Eyebrow and Facial Hair Transplantation
Although hair restoration of the scalp has become commonplace, facial hair restoration is less well known and requires a surgical expertise that is less available to the patient.
Dr. Christopher Pawlinga has performed hair restoration surgery for over 10 years, worked with some of the top surgeons in the world and has been accredited as a Diplomate of the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery.
Dr. Pawlinga understands the technical and aesthetic aspects to correct hair restoration on the face.
Eyebrow Hair Restoration
Often because of trauma from eyebrow plucking or injury hair restoration surgery is the only permanent solution to restore the eyebrows - the upper frame of your eyes. The selection of donor hair, eyebrow design and proper implant angles all can greatly impact the final artistic result.
Dr. Pawlinga uses single hair grafts or hair follicles from the lateral part of the occipital region of your scalp, focused on the hair near the nape of the neck, because they contain the greatest number of single-hair follicular units with a diameter similar to that of the eyebrow.
Women and men have distinguishing differences in their eyebrow. Men typically have thicker eyebrows that are horizontal while women have a more delicate and elegantly arched shape. Proper angulation of the hair follicle is the most important feature of any eyebrow transplant.
The hair in the upper part of the central edge of the eyebrow usually points upward to the hairline, while the hair on the lateral aspects points horizontally, towards the ears. The hair in the upper part of the eyebrow should be pointed slightly downward and the lower portion slightly upward, so that they will converge in the middle, forming a slight ridge and resembling the pattern of a feather.
Beard Hair Restoration
With the increasing popularity of beards, men young and old are looking for a solution to fill in or thicken their facial hair. Often sideburns or hair around the mouth tend to be thinner and therefore the individual can not achieve the aesthetic density they would like.
Beard hair transplantation is a relatively simple procedure to undergo for the patient but like eyebrow hair transplantation requires surgical and aesthetic expertise to create a natural result*.
