Eyebrows can be missing or thinning for a number of different reasons, such as over-plucking, alopecia, scars caused by facial injury or burns, or even from natural ageing.
At the Harley Street Hair Clinic, we offer a revolutionary eyebrow transplant, also called eyebrow hair implants, using the FUE hair transplant technique. We can help to build on a thinning or damaged eyebrow, or even create a natural-looking, realistic eyebrow for those with no hair at all.
Can eyebrows be transplanted?
Yes, hair transplants for eyebrows are possible! Using the FUE transplant technique, we are able to completely recreate an eyebrow using donor hair. These are commonly referred to as eyebrow implants.
How does an eyebrow transplant work?
An eyebrow transplant is a procedure, similar to a hair transplant that works to reconstruct your natural eyebrows. The process works by taking donor hair from the scalp and transplanting it to the eyebrows to help eyebrow thinning and achieve a fuller brow.
Donor hair is extracted from the back of the scalp, using the FUE technique, and then prepared under a microscope to extract the single follicular units.
After this, the donor hair is inserted into thinning areas in the eyebrows, or around the whole brow area to create natural-looking eyebrows using a 23 gauge hypodermic needle under a high magnification microscope.
Eyebrow hair transplant is a very delicate procedure, requiring perfect placement of the hairs into tiny incisions that are angled at just the right direction and positioned to mimic natural growth. No scalpels are needed and no stitches are required. The procedure is 100% micro-surgical. Patients will regain their natural growing eyebrows with no side effects.
How long do eyebrow transplants last?
Eyebrow transplants are a permanent solution for eyebrow implants, using the FUE technique, these procedures last a lifetime. There will be noticeable growth at between four and six months’ time after the surgery. You will start to see the final cosmetic result at around 10 months.
Do eyebrow transplants keep growing?
As the donor hair that is transplanted into the eyebrow is from the scalp, the hair growth will remain the same and it will grow to the full length of your head hair. Therefore, the transplanted eyebrow hair must be periodically trimmed (typically once a month). This is completely standard for eyebrow implants and after some time the transplanted hair can adjust and might no longer need trimming.
How much does it cost for eyebrow transplant?
The cost of the eyebrow hair transplant depends on the number of grafts required, but an approximate guide price is between £2,500 to £7,000.
