Cosmetic Hair Transplant Layton, UT
Using the delicate and meticulous hair dissection techniques mastered at Utah Hair Restoration, hair can be taken from one location and transferred to literally anywhere on the body. In addition to the scalp, there are several places to where we will commonly transplant hair. These locations include eyebrows, eyelashes, mustache and beard. Some of the details of how and why this is performed is outlined below.
Eyebrow transplantation is a commonly performed procedure at Utah Hair Restoration. With this operation, the eyebrows can be made to look thicker and fuller and the effects are permanent. Years ago, eyebrow style favored a small, skinny and wispy brow. This lead many to over-pluck the brow leaving them with brows that are too thin and sparse. Eyebrow transplantation is an excellent option to correct the over-plucked brow and restore a fuller brow while maintaining a completely natural look. There are several important artistic components to an eyebrow transplant. First, the shape of the transplanted brow must look natural and frame the eye appropriately. For example, a female brow should arch and taper from the middle to the side, peaking over the top of the side of the eye (lateral canthus). A male brow should sit lower and closer to the eye and should have a flatter configuration. Secondly, the angle at which the hair emerges must be very flat and almost tangential to the skin, laying down flush to the skin. This helps the transplant hair match normal growth patterns and maintain a natural look. During an eyebrow transplant, hair is generally taken from the back of the head and moved to the front. This hair continues to grow and will need frequent trimming and the brow hair will sometimes need to be trained to attain the exact shape and look the person desires.

Long, full and curved eyelashes have always been a sign of youth and vibrance and have long been a highly desired trait. Unfortunately, thin, short and stubby eyelashes can be the result of age, excessive pulling or traction, poor nutrition, thyroid abnormalities or just poor genetics and bad luck. Patchy or partial loss of the eyelashes can be caused by trauma, burns, scarring, skin cancers and more. Dr. Bitner is an expert at both diagnosis and treatment of hair loss of the eyelashes. Hair transplantation to the lashes is an excellent option to get those longer and fuller eyelashes. As with other areas where hair is transplanted, the angle the transplanted hair emerges from the skin is extremely important during lash transplantation. Do you want fuller and longer lashes and are looking for a permanent solution? Call Dr. Bitner at 801-525-8727 to schedule a consultation.
Mustache and Beard
Patchy or sparse hair growth is very common in the face. This often prevents men from being able to leave some scruff and have it look masculine, tailoring a goatee, or having a nice full looking mustache and/or beard. Facial hair is also helpful in hiding certain difficult to correct scars such as acne scarring, cleft lip scarring or others. Facial hair deficiency or loss is generally treated by transplanting hair from the back of the head and moving it onto the face. Do you have sparse or patchy facial hair and want it thicker, or do you have difficult to correct facial scarring? You may be a candidate for facial hair transplantation.
