Several years ago, after waxing my eyebrows twice monthly, I decided to get electrolysis to shape them permanently. Now older and wiser, I realized that I took off too much on the ends and I am considering an eyebrow transplant. However, the remaining eyebrow is extremely thick, so I was wondering if you could so an eyebrow transplant using this excess eyebrow hair?
There are two issues here:
- Theoretically, you can transplant eyebrow hair from one eyebrow to the other, but it may produce unwanted hair loss and/or scarring in that area (even by using the FUE technique). And if you can harvest the excess eyebrow hair, it may not always grow. This in the end may leave you scarred and looking worse. I’m not trying to scare you from looking into this more, but it is a potential risk that you need to understand.
- You can have your scalp hair transplanted to your eyebrow with good results, but no doctor can reproduce the exact look of your original eyebrow… no matter how good the doctor says he/she is.
