Good eyebrow potential
Once we have extracted the required amount of hair, we transplant individual follicular units in the desired areas, to restore bald areas and create a natural-looking eyebrow. It is very important that your transplanted hairs for your eyebrows are done in a way that harmonizes well with your eyes. Once we harvest the hair we will also make sure that is implanted at the right angle to replicate original growth. Because the transplanted hair will come from the back of the head, it also requires us to match natural colour of the area being transplanted. These hairs will initially grow faster and will require trimming for the 1st year or two.

The key component in your procedure would be matching the hair caliber/characteristics as your scalp hair appears darker. Donor region would need to be either nape or supra-auriclular hair versus using leg/arm hair as they tend to be lighter in some patients with blonde or light brown hair.
