YOUR QUESTIONS

EYEBROW INJURY

Dear doctor,

I reported, a few years ago, an eyebrow injury, which caused scarring alopecia.

Can I undergo a hair follicle transplant, since the damage, which I treated with different drugs, has proved irreversible?

I wait for your kind opinion.Thank you.

Best wishes

A.C., Verona.

Dear Sir,

The procedure includes:

1. The reduction of scar areas.

2. The auto-graft of contralateral hair bulbs, performed under local anesthesia (taking the grafts from the healthy eyebrow, with a very fast instrument, because it has a motor).

This technique does not use occipital hair, and offers a NATURAL RESULT for the homogeneity between grafts and receiving piliferous area.
