It's changing my whole perspective of life right now...... it made me realize beauty is one of the most important thing there is in life for my happiness. Everyday right now, I hate my face lol.

I have a sneaking suspicion this is not a real situation because I can't imagine anybody outside of maybe the Kardashians would be so upset over a scar on their eyebrow. I think your issues appear to go much further than your eyebrows. I can't imagine how you would feel if you lost a body part.


Grow your bangs longer and nobody will ever see your eyebrow.

When I say "cultivate yourself" I don't mean "make more money".

Try for some of these instead:

Compassion
Spirituality
Wisdom
Generosity
Humor

A list like that will draw people to you no matter what you look like.

Yea, I am thinking the same. But in case it is, they make great scar cover makeup, and there are all type of brow products to "fill in" bare spots.

I can understand it being difficult when you have a favorite facial feature that all of a sudden changes due to surgery, accident etc. My entire chin skin/tissue was removed due to cancer and then they had to cut the neck skin and pull that up to reconstruct my chin. And yes, my chin was my favorite facial feature strangely enough.

I now have an ugly BIG scar along with a different looking chin. But unfortunately it is just life and life goes on. Also wearing bandages for months out in public (my album shows after the bigger medical bandages were able to come off along with before) wasn't the most fashionable thing ever and I was a little self conscious for awhile. I also wasn't comfortable walking around with a new forming ugly scar exposed (that I myself had a hard time looking at) that wrapped from the left side all the way up and around to the right side.

It's been exactly two years this month since I had the surgery and while my scar has not really improved, the way I look at it has (and it will for you too). Yes, somedays I think it might be nice to have scar revision surgery however the majority of time I don't even think about it now.

And like others said there are some scar cover makeups/products out there. I tried several. Dermaflage was great for a period of time however I finally realized that a lot of times trying to hide the scar looked worse than actually just letting the scar show. I was like who the heck am I trying to fool here.....No One but maybe myself ;-) So change your perception and the rest will follow :-)

Eyebrow transplant?

Microblading would be easier and less expensive.

I also happen to have a deep scar on my left eyebrow. It is so silly happened, too. I was in the bathroom and I was too hasty in bending over to grab the plug for my Water Pik. I nailed my head on the edge of the doorway and I had a black eye for about a week. It left a nice scar too. If it bothers you that much, you can use a microneedle roller that you can get off of Amazon for fairly cheap and some alcohol to sterilize it. It can help to break up the scar tissue. I just see it as another story to tell. If someone is going to reject me because of an eyebrow scar they can just go kick rocks.

And it's in the inner part of my eyebrow, the outer part would had look better.. People at work tell me "oh it's healed up!" which the black/blue eye didn't bother me because I knew that was temporary, but I know I have a scarred eyebrow.


I apply Retin-A/Hydroquinone at night to get the pigmentation to blend, and sunscreen at day.


But I am at lost at words on what to do. I even told my family, I don't see anyone right now, and they told me I am too vain. I took great in my looks, and now my face looks like a scarred cat. It's like even if I was ugly, the patchy eyebrow just distracts people.


I cannot afford eyebrow transplant.
Is this a joke??? I really prize my eyebrows???? WHAT???


You are nuts. Absolutely nuts.


2 weeks is too short. It is NOT healed yet.. Come back and complain ........ in a year.

Well LUCKILY it is a scar on your eyebrow. Fill it in with pencil and a plumper.

Heck, my eyebrows got thin as I aged, and that's what I do.
