Permanent makeup

Hello everyone! Hope everyone is doing well. I had a hysterectomy and bilateral BSO. Woke up with an IP port following surgery and initial pathology showed high grade Fallopian tube cancer. I am waiting for final pathology and conduit next week. In the mean time I am planning ahead for treatment. I was thinking of doing permanent eyebrows prior to treatment as I have naturally dark eyebrows and think this would bother me even more than hair loss. Wondering if anyone had any information about this.


  • @Siga I sure do!  I had the most amazing 'artiste' microblade my eyebrows.  It was so good that when I woke up in ICU I had two nurses a foot or so away staring at them and wondering where I got them done.  It was a lovely change from talking about the elephant in the room.  They've faded somewhat now but no matter since my eyebrows have grown back in.  Do anything you can to make you feel good during this trying time:)

    If you live in the GTA I'll send through the name of the 'artiste':)
  • Hi Annie, I am in the GTA and would love a contact. Do you know how early before starting treatment does this need to be done. I’m not sure if I should wait for my oncology appointment or get it done ASAP! 
  • Hi @Siga Welcome to our community. So glad you found us.  Wow,  wish I'd thought of that before my treatment and surgery began. What a great idea.  On timing, I'd suggest you you check in with your cancer care team/oncologist. Once chemo (assuming that's what lies ahead next) begins your immunity levels decrease and the potential for infection increases dramatically.  Let them guide you with optimal timing to have this done.  I often check in with my oncologist or primary care nurse when I have questions like that in between formal appointments. Usually get an answer back same day. 

    Take care and do post a picture for us once you've had the new brows.  I, and I'm sure others, would love to see the after look.
