What is an eyebrow transplant?
Eyebrow transplant are a permanent solution to hair loss or poor density/distribution of hair in the brow area. Undesirable eyebrow appearance may result from overplucking, trauma (like laser treatments or scarring), or medical conditions like alopecia or hypothyroidism.
Eyebrow transplant can be performed via standard surgical hair transplant methods like Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) or Follicular Unit Transplantation (FUT). FUE involves small areas of donor hair scalp harvesting whereas FUT uses one large donor scalp strip leading to more follicles but also more scarring.
An important component of an eyebrow transplant is the required ongoing maintenance. Harvested hair follicles will continue to grow like scalp hair. This means the brow hair will require significant regular maintenance most likely with the assistance of an expert to maintain the desired aesthetic two to three times a month.
What cosmetic concerns does an eyebrow transplant treat?
- Hair Loss: Eyebrow transplants can be used to fill in areas of sparseness or poor distribution.
- Eyebrow & Eyelash Hair: An eyebrow transplant increases brow volume and density to improve the eyebrow shape, appearance, and size.
Who is the ideal candidate for an eyebrow transplant procedure?
The ideal candidate for an eyebrow transplant has hair loss in the eyebrows and is looking for a permanent enhancement to brow volume, density, and distribution. Eyebrow transplants are not recommended for those with poor donor sites, those unable to commit to regular brow maintenance following the procedure, or those with hair loss due to medication, medical treatments, or stress.
What is the average recovery associated with an eyebrow transplant procedure?
The average recovery following an eyebrow transplant is about one week. Eyebrows will be red, tender, and swollen for a few days. The harvested areas of the scalp will also be swollen and tender. In the case of FUT, sutures will be present on the scalp in the donor area for five days. Patients will need to take care to not excessively manipulate the transplanted areas.
What are the potential side effects of an eyebrow transplant procedure?

The majority of new hair growth will occur after six months. Results may continue to improve for up to 12 months. Patients will need to to regularly trim and maintain the eyebrow hair to ensure optimal aesthetic results.
