When I was about 7 years old, I was bit in the face by our neighbor's Dalmatian. She bit me right above my left eye. I was fortunate that she didn't hit the eye at all, but she essentially removed 1/2 of my eyebrow. They stitched it up and told me that eventually I'd have to have plastic surgery with a skin and hair graft to make it look normal. Once I learned how to fill it in with a little eyeliner, I never even considered the surgery. I can make it look normal, enough. This does, however cause a bit of a problem with eyebrow shaping. I've been waxing my brows (actually, I've paid a professional) for several years now and the challenge is matching up the right with the left. Hair still grows around the left brow, it's just in the wrong place. Since I have this "deformity" I pay pretty close attention to my brows... and what a difference a good waxing can do. It cleans up my whole face and lifts the eye enough to make me look a little more alert, awake and a whole lot younger.
