Chrissy Teigen debuted with new eyebrows. The model and cookbook author took to social media to share with her followers that she now actually has a new pair of eyebrows that caused her hair to be pulled from the back of her head.
In several Instagram stories that are currently unavailable, the 35-year-old woman shared a video of herself after eyebrow transplant surgery, in which she explained that new hair is taken from the back of the patient’s head and placed over the face to give fuller brows. “I never wear makeup if I can avoid it, which is why I was so excited about this eyebrow transplant surgery,” she wrote in her post-surgery photo, noting Dr. Jason Diamond and Dr. Jason Champagne.
Dr. Diamond himself took to Instagram to share a photo of Teigen after the procedure, writing in the caption: “Brows play a huge role in facial aesthetics. They frame the eyes and can be an asset to the eyes, or they can be an annoying part of your morning that you should take ten minutes to fill.
“I know too many people, whole generations, who have either over-plucked as part of a trend, or have simply experienced thinning of their brows over time. # Eyebrow transplant is a procedure in which we mutually agree on the shape, density, etc., and from there it all depends on the skill (sic). “
We reached out to Dr. Trupti D. Agarwal, Consultant Dermatologist, Trichologist and Aesthetic Dermatologist at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital, to learn more about this unique procedure. The doctor explained that this “treatment is for the restoration of hair in the eyebrow area.”

It is also necessary for congenital absence of eyebrow hair. An eyebrow transplant is usually necessary for cosmetic reasons.

What is the recovery time?
According to the doctor, the procedure is “a follicular unit transplant or follicular unit extraction.” This can be done without stitching and with minimal downtime.
“Usually hair is taken from the back of the scalp and about 50-100 grafts are used under local anesthesia. The whole process takes about 2-3 hours. Recovery times vary from person to person, but they are usually quick. After the transplant, crusts or scabs appear that fall off after 14 days. After that, the transplanted hair falls out, and after 3-4 months new hair appears. “
