Understanding Eyebrow Transplant

ht4The most common reason of hair loss in both men and women is genetic. In fact, heredity factors are responsible for most of the cases of Alopecia. Other factors include medications, illness, vitamins or minerals. People experience hair loss from different parts of the body, including beard and eyebrows.

Candidates for eyebrow treatment include a person who has little or no hair on the eyebrows. The damage of eyebrows can also happen due to over-plucking. At AHTI, we can help grow eyebrows in the shape, angle and direction you desire. Our specialists use the Ultra-Fine Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) hair transplantation procedure for eyebrow treatment. We will match fine hair from your scalp or body to your eyebrows and carefully implant them for natural looking eyebrows. This procedure gives high quality results. After the completion of the eyebrow restoration surgery, maintenance is required in the initial phases. But once the hair follicles are nicely settled, you can start enjoying beautiful and attractive eyebrows.

FUE is an advanced hair transplantation technique used today. Follicular units are extracted from DHT resistant areas (called the donor site) using a multi-step process. The grafts thus obtained are then transplanted into the patient’s balding areas. The surgery takes place using advanced extraction devices. The tools are as effective as the skill of the physician using it. It is also important to consult with an expert for such complex procedures.

Dr. Johnathan Chan is ONE of the first to specialize in hairline and eyebrow transplant hair transplant surgeon to specialise in hairline and eyebrow transplant in Australia. He specialises in cosmetic procedures, laser therapy, hair transplantation, accident and emergency, orthopaedic, general surgery and general practice.

5 Foods That Prevent Hair Loss

Showing off healthy man is every man’s dream. To make that dream come true, we don’t mind spending loads of money on a host of shampoos, conditioners, hair serums and oils.  Instead, if you focus on their diet, you could bring noticeable changes in your hair.  Experts say that the food you consume help strengthen your hair follicles as well as your scalp.

  • Eggs: Eggs are rich in biotin, a B vitamin essential for the health of hair and scalp. You can make a hair mask containing eggs and olive oil. Apply and let it rest on your hair for 30 minutes before rinsing. Other biotin rich foods are almonds, peanuts and avocado.
  • Bell Peppers: They are a great source of vitamin C, which is great for hair health. The colourful seeds ensure that there is enough iron in the red blood cells to carry oxygen to the hair follicles. Dry and splitting hairs are the outcomes of vitamin C deficiency.
  • Sweet Potatoes: Rich in vitamin A and beta-carotene, sweet potatoes work wonders on your hair.  They can be consumed by mixing a variety of dishes. Other beta-carotene rich foods include carrots, kale, asparagus and pumpkin.
  • Lentils: They are a great source of iron-rich protein, which is necessary for the growth of hair cells.
  • Green Leafy Vegetables: they are a rich source of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Either add to your meal or make soup. Consuming green leafy vegetables in any form are one of the best foods that prevent hair fall.

These five foods can work wonders on your hair as well as skin. You can enjoy a healthy glow on your face and hair by changing your food habits.

Is Hair Transplantation Answer To Baldness?

Hair transplantation is a surgical procedure used for the correction of Alopecia or any form of permanent hair loss from the scalp, beard or eyebrow. The number of people considering hair transplantation to using wigs is on the rise. This is because unlike hair replacement, hair transplantation surgery is a permanent solution that requires no on-going maintenance. In addition to hair transplant, eyebrow transplant and beard transplant are also possible.

Hair transplantation surgery takes only three days to complete. After the initial evaluation, the physician determines the actual cause of hair loss. There are many reasons stimulating loss of hair. Surgeons adopt surgery only when no medical condition is responsible for hair loss. It works well for both men and women as long as their donor area is able to yield sufficient number of hair follicles. The “donor area” is the area from which the grafts are taken. The type of graft depends on the hair type, colour, quality and size of the recipient area. After the grafts are prepared, the surgeon delicately places each graft in the area.

The cost of a hair transplantation surgery depends on the extent of surgery. The larger the amount of hair to be replaced, the higher is the cost. As with any surgical procedure, hair transplantation carries risks, including infection and bleeding. This can be relieved with medicines. However, if you are bothered due to sudden loss of hair or thinning hair, hair transplantation can significantly improve your appearance and self-confidence.
