Eyebrow Hair Transplant

  4.7 /5 (18 Reviews)

Eyebrow Hair Transplant Eyebrow hair transplant surgery, also known as eyebrow hair restoration, has become recognized as a permanent solution to eyebrow hair loss. Thinning or balding eyebrows have been known to result from:

  • Old age
  • Over-plucking
  • Autoimmune disorders
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Facial burns or injuries
  • Genetic conditions
Depending on the extent of your eyebrow hair loss, a full or partial eyebrow transplant may be recommended. On average, patients may have anywhere from 30-300 follicle units implanted per eyebrow.

The eyebrow restoration process itself is very similar to scalp hair transplantation, and requires the extraction and harvesting of scalp donor hairs to implant in the eyebrow area. Safe and useful for both men and women seeking to correct eyebrow hair loss, eyebrow hair transplants should always be performed by a highly trained hair transplant surgeon.

The best way to determine your candidacy for eyebrow transplants, or to acquire more specific information about eyebrow transplant treatments and costs, we recommend attending an eyebrow restoration consultation with a provider in your area!

What are the Side Effects of Eyebrow Hair Transplant?
Eyebrow hair transplants are generally viewed as very low-risk, and currently have no known major side effects.

Post treatment, patients will likely experience swelling, redness and some tenderness. As the eyebrow hair implants start to heal, the eyebrows will start to scab and can itch initially.

How Long do Eyebrow Hair Transplant results last?
If eyebrow transplants are properly taken care of, and if no future facial injuries or immunatory diseases destroy new hairs, eyebrow hair transplants should be permanent.
Back to the top

What is the recovery time for Eyebrow Hair Transplant?
A complete recovery, including new hair growth, post eyebrow hair transplants will take time. Within the first few days after eyebrow transplant surgery, the eyebrows should be protected from excessive sunlight, washed very carefully, and treated gently. Within the first few days following the procedure, eyebrow hair transplants should also have begun to heal and thus may be scabbing and feel itchy.

At 2-3 weeks after the eyebrow hair transplant, the stitches can often be removed (unless absorbable stitches were used), and the newly transplanted hairs may be falling out as part of the natural hair growth cycle.

3-6 months after the eyebrow hair transplant, new eyebrow hair growth should be visibly evident and filling in the spots where the transplanted hairs were originally placed.

Will my insurance company cover Eyebrow Hair Transplant?

Is there much discomfort for Eyebrow Hair Transplant?
Low. Anesthesia helps to numb any pain or discomfort that would be felt during the extraction or the eyebrow hair transplantation process.
Back to the top

What types of anesthesia is necessary for Eyebrow Hair Transplant?
Eyebrow transplant surgeons use local anesthesia to numb the eyebrow area prior to making any incisions or implanting donor hairs.
Back to the top

What else can I combine Eyebrow Hair Transplant with?
Since eyebrow hair transplantation is so specialized and time-consuming a procedure on its own, other treatments are not usually combined with eyebrow transplants. However, patients who suffer from eyebrow hair loss, as well as balding lashes and a diminishing hairline, may be interested in eyelash restoration treatments and scalp hair transplants as well.

Discuss other possible treatments to be combined with eyebrow hair transplants with your hair transplant surgeon.

"I was extremely pleased with the physician and the staff. They made my visit and procedure as comfortable and easy going as possible. If there are any recommendations I could make, I would suggest spending more time with the patient discussing eyebrow shapes that are aesthetically pleasing for their facial shape. I was surprised that the way I drew them on, would be how they were done seeing as how I am not pleased with how I do them. I asked the doctor for help to make the eyebrows look more symmetrical and she was glad to help. I almost wish that I could have handed over a picture and say "try to make them look like this." I am very happy with the results thus far and I can't wait for the swelling to go down so I have a better idea of how they look. The staff is very caring and professional - I could not have been more pleased. I was surprised to hear that I receive lunch and I was happy to learn that I got to watch DVDs during the process because it made time pass by more quickly. The trendy glasses were also a perk of the operation! When I walked out after the procedure my fiancé said "hey Hollywood!" Those glasses did a wonderful job covering up my eyebrows so when I went to get prescriptions filled I didn't get everyone staring at me. If I had to go back and do it all over again, I would still come back to Bosley. Dr.Shannon is terrific."

"Approximately five years ago, I had my eyebrows tattooed with less than desirable results. Misshaped, uneven, and mistakes that were tattooed over to try to fix/hide them. After consulting another doctor's office and being told the only thing they could do was remove the tattooing with no guarantee it could all be removed, I was VERY reluctant to try anything else. After about three years, I finally started researching other alternatives and came across the Bosley website. After another two years, I finally got up enough nerve to set up a consult with the Cincinnati, Ohio office. From the moment I met with Adam for the consult until the time I walked out of the Columbus office after the procedure, I was treated as though I was their only patient. Adam answered all of my questions, walked me through the process and set up the appointment for me. The Columbus, Ohio staff was very respectful, and very informative and patient answering all of my questions and concerns. Doctor Krenitsky was very confident in his surgical abilities WITHOUT being arrogant or making me feel my opinions/wants were not relevant. I appreciated the fact that the procedure was not rushed and that Dr. K and his staff worked so hard getting the perfect look and placement of each individual follicle. I sincerely cannot say enough great thing about Doctor Krenitsky and his staff!!! I would definitely recommend Bosley and especially Doctor Krenitsky to anyone who is thinking about having a transplant."

"I thought that the team in Philadelphia was wonderful. The nursing staff was great at keeping me laughing and at ease till the procedure began. Dr. Cornwall was very good at making sure i was happy with the "drawings" of my new eyebrows. I think that there was a bit more swelling and discoloration than i expected. My husband had a hair restoration 2 times in Philly. His swelling and bruising was significantly less than mine. I totally understand that my face is far more sensitive than his head. I'm just glad i took a week's vacation. I would recommend Bosley and especially the Philadelphia team to everyone. Great job! i'm looking forward to seeing my new eyebrows!!"
