As always, there are a few surprises. For instance, the article about eyebrow restoration is nearly five years old, yet it continues to attract a lot of attention. As noted in that article, modern hair transplantation techniques — including binocular microscopy, acute angling and dense packing — make the successful reconstruction of the eyebrow possible. Binocular microscopy allows the precise trimming of single hair follicular units devoid of any excess tissue but with all the essential anatomic structures that ensure it’s growth. Acute angling to make sites that are nearly flush to the skin, so that the hairs lay nearly flat. The use of micro blades and small caliber needles allow the creation of sites that are close together and heal rapidly.
Artistic eyebrow restoration is a highly nuanced procedure that demands technical skills, artistic knowledge and experience. Since this is obviously a topic that the hair loss community continues to be interested in, we will return to it in the coming weeks.
