I have been covering a scar on my eyebrow with eyeliner for as long as I can remember. If I have a “bad eyebrow day” I usually wear a hat. I have checked into permanent makeup, but I am too scared that it would make my brows look too fake. This has literally controlled certain areas in my life. I determine how my day will be on whether my eyebrow looks ok. This is a very important thing for me and I know that my self confidence would improve dramatically. Please help.
Dear Tracy - I understand your reluctance to have a tattoo to the area, given that it never truly looks natural. It is in fact possible to transplant hairs into the scar, resulting in the scar being somewhat to significantly less noticeable. For most of my patients, having eyebrows restored is an emotionally significant event. I suggest you email some photos for me to evaluate, and I will have Roxy from my office contact you with more information.
