Eyebrow Transplant

Eyebrow Transplant

step by step

For both male and female eyebrow transplants, the doctor carefully designs the eyebrow area according to the patient’s needs and the defined symmetry.

The number of hairs required and the type of follicular grafts needed for a natural result and density are counted.

The required hair follicles are extracted from the donor area (usually at the back of the head) and placed in the eyebrow area.

The hair implanted on the brow bone grows for life.

Results of the eyebrow transplant

Eyebrow alopecia is a common condition that affects both men and women. It is characterised by a loss of eyebrow hair, which can have various causes.

However, whatever the causes of this condition, it is now possible to treat it. All that is needed is an eyebrow transplant. The results with this technique are natural and permanent. See for yourself.

How is the eyebrow implant performed?

The procedure takes between 2 and 3 hours. The surgeon will start by removing between 100 and 300 hairs (called grafts), depending on the technique used (FUT or FUE) and the desired density.

In the strip technique, the doctor cuts a small strip (up to a few centimetres) in the scalp. After the extraction, he sutures the incision, which leaves a thin invisible scar under the hair. This thin strip is then cut into grafts corresponding to the future implantation of the eyebrow on the brow bone.

In the case of FUE, the doctor removes the grafts one by one with a maximum of a 1 mm punch. In all cases, the grafts are examined one by one for counting and set aside in a refrigerated physiological solution. Then, in agreement with the patient, he draws the eyebrow and reinserts the graft with a needle into the eyebrow line.

What to do after the eyebrow transplant?

For a few days after the eyebrow transplant for men or women, the transplanted area may appear slightly swollen. The grafts will also form small scabs that will fall off naturally after 5 to 7 days.

The eyebrows will then grow naturally after four months and from the fifth month. The final result is usually obtained 8 to 10 months after the operation.

Instructions for eyebrow transplantation

  • 1 - An antiseptic shampoo should be used on the morning of the operation.
  • 2 - Antibiotic treatment should be given from the day before the operation until 3 days after the transplant.
  • 3 - Caffeine should be avoided on the morning of the operation.

Why have an eyebrow transplant?

Eyebrow transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that consists of removing hair from a patient’s scalp. These hairs are then implanted on the face, directly on the eyebrow arch. The aim of this graft is to inject these implants one by one to recreate the complete eyebrow line or to compensate for the loss of eyebrow hair.

It is intended to permanently correct alopecia or blemishes on the eyebrows. These are often caused by repeated hair removal, permanent make-up, disease, ageing, burns or accidental injury.

Eyebrow grafting makes it possible to conceal and repair the total or partial loss of eyebrows in an aesthetic, effective and harmonious way. This surgical technique allows the eyebrow line to be lengthened and its density increased.

Need more information?

Before having an eyebrow transplant, it is necessary to have an initial consultation. The purpose of this initial consultation is to eliminate any contraindications, to learn about the different micrografting procedures and to determine the number of grafts you will need.

At the end of this consultation, the doctor will give you a precise estimate and you must respect the legal deadline of 15 days before the operation.
