Will My Eyebrows be Thicker with Eyebrow Transplant Surgery?

Eyebrows, although seemingly unimportant, are a vital component of one’s health and overall appearance. Not only do eyebrows shield our eyes from moisture and other debris, but they also play an important role in our overall appearance, as well as expressing emotions. However, some have little-to-no eyebrow hair due to genetics, a disorder like a thyroid disorder or an autoimmune disease, or may have simply overplucked their eyebrows.

You do not have to live embarrassed or self-conscious about your look due to your eyebrows anymore! If you dislike the shape or want fuller eyebrows, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anil Shah and board-certified physician Dr. Sameea Chughtai offer eyebrow transplant surgery at Aesthetic Scalp in Chicago, IL to help you get the look you desire.

How does eyebrow transplant work?

Eyebrow transplant at Aesthetic Scalp is a state-of-the-art eyebrow restoration procedure that can help Chicago, IL men and women enhance their facial appearance. During a one-on-one consultation with one of our skilled doctors, we will map out an eyebrow shape that will be flattering, will work with your facial features, and meet your desired outcome. Following that, we’ll begin your transplant surgery. At Aesthetic Scalp, we use FUE (follicular unit extraction) to perform eyebrow restoration. The procedure itself lasts between 2 – 3 hours, in which we will extract hair from the back area of your head and transplant it to your eyebrows.

Am I a good candidate for an eyebrow transplant?

You are likely a good candidate for eyebrow restoration if you are sick of penciling in eyebrows, you have them touched up with procedures like microblading, or just wish for fuller, more shapely eyebrows. It’s important that you’re in good health and have straight or slightly wavy hair. Contrary to popular belief, male eyebrow transplant surgeries are just as common as female eyebrow transplant surgeries. Our team is skilled in working with both men and women who wish to adjust the look of their eyebrows.

When can I expect my eyebrow transplant results?

After your eyebrow transplant, we know you’ll be excited to start seeing beautiful, thick eyebrows, but first, you may experience some scabbing, redness, swelling, and even bruising. This is perfectly normal and should go away in less than a week. Someone from our Chicago, IL team will provide you with aftercare instructions for the eyebrow transplant healing process. After about 2 ­– 3 weeks, your transplanted hairs will start to fall out, and your new eyebrow hair will begin to come in. In about 4 ­– 6 months, you’ll start to notice eyebrows that appear naturally thicker, fuller, and beautiful. There may be a need for a follow-up appointment to ensure your eyebrow transplant recovery is going smoothly and your new eyebrow hair is growing in properly, but you should be able to enjoy your new look for a lifetime to come.

If you’re ready to enhance your look or are sick of the time and effort it takes to fill in your unshapely or thin eyebrows, an eyebrow transplant at Aesthetic Scalp may be just what you need. Using cutting-edge technologies, our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Anil Shah and our board-certified physician Dr. Sameea Chughtai are happy to help Chicago, IL men and women get their desired eyebrow look.
