Model and cookbook author Chrissy Teigen has updated her look with thicker, fuller eyebrows. On November 20, the 35-year-old shared three Instagram Stories showing the outcome of an eyebrow transplant surgery. “I never wear makeup if I can avoid it, so I was so excited for this eyebrow transplant surgery,” she wrote. “They take hairs from the back of your head!!”
Teigen expanded on the experience, saying that her brows were still “a little dark from the pencil” that was used for her surgery but also noting that “it’s so cool to have brows again.” And just in case the trend of thin eyebrows returns, Teigen added a warning: “Teens: Do not pluck them all off like I did!!”
This isn’t the first time Teigen has discussed her cosmetic procedures publicly. In September, she shared that she’d undergone a buccal fat removal, which involves removing the buccal fat pad below the cheekbones to make the face appear more sculpted, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. “Since I quit drinking, I’ve really seen the results. And I like it,” she said in an Instagram Story.
The plastic surgeon who worked with Teigen on both procedures, Jason Diamond, M.D., also posted about the procedure, sharing a photo of the celebrity’s eyebrows on Instagram and writing, “Eyebrows play a huge part of the facial aesthetic. They frame the eyes and can either be an asset to the eyes, or they can be the annoying part of your morning you have to spend ten minutes filling in. I know too many people, entire generations, who either overplucked brows as part of the trend or are simply experiencing eyebrow thinning with time. #EyebrowTransplantation is a procedure where we mutually agree on shape, density, etc., and skill takes it from there.”
