When full and lustrous, it’s amazing how one small strip of hairs can completely change the appearance of someone’s face to a more youthful look. The most overlooked symmetrical aesthetic facial features are the eyebrows; lush eyebrows frame the face and help us communicate through expression.
The reason behind too thin eyebrows or eyebrows that have disappeared could be age, heredity, plucking, trauma, and/or burns. An eyebrow transplant gives you growing hair permanently and restores a beautifully shaped eyebrows. Eyebrow transplant can also make thin eyebrows look much fuller or cover scars more effectively. Eyebrows, or well-sculpted brow lines give harmony and are integral part of facial balance and aesthetic symmetry. Since eyebrows have their own unique characteristics, eyebrow implants is different from hair transplants in a number of important ways.
Eyebrow hair emerge from the follicle at a very acute angle. This results in eyebrow hair to rest almost flat to the eyebrows skin’s surface. The most important aspect of any hair transplanting, scalp or eyebrows, is to follow and mimic the natural hair direction very closely. For eyebrow transplant the recipient sites should be made with an ultra fine-gauge needle to insure that the hair will lie flat. Most important Dr. Sean only inserts single micrografts into recipient sites at very acute angles. The procedure require a considerable amount of skill and experience. In case the patient’s hair is waved or is curly, it is important to rotate the hair so that curve of the hair shaft follows the natural curve of the eyebrow. Eyebrow hair transplant is unique and in many ways challenging since the upper hairs of the eyebrow are usually pointing out and slightly downward and the lower part pointing out and slightly upward, creating an interlocking ridge that gives eyebrows their fullness.
Dr. Sean will design the size and shape of the eyebrows with a marker first and will then continue with the procedure. Dr. Sean will only use very fine, soft hairs and angle them flat against the brows so they will look natural.
An eyebrow hair transplant can be nearly painless and can use anywhere from 30 to 300 follicular hair units per brow. If your eyebrows are disappearing, are misshapen, or just never appeared to begin with (as sometimes happens), stop penciling and stenciling them on every morning. An eyebrow hair transplant is a quick outpatient procedure that can be completed in one afternoon and can heal fully within a few weeks. Donor hairs are harvested from your scalp by the surgeon. With the patient under mild sedation, tiny incisions are made at a natural angle and the hairs are grafted onto your eyebrows. Hundreds of hairs can be placed during the procedure, depending on your specific goals.
Typical recovery time is less than one to weeks. During the initial recovery period, some flaking and crusting may occur near the transplanted hair, followed by slight pink discoloration. If sutures are used in the donor area, they will be removed after one week. Transplanted hair will often fall out after the procedure, but it should grow back on its own.

Insider Pages Reviews for Sean Behnam MD
I have been been losing my hair for many years now. I have been looking to do transplants for a while. Didnt know who to trust. I checked out a lot of hair transplant sites and it seems that doctors have to pay to be part of them… I went to various docs, but didnt feel the connection. I Saw Dr Behnam on Fox 11. I was impressed by his work. Im still contemplating soing surgery, but so far i’ve met with dr sean 3 times and it has been going better than expected. He listons to my concerns and every session we have spent about 45 minuted talking about my hair transplant. So far, I think I will go with him…He is more expensive than the average. but quality is more important to me. He gives his direct cell phone to me after the procedure and that make me feel comfortable. So far after 3 meeting with him, he is a 5 star….

I am delighted to write a review for Dr Sean Behnam. Very professional. I had a great experience. I had a hair transplant by a doctor in Oregon 4 years ago. it turned out to be OK, i got 1,200 grafts. I came to see Dr Sean 2 year ago because the transplanted hairs were not dense. He said he would get over 2,000 grafts. he showed me a special scalp excercise and he got over 2400 grafts. It now looks great. He was not pushy and disnt rush me into the procedure. I had to do my scalp excercice for 4 weeks before he scheduled me for the procedure. Im glad i found someone who cares more about patients than just $.

After seeing an advertisment in L A Times, I went to Dr. Behnam clinic for Hair Restoration out of curiosity. I am a senior citizen and did not make any sense for me to do hair restoration. But, after talking to Dr. Behnam I was so impressed that I decided to go for it. Now I am happy that I did it. I will highly recommend Dr. Behnam, who is a true professional and highly skilled in his profession, to any one who is thinking about hair restoration.

Dr. Ben Behnam who Dr. Sean Behnam’s brother is very accommodating and professional just like Dr. Sean Behnam. They both do a terrific job in helping keep their patients young looking and optimistic. The staff are very courteous, complian, thoughtfult and cooperative that they make me feel welcome everytime I come for laser therapy too.

As a professional, I am very cautious about who I use for any medical procedure. I was lucky enough to be recommended to Dr. Sean Behnam M.D. He is truly a Master in the Hair Restoration field. Everyting about Dr. Behnams procedures are “State of the art”. His staff of caring, professionals are the best you will find. I had the procedure done very recently and am extremely satisfied.
My transplant procedure was all done on the same day and every thing went perfectly. The entire process was carried out with pin point accuracy. And the best part was that there was Minimal Disconfort. Dr. Sean Behnam is truly “The Best of the Best”
I am a very tough critic and I Recommend him at the highest level.
