Eyebrow transplant for radiotherapy-induced scarring



Comments by Dr. Jiménez Acosta


Local radiotherapy for the treatment of cancer can result in permanent hair loss. In this case, the patient received treatment for a tumour in her right eye and as a result lost her eyebrow hair.
As can be seen in the ‘Before’ and ‘After’ photographs, the results of the intervention are spectacular. The hair for an eyebrow transplant is taken, as with other hair transplant cases, from the back of the scalp. Note that the transplanted hair has to be cut each 2-3 weeks as it grows faster than the original eyebrow hair.
In conclusion, a transplant is an excellent option for cases of eyebrow hair loss.
