Can you transfer eyebrow hair from one eyebrow to another with the FUE hair transplant method?

Transferring Eyebrow Hair Using FUE
Also keep in mind that punches that are normally used to remove hair that emerges close to 90 degrees would likely damage other types of grafts.
Alternatively, if you are concerned about filling in sparse or empty areas of the brows, it is possible to use leg or nape hair to create a more even looking appearance. My clinic has successfully performed these types of procedures, helping actual patients achieve the results they wanted and long term satisfaction.
Again, what matters is the use of specialized FUE instruments as well as the skill and experience of the service provider.

Eyebrow FUE - can one brow be the donor?
Practically it could be challenging, depending on the number of grafts needed. You'd want to sit down with your surgeon and have a really thorough discussion, keeping in mind
1. survival of FUE eyebrow hairs could be as low as 60 %
2 The full eyebrow only has 300 or so hairs to begin with
3. The micronscars created in the donor eyebrow could potentially affect eyebrow hairs in the fuller brow. (FUE is not a scarless procedure)
4 A post op telogen effluvium or shedding of some hairs in the fuller brow could occur
All in all, other options might best be explored first but get many opinions
