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.

"My experience with Harley Street Clinic was exceptional. I was very apprehensive about getting my FUE procedure done, as one would expect. However, Sara reassured me and was very supportive pre and post-procedure. I am so pleased with the result thus far. The new hairline suits my face, and I cannot wait to see the full results. I must thank everyone at the Harley Street Clinic for their support, guidance, and care."I had an outstanding experience with the Harley Street Clinic. Initially, I had some apprehensions about getting my Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) procedure done, as I was unsure about how it would turn out. However, Sara, who assisted me throughout the procedure, was very supportive and helped calm my nerves. She provided me with thorough pre and post-procedure guidance, which was extremely helpful. I am delighted with the results I have seen so far. The new hairline suits my face perfectly, and I cannot wait to see the full results in the coming months. The team at the Harley Street Clinic was very supportive, and I felt like I was in good hands throughout the entire process. I would like to express my gratitude to everyone at the clinic for their support, guidance, and care. The experience was very positive, and I would highly recommend the Harley Street Clinic to anyone looking to undergo a similar procedure.

Thank you to the doctor and team. I was well looked after on the day of surgery and I’m really looking forward to the results. Initial anaesthetic injection was the only bit that I didn’t like but other than that, all good. Would recommend. David

Great surgeon, quick responses. Even drafted a Locum in to cover the original surgeon being on holiday. Very impressed with the set up and the results are very good so far.
To start, their care and procedures are absolutely incredible, if I was to base the review solely on the Dr and nurses I had for my procedure it would be an easy 5 stars. However I am rating only 4 stars, which I would consider slightly generous. I am trans, although very early transition when I had the procedure, and within the consultation I feel I was overlooked of what I wanted. After being asked what I was looking for from the procedure, I said I was trans, and wanted a natural looking feminine hairline (as well as obviously fixing my natural hairline), to which my consultant claimed that a masculine hairline would be easier to look natural. Going along with this, I thought any hairline transplant is better than nothing, and that he was the professional so I should take his advice and bite my tongue. In fairness, I was not wearing make up and was in jeans and a hoodie for the consultation, so maybe what I said just went over his head or maybe he didn’t take me seriously. In hindsight, I wish I didn’t closet myself at the first sign of push back from what I perceived as a medical professional, even talking to my doctor near the end of the procedure I felt comfortable enough to come out to him after what I had initially perceived to be a transphobic clinic (I promise you it’s not), and wish he was the one to do the consultation in the first place. He even said something along the lines of “I’ve done a masculine hairline on you, I wish you had have said something sooner”, and I didn’t want to cause any trouble for my consultant, so I didn’t say anything. All in all, the procedure went perfectly, and has healed really well. Cannot speak any higher of my doctors and nurses (although I have forgotten their names), and although not entirely happy with the hairline I received, it was done perfectly and is 100x better than my natural hairline. To all my trans girlies out there, please make it really clear what you want, look as fem as possible for the consultation, and if they push back at all - don’t let them walk all over you.

I originally took a lot of time researching a hair transplant company within the UK and came across these guys. I have to say that the whole experience has been so smooth from start to finish. Kevin has been nothing but helpful and it was encouraging to know that he only wanted the best for the client. The reason for my hair transplant was traction alopecia and even though I am only 5 days post op I can already see the potential hairline I will have in a few months time. Everything including booking, payment, forms etc was all so easy and straightforward to do with the help of Kevin. The day of the surgery I had my mum come with me and she was able to come into the room to start with before the actual surgery to help choose my hairline and Dr Kalra explained everything not only to me but to my mum also. Then it was onto the actual surgery part of the day and I have to say that while the local anaesthetic injections were pretty painful, the rest of the day was completely relaxing. Dr Kalra and the other staff (sorry I can’t remember their names) totally put me at ease. Everything was explained and if I needed anything all I had to do was ask. Post op I had a lot of bleeding in the donor area which I was worried about but Dr Kalra put my mind at ease straight away. If I had any questions or worries then Dr Kalra and Kevin were always on hand to help. 5 days post op I still have a fair amount of swelling and bruising but it is improving every day and I can’t wait to see results. I’ve booked a PRP session with Dr Kalra for 5 weeks time so I will post another update once that has been done. Thank you to everyone but special thanks to Kevin and Dr Kalra!

The whole experience was very straight forward and professional and the staff were very friendly. I felt I was in safe hands with Dr Kalra and the others who did the surgery and the aftercare process was explained very clearly to me afterwards.
