Facial Hair Transplants
In addition to hair restoration treatments for balding and thinning areas of the head, Dr. Bernardino Arocha offers advanced techniques designed to restore hair in facial features such as the eyebrows and eyelids. These facial areas are prominent aspects of one’s appearance, and many people who suffer from hair loss in the eyebrows or eyelids feel very self-conscious about the way they look. Fortunately, there are an array of options here at Arocha Hair Restoration that can provide an effective solution for these concerns with results that look natural and beautiful.
Lack of hair in the eyebrows can be caused by a number of factors, including over-plucking, genetics, trauma, and even medical conditions such as anemia or thyroid disease. Dr. Arocha can restore the hair in the eyebrows utilizing techniques very similar to hair transplantation procedures for the scalp. Natural hair taken from donor areas along the sides and/or back of the head can be meticulously grafted onto the eyebrows, where they should not only restore the lost hair but also continue to grow at a normal rate. This allows for a very natural appearance. Surgical methods can also be augmented, if necessary, with medical options such as Rogaine®. If the loss of hair in the eyebrows is noticeable but not severe, Rogaine® may be all that is necessary for adequate hair restoration. Dr. Arocha will evaluate your needs and create a customized treatment plan designed to meet your goals.
Many individuals experience hypotrichosis, a condition characterized by an inadequate growth of eyelashes. There are also those who simply have the desire for longer, thicker, fuller eyelashes without the need to constantly apply mascara and eyeliner to bring out their eyes. Eyelash reconstruction and transplantation procedures can address these concerns with beautiful results. Advanced hair transplant surgery techniques can take strands of hair from the head and relocate them to the eyelids. Once they are transplanted, the fine hairs should create a renewed set of eyelashes that appear much thicker and more dense.
Medical options such as LATISSE® – a topical solution designed to stimulate the growth of eyelashes – may also be an option to enhance the appearance of the eyelids. Dr. Arocha will talk with you about the available treatments and determine the best course of action for your unique needs.
Facial hair transplantation is becoming more and more common, and it can be very beneficial for men who would like to enhance the appearance of their beards. Hair transplants performed on the cheeks, sideburns, mustache, and/or goatee areas can provide patients with a solution to fill in certain places along the face where hair grows very thin or not at all. Like traditional hair transplant surgery, the donor hair will be taken from the sides or back of the head, depending on which areas provide the best possible match to the facial hair. After the procedure, the transplanted hair should grow like natural facial hair, and can be shaved and cared for as normal.
Whether your goal is a “hipster beard” or simply to fill in areas of facial hair that do not grow to your liking, Dr. Arocha offers advanced techniques that can help you meet your needs.
