After 6 Months of an Eyebrow Transplant
Doctor Answers (8)
It can take up to a full year to see your end results. Some of the follicles may still be dormant. Have patience, and reevaluate your results at a year.

New Hair Growth and Eyebrow Transplant Surgery
Since you are only six months post surgery, there may be more potential growth. New hair growth usually maxes out at a year and will continue to mature and thicken for up to a year and a half after the eyebrow transplant. Consult with your surgeon for what to expect in the next six months, as wells as to see if there were any complications for only one-fourth of new hair growth from the grafts.
Second eyebrow transplant
I would think that by 9 months no more hairs will grow and a second transplant will be needed. Perhaps see another doctor.

If looks as if it has been nearly 2 years since you asked this question. Hopefully by now, the hairs have grown in. You have given the follicles enough time to grow and produce hairs. If you have not, please check in with your hair transplantation surgeon. He/she wants you to be happy and will do what they can to help. Take good care.
Eyebrow hair transplant
HI. We do alot of eyebrow transplants in our practice. Its one of the most rewarding cases we do. We have seen people whose eyebrow do not grow till a full year after the transplant. At this point, I would just wait. Give it time. We have found that the use of Latisse can accelerate this dormant phase. I usually have my eyebrow patients follow up every few months. Please call your surgeon and follow up with him/her. I'm sure you are in good hands.
After 6 months of eyebrow transplant
The eyebrows should respond to the transplant. There are many reasons why the transplant may not take. Do not rush into another procedure as the growth may take 3 to 6 months. At this time, more grafts may be required.

Results of Eyebrow Transplants
Transplants for sparse eyebrows is usually a successful, reiable procedure. Wait another 3-4 months before deciding whether or not you want more grafts. Your surgeon should help determine if you achieved less than appropriate results.
Poor growth of eyebrow hair transplants.
Discuss this with your surgeon as to why the poor growth. He may be willing to do more grafts for nothing.
