Is There Any Way That a Person Suffering from Alopecia Universalis Could Have Eyebrows And/or Eyelashes Restored Using Surgery?

I am aware that it is possible for people who have donor areas of hair but wondered if it was possible with no donor areas? Thanks

The appearance of eyebrows could be restored with micropigmentation (tattoo) techniques. Eyelashes might also be done in females. See what lash liner does for you.

Hair restoration with no donor


Unfortunately, if you have no donor hair, transplantation c‚Äčannot be done. Getting hair from another willing donor cannot be done either. Treatment for alopecia universalis is not very predictable, although steroids and other treatments have been tried with limited success.
