Subject: The eyebrow reconstruction should restore an eyebrow with a natural shape and with matching hair direction.
Method: We describe the micrograft hair technique for eyebrow reconstruction, using either hair from the opposite eyebrow or hair from the scalp. We illustrate our technique with three clinical cases: a traumatic eyebrow injury, a burn scar and a progressive hair loss.
Discussion: We insist on the advantages of this technique which is simple, "taylor-made" and which allows to choose the hair direction according to the eyebrow topography. The micrograft hair technique has many advantages in comparison with scalp strip grafting or hair-bearing island scalp flap techniques.
Conclusion: The eyebrow reconstruction using micrograft hair technique is a simple effective technique offering a better cosmetic result than usual techniques by achieving a natural hair direction and density.
