Eyebrow Transplant for Scarring

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Long-term hair loss due to trauma (scarring) usually will not grow back. At this point the only solution for you may be eyebrow transplant. I specialize in advanced FUE hair transplant using uGraft, which is an ideal hair restoration technology for such cases. I advise seeking counsel from an advanced FUE surgeon.

Hair loss within an eyebrow scar

I know that quite a bit of time has passed since you asked this question.  Hopefully, you have gotten some hair growth within that scar.  If you haven't, it's time for an in-person consultation. We have had excellent results doing hair transplantation for scars and for eyebrow reconstruction.  The procedure is done under local anesthetic, as an outpatient, and the downtime is minimal.   Good luck!

Unfortunately there is no way to grow hair in a scar without a hair transplant. in some cases, a scar revision surgery may be a better option. Consultation with a facial plastic surgeon who performs hair transplants can help to determine your best course of action.
