“Why an eyebrow transplant at age 68? Simply put; to remove some stress from my life. The happiness I get from my eyebrows is an added bonus.
Going to the dentist, the doctor, trying on clothes, and even answering the doorbell was stressful. I was always worried that my pencil eyebrows would be smeared or worse rubbed off. Since I was an eyebrowless person, I was always very self conscious and embarrassed by the thought of not having eyebrows. I was on my way to the ER for treatment, and I remembered that I had forgotten to pencil on my eyebrows. We had to go back home so I could put on my eyebrows. Both my husband and my son insisted that this should never be a choice that had to be made. That I get “real” eyebrows was a choice I could live with. I decided that they were right.
Dr. Ziering was just wonderful, and so was his staff. The “Sneak Peek”procedure allowed me to see what my eyebrows would look like the same day. The procedure was very relaxing and did not hurt. I even got to watch “Pretty Woman”, a favorite movie of mine, during the procedure. The treatment I received was wonderful. I asked the staff and my son, the Doctor, if everyone was treated as wonderfully as I was. The answer was “yes, of course.” My eyebrows look fabulous, and I never have to worry about them.
My husband of 48 years has seen me with real eyebrows for the first time in the fifty plus years we have been together. He loves my eyebrows almost as much as I do.
What a pleasure they are – a wonderful gift! Any regrets? Yes, why did I wait so long. I should have done years ago. Don’t think about it – just do it – NOW! It’s so liberating!!
PS. I went for my first eyebrow waxing – how exciting it was.
