Women get fuller look with eyebrow transplants

Hair transplants are moving from the top of the head and the hairline to the eyebrow.

The bushy eyebrow look of Hollywood celebrities and fashion models is making some women with thin brows wish for a thicker look.

Eyebrow transplants have been around for a while. Doctors have used hairs from a woman's head, but the look didn't seem natural. A new process lets them use hair from a woman's arms, legs or nape of the neck where body hair is thinner.

Doctors say it makes for a nicer look above the eye.

"It much more resembles the natural eyebrow," Dr. Sansusi Umar said.

Surgeons must transplant each hair individually. The whole process takes about 2.5 half hours.
