Why the procedure is necessary
I contacted the Crown Cosma Clinic because I was so distressed about the way I looked. I had plucked my eyebrows from an early age and unfortunately, they hadn’t grown back. I had blonde eyelashes and barely any eyebrows. I had no confidence or self esteem and always felt ugly compared to everyone else. I felt I didn’t have a face, just lots of skin. I was also allergic to make up which made the situation even worse.
Although I was struggling with my image. I was also very concerned how I would actually look with eyebrows. Would they be too dark and masculine looking? How painful was the procedure? What if it didn’t work for me and I looked even worse after the surgery?
My husband and I sat with Dr Shahmalak and discussed the procedure, why I wanted it and how many grafts he thought I would need.
Details of the procedure
The aim of the procedure was to produce natural looking eyebrows by removing hair from the back of my head and then grafting into eyebrow shape above my eyes.
I am not aware of any complications during the procedure. I did not experience any complications afterwards.
Time taken to perform the eyebrow transplant
I think I was in surgery for approximately 3 hours
Dr Shahmalak escorted me back to my room after surgery and ensured I was comfortable and explained what to expect over the next few weeks. I was given a spray which I had to spray on my eyebrows on a daily basis. I also telephoned for general advice. I had the stitches taken out at my local GP surgery.
