Eyebrow transplants are becoming a huge trend in facial plastic surgery. The results typically are final at around the 9-12 month period.
Generally, at about the 3-6 month mark, you should be seeing good results from the transplant, and somewhere between month 6 and 12, you will see the final result.  Usually at about 6 months, you will consult with your surgeon to decide if more grafts are needed to achieve the desired look.

Eyebrow transplants are one of the biggest trends in facial plastic surgery.  The results are beautiful and typically are final at about the 9-12 month period.

Patience is a virtue in this type of plastic surgery, because hair does not grow as quickly as people think it does.  Hair growth in the brows post transplant will start at about 3 months, but it is sparse and patchy or uneven at this stage.  A patient should start to trim and train the hair (with brow wax or brow gel) starting at this point.

By about 6 months the brows are filling in nicely and patients can start to enjoy their results.  Growth continues to fill in up to 12 months as the rest of the transplants fill out the area.  This is when you can pluck any errant hairs, trim the ones that area getting long, and continue to train them into the shape you desire.

So it takes a while to have everything grow in, but be patient!

Good Luck!

New hair will continue to mature and thicken for up to a year-and-a-half after the eyebrow transplant. You can expect new hair growth in 14 to 16 weeks, which usually maxes out at a year. Follow-ups with the surgeon will continue during this time to track progress.

For most of my patients on whom I perform these procedures (and I typically perform 3 of them every week), they are presentable at 4 days after the procedure, and the hairs are mostly grown in by 7 to 8 months.

Sometime after 6 months you should see a nice result from the transplant, between month 6 and 12 you will arrive at the final result

It will take at least 6-9 months to see the final results, assuming you need only one session. At about 6 months you will determine if more grafts are needed to achieve the ideal result.
