Eyebrow transplant
Chrissy Teigen

Source: Het Nieuwsblad, 23/11/2021

Topmodel Chrissy Teigen underwent an eyebrow transplantation. Not to fill up her hair, but to empower her brows. The famous model shared her precedure on her social media. Also in Belgium there are experts who can restore eyebrows. How does this work and what are the costs?

It's a striking message from the 35-year-old model and wife of John Legend. She showed her followers the procedure for a hair transplant on her eyebrows via Instagram. Teigen said she was tired of always having to brush and draw her eyebrows when she went out on the street. “I just want to go out without makeup. So I am very pleased with this surgery.”

The procedure is not performed very often in Belgium, says the European authority in hair transplants doctor Bijan Feriduni. “It's not a question we often get. But it happens. Especially women who are getting older and losing their eyebrows in a natural way. Or women who have epilate too much in the past. Epilation causes traction alopecia. If a hair is pulled too much, the follicle dies.”

Men also sometimes end up with Dr. Feriduni, but more often after an accident. “A cut or scrape that interrupts the eyebrow. Then we often only have to fill a small part.”

In fact, eyebrow transplantation is no different than hair transplantation. At the back of the head, above the neck, a strip of hair is first removed under anaesthetic (the FUT-technique). Then each individual follicle is placed with an incision in the eyebrow zone. “A very time-consuming operation,” says Feriduni. “Not only for the patient, but also for us. For a complete eyebrow transplant we are soon at 4 to 5 hours, myself and three assistants. That is because each hair must be selected very carefully. They have to grow in a certain way and it can only be one and not two in a follicle.”

And that comes with a price tag. In our country, the procedure will cost between 2,000 and 3,200 euros.

“Eyebrows are important to your face. They frame your eyes the way your hairline frames your face. Without eyebrows you quickly look older and more tired”, says the specialist. Immediately after the procedure, Teigen already announced that she is delighted with the result. In the last photo in the evening she gives a warning to young girls. “Teenagers! Stop plucking violently like I did!”
