Most often, we do this procedure in one surgery.  With the graft numbers you presented, this will easily be done in one session.  Keep in mind that a touch up could be necessary, but this won't be decided for a year or so after the procedure.  Best of luck to you. Dr. P

This surgery should easily be done in one session. Though you should always keep in mind that a touch up could be necessary.  However, this decision won't be made until between 6 months to a year following the surgery.

Yes, Eyebrow transplant is a minimally invasive micro surgical procedure. Usually 1 session is all that is required for my patients in New York who have eyebrow transplant surgery. The transplanted hair is your own naturally growing hair. The donor is usually taken from a site that furnishes finer rather than coarser hair; finer hair is a better “match” for eyebrow hair (Either your scalp or your leg.) Donor hair is transplanted micro surgically 1 or 2 hairs at a time. Each graft is placed into an incision prepared for it. The use of single hairs or micrografts permits meticulous adherence to the eyebrow contour for a natural appearance.

An eyebrow transplant harvesting and placing 400 follicles can be completed in one session. Of course, follow-up visits may be involved in the long-term care, but only one surgical session should be needed.

You should have excellent result with a single session of transplants. You will decide if you want any refinement after the original grafts have grown.

I always tell my patients that they will need a second, touch up session   In spite of doing up to 30(510) 849-44000 single hair grafts/ eyebrow in extreme cases, not all hairs survive and grow. A second session is simple to perform as we can place hairs in the needed spaces accurately without dense packing
