Hello all, I recently have been performing an increasing number of eyebrow hair transplants in younger patients. Patients can lose their eyebrow hair for various reasons, the most common being, over plucking of the eyebrow hair. It is very important that patients understand that if they pluck out any of the new eyebrow hairs they have had transplanted, they may not grow back. That is why I draw out the shape of the new eyebrows I will be creating, prior to placement of the new eyebrow hairs. This gives the patient a chance to agree with the plan or advise as to how they would want the eyebrow hairs placed differently. The best method is always to use any existing eyebrow hairs as a road map to help guide the design of the new eyebrows. I also tell patients to bring photos of themselves with eyebrows, and to bring photos of celebrities or friends who have eyebrows that they like. This helps formulate my overall design plan for the individual patient. Please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions about eyebrow transplants.
All the best,
Marc Dauer, M.D.
