Is There a Procedure to Get Thicker Eyebrows?

I'm planning on getting plastic surgery in the future but for now I'm just doing research... So is there a way to get thicker bushier eyebrows for men? It doesn't seem like a complicated thing to do compared to other plastic surgeries but I haven't found anything on it. I would want this because I am male and have thin eyebrows. Please help!!

Hair transplant surgery can add density and fullness to eyebrows for both men and women.  It is relatively common and you can find more information on Google as well as this website.

Eyebrow Transplant for Thicker Brows

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

At my practice in New York, I offer eyebrow transplant for thin eyebrows as well as for replacing lost follicles due to trauma. For eyebrow transplant surgery, the donor area comes from either your scalp or your leg. The donor is usually taken from a site that furnishes finer rather than coarser hair; finer hair is a better “match” for eyebrow hair. Those follicles are individually separated and placed individually in a pattern that gives a contoured, natural look. 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. These hairs will need to be trimmed on a regular basis as they retain the same growth characteristics as the donor site.

Hair transplant to the eyebrows is an excellent option for improving hair density to the eyebrows. This is commonly performed for scars, asymmetry, or just to increase fullness. I always recommend seeing a fellowship-trained hair restoration surgeon, particularly for eyebrow transplant, as this is an advanced technique.

All the best,

Amazing results can be achieved by using appropriate follicles from select areas of your scalp using to recreate density and shape to your brows.  Results can be seen in as little as 2 months and the recovery time is relatively quick.

This is a great question and one that patients do not realize there is a solution for.  Eyebrow transplantation is a great option to restore eyebrows or increase the density to the eyebrows.  It is performed by using the hairs from the back of your scalp (we try to use the finer hairs to mimic the fine eyebrow hairs) and are they transplanted to the eyebrow region.  This is done as an out-patient procedure, with you awake using only local anesthesia, with minimal downtime.  Best wishes to you!

Eyebrow transplanting

Eyebrow transplantation  is a frequently performed procedure in all practices.  There is a unique pattern that is necessary to follow for placement  of the grafts when it comes to eyebrow enhancement .  Often 200 to 300 grafts may be sufficient to give greater density to the eyebrows, and these grafts may still be harvested from the posterior scalp donor sites used for other graft harvesting.


Check with your local Plastic Surgeon if you have a desire to  discuss eyebrow transplantation.


Good luck to you.

Actually, eyebrow transplants-  a procedure I perform on average 3 times weekly  -   is a very challenging procedure from both a technical and aesthetic aspect.  However, the answer is, yes, there is a procedure to thicken eyebows, and when done properly, can make a huge difference.

Eyebrow Transplant To Thicken Eyebrows

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Yes, there is a procedure that can thicken the eyebrows, called eyebrow transplant. This is a follicular unit extraction (FUE) hair transplant procedure that traditionally extracts donor hair from the scalp. I am a leading practitioner of body hair transplant, a niche of FUE that makes use of non-traditional donor sources for special cases. Using FUE uGraft, I typically harvest hair from the nape of the neck or the legs when performing eyebrow transplant, as these sources best match the caliber and length of eyebrow hair.

Traditional donor hair (from the mid-rear scalp) is longer and would bear the ongoing inconvenience of frequent trimming after your eyebrow transplant procedure.

Just trying to thicken eyebrows with a hair transplant is not very satisfying because the hair doesn't match well.  There is some evidence that latisse for thickening eyelashes may also thicken eyebrows, but there is not enough information available to date.
