An eyebrow transplant? A hair restoration surgeon can help you decide.

Constant plucking, tweezing and plain old genetics can make eyebrows stop growing. Some people lose their eyebrows entirely. Others only lose their eyebrows partially. The good news is that, just like hair on your head, eyebrows can be treated with drugs. They can also be transplanted to look just like they did before they stopped growing.

The place to start is by having a qualified hair restoration surgeon give you an examination to make sure there is not a medical reason for eyebrow hair loss. For example, the outer third of the eyebrow can sometimes disappear due to low thyroid conditions or imbalances of the endocrine system. There are also autoimmune disorders that can cause eyebrow hair loss. Eczema in the eyebrow area can cause excessive scratching which can lead to eyebrow hair loss.

Only you and your hair restoration surgeon can determine whether performing a hair loss restoration procedure to your eyebrows is right for you. To do the procedure, the hair restoration will work with you to find the most pleasing shape for your eyebrows. Normally, each eyebrow require 200 to 300 follicular grafts. Donor hairs are removed from the scalp individually from the back of the head for implantation in the eyebrow area. Performing the work takes about two to three hours. The transplant is permanent but it should be noted that the transplanted hairs will require trimming occasionally as they will grow at the same rate as the hair on your head.
