This 50 y/o male had gradual diminishment of his eyebrow hairs over many years down to only a few remaining ones. He had his first eyebrow hair transplantation procedure in May of 2012, with 255 1-hair grafts being placed in each eyebrow. He returned one year later and had 205 placed in each eyebrow again, for a total of 460 per side. He returned today and we touched things up with 55 on each side to finish him up. He obviously wanted a "bushy" type of eyebrow and the outline shown in one of the photos was the one we agreed upon before starting his first procedure. He is very happy with the result so far.
I feel I can do the best job and be the most artistic by using all 1-hair grafts. Obviously, some of these have to be obtained by cutting some 2-hair FU's into two hairs. What takes the most time in placing these grafts is getting the rotation correct so that the curve of the hair "flows" with the contour of the eyebrow and doesn't curve away from the skin. We use mostly 22g needle holes to make the sites.
