Eyebrow Transplant Surgery

What is an eyebrow transplant?

An eyebrow transplant is a cosmetic procedure that helps restore eyebrows, creating a natural, full look. There are many reasons why someone may want an eyebrow transplant – from patients who have lost their eyebrows due to medical conditions, to those who have previously over-plucked their brows – but no matter the reason, eyebrow transplant surgery offers a permanent result to transform the face.

The eyebrow transplant procedure is similar to hair transplant surgery, where hair is taken from a donor area and transferred to the brow area. At Crown Clinic, we pioneered the introduction of eyebrow transplants to the UK. In fact, our surgeon Dr Asim Shahmalak is one of the few surgeons in the UK qualified to carry out this delicate procedure.

Why have an eyebrow transplant?

There are a variety of reasons why somebody may choose to undergo an eyebrow transplant, such as:

Physical traumas – such as facial injuries and scarring due to events such as road accidents, industrial accidents, thermal and chemical burns.

Surgical treatments that result in the removal of eyebrow follicles and tissue scarring. Radiotherapy or chemotherapy for cancer can also result in loss of eyebrow hair.

Compulsive plucking of eyebrows and other body hair, known as Trichotillomania.

Congenital conditions that lead to an absence of hair on the body.

The majority of our patients were either born with naturally thin brows or have struggled with sparse brows as a result of over-plucking.

Your Journey

Consultation

At your consultation with Crown Clinic, we will thoroughly assess if you are a suitable candidate for eyebrow transplant surgery, or if another treatment may be a better option. If you are eligible for surgery, we will be able to estimate how many grafts will be required to achieve your desired look.

Procedure

Eyebrow transplants are performed under local anaesthetic, meaning patients are awake for the whole procedure.

The donor site is prepared first (this can be the back of the head or behind the ears, for example) and then hairs are removed from this area, one follicle at a time, and transplanted into the eyebrow region.

Depending on the extent of eyebrow hair loss, the process can require many follicular units and more than one session.

Aftercare

As the new eyebrow hairs come from the head, the new eyebrows grow just like head hair, meaning that they need to be trimmed regularly. They also need to be curled so that they blend perfectly with the existing natural eyebrows.

Crown Clinic provides patients with a beauty kit to keep your eyebrows trimmed and curled. Patients find that with this simple maintenance, their new brows blend perfectly with the existing strands.

Although the eyebrow area will likely be a little delicate for a few days after the procedure, it will quickly return to normal. After around six months, your eyebrows should be fully settled.
