Our surgeons invented and perfected this technique and surgical procedure that restores hair to the eyebrows for a natural-looking result. If you have suffered hair loss in these areas, you can finally restore hair growth using this method.

If you just wish your eyebrows to be thickened and/or reshaped, this can be done through transplantation as well. The eyebrows are an essential feature of the face that frame and enhance the eyes and general attractiveness of the face.

Cheng Plastic Surgery has two board-certified facial plastic surgeons, both of whom have extensive experience with hair transplantation. With two surgeons in our office – one male and one female – you can choose your preference and also have the option of receiving a second opinion right in the same office.

We approach every surgery individually; no two patients are the same. We spend time with you to understand how you wish to look, and we examine you carefully to determine the best surgical transplantation plan to achieve your goals.

Some patients have eyebrow transplantation concurrent with another procedure, such as hair transplantation on the head, eyelid surgery, or a facelift.

Your Eyebrow Transplantation Procedure

Most eyebrow transplants are performed using local anesthesia and IV sedation. You can go home within a few hours of surgery.

We use the latest, no excision technology in hair transplantation. Follicular unit extraction (FUE) is the technique, which creates natural and permanent hair transplantation with minimal downtime. There is no need to be afraid of a long recovery period or ugly scars. FUE is an intricate system of transplantation. It requires knowledge of hair growth patterns and some artistic sensibility on the part of your surgeon. The harvested hair follicles must be carefully handled and then placed properly so that they grow in the correct direction.

Hair is often harvested from the back of the scalp where the hair will not be missed, but hair can be harvested from anywhere on the body where the quality of the hair is viable. The hairs are then transplanted above the eye for eyebrow transplantation.

Approximately 50-60% of the transplanted hairs survive and continue to grow, so more than one procedure may be necessary. They remain in place permanently. You may need to trim your eyebrows periodically.

Recovering from Eyebrow Transplantation

A few hours after your surgery, you can go home with someone’s help. You will not be able to drive right away.

You may experience some minor soreness and swelling where the hair has been harvested and transplanted. You can take pain medication, if necessary. Usually, non-prescription medications are sufficient.

We will give you instructions for cleansing the recipient sites, and we will see you for follow-up examinations.

Practice Policy Update Regarding COVID-19

Monday, January 4, 2021:

We are open!

We cannot wait to see all of our amazing patients in our office! We are currently working with a more limited schedule than before, so please be patient as we navigate through this, together.

There are a few key changes we’ve made to our appointment protocol to ensure we are maintaining social distancing and following strict COVID-19 health and safety protocols - for you AND for us.

  1. Call our office from your car once you’ve arrived for your appointment. A staff member will come out to greet you, take your temperature and conduct a short COVID-19 health screening to make sure you are in good health prior to entering the building. Our doors will remain locked during normal business hours to ensure only those who have been screened can enter.
  2. Please arrive at your appointment wearing a mask or protective face covering. We will not be able to bring you inside the office without one.
  3. We will not have more than one patient in the lobby at a time.
  4. You will be greeted by Dr. Elbert or Dr. Jacqueline wearing their Personal Protective Equipment deemed necessary by your specific treatment. (N95 mask, gloves, face shield or protective eyewear, etc.) We ask that you leave your mask on during the procedure, and only take it off if necessary to complete the treatment.
  5. All necessary transactions will be done in the room your treatment is being performed. This will avoid unnecessary back ups in the lobby.
  6. You will then be walked out through the back door of the office. This is the best way to keep all staff and patients socially distanced while maintaining one steady flow of traffic throughout the building.

And of course, all rooms will be heavily disinfected immediately after you leave just as we have always done prior to the pandemic. Each room is equipped with an air filter as an added safety measure. We will place a major focus on high-contact areas such as chairs, doorknobs, counter tops, mirrors and more.

We are still continuing to conduct Virtual Consultations if you prefer a quicker and no-contact experience.

Virtual Consultation

For the safety of our patients and staff, we ask that you reschedule your appointment and do not enter our office with any of the following conditions:

  1. You have tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  2. You have been in close contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days.
  3. You traveled more than 150 miles or have been in close contact with someone who has traveled in the last 10 days.
  4. You are experiencing any of the following symptoms:
    • fever or chills
    • cough
    • shortness of breath
    • fatigue
    • muscle or body aches
    • headaches
    • sore throat
    • loss of taste or smell
    • nausea, diarrhea, or vomiting

Concerned about getting the Moderna vaccine after having recently received filler treatment? In some studies, it has been observed that a small percentage of the vaccinated groups experienced localized inflammation (swelling) after receiving the Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine. In said cases, all studied reactions were temporary immune responses. It has been suggested that patients refrain from getting filler two weeks before and after the vaccine. If you have any questions, please feel free to call our office!

Thank you for your continued support and we can't wait to see you again!

Kindest Regards,,

Dr. Elbert, Dr. Jacqueline and staff at Cheng Plastic Surgery
