Understanding Eyebrow Hair Transplant
Eyebrow hair transplant is quite a challenge as compared to regular hair transplant procedures for the scalp. It can be done by both FUE and FUT procedures. However, an FUE procedure is a better option as it does not involve any scalpel and most importantly, it does not leave a scar. An eyebrow hair transplant is done under a local anesthesia and is a minimally invasive procedure. It also does not require any downtime for healing, and you can get back to your normal routine immediately after the procedure.
How is an eyebrow hair transplant done?
An eyebrow hair transplant needs to be done very carefully and meticulously.
- The first step is the designing of the eyebrow shape as per your liking, and the art of making it look natural.
- Then comes the sedation, where some of the patients might take oral medicine after the anesthesia is given. This numbs the surgical site helping you relax and not feel any pain during the surgery.
- The procedure can involve as many as 50 to 400 hair grafts being harvested and implanted in each eyebrow.
- The hair grafts from the donor area are harvested and implanted into the recipient sites that have various angles and directions of growth.
- The procedure is considered to be complete after the desired best shape of eyebrow is achieved.
- It takes about four hours based on the number of hair grafts that are implanted, to get the best possible shape and results.
- The patient can leave once the procedure is done, but will have a slight discomfort in the donor area in case of a strip method.
- The recipient and donor sites in any case will have a little bit of redness and swelling immediately after the procedure, but gets back to normal within a week.
- The transplanted hair will shed after 2-3 weeks and then grow like natural hair within four months to give you deep dark eyebrows.

What determines your candidature for an eyebrow hair transplant?
Your surgeon will recommend a complete or partial eyebrow hair transplant depending on the extent of your eyebrow hair loss. However, there are a few other factors which can make you a good candidate for an eyebrow hair transplant. They are:
1. Age – While there’s no specific age for getting an eyebrow transplant, age still plays a significant role. The best age for getting it done is 30 and above. Do you fit the criteria?
2. Type of hair loss – If you have female pattern baldness the you are a good candidate for an eyebrow hair transplant. It is a genetic condition that causes certain areas of the scalp to lose hair. However, it also leaves you with a good density of donor hair follicles from where hair grafts can be harvested.
3. General health – Your overall health plays a vital role while making a choice to get an eyebrow hair transplant done. Since it is a surgical procedure, it is important that you get your vitals checked before the surgery and maintain a healthy lifestyle. Regular exercising and a balanced diet are essential for faster and healthy healing.
4. Hair type – An interesting fact is that the results of an eyebrow transplant also depend on the type of hair you have. Although any type of hair can be used, the thinker the hair follicle is, the better coverage it will give to the balding area.
