Can you transplant an eyebrow?
Yes, eyebrow transplants work nicely. There are a series of problems that hair taken from the back of the head causes when it is moved to the eyebrow:
- It will grow long, so it must be cut on an angle a few times a week.
- It may take on the thickness of the hair behind the head. If the eyebrow has finer hair, than this might be a problem.
- There is always a risk of a change in character of the hair itself (unusual).
I love doing eyebrows on men, as most men want bushy or wider eyebrows. For women, we must be selective and sensitive to hair type. The photos below are of one of our male eyebrow patients who just came back a little over a year after his transplant. On the left is the “before” photo, on the right is the “after” photo.
