When most people think of hair loss, they picture a middle-aged balding man. After all, generalized hair loss is also called “male pattern baldness”. However, hair loss doesn’t just affect middle-aged men, and it isn’t always limited to the scalp; it affects men and women of all ages and can even affect facial hair.
Just as hair loss isn’t limited to the hair on your head; surgical hair restoration isn’t limited to the scalp. In some cases, a person who experiences thinning of the hair on their scalp may also experience thinning of their eyebrows.
The same surgical techniques used to restore hair on the head are also used to restore facial hair.
Where does the donor hair come from?
Donor hair (to be transplanted) is usually removed from the back of the scalp using a strip or punch harvest method, although other areas of the scalp may be used based on the best suitability/density match.
How is the donor hair transplanted?
Harvested hair is transplanted one at a time, using a technique called follicular unit grafting. During the procedure, the directionality of the remaining hair is taken into account to achieve a natural look.
