Eyebrow transplantation is a cosmetic surgery aimed at restoring or enhancing the appearance of eyebrows to give them a more natural look. It involves taking grafts from the back of the head and transplanting them in the eyebrow area in order to create a fuller, more defined brow. The procedure requires attention to detail to make sure that the implanted hair blends naturally with the existing hair. It is recommended for individuals who have thinning eyebrows due to medical or genetic conditions or due to overplucking.
Eyebrow transplant surgery permanently reconstructs eyebrows almost back to their natural look. Some patients have very scarce eyebrows that have been caused by factors such as genetics, over plucking, burns and accidents, tattoos or thyroid diseases. Eyebrow transplantation restores back the natural look of eyebrows. However, the procedure is very delicate and requires a lot of attention to details especially angle of placement and density.
Dr. Civas has perfected the art of designing eyebrows by putting into consideration the patient’s facial features, resulting in a natural look that is undetectable. He is keen in creating the direction and angle of the recipient sites that mimic the natural anatomy of eyebrows. Only 1s follicular units are used in eyebrow transplant.
Similar to hair and beard transplant, grafts of hair are transplanted from the donor area at the back of the head. Tiny incision sites are made along the eyebrow area, carefully enough to maintain the patient’s natural look. The extracted grafts are then delicately implanted into the incision sites. The size, the shape, the density and angle of placement of the grafts for eyebrow transplant matters a lot and differ from patient to patient.
For example, female and male patients have different eye brow structure. Male patients tend to have thicker, wider and less curved brow, while females have a thinner and more curved brow. Caution must also be taken on factors like ethnicity since some races have thicker brows than others.
The number of grafts transplanted depends on the patient’s appearance; on average however, 100-150 grafts on each brow are a good rough estimate. Grafts are carefully selected with regards to thickness and color; only 1s grafts are transplanted on the eyebrows to maintain the natural fineness. Eyebrow transplant is done by the FUE technique.

The transplanted brows start growing after 2 months, and steadily improve in density with time.
The results are best seen after 6-8 months since this is the time where most transplanted brows have grown. Full results will be seen after 1 year.
If the doctor is well experienced and skilled in eyebrow surgery, the results will completely blend with the patients face and will look natural. However, frequent trimming of the eyebrows is required as they could grow longer than the normal eyebrows.
