Eyebrow Hair Transplant

  4.8 /5 (23 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.

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.

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.
