Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinics female patient eyebrow transplant before and after

Eyebrow Transplant London

Put simply, an eyebrow transplant is a medical procedure that works by extracting hairs from your donor area (the back and sides of your head) and implant them onto your brow area. The process looks to bolster, and add to already existing eyebrow hairs and, as a result, make your brows look fuller and natural. The eyebrow transplant procedure itself is a delicate and meticulous process and is, therefore, performed by one of our certified hair transplant surgeons.

Find our everything there is to know about the eyebrow transplant procedure with us, Harley Street Hair Transplant Clinics!

What is an eyebrow transplant?

Carried out by one of our certified hair transplant surgeons, an eyebrow transplant is a surgical procedure that looks to counteract the effects of hair loss and restore a fuller look to your brow. Whether you are considering an eyebrow transplant as a solution to ill health, or for any other medical reasons, eyebrow transplants can certainly put you on the path to feeling better about yourself!

As a result of technological advances in the hair transplant industry, eyebrow transplants (sometimes called ‘eyebrow implants’) can now be done using a pain-free procedure called Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). This treatment looks to take individual donor hairs from another area on your scalp and implant them into the eyebrow area, leaving you with a fuller brow area.

Simply, begin the process by booking your free initial consultation. Speak with one of our doctors today, decide upon your medical procedure, and get your natural looking brows!

What treatment method is used for an eyebrow transplant?

Due to major advances in the hair transplant technology, most eyebrow transplants are done using Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE). This procedure looks to take individual hair follicles, using a 1mm punch, from your donor area and directly implant these into your brow area using tiny needles.

However, don’t worry if you’re afraid of needles! During the eyebrow transplant, you will be given local anaesthetic. All you have to do is lie flat and relax!

What separates an eyebrow transplant from a typical hair transplant procedure?

Other than area on the head, the key difference between an eyebrow, and traditional hair transplant is the area from which the donor hair is taken from. Whilst a typical hair transplant looks to take donor hair from the back of the scalp, eyebrow transplants often takes hair from the side of the head (near the ear). Typically, hair from this area is shorter than head hair or body hair and It is better suited to match your existing eyebrow hairs.

So, why is follicular unit extraction used?

FUE has become one of the most popular eyebrow hair transplant methods for a number of reasons. Here’s why:

  • FUE’s extreme accuracy is well suited to the eyebrow transplants – during the FUE procedure, each donor hair is taken one by one. Unlike alternative surgical procedures, that take entire strips of donor hair, the delicate touch that FUE offers enables eyebrow restoration surgery to take place without the need for stitches or obvious signs that you have undergone any form of surgery.
  • The process isn’t time consuming – what separates FUE from other hair transplant methods like that the surgery is quicker than surgical alternatives. FUE does not require any microscopes or separation of larger hair grafts/strips. Moreover, as patients are given only a local anaesthetic, there’s no prolonged hospital stay. This means you can get straight back to your busy life with minimal hassle!
  • FUE has a reduced recovery time when compared to other surgical treatments – given that your donor hair follicles are implanted one by one, this reduces the amount of scarring post-surgery. As a result, this means you should expect a short recovery time and be looking tip-top within 6-7 days.

What should I expect on the day of my eyebrow transplant procedure?

On the day of your eyebrow transplant, be sure to take the day off work. The full surgery will typically take between 3 and 6 hours. As you will be given local anaesthetic during the procedure, you’ll be able to drive and there is no need to stay overnight.

To make your eyebrows look full and natural, between 400 and 1,000 grafts may be required. These grafts will be extracted and re-implanted individually.

Eyebrow Transplant Aftercare

For the subsequent 10-14 days after the surgery, be prepared to expect a small amount of scabbing. The FUE process uses tiny needles to implant hair follicles and so there may be some small scabs that develop. They typically take around 2 weeks to heal.

Feel free to get in touch with us if your donor or recipient site is feeling a little bit sore. We’re happy to help!

In the following weeks and months, it is natural to see your new hairs outgrow the eyebrows that are already there. As the implanted hair follicles have come from your scalp, where they grow quicker and longer, they may need a little bit of extra training. Make sure you give them a good trim and curl in order to have them follow your brow’s natural arch.

Why Have an Eyebrow Transplant?

There are a number of explanations as to why many of our patients come to us requiring an eyebrow transplant. Whilst it is often difficult to avoid the problem of hereditary hair loss, damaged or thin eyebrows can often occur as a direct result of environmental and social influences. Here are some of the explanations as to why many of our patients require an eyebrow transplant:

  • Compulsive Plucking – this is where hair loss, or thinning, occurs as a direct result of over plucking the hairs in your eyebrow area be it as a result of fashion trends or a medical condition known as trichotillomania.
  • Scar Coverage – Many patients often want an eyebrow transplant as a means of covering facial injury sustained in events such as: physical assault, car crashes, or thermal and chemical burns
  • Nutrient Deficiencies – believe it or not, eyebrow hair loss can sometimes occur as a result of not getting enough vitamins into your diet. Vitamins A, E, and Zinc all play an important role in producing natural oils for your hair.
  • Medical Treatments – Many medical treatments (especially cancer treatments, such as: Chemotherapy and Radiotherapy) can often lead to hair loss all over the body.

How Much Does an Eyebrow Transplant Cost?

The cost of eyebrow transplant surgery varies between £3,000-£5,000. This, primarily, is dependent upon the severity of the hair loss. With any hair transplant, the main bulk of the cost comes with the number of grafts needed to be extracted and re-implanted. With FUE, you can expect to pay between £1.89 and £3.99 for every graft that is used.

Whilst this may be a little pricey on first glance, it’s important to note that eyebrow transplantation can put a stop of further loss of eyebrow hair. FUE takes healthy hair follicles from elsewhere in order to promote hair growth in the brow area. As such, this means you should only need one procedure and never have to worry in the future.

Also included in our package is a free consultation with one of our certified doctors, and extensive aftercare to see how your eyebrow surgery has worked.

Are Eyebrow transplants a permanent solution to hair loss?

Whilst there are many procedures on the market today that claim to solve the problems of eyebrow loss, none quite compare to an eyebrow transplant. There is no other treatment offering a long term hair restoration, a natural realistic eyebrow, and an end to further hair loss!

Before they come to our clinic, many patients have conducted research into treatments such as Tattooing and Micro blading. Whilst these can sometimes enable patients to get back to their daily lives without worrying too much about their brows, these procedures neither promote new hair restoration, nor are your brows natural looking.

In addition, these procedures are carried out by amateurs opening the door to side effects such as allergic reactions, infections, further reconstructive surgery. Eyebrow transplants at our clinic are all conducted by medical professionals and provide patients with a safe procedure, natural result, and the capacity for hair regrowth.

Women and eyebrow transplants

It’s certainly no secret that eyebrow transplants are more popular with women, than men. There are many reasons as to why women may be concerned with the look of their brows. Whether it natural thinning as a result of getting older, or one of the social explanations stated above, many women are concerned by eyebrow hair loss or their naturally thin brows.

Moreover, this comes as no surprise when considering the social pressures placed upon women to constantly look their best. With celebrities such as Cara Delevingne and Jessica Alba lauded for their full looking brows, it’s no surprise that women believe healthy eyebrows to be a sign of beauty.

What is quite disheartening is that many of the preliminary measures women take to cover up their thinning brows can actually cause more hair loss! The constant application of makeup can be really damaging for your eyebrow hair.


Eyebrow transplants are a permanent solution that can last a lifetime. Using the FUE technique, you will start to see noticeable growth at four to six months after the surgery. The final result will be visible at around 10 months.

It is generally believed that eyebrow transplants will keep growing in much the same way as hair on the back of the scalp. This means that while most eyebrows will stop growing when they are about a half inch long or shorter, transplanted hair may continue to grow.

During an eyebrow transplant procedure, local anaesthesia will be used to minimise pain and discomfort. Medication can be used to help manage any discomfort, and many patients report only minimal discomfort during the procedure. Some patients may choose to sleep, listen to music, or watch television during the procedure.

Patient Testimonials

Aside from achieving fantastic results, we believe that keeping in touch with our patients before, during and after their hair transplantation procedure is paramount – it helps to keep our patients feeling calm and in control. We’re always on hand to provide guidance, support and aftercare advice. Time and again, our patients tell us that this is what sets us apart from other clinics.

Very few can deliver a professional service whilst ensuring that all clients receive first -class personalised treatment, turning what can be a daunting experience into something of relative ease. Both Kevin, Dr Karla, and their surgical team certainly did this (and then some!) Once my mind was made up to have hair loss treatment, I was keen to get my transplant done asap. Kevin exceeded all my expectations with this - it’s hard to believe that my journey from first consultation to surgery happened in the space of one month. Efficiency did not stop there - on the day of surgery, my transplant was completed in less than 6 hours, all the while ensuring that I was comfortable and pain-free. Security is the best word that comes to mind to describe Dr Karla’s care -you know you’re in experienced hands! Now I can look forward to the results over the next few months, with the added peace of mind that the Harley Street Clinic team are only a phone call or email away to address any concerns. They will be the first name I will recommend to anyone looking for effective hair loss treatment, and I hope to make use of their service again in the future should I need it.

From my first contact with Kevin he has provided great customer service, responding quickly or questions, offering consultations and giving me time to make my decision (not a salesman like I have experienced before). He is extremely knowledgeable in this area and so far everything he has told me has been true! Dr Kalra is a fantastic doctor and he knows everything there is to know about hair loss, I trust him completely. The surgery went smoothly, some of the injections hurt at the start but after that it’s the sitting still for hours that is the hardest part. The nurses were also brilliant they were happy to talk to you if you initiated conversation but didn’t chew your ear off if you were quiet. It is 4 months since my surgery and the the hair in the top of my head is almost fully covered with a few thinner spots where I previously had no hair at all, it seems to be noticeably thickening up weekly so I think one more month and no one would ever know I used to be bald! The donor area was completely healed and unnoticeable after 4 weeks. The aftercare has also been great, I have followed the instructions and I am very happy with the results so far.

I got a hair transplant and PRP for my hair. Im 19 years old and it’s the best decision I made so far. Manchester hair transplant clinic have been amazing. They were brilliant at welcoming me into getting a hair transplant and amazing at doing the job right. I will defiantly be going to them later on in my life if/when another is needed due to my age. I would highly recommend their service to anyone interested 😊

So after years of thinking about having a hair transplant i finally phoned up Harley street hair transplant clinic and spoke to Kevin who was extremely helpful answering all my questions.The transplant was on the 29th Jan 2022 by Dr Kalra and his team who made me feel really relaxed and comfortable. They were all very professional and very friendly. The procedure went great, no pain at all and I was extremely happy with the results. I can’t thank Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team enough, even the after care was unbelievable, thanks again guys. Highly recommend, 5 star service all day long. Cheers Richie
I was quite scared before going into surgery, but Dr kalra reassured me the procedures were straight forward and easy going. And he was amazing and so were the team. Everyone was polite and professional and I will recommend this team to anybody else 🙂

Had my FUE hair transplant on Saturday 5th February 2022 for receding hair line and balding crown. I’ve been thinking about a hair transplant for the last 2 years, I’ve heard bad stories and good stories as you do when you look through the internet or watching YouTube videos. I spoke with Kevin in January, great with explaining everything and putting me at ease (as I naturally worry about anything and everything). I wanted the surgery done as soon as possible after speaking to Kevin as everything felt right. Kevin arranged this for me and before I knew it here I am after surgery thinking what was I ever worried about and why didn’t I get this done sooner, however, things happen for a reason and that reason I hadn’t had it done sooner was I hadn’t found the right place or team to do the transplant and I’m glad that happened as I found Harley street hair transplant. I would highly recommend Kevin - Dr Kalra and his team. Thank you all for giving me my confidence back and making me feel like a different person. I am 4 days into my recovery and feel great. If you are reading this review and are like me with worrying about everything then please stop worrying, you are in safe hands before, during and after the procedure with Kevin, Dr Kalra and his team, just go for it. Thank you all again 😁

Massive Thankyou to all the team . After months of indecision as to wether to have a hair transplant or not ,i finally made the decision to make that first call,im so glad i did,im so pleased i went with Dr Khalra and his team. I first spoke to Kevin he come across as a very honest and genuine guy who was certainly very knowledgable about all the procedure ,after speaking to him i decided that these were the people i wanted to go with. On the day of the procedure i was very nervous,but on meeting Dr Kalra and his team i was immediately put at ease ,he was very reassuring and such a lovely friendly guy as was his team,It was all very proffesionally done in a lovely clean and modern clinic in Bury. Throughout the day i felt i was in really good hands with Dr Khalra and his team Naz and Raz ( hope ive spelt it right). Im now 7weeks into my Fue hair transplant and looking forward to the coming months to see the results . Ive no hesitation in recommending Dr Khalra Kevin and the team ,they are definitely the right people to go to if you are considering having a procedure done . Again i cant thank you enough . Mark..
