DR. EPSTEIN: Hi! I’m Dr. Epstein. We just finished an eyebrow transplant, just over 450 grafts on our 30-year-old patient that had plucked her eyebrows. We just finished, not more 15 or 20 minutes ago.
You can see we restored all the density. She had a tattoo of permanent makeup done several ago but you can see the after, how nice it looks.
Are you happy?
PATIENT: I’m very happy! It turned out perfect!
DR. EPSTEIN: The grafts were placed individually, 0.5 mm recipient sites. She is probably not going to look any worse than she does right now. She is basically presentable.
About 225 graphs were placed into each eyebrow and she will be presentable really tomorrow or the day after just looking like her eyebrows are a little bit pink.
For the most part she is great!

I really want to get an eyebrow transplant I’m just worried it won’t turn out or something will go wrong; so what are the risks and side affects during or after the eyebrow transplant?
Any surgical procedure has risks- relatively speaking, there are few medical risks with the eyebrow transplant due to the minimal invasiveness.
We are just basically done with Karen’s eyebrows and you can see the arch that was created and how nicely we filled in the entire eyebrow along this side and there is a little bit of touch-up. We are going to do just a few more on this left side. You can see there are a couple of holes that I made but for the most part we have been able to restore some pretty nice symmetry. She was quite asymmetric to begin with. We have given her a slight arch which compliments the natural shape of her eyes and you can basically see what we were able to do. We placed a total of around 670 grafts total, each one with like 335 or 300 or so grafts into each eyebrow and this is what she has. This is how it should look. We have checked and done a couple of touch-ups but you can now see how they look.
