Here is a patient of mine who had received 2 previous botched eyebrow transplants as well as an eyebrow tattoo from a very well known cosmetic surgeon who does not specialize in eyebrow transplants, but “sold” these procedures in his office and then subsequently had a medical technician perform the entire procedure. As you can see from the results in the “before” photos, the patient had about 10-15 hairs growing in every direction from the these 2 procedures.
When the patient presented to me (she was referred to me by a plastic surgeon patient of mine) I told her that the scarring from the tattoo and the previous procedures would affect the growth rate of the hair that I transplant (I usually see 90-95% growth of the follicles we place into healthy tissue). Because of this I told the patient she would like have to undergo 2 procedures to achieve the density she is looking for. The results below show the patient 6 months after the first procedure. She is still learning how to trim the hairs properly, but is already thrilled with her dramatic results.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
