Can Injectable Fillers Be Done After Eyebrow Hair Transplants?

Q: Dr. Eppley, I’ll be getting eyebrow transplants done next Monday. I’ve also been looking at getting some fillers to augment my radix (and possibly glabella). Anyway, my surgeon has advised me that it should be fine to get fillers shortly after the transplants (he suggested doing it next Friday) as they won’t be in the same area as the transplants. Just wondering though, will getting fillers so shortly after the eyebrow transplants have any adverse effects on hair growth? Thank you for taking the time to answer me.

A: In short, there is no correlation between having eyebrow transplants and injectable fillers. Even if the fillers were being injected right under the brow at the same time as having hair transplants, it would not affect the take of the hair transplants or how well they would subsequently grow. Given that the injectable fillers would be placed in the radix of the nose, away from the hair transplants, makes it even ‘safer’.
