Asian Girl Born with Very Fine Little Eyebrows...Los Angeles, CA

Hi! My family and I naturally have no hair except for head...
It's kind of good because I never have to shave or wax, but I started to draw my eyebrows at middle school. After I came to the US, I've tattooed them twice but they faded away after few years also even with tattoo since there's no hair,it gets shiny. I would not go anywhere without drawing them and when I go in the water, they get erased. All these years I'd spent so much time drawing them daily sometimes few times a day. I hated my life, it's like drawing on the blank canvas...
This Korean girl I've worked with about 10 years ago told me she got her eyebrows transplanted, they looked nice and bushy. So couple of years ago, I started to research on eyebrow transplant, and I found Dr. Dauer, he was a lot pricier than other hair transplant clinics but I only wanted the best, so I finally decided to get it done by Dr. Dauer. At the consultation, he was very nice and friendly, I felt comfortable. On the surgery day, he helped me drawing my eyebrows, he did little bit thicker than I usually drew. The procedure took all day but didn't hurt at all, I kept falling asleep, he even fed me lunch.
The recovery process for me was very painful, some said they went to work in 3 days but there was no way that I was able to function, my eyes started to swell badly and bruised like I got hit by a car, my scalp was pounding for a long time, I took every OT painkillers plus Vicodin he prescribed. This is the part that they don't tell you... I couldn't sleep with my head down or face down so I had to put the side of my face on my hand then slept. I was very careful with my new transplanted eyebrows, but they did fall out little by little like he told me after several weeks. I knew they were gonna grow back (not all of them) but I tried putting Rogain every night, tried olive oil, coconut oil to help them grow back. They slowly came back after few months.
Now it's the maintenance time, I put super hard hair gel when I went out, they grew like hair on my head so I trimmed them daily (I still trim them couple of times a week)
I babied them, they were very high maintenance.
It's been almost a year and 2 months, I can go out in public without drawing them, I can go swimming or snowboarding without worrying about my eyebrows, it really changed my life and I love my eyebrows!! And I never have to shape them or wax them either!
Thank you Dr. Dauber.
