Doctor:How can I help?
User:On 8th January this month, I got a cut on my left eyebrow from a piece of glass. 6 stitches were put there. Now the stitches are removed and the wound is healing. But I am worried about getting the eyebrows back at that place
Doctor:It depends
Doctor:Mostly if the hair follicles got damaged then the hair will not grow back
User:is there any way to know if hair follicles are damaged?
Doctor:You need to wait and watch
Doctor:There is no way to know
User:and how long does it take to grow them in case of injury if follicles are not damaged
User:and can this be treated by a transplant?
Doctor:They will start showing up in 2 - 3 weeks
Doctor:Yes you can consult for hair transplant
Doctor:It is the only hope
User:ok thanks. One last question, 2 - 3 weeks from the day of injury or when the wound has healed completely?
Doctor:From the day of injury
Doctor:Some hair may take a little longer to grow back
Doctor:So just wait and watch
Doctor:Thanks for consulting
Doctor:Take care
