Eyebrow Hair Transplant
Eyebrow Transplants is one of the most aesthetically challenging procedures to perform, but when done by experts can provide an impressive result.

Though one may not notice when he/she has full and well-shaped eyebrows, it’s very easy to identify if your eyebrows have become too thin or are practically absent. When this occurs, the appearance of your face may affect your self-esteem and reduce your confidence. Due to developments in hair transplantation techniques over the past 10 years, eyebrow transplantation is possible and when performed properly, can provide beautiful results Whether you’ve gone through permanent hair loss in the area or are starting to experience thinning due to over-plucking or genetic issues, an eyebrow transplant can restore your eyebrows.
What is the recovery period?
Recovery time for this procedure is roughly a week. Small crusts appear around each hair during the first week following the procedure. They should be gently rinsed while showering and will leave small pink spots as the crusts slough off a week to 10 days later. The pink skin surrounding the grafts typically fades over a few weeks and leaves the area looking natural with no scarring.
How soon can I exercise or work?
Patients usually experience little or no discomfort following the procedure and much return to work and their daily activities the following day. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for a few days to minimize swelling.
Eyebrow transplant results will be seen in your new eyebrow shape and outline. Full results will be visible over the course of the next year. Hair grows in 3 stages so don’t be alarmed if you see some shedding after the hair transplant – it is normal. Hair growth varies from person-to-person and, as the transplanted hair continues to grow, you will need to trim the hair in order to achieve and maintain the desired look. This is very rarely an issue for patients as most are used to plucking or shaping regularly.
