Who is the best candidate for eyebrow transplant?

“The best candidate for an eyebrow transplant is someone who has typically over plucked or lost hair somehow from their eyebrows and as a result, have really thin eyebrows and want to regain their past thickness back,” says Dr. Yannis.

How long does it take to get an eyebrow transplant?

The duration of an eyebrow transplant can vary, but Dr. Yannis tells us that that the surgery itself can take anywhere from four to six hours typically.

How do you decide the right brow shape?

Dr. Yannis tells us that the shape of the eyebrow is designed beforehand in a collaboration with surgeon and patient. “They are there to make sure that they are happy with the design. It helps if the patient can bring some pictures in to show what their eyebrows looked like before and what shape and design they are looking to achieve. The process is a very inclusive one with feedback from the patient,” he adds.

How long is the recovery time for an eyebrow transplant?

According to Dr. Yannis, recovery time should take anywhere between one to two weeks. “We recommend two weeks for patients in order for the scabs to have mostly fallen off and for the transplanted hairs to have fully healed and ‘bedded in’ as well as the donor area to have healed.”

How much does it cost to get an eyebrow transplant?

Eyebrow transplants vary in price. Dr. Yannis tells us they usually range between £3,000 to £5,500. He adds: “It will depend on the level of complexity as well as the number of hairs to be transplanted.”

Is it suitable for people with Afro hair?

The short answer is no. Dr. Yannis says: “If a patient who had Afro hair wanted a brow transplant, the hair would continue to grow curly in the eyebrow area as the structure of the hair wouldn’t change. In essence we are simply ‘transporting’ the hair follicles from one place (the back of the head) to another (the eyebrows) so the hair structure remains the same.”

What other things should you consider when opting for eyebrow transplant?

Dr. Yannis tells us that first and foremost an eyebrow transplant patient should make sure that they don’t have any signs of any other types of alopecia (specifically alopecia areata, alopecia totalis and alopecia universalis) or trichotillomania. Other things to look out for include: “the experience of the surgeon in performing eyebrow transplants as they do have a slightly different skillset when comparing to hair transplants.” Dr. Yannis also reminds us that things that should be taken into consideration include age and medical history “to make sure that they are an ideal candidate for an eyebrow transplant,” Dr Yannis adds.
