It can be achieved
Once we have extracted the required amount of hair, we transplant individual follicular units in the desired areas, to restore bald areas and create a natural-looking eyebrow. It is very important that your transplanted hairs for your eyebrows are done in a way that harmonizes well with your eyes. Once we harvest the hair we will also make sure that is implanted at the right angle to replicate original growth. Because the transplanted hair will come from the back of the head, it also requires us to match natural colour of the area being transplanted. These hairs will initially grow faster and will require trimming for the 1st year or two.
You would need approximately 200 grafts on each brow to reconstruct the brow head bilaterally and reinforce the density throughout.

Regarding meeting expectations with eyebrow restoration
The goal that you have chosen appears to be too high. The model who's eyebrows you like has very thick eyebrows. The caliber of the eyebrow hair appears much coarser then your own eyebrows. While eyebrows can be restored very well in someone with thin or no eyebrows, I do not know that will be enough to satisfy you. Having said that, certainly your eyebrows can be made thicker by transplanting between what you have. It is important to study your available donor, and to have reasonable expectations because no-one wants for you to be disappointed!
