The Eyebrow Transplant Procedure
The surgical eyebrow transplant procedure takes around 3 to 4 hours. The donor hair for your eyebrows is taken from a donor site at the back of the head. Hair follicles and surrounding tissue are removed. These follicular grafts are dissected and separated from the surrounding tissue, with great care taken to preserve the integrity of the hair follicle. The graft is immediately implanted into the prepared brow area. Both the donor and recipient sites recover rapidly from the surgery, and the stitches securing the donor site are removed in 7 to 10 day. Some patients may benefit from a new approach, follicular unit extraction (FUE), which requires no stitches. Following your procedure, you may experience some swelling. In rare cases, bruising may occur in the brow area. All of these side effects should subside within a week or two.
Some of the reasons people seek eyebrow hair restoration:
- Accident or injury
- Over-plucking the eyebrows
- Reaction to medications

It will take almost three months for your new eyebrows to grow in. Soon after the procedure the transplanted hair will enter a dormant phase. After about twelve weeks the hair enters a growth phase, and this is when your eyebrows will start to grow in naturally.
