    Angry Eyebrow restoration

    Almost two months ago I had both eyebrows restored. Just like a normal Bosley hair restoration I had about 100 and 150 hair placed, respectively. I need help with the fact that my eyebrows are still noticeably red and my doctor just keeps saying everyone heals differently. It's been two months!! I went to the dermatologist who prescribed me desonide ointment 0.05%. That was about two weeks ago. Still red. I feel like my doctor is avoiding me and just hoping that it goes away. This wasn't at all what I expected. I would have never done this procedure would I have known I would look like this two months later. Please advise!

    Eyebrow hair transplants are really a specialized procedure. I donít think there a many doctors who specialize in it, so itís is very different than a scalp hair transplant. Because that area is pretty delicate, I think they have to use really small instruments to make the incisions to minimize trauma and potential scaring. Has your doctor been doing eyebrows for a long time and have you consulted with perhaps a more experienced surgeon? You should go to an IAHRS surgeon who specializes in eyebrows. I only think there are a few.

    Sometimes redness can last for months, so I would not be overly concerned at this point. Things might work out just fine once the hair begins to grow and the redness subsides.

    Heres a video of an IAHRS doctor who specializes in this.

    Hope this helps you out.

    Rachel,
    It is not unusual for there to be some persistent redness in the transplanted region after an eyebrow transplant. In light skinned individuals this redness may persist longer. Usually it resolves within 12-16 weeks. My bigger concern is the number of grafts placed in each eyebrow. 100-150 grafts per eyebrow would be for a very minimal amount of eyebrow hair loss. My typical eyebrow transplant patients receive on average between 400-500 grafts per eyebrow. I hope this information helps you.

    Eyebrows are made up of courser and finer hairs. Achieving a natural look is key. Dr. Cole often utilizes a combination of CIT (Cole Isolation Technique) and BHT (Body Hair Transplant) to achieve a natural feathering of the eyebrows. Results can vary from person to person and results may take time to see. Because the hairs grow at various rates, some patients begin to see growth in less than a year.
