A 40 year-old woman was suffering from eyebrow loss due to over-plucking during her teens and early 20s. Four rounds of permanent makeup sessions resulted in further brow hair loss.
Dr. Kimberly Cockerham recommended SmartGraft technology to harvest grafts from her scalp and insert them into a unique patient-directed pattern. A complete medical history was taken during the initial consultation, and no hair loss triggers were identified. She was put on a regimen of hair, nail, and skin supplements with biotin. On the day of the procedure, Dr. Cockerham drew in the patient's preferred shape and thickness for her new eyebrows, which was partially limited by the prior permanent make up location and shape.
A small region of hair from the back of her head was shaved, and, after applying local anesthesia, the area was harvested for hair graft with the SmartGraft technology. After 1000 follicle units were implanted, the donor site was dressed with gauze and a wrap. The patient was returned to a seated position and the brow transplantation was completed with artistic precision.
