The average cost for eyebrow transplant surgery will cost you about $3,975. Eyebrow transplant surgery involves taking healthy hair from one part of the body and transplanting it to the eyebrow area. Typically the back of the head is where the healthy follicles are harvested from and then transferred to the brow to create the desired brow shape.
The eyebrow transplant can be done by using either the FUE (Follicular Unit Extraction) or the FUG/strip methods, but the important thing here is creating the area where the new brow will be placed. This is important because it will help determine the direction and angulation of growth, as well as the aesthetic designing of what should be natural appearing eyebrows that complement the rest of the patient’s facial features.
The transplanted hair will soon start to grow like it did at its original location. Don’t get alarmed when you begin to notice that your eyebrow hairs start falling out two to three week after surgery. The hairs should start to regrow within a few months. Regrowth rate of the transplanted hairs tend to be quite high, although the occasional patient chooses to have a second procedure to achieve a fuller look.
Two or three weeks after your eyebrow transplants you’re going to notice that your eyebrows are starting to look very nice but unfortunately as mentioned before this is about the time that they start to fall out. Over the next six months, you’ll start to notice that your eyebrows are starting to get thicker an thicker.
You’re most likely going to have to trim your eyebrows and sometimes a bit of grooming every couple weeks Because the donor hairs usually are taken from your head so the hair grows much faster.
Why Have An Eyebrow Transplantation?
You might be wondering why an eyebrow transplant is needed when there are other ways of making eyebrows appear fuller. Methods like permanently tattooing eyebrows on or daily application of makeup are a couple ways for getting your eyebrows to appear fuller.
The previous methods do have their drawbacks, one downside is that they are not natural solutions to your problem. An eyebrow transplant takes the hair directly from your body and can be shaped to appear as close as possible to what the patient wants.
Another advantage of eyebrow surgery is that it is virtually painless, and takes approximately 5 to 7 days to recover. Whether you’re getting your entire eyebrow or just a portion of the brow restored recovery time remains pretty much the same.
How long will the procedure last?
The amount of time it takes to perform an eyebrow transplant depends on how many hairs are being transplanted. If less grafts are needed for the transplantation then it should only take two or three hours. If quite a lot of grafts are needed, then three to five hours is more likely. The reason it takes this amount of time is due to the fact that each individual hair must be precisely placed onto the eyebrow.
The recovery time for this procedure is typically five to seven days. Small crusty scabs will appear around each hair during the first week and leave pink spots once they fall off, the pink typically fades over the next few weeks and leaves the area looking natural.
