Eyebrow transplantation is similar to hair transplantation but on a much smaller scale. Dr. Koher can restore the eyebrows length, arch and the natural angles of each individual hair in the eyebrow. Giving you a beautiful cosmetic result.
What about cutting, coloring, or perming my hair prior and after surgery?
The best thing is to have your hair colored, permed, and/or cut 2 to 3 weeks prior to your hair transplant surgery. After the surgery, we ask that you allow at least 6 weeks before you get a hair cut or color. Perming your hair should be discussed with Dr. Koher at the time of your surgery. Six weeks may not be a sufficient amount of time after your surgery.
Can Hair Transplants really help women?
Hair transplants is your own natural, growing hair placed in the hair loss areas. It is nature perfect fit. We are rearranging the hair follicles to areas that are thinning or have complete hair loss. The hair that is transplanted grows just like your own hair because it is your own hair. You can not tell the difference between the existing hair or the transplanted hair.
