Here is a male patient of mine who has a case of LPP which is a form of scarring alopecia. He has lost small patches of scalp hair in no specific distribution secondary to the disease process and he los all his eyebrow hair as well. He previously had an eyebrow tattoo and was disappointed with the look and presented to me for eyebrow transplants.
I explained to the patient that scarring alopecia is a very unpredictable process and that no guarantees could be made as to the success of the eyebrow transplant. Due to the fact that he had scattered patched affected in the scalp I felt our greatest chance of success was to perform the procedure with an FUE harvest and to find unaffected areas of the scalp to harvest the donor hair from.
I personally harvested every follicle using a 0.8mm motorized punch. We only placed single hair grafts into the eyebrows. We placed approximately 270 hairs per eyebrow.
The results here are shown after only 6 months. The patient should see some increased growth over the next 2-3 months.
The patient is beyond thrilled. The lack of eyebrow hair previously was a constant reminder of his disease process and the new eyebrows have given him a new self confidence.
Here is a male patient of mine who wanted more fullness to his eyebrows. We extracted his donor follicles via FUE. In the video the patient shares his experience undergoing the procedure and his satisfaction with the results.
Last week I had an eyebrow transplant patient who flew in from Dallas for her procedure. She had lost her eyebrows after a laser treatment gone awry that removed most of her existing eyebrow hair. Her story was featured on the local news and you can watch it from the link below. In the video she is approximately one week post procedure but you can already see the dramatic change.
Here is a eyebrow transplant video showing every step in the process of an eyebrow transplant procedure. My patient in the video is Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon Dr. Cat Begovic. Dr. Begovic is a world renown surgeon and she was very meticulous in her research before deciding to have me perform her eyebrow transplant procedure. In the video she describes the entire experience in her own words. I hope you enjoy watching.
Here is an email I recently received form a patient of mine who I performed an eyebrow transplant procedure on, and her husband received a scalp hair transplant from me.
Husband and wife patients are becoming more common in my practice and it’s always gratifying to hear their feedback.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
Husband & wife grow hair together thanks to Dr. Dauer!
I’ve been encouraging my husband for 10 years to get hair transplants. After seeing Dr. Dauer’s results in hair transplant photos I knew he was the Doctor for my husband.
The procedure was exactly how Doc explained, he was completely professional and thorough, he said that his hair would start growing within 4 months following the hair procedure and with much anticipation it did! His results were so spectacular that I decided to go in and have my eyebrows done!
Yes, Doc Dauer does eye brow transplants, lots of them from what I understand, I was sick of spending thousands of dollars with professional brow specialists & brow pencils trying to help my brows grow. There is NOTHING on the market that helped me, I tried it all, revita lash/brow, lattice, to name a few, Doc said that due to over plucking when I was younger and weak eye brows in general, all played a part in loss of eye brow hair growth over the years. After the procedure I was swollen for a few days, so I just wore sunglasses, the swelling went down immediately and within 4 months, I have full, gorgeous, model eye brows, my brow hair grows so fast I can hardly keep up with trimming! I threw out my brow pencils, brow color and haven’t been back to an expensive “brow specialist” since. I have recommended Dr. Dauer to EVERYONE I know.
Here is a patient of mine who received an unsatisfactory eyebrow transplant from another local physician. She came to me for a follow up procedure and here is her review of the procedure and her results.
Let me start by saying that this was the second eyebrow procedure I had done and I am so happy to have found Dr. Dauer for this second procedure.
Originally, I had plucked my eyebrows quite thin and had them tatooed two different times. I had some bare spots in my eyebrows that would not grow back and decided to have these spots filled in with an eyebrow transplant instead of tatooing again (since the tatoos tend to turn orange and fade away). I also had an allergic reaction to the tattoo ink the last time my eyebrows were tatooed.The doctor I chose for my first procedure was a well-known doctor in the area and had also done a great hair transplant on my brother. His eyebrow pictures looked good and his prices were good, so I decided to go to him for a patch job on my eyebrows …. not a full set of thick eyebrows at that time.During the first procedure I had the strip method done. The doctor for the first procedure did not give me enough Valium during the procedure .. I asked for more Valium later in the procedure when the eyebrow hairs were going to be placed and the doctor said he wanted me to be awake while they were filling in the eyebrows ..(I never fell asleep when he originally gave me Valium earlier in the day). This was quite an unpleasant experience for me and more Valium would have made for a much more pleasant experience.
I went home and recovered. On Day 3 of my recovery the doctor had me wash my eyebrows … big mistake! A chunk of the transplanted hair came out. I called the doctor’s office immediately. The doctor’s office assured me that the hair might still grow back and we needed a year to see ….. I was very skeptical of this and did not believe this hair was coming back, which it never did.
I still was not happy with my eyebrows and did not want to go back to that doctor to have any procedure done. It took me years to muster up the courage to have another surgery and I was only hopeful to do so when I saw Dr. Dauer’s reviews and his eyebrow photos, which looked better than any eyebrow transplant photos I had ever seen before.
I went to Dr. Dauer’s office for a consultation and he let me know that he never lets his patients touch their eyebrows until Day 8 of recovery because if transplanted hairs come out too quickly, they will not grow back. He also assured me that he would give me enough Valium to keep me comfortable. Dr. Dauer let me know he has had over 20 years experience in doing eyebrows and does at least three to four eyebrow transplant procedures per week.
I decided to go with Dr. Dauer and have him fill out my thin eyebrows versus just having a patch job on my eyebrows. I opted for the FUE procedure – less pain and easier recovery.
I brought Dr. Dauer several photos depicting the general eyebrow shape I was interested in. Even though I told him I had no idea what I was doing, Dr. Dauer gave me a chance to pencil in the shape I wanted my eyebrows to be. When it was obvious I couldn’t draw the proper shape I wanted for my eyebrows Dr. Dauer graciously took over and drew in the eyebrow shape to my satisfaction. Also, once doctor Dr. Dauer saw the eyebrow shape I wanted on the day of surgery, he put in quite a few more grafts than we had spoken about putting in at the consultation (no extra charge). The procedure went well. Dr. Daeur gave me plenty of Valium and kept me completely comfortable throughout the surgery.
Overall, recovery went well. After two weeks my eyebrow hairs started to fall out. I had a bit of redness around the eyebrow area which lasted about a month … totally normal for some people. I bought a natural eyebrow makeup containing no chemicals or preservatives from Coastal Classic Creations to fill in my eyebrows during this time. My eyebrows looked fine going out in public with the makeup, even with the bit of redness I experienced.
After about six or eight weeks my eyebrow hairs started to grow back and were mostly in by five or six months. I had a few bare spots at six months that were mostly covered over by nine months because the eyebrow hairs continued to thicken. I used Dr. Dauer’s suggested method to have the eyebrows grow in flatter instead of straight out and this method worked well.
I am very happy with the final result of my eyebrows and would highly recommend Dr. Dauer and his staff for an eyebrow transplant.
Today I received the kindest email from a well renown hair restoration surgeon regarding my eyebrow transplant results.
I will post it below.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
I have been doing hair transplants for 11 years. And yeah, I’m a Diplomate of the American Board of Neurological Surgery and the American Board of Hair Restoration Surgery, and I’m a “FISHRS,” but the truth is that I’ve not done (or seen, for that matter) more than a couple of eyebrows I’ve been happy with. I stumbled across your website in search of what a good eyebrow transplant could look like……and I was totally blown away. Your work is, hands down, the best I’ve ever seen. And the lack of swelling or bruising in the early post-op period is remarkable. What really impressed me is that, unlike some other surgeons who show the one or two good results they’ve had, you seem to have an endless number of outstanding Before & After photos.
I was going to just go on with my day after leaving your website, but I couldn’t do so without complimenting you and your team on having set the bar for eyebrow restoration. Some day, perhaps I’ll ask if I could come for a visit and learn some of your tricks.
