Plastic surgeons say that they are seeing a rise in the demand for eyebrow transplants throughout the U.S. A trend for bushier brows is slowly sweeping across the nation. While many women pluck, thread, color or tattoo their eyebrows to acquire a specific shape and thickness, eyebrow transplants are a way to get the fuller brow look by bringing the lost hair follicles back.
In Great Britain, a cosmetic surgery group says that they have seen a 45% increase in requests for this procedure since 2010. Many times, individuals request an eyebrow transplant when they have accidentally over plucked the area in the past and damaged the hair follicles in the eyebrow area.
Eyebrow transplants are very similar to hair transplants. The plastic surgeon takes a strip of hair from a donor site and the strip is divided into hair follicles. Each follicle is then individual transplanted into incisions that are made in the eyebrows.
Plastic surgeons have observed that eyebrow shaping trends tend to change with the decade. Back in the 90s, thin eyebrows were in vogue. Many women may have plucked their eyebrows into a thin line at this time, only to find later on that it is difficult for them to grow a fuller brow.
If you don't want surgery, try applying Latisse (off-label) to the brows. This product is FDA approved to grow thicker, fuller lashes and can also help to improve the brows.
