Eyebrow hair transplantation

Eyebrows define our way of look; they enhance our eyes and provide balance and symmetry to our face. Also they define several facial expressions, such as fear, admiration, anger, sadness; and protection since they stop sweat goes into the eyes.  


Eyebrow hair transplantation is used to restore eyebrows, both in men and women having a partial or total eyebrow loss and can be replaced by eyebrow hair transplantation.


It is a secure, efficient and minimally invasive procedure, able to restore eyebrow only in one procedure. For eyebrow transplantation hairs are chosen form donor site (generally lateral occipital and temporal areas of the head). Only 1 and 2-hair follicular hairs are selected, which is very important to guarantee natural results. 


Design depends on face and eyes size of each person. We will obtain a good and satisfactory design for each patient.  
The angle of incision, hair growing direction and later implantation are meticulously studied in order to guarantee hair growth parallel to skin growth –good density and natural look.
For the implantation process we will use 0,6 mm implanters, so it is impossible to leave scars.


Eyebrow transplantation is a definite alternative for people who do not want to keep tattooing their eyebrows (micropigmentation); that way the person will have his own hair forever. The procedure does not need scalpel and will not leave scars or hematomas. 
Total or local loss of eyebrow hair produces changes in the way of look and psychological effects such as reduction of self esteem of the person.

Eyebrow hair loss or alteration causes are:

  • Alopecia Areata
  • Physic traumatism (surgical, accidents), chemical (solutions) and thermal (burns).
  • Trichotillomania (a compulsion to pull our one´s own hair
  • Congenic diseases (congenic hypotrichiasis) 
  • Hair removal using tweezers in order to define or give shape. When abusing it may lead to permanent eyebrow hair loss, which is one of the main causes. 
  • Medical or surgical treatments (radiotherapy, chemotherapy)
  • Local or systemic diseases (SLE, Hansen´s disease, thyroid pathology) 


Most of these diseases may be treated by using eyebrow hair transplantation. 
Local or systemic diseases responsible for eyebrow hair loss need to be treated so that the transplantation is a success. In the case of trichotillomania the patient needs to be treated in order to avoid compulsive urge to pull out.


Transplanted hair maintains genetic growing code from the donor site to recipient site for certain time. Once grafts are adapted to recipient site it will grow depending on implantation angle and direction and its original information.
Adaptation period lasts 2 years and during that time its growing rhythm will move closer to native hair growth. 
This process is called domain of recipient. 
During this adaptation period the patient will receive simple training for cutting his eyebrows and mould them by using gel or wax until the process is completed.
