Patient’s Question:

I am 45 and when I was younger I over plucked my eyebrows to the point of no return.  They will not grow back.  Is there anything I can do to make them grow back or is hair transplant surgery my only option?

Dr. Friedman’s Answer:

The only permanent option is hair transplantation.  Hair transplantation has been very effective in transplanting into the eyebrow area using either scalp hair or body hair.

The only drawback to transplanting into the eyebrow is that one must cut the hair more frequently than they did with eyebrow hair.

We recently had a question very similar to yours which you can read more about here. I also want to invite you to read read more information about how we treat overplucked eyebrows.
