and money by going for implants.
