This surgery is a miracle! I have more hairs, a better eyebrow shape, and most of all I am so comfortable with my eyebrows that I don't constantly worry about them (are they straight, too skinny, too much makeup, non existent without makeup). My new brows look natural, feel good and I couldn't be happier.
Traveling for the surgery was easy--flights, hotel, taxis to and from the office. The staff and Dr. Epstein were pleasant, helpful, and kind despite my own insecurities and nerves. The actual procedure didn't hurt (nor did the healing) and though it did last several hours, I was very comfortable the whole time. The staff even stayed late to make sure I was completely happy with the results and to make sure my taxi came.
After a couple of days of light swelling and very light bruising (typical for me) everything went according to how the Dr said it would. The crusts fell off then my brows looked fantastic--the only bad part was that next the news hairs shed and I felt like I looked worse than before (after having a glimpse of what my new brows should look like I could hardly wait!). But just like the new hairs did what they were supposed to do, they started growing back!
At 11 months now I am so pleased with the results I can't believe I didn't do it sooner! It took me nearly two years of "thinking" about it--if you are thinking about this surgery, DO IT. I just spent the last week at the beach with family and friends and no makeup--something I would have worried about before, but thanks to my new brows I felt great and looked good too. Thank you to everyone!
