What are Eyebrow Transplants?

A transplant of hair follicles from another area of the body to the eyebrows is a cosmetic procedure known as an eyebrow transplant. The procedure is intended predominantly for individuals who have lost their eyebrow hair due to alopecia, overplucking, or injury. The popularity of eyebrow transplants is increasing as they provide a long-term solution for eyebrow hair loss, but the procedure’s purpose and complexities may elude many individuals.

How are Eyebrow Transplants performed?

Eyebrow transplants entail the extraction of hair follicles from the cranium or other hair-bearing body regions. The transplanted hair follicles are then placed in the eyebrow region. The procedure may be carried out using either FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or FUT (Follicular Unit Transplantation) techniques.

FUE involves the removal of individual hair follicles from the scalp or other body regions using a small punch-like instrument. Using microscopic incisions, the extracted follicles are then transplanted into the eyebrow region. FUT entails removing a swath of tissue from the donor region, typically the scalp, and dissecting it into individual follicular units. The transplanted units are then placed in the eyebrow region.

Dangers and Advantages of Eyebrow Transplants

As with any surgical procedure, eyebrow transplants are not without risk. Included among the hazards are:

  • Infection
  • Bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Numbness
  • Pain Swelling

However, the risks associated with eyebrow transplants are minimal, and the procedure is generally secure when carried out by a qualified and experienced surgeon.

Among the advantages of eyebrow transplants are:

  • A permanent remedy for eyebrow hair loss
  • Authentic-appearing results
  • Enhanced self-assurance and self-esteem
  • Limited interruption
  • No ongoing maintenance is required, such as daily eyebrow cosmetics application.

Patients Eligible for Eyebrow Transplants

Eyebrow transplants are appropriate for those who have lost their eyebrow hair for a variety of reasons. The most prevalent causes of eyebrow hair loss include:

  • Alopecia is an autoimmune disorder in which the immune system attacks hair follicles, causing hair loss.
  • Repeatedly removing eyebrow hair can cause injury to hair follicles and hair loss.
  • Trauma or injury to the eyebrow region can result in hair loss.
  • Due to genetics, some individuals may have inherently sparse eyebrows.

Individuals who wish to improve the appearance of their eyebrows may also benefit from eyebrow transplants. The procedure can be used to create a fuller appearance, fill in spaces, or reshape the eyebrows.

Price of Eyebrow Implants

Several factors affect the expense of eyebrow transplants, including geographic location, surgeon’s experience and reputation, the extent of the procedure, and the number of hair follicles needed. In Canada, eyebrow transplants cost between $1,500 and $5,500. In other countries, such as Turkey, the price can be substantially lower, ranging from $1,000 to $2,000.

It is important to note that eyebrow transplants are typically not covered by insurance because they are considered a cosmetic procedure.


A transplant is a permanent solution for those who have lost their eyebrow hair for various reasons. The procedure entails transplanting hair follicles from the cranium or other areas of the body to the eyebrow region. When performed by a qualified and experienced surgeon, eyebrow transplants are safe, and the risks associated with the procedure are minimal. The advantages of brow transplants include natural-looking results, increased self-confidence and self-esteem, and minimal recovery time.
