Due to an accident, a portion of one of my eyebrows has never seemed to grow back and this looks very funny. I am wondering if the eyebrow transplant would be a suitable remedy for my situation. It seems this procedure is mostly performed on women but do men ever get this procedure as well?
We have many patients here at the Foundation for Hair Restoration who elect to have eyebrow restoration performed due to accidents and other events that cause scarring or loss of eyebrow growth in either one or both eyebrows. It is always possible to create re-growth in an area that no longer has hair as long as the scar tissue still has blood flow to the region. If the scar tissue is too thick there may be a decreased percentage of re-growth or in very rare cases no re-growth whatsoever.
By having an evaluation with Dr. Epstein or another Foundation for Hair Restoration doctor, they can tell you with great certainty whether you are a great candidate or not a great candidate for eyebrow transplants. As long as there is blood flow to the area, most patients can be excellent candidates. We do perform a large number of eyebrow transplantations on both men and women. Dr. Epstein likely performs more of these procedures himself than any other hair restoration doctor in the country, which means he has a large clientele of both men and women who have had the eyebrow transplant performed.
