Eyebrow grafting is a great option for those looking for ways to improve their facial balance. Some people are born with light-colored hair that does not show off their eyebrows and some people are born with very small or asymmetrical brows. As we age, we undergo hair loss and a common area that loses hair is the eyebrows. Permanent makeup may be a popular solution but does not offer a natural result.
At the Wolin Plastic Surgery Center, we offer our patients a natural solution to their eyebrow concerns: NeoGraft.

About NeoGraft Hair Transplant for Eyebrows
Traditional hair transplant methods often require a large incision and result in a long linear scar on the back of the head.
NeoGraft is a revolutionary system that is an FUE technique. FUE stands for Follicular-Unit Extraction and is a method that allows for individual hair follicles to be removed without the need for incisions or stitches.
The NeoGraft device implements the FUE technique to help relocate your own hair follicles to your eyebrows to help you maintain natural, full brows. This method of hair transplant is not provided by most plastic surgeons.
Dr. Wolin is one of the few surgeons who has learned how to perform NeoGraft so he can bring his patients their best solution to thinning eyebrows.
FUE eyebrow restoration will fill in your eyebrows and help you appear younger and more attractive in no time!
FUE is one of the best hair replacement systems today! This is a no-touch method that helps provide healthy results. You also get to come away from the treatment without any scarring!
The NeoGraft procedure is a combination of hair transplanting using a fine needle for extraction and then planting the individual hair follicles with magnification into a natural brow angulation and pattern. This procedure uses a NeoGraft handheld device to remove hair from the back of the head where the hair shafts are fine and delicate.
The NeoGraft machine is a handheld device. Dr. Wolin uses the device to strategically extract hair follicles. These follicles will be transplanted to your eyebrows through a fine needling process.
Your eyebrows frame your face and help accentuate your eyes. Don’t spend up to fifteen minutes each morning sculpting your eyebrows and filling them in when one treatment can speed up your makeup routine and give you the eyebrows you’ve always wanted!
Eyebrow grafting has many advantages. The primary one is that NeoGraft is a non-surgical eyebrow replacement treatment. No incisions need to be created to harvest hair follicles as in many other hair restoration processes. No scarring will allow you to enjoy your hair and eyebrows, no matter how they are styled!
Other benefits include the impressive results and fast recovery time NeoGrafting provides. This hair loss treatment will give you thick eyebrows that you want to show off in no time!
You can also return to work the day after treatment, although we often encourage patients to take a couple of days to rest and relax.
Eyebrow grafting is an excellent treatment and is commonly sought out by both men and women. Men and women alike undergo hair loss in their eyebrows. Dr. Wolin has an excellent understanding of the differences between male and female eyebrows. He will perform the NeoGraft technique carefully to ensure your natural eyebrow border is filled in and will place the hair follicles in a pattern that is unique to you and your gender.
If you are self-conscious of your eyebrows and want more full, thick brows, eyebrow grafting will improve your facial features!
Dr. Wolin will instruct you on how to prepare for the hair transplantation treatment and recovery period.
In your private meeting with Dr. Wolin, you will be able to discuss your concerns about your eyebrows and what you would like accomplished with a NeoGraft treatment. He will examine your brows and ask about current medications, general health, allergies, and treatments performed to your eyebrows. This information will help him gauge if you are a candidate for eyebrow grafting.
Once deemed that eyebrow grafting is a good option for you, Dr. Wolin will tell you about the details of the procedure. A sketch will be made of your eyebrows and Dr. Wolin and you will decide on your new eyebrow shape. He will make a point to answer your questions and concerns.
Our goal at the Wolin Plastic Surgery Center is to help our patients understand the details of their procedure and feel confident in their treatment plan! Before your consultation comes to an end, you and Dr. Wolin will choose a date for your procedure.
Non-surgical hair replacement with the FUE system will give you your best results in no time!
The best way to ensure this outcome is to take the proper steps to make sure you are in a healthy state before undergoing the procedure. Alongside Dr. Wolin’s instructions, you will want to get a good night’s rest and stay hydrated. The morning of, make sure your hair is clean and dry. Do not apply active ingredient products to your face and do not apply makeup.
The whole procedure will take between three to eight hours and will be performed in two steps using a local anesthetic.
The first step occurs when you arrive at the Wolin Plastic Surgery Center. You will be welcomed and taken back to one of our state of the art rooms. An area on the back of your head will receive a close shave. The anesthetic will then be injected into the scalp. Once the numbing effect has taken place and you are comfortable, Dr. Wolin will utilize the NeoGraft device to harvest the hair from the donor site.
Once completed, the skin will be cleaned and you will be able to return home.
The device is handheld and has a miniscule, hollow tube at one end. This tube will be inserted into the skin around the hair follicles and will remove them with a suction technique. The collected hair follicles will be placed on gauze and lined up next to each other. Once the predetermined amount of follicles are removed, your skin will be cleaned and a bandage will be applied. Usually, a lunch break will be offered to allow a break in the action.
In the second step of the treatment, your eyebrows will be improved! An anesthetic will be applied to your brows. The skin will be cleaned and once you are comfortable and resting, the process will begin. Miniscule cuts will be made in the skin in which the hair follicles will be placed.
Following the treatment, your skin will be swollen and sore. Over the counter medications can help alleviate pain. If you are sensitive to discomfort, talk to Dr. Wolin about prescription medication.
During your recovery, you will need to be careful when washing your face. Avoid getting your eyebrows wet or getting makeup on the delicate, new transplanted hair shafts. An icepack can be applied to the eyes to diminish any swelling. After a couple of days, you will be able to return to work.
You will begin to see natural results after a couple of months. You will immediately notice improvements in your eyebrows from the implanted hairs.
However, once the hair follicle has been planted in the eyebrows, the grafted hair will shed after two to three weeks. The new hairs will develop over four months and will fill in your brows naturally. These results will last for years!
The cost of each eyebrow treatment will differ based on the number of hair follicles needed to achieve the patient’s ideal eyebrows. Eyebrow grafting with the NeoGraft system will truly transform your face and help shorten your makeup routine!
