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.

Even with social distancing, we're still here for you.

As the current situation with COVID-19 is rapidly evolving, we are continuing to make decisions regarding our practice to keep ourselves and our community healthy. As the future of this virus is uncertain, it is mandated by Santa Clara County Public Health Department Officials that all non-essential businesses close their doors and shelter in place.

Because of this region-wide order, our office will be closed as of Tuesday, March 17th, 2020 and will be rescheduling all non-emergent treatments, follow up appointments and surgeries after Tuesday, April 7th, 2020.⁣ All future in-office events for March and April have been postponed until further notice.

To those patients that need to be seen urgently for post-operative or emergent appointments - please call our office phone number. Your call will be forwarded to an employee that can best help you as we will still have remote access to our schedule. They will make the necessary arrangements to ensure you receive the proper care. ⁣

We are confident that we will make it through this and become a stronger and smarter community because of it. Yes, most people do not die from COVID-19 and many can be asymptomatic - but the sooner we isolate from one another, the sooner we can make sure those statistics do not change.⁣

As physicians, we hold health to the utmost importance so we please ask those of you who can - work from home when possible, do not go to restaurants or bars, limit your public exposure and be cognizant of those who are sick, elderly or immunocompromised. In this time, we have to not only think of ourselves, but think of those that can be directly affected and do all we can for the sake of our community, our state, and our country.⁣

We do not believe this is a time to panic - but rather the opposite. It is time to be rational and act with extreme purpose. By preventatively closing our doors for the next 3 weeks - we may be helping change the course of a potentially life-changing event in history.⁣

We look forward to a future of health and happiness with you at Cheng Plastic Surgery!⁣

Virtual Consultation

Caring and cautious regards,⁣

Dr. Elbert & Dr. Jacqueline Cheng
