About the Procedure

Last Updated: 09.18.2021

Eyebrow Transplants 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 Transplants 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.

The goal of an eyebrow transplant Eyebrow is to permanently restore or enhance the brow by hair follicle harvesting from the scalp for re-implantation in the brow area.
