Here’s two more eyebrow transplant-related emails I’ve received…
In 2002 I cut my eye brows off. But they grew back very thin some parts did even grow back, like the ends. Only the inner part would grow but not so thick. Anyway to date they are not growing at all. My hair line has also thinned out about an inch. I do not know what is going on but I am tired of drawing it on. Please help.
Eyebrows can be successfully transplanted, if the eyebrows you had have not returned after a couple of years. The eyebrow hair is taken from the scalp hair, and as such will have to be trimmed about three times a week and cut on an angle for hair shape. I posted a blog entry recently about this: Eyebrow Transplants. You need to be evaluated for the hairline loss. Read my responses addressing female hair loss, as they do apply to you.
I am considering eyebrow hair transplantation and I have many questions. Does having permanent makeup interfere with the procedure? Should it be removed first or will it cause scarring to the follicle? Also, does the transplant have to follow the original eyebrow hairline or will it grow in any follicle (if I wanted it slightly raised for a more youthful appearance for instance)? Do eyebrow transplants yield a high success rate? I noticed you listed some special summer prices but they were specified for the strip method. What is the cost for the FOX method. Finally, I live near Riverside Ca, zip code 92313, is there an office near me?
Permanent makeup is cosmetic tattooing and is permanent by its nature. It will not impact an eyebrow hair transplant. You should be evaluated first, before any surgery is considered. Eyebrows can be angled for more lift, but it is difficult to angle them for less lift. The success of eyebrow transplants are high. NHI’s summer fees have been reduced by 10% but the FUE approach has not been discounted and still is priced at about twice the price per hair/graft as a traditional strip method of transplantation. Our closest office to you would be in the Beverly Hills area.
