Eyebrow Transplant

Compare 8 clinics

Eyebrow transplant surgery, also known as an eyebrow hair transplant, is a type of eyebrow restoration procedure in which the appearance of the eyebrows is restored. Some patients may opt for this procedure in order to change the shape or thickness of their eyebrows. Although the procedure was first developed as a means to help burn victims get over physical and psychological trauma, eyebrow transplant surgery became a very popular cosmetic procedure due to its results and simplicity.

Both the FUE and FUT techniques may be used to perform an eyebrow transplant, with the latter being more popular among surgeons and patients.

Around 50 to 350 hair follicles are transplanted during an average eyebrow transplant surgery. The procedure itself can last a few hours.

Eyebrow Transplant Candidates

Eyebrow transplant surgery is a great option for patients with missing, scarred or very thin eyebrows. Patients may have lost their eyebrows due to laser hair removal, genetics, over plucking, trauma, burns or hormonal abnormalities which lead to lower hair density in the area.

Am I Suitable for Eyebrow Transplant?

Eyebrow transplant surgery is not recommended for individuals with bald spots on the back of the head or patients suffering from spot baldness. Diffuse pattern balding is also a contraindication to eyebrow transplant surgery, as the condition affects all areas of the scalp, including the back of the head (the donor area), effectively making the hair follicles from this area unusable for the eyebrow restoration procedure.

Preparing for Eyebrow Transplant

Patients need to avoid any oral supplements, vitamins, aspirin, anti inflammatory medicine and smoking for at least a week before the eyebrow transplant surgery – these can have a negative influence on the procedure and the healing process.

How is Eyebrow Transplant Performed?

Local anaesthesia is first administered to the patient. The procedure is performed differently, depending on the technique used:

If the FUT technique is used, a strip of hair follicles are removed from the donor area. The incision is then closed with sutures. The strip is put under a microscope and the surgeon and his team will begin selecting healthy hair follicles that match the patient’s existing eyebrows colour and width. Small incisions are made in the eyebrows region. The incisions are created at an angle that mimics the patient’s natural eyebrows. The hair follicles are then placed into these incisions and the procedure is over.

With the FUE technique, a micromotor with a micropunch is used to harvest hair follicles from the donor area. The hair follicles are then transplanted into the eyebrows region.

Eyebrow Transplant Recovery

Patients will be provided with a set of instructions which need to be followed carefully. Pain medication, sleeping pills or antibiotics may be prescribed to the patient by the doctor. Antibiotics are usually prescribed to patients undergoing FUT eyebrow transplant surgery. Rubbing, scratching or touching the eyebrows is not advised for at least a week.

Eyebrow Transplant Risks and Complications

There are no known risks or complications associated with eyebrow transplant surgery. The only potential risk is an infection, if the FUT technique is used. Patients are usually prescribed antibiotics in order to prevent any infection in the donor area.

Eyebrow Transplant Side Effects

Eyebrow transplant surgery side effects can include one or more of the following:

● Swelling around the donor area
● Itchiness around the eyebrows
● Redness and pimples around the eyebrows

Patients can also expect some pain around the donor area, if the FUT technique is used.

Eyebrow Transplant Success Rates

Eyebrow transplant reviews set the success rate between 95 and 98%, one year after the eyebrow restoration procedure is performed.

Before and After Eyebrow Transplant

The patient’s newly implanted hair follicles will fall off in around 2-3 weeks and then they will begin to grow naturally over the course of two months. Eyebrow transplant surgery provides patients with great results, but the transplanted hair will need to be trimmed every month, as it is still genetically designed to grow continuously.

Eyebrow Transplant FAQ

?
Are eyebrow transplant surgery results permanent?

Definitely – during the eyebrow transplant only healthy hair follicles are implanted and the results last a lifetime.

?
Will I have a scar or a bald spot in the donor area?

If the FUT technique is used during eyebrow transplant surgery, you may have a small scar but it is very hard to notice it. With the FUE technique, there is no scar and no bald spots, just a small reduction in hair density.

?
When can I return to work after an eyebrow transplant?

Patients usually return to normal activities in about 5 days.
