Recently, Kelly Ripa shared on her morning show, Live with Kelly and Michael, the fact that for the past eight years she has been researching eyebrow transplantation. Due to years of over plucking, her eyebrows are not as full as she would desire and she’s interested in an eyebrow transplant.
Kelly Ripa isn’t the only one who has publicly expressed interest in eyebrow transplantation. Some celebrities have even admitted to having the procedure. These outspoken celebrities have caused a great increase in interest for eyebrow transplants.
Eyebrow transplantation is a very intricate procedure because the brow is a very sensitive and a relatively small area. For this reason, it’s important to consult with a surgeon that specializes in hair restoration surgery and has experience performing an eyebrow transplant.
The procedure for restoring eyebrows involves the individual placement of single hairs from the scalp in the natural growth pattern of the patients’ eyebrow hair. The meticulous placement of as many as several hundred hairs can restore eyebrows to their most natural appearance.
The need and desire for fuller eyebrows can be the result of genetics, over plucking, prior electrolysis, laser hair removal, medical abnormalities and trauma.
Hair transplantation has come a long way. I’ve been performing microscopic hair transplant surgery for over ten years and the tools and techniques available today allow for truly natural-looking results with less recovery time.
