It is important to base your decision on the doctor or surgeon performing your procedure, as experience and training is central to the success of the transplant, and we feel confident in our renowned medical team and proud to offer FUE eyebrow hair transplants.

The Problem

Many people never quite have enough eyebrow hair to achieve the look they want. In vogue over-plucking, genetics and ageing are just some of the reasons why some people don’t have enough eyebrow hair. The 90s saw bushy brows tamed, with tweezers and threading cemented as a beauty staple. For some, this meant over-plucking, leading to permanently damaged hair follicles unable to grow hair anymore. Others may have natural thinning or are affected by hereditary hair loss and seek a way to restore or establish eyebrow hair. While some people, as they age, lose eyebrow hair as they might on their scalp - seeing thinning and patches develop.

The Procedure

During a FUE eyebrow hair transplant procedure, the donor area is prepared first. Typically, for an eyebrow transplant, this is the area directly behind the ears. The hair is carefully and discreetly taken out of the donor area, one follicle at a time, and then transplanted to the transplant area. It is performed under local anaesthetic and many patients comfortably fall asleep during the procedure.

The Results

The results are permanent and you will see some immediate differences with a new outline. The full results are typically expected within 12 months for a standard FUE hair transplant. For an eyebrow hair transplant the desired look can be achieved in less time but will still require several months.

Hair grows in 3 stages so don’t be alarmed if you see some shedding after the hair transplant – it is normal. Hair growth varies between people and as the transplanted hair continues to grow, as it has done in the original donor area, you will need to trim the hairs in order to achieve and maintain the desired look. This is very rarely an issue for patients as most are used to plucking and shaving some part of their body regularly.

Downtime

There is no downtime. Unlike FUT ‘strip’ methods, which leave a significantly visible scar (especially visible with short hair) at the donor site and requires considerable aftercare, the FUE method of hair transplantation requires minimal aftercare and downtime, as well as leaving minimal scarring. You will need to avoid exercise, sweat particularly, for a few weeks post-procedure as this will help reduce the risk of infection significantly. You will be given full aftercare instructions at our clinic and have our support should you have any questions or need help.

Hair transplantation is really about relocating (transplanting) the bald resistant hair follicles from the back of the head to the balding areas on the top of the head. This process works for a lifetime because the hair follicles taken from the back of the head are genetically resistant to baldness, regardless of where they are relocated to.

Hair transplantation, when done right, can be so natural that even your hair stylist will not know that you've had it done. But the skill and techniques of hair transplant surgeons does vary widely, as do their results. It's important to choose the right procedure and clinic to assure that you will get completely natural results.

A typical session of between 1,500 to 3,000 grafts normally involves a full day of surgery on an out patient basis. Most patients will arrive in the morning and will have their procedure completed by late afternoon.

Patients are given local anesthesia in the donor and recipient areas. Most patients find that once the anesthesia is given that they feel no pain or discomfort during the surgery. Following surgery patients will typically feel some amount of soreness and numbness, with some mild discomfort. Most patients are pleasantly surprised by how minimal the discomfort from the surgical procedure is.

The amount of grafts you will need ultimately depends on your degree of hair loss, now and in the future, and on how full you desire your hair to be.

With today’s very refined micro hair transplantation procedure the incisions are very small and less invasive than past procedures. This results in more rapid healing. Most patients feel fine within a day or two following surgery, although some numbness and mild soreness can be expected for several days following surgery.

Immediately following surgery a patient’s recipient area is typically pink with scabs forming around the micro incisions. These hundreds of tiny incisions will heal rapidly within a week to ten days.

During the first few days after the surgery a person’s hair transplants will be noticeable if there is no previous hair to mask these temporary scabs. However, most patients feel comfortable being in public without wearing a hat within 5 to 7 days following surgery.

Once the transplanted hair grows out the results should look entirely natural, even under close examination.

Normally it takes between three to five months following surgery before the transplanted hair follicles begin to grow new hair. The transplanted hair grows in very thin initially and gradually grows thicker and fuller over time. After one year a patient’s transplanted hair will be fully mature and will continue to grow for a life time.

Since the hair follicles that are transplanted to the balding areas are genetically resistant to going bald, they will continue to grow for a life time – just as if they had been left in the bald resistant donor area.

Many patients can return to their daily routines within 1 to 2 days, as long as they don't do anything too strenuous. Avoid rigorous exercise until the donor sutures are removed — generally after 10 to 12 days.

There are always some risks with any cosmetic procedure but our team will ensure risks are kept to a minimum. You may experience a degree of redness in the transplant area but this will subside within a few days. There is a possible risk of infection but our aftercare procedure will help to keep the risk as low as possible. Our team will be available to guide you through the aftercare procedure should you have any further questions at any point, as part of our aftercare commitment.

The repositioning means that hairs of the eyebrow can be relocated within the eyebrow area. New forms and special effects can be reached in this way. Through the repositioning, the specialist can possibly influence positively the facial expressions and therefore let it appear younger, more open-minded and friendlier.

The technology for extraction and transplantation on I-FUE method is performed with micro thin instruments and therefore very gentle for the patient. Complications are generally not to be expected.

  • Wound healing dysfunction like keloid formation

The extraction of the donor hair depends on the personal conditions of the patient. In case of a partial loss of only one of the eyebrows, we take the donor hair from the intact eyebrow and transplant them to the other, bald eyebrow. This reallocation of hair happens between the eyebrows.

This surgical technique is quite young and performed for the first time in 2008 by the surgeon Azar. A double thinning of both eyebrows, due to genetically defects, diseases or a frequently plucking, can be treated through a possible transplantation of head hair.

The transplanted hair will start to grow shortly after the eyebrow transplantation. However, most of the transplanted hair will unfortunately shed between the 3rd and 5th week after the surgery. The asynchronous growth of the eyebrows will not start until the second month after the surgery. Asynchronous means that the growth of every single hair varies. A strong synchronous growth of the hair usually does not start until the 5th and 7th month after the eyebrow transplantation. The final treatment outcome can be expected approximately 10 month after the treatment.

The transplanted hair will grow naturally, just like the original eyebrow hair and therefore achieve very natural outcomes. About half of the transplanted hair will have a stronger length growth than the natively hair. This can be matched through cutting the hair from time to time to the individually desired length.
