Many people who pluck do not sca

Many people who pluck do not scar and the eyebrows do regrow. For those hairs that do not regrow, hair transplants with single hairs can be done by experienced transplant surgeons. The cost could be very different from surgeon to surgeon and depending upon the town in which the surgeon practices.

Yes, eyebrow hair transplants are possible

Good question. Absolutely, a skilled, experienced surgeon should be able to transplant hairs on your eyebrows to produce natural-looking results. It requires less downtime for the patients and does not have the associated risks of the surgical strip method. The cost varies depending on the region.

Can I Get Hair Transplant Surgery for my Eyebrows?

Thank you for your question - absolutely!  Hair transplant surgery to the eyebrows is a great treatment for those patients who have over plucked their eyebrows, hair loss from scars in their eyebrow region, or just genetics.  It is best to see a surgeon who specializes in hair transplantation because it is important to recreate the natural arch of the eyebrow with the finest, single hairs available.  Cost varies between surgeon to surgeon, but during your consultation, the surgeon will evaluate your eyebrows to assess how many hairs you need and commonly the price is dependent on how many hairs is needed to achieve your goals.  I hope this helps!

Eyebrow Transplant

Yes, there is indeed a surgery dedicated to restoring eyebrow hairs, called an eyebrow transplant. The procedure is done by an experienced surgeon who replaces the lost hair follicles to make the brows look more full and to give the face a stronger frame. The price of an eyebrow transplant is dependent on the surgeon you choose and the region in which you live. For a more accurate assessment of how much an eyebrow transplant will cost and to answer any remaining questions, consult a few doctors in your area.

Hair Transplants for Eyebrows

One or two hair transplants are the best choice to improve eyebrow appearance in men and women regardless of the cause of the thin or absent hair. The grafts can be used to create absent eyebrows, improve brow contour, or thicken thin brows. The hair is taken from the scalp and therefore must be periodically trimmed because they will grow exactly as they did in their original location.

Yes, Hair Tranpslant for the Eyebrows is Great!

Yes, eyebrow transplantation is an art and a skill. I just did a gentlemen a few days ago who had overplucked his eyebrows and it was just the upper half. The main thing is that the eyebrows that are transplanted will grow as rapidly as they hairs on your head. You may need to trim them every few days to weeks. Many times after 1 to 2 years, they can slow down in their growth, known as "recipient dominance", where the recipient bed influences the speed of growth.

I have before and afters and other info on my website Here is a video about eyebrow transplant that I shot.

Eyebrow Transplants

Yes indeed! I offer this procedure for those with thin eyebrows as well as those who have simply lost those follicles do to trauma. The donor area comes from the back of the head as with any hair transplant. Those follicles are individually separated and placed one by one in a pattern that gives a normal and natural look. It should be noted that these hairs will need to be trimmed on a regular basis.

Like all hair transplants, these newly placed follicles will most likely go dormant for a while after surgery and will not start to grow until approximately 4 months later.
