Eyebrow transplants provide a long-term solution for missing, thin, or sparse brows. The treatment takes donor hairs from your scalp and transplants them to your eyebrows. This allows the patient’s own hair to grow and fill in the brows. The result is a natural-looking, long-lasting hair restoration and full, lush eyebrows, skillfully shaped to match the symmetry of the face.

For beautiful results, choose a hair transplant surgeon specializing in eyebrow hair transplants, like Dr. Cesar Aristeiguieta of ILEA Hair Restoration in Houston, TX. Not all hair transplant centers are comfortable doing eyebrows and beards, but with more than 15 years of experience doing hair transplants,  ILEA Hair takes pride in being able to offer such services to their patients, including eyebrow transplants.

Eyebrow Transplant Before and After*

Nothing speaks to the amazing transformation of an eyebrow transplant surgery like before and after pictures. As with any cosmetic treatment, results may vary.* However, these before and after images depict actual patients of Dr. Cesar and display the results that he is renowned for.

This 33-year-old female with thin eyebrows had tried microblading but did not like the results. She wanted a more natural appearance. Dr. Cesar took follicles from the back of the scalp and transplanted them to the eyebrows. Results shown are 6 months post-treatment.

What Is Eyebrow Transplant Surgery?

Eyebrow Transplant Surgery is a minimally invasive hair restoration procedure. Brow transplants are same-day,  in-office treatments. The procedure typically takes between 3 to 5 hours to perform. The treatment is performed using local anesthesia. General anesthesia (being put to sleep) is not required. Additional medication (a sedative like Valium) may be given to help the patient relax. Patients may listen to audiobooks during the transplant or even take a nap.

What Is the Procedure Like?

Scalp tattooing is ideal for men and women suffering from several kinds of hair thinning, balding, or alopecia. Book your free consultation to see if you are a candidate for this procedure. 

The Consult:

Before any treatment is performed, you will meet with Dr. Cesar at ILEA Hair Restoration to discuss your aesthetic goals and ensure you’re a good candidate for this procedure.

Outlining the new brow:

On the day of the procedure, before the hair transplant surgery, Dr. Cesar intricately draws out the shape and size of the new brow(s.) Once you are fully satisfied with the outline, Dr. Cesar continues with the rest of the procedure.

Harvesting donor hair:

Dr. Cesar takes hairs from the scalp in the area behind your ears. The hair behind the ears is a bit finer and looks similar to natural eyebrow hair. Dr. Cesar shaves a small area and collects the follicles. (Women with medium to long hair can easily conceal the shaved area.) Depending on the patient, 250 to 500 hairs may be harvested.

Transplanting the Hair:

Having harvested the donor hair, Dr. Cesar and his team go to work transplanting the hair. He first numbs the area around your eyebrows to ensure a painless procedure. He then creates small “recipient sites” in the brow area using a fine-gauged needle. Next, he starts the delicate process of grafting each hair follicle into the recipient sites, one by one. Grafting each follicle is like “planting a seed.” The follicle takes root and grows out from the brow naturally. Each brow may receive hundreds of hair implants, depending on the patient’s individual needs.

Each hair follicle must be grafted at a very particular angle. The direction of the brow must follow the hairline. In addition, the density of hair implants must mimic a traditional brow. This is key to natural-looking results. Perfect angulation and correct density require extensive expertise and attention to detail. This is why only a few hair transplant surgeons can perform eyebrow transplants.


After the transplant(s,) you get to admire your new eyebrows and then go home and relax for the rest of the day.

Recovery Time:

Recovery takes one to two weeks. You may experience mild swelling, redness, tenderness, and scabbing/flaking where the hair grafts were placed during that time. Any discomfort is easily managed with oral pain medication.

Eyebrow Transplant Results

Like all hair, transplanted hair goes through the natural hair cycle and will shed from the brows within a few weeks after your procedure. This triggers the regrowth stage of the brow’s hair cycle. The newly grafted follicles produce new hair within 10 to 12 weeks.

Complete results take 6 to 9 months to see fully. But once you’ve achieved this milestone, your eyebrow hair will continue to grow, providing a permanent, natural hair loss solution.

Because Dr. Cesar restores your brows using hair from your scalp, your new eyebrows grow faster than natural brow hair. This requires you to trim your brows every few weeks.

Adriana’s Story

Eyebrow Transplant Review From a Real Patient

Adriana started losing hair from her eyebrows when she was 15. She tried many procedures to restore the appearance of her brows. This included Microblading, a treatment that uses semi-permanent ink to tattoo the appearance of individual brow hairs. This treatment improved the appearance of Adriana brows a little bit. However, microblading is only a temporary solution, and the results still lacked a natural look.

Finally, at age 31, Adriana decided an eyebrow hair transplant from Dr. Cesar Aristeiguieta was the best way to restore her brows.

According to Adriana, the hair transplant “didn’t hurt at all.” In fact, Adriana describes the procedure as “very relaxing,” saying, “It was soothing just to lay there and have people work on you.”

Dr. Cesar is pleased that he and his team “we’re able to reconstruct Adriana’s eyebrows.” Dr. Cesar explains, “Eyebrows may be small, but they play a big role in our overall appearance.” The brows are the “most expressive feature of the face,” he says. “Full, symmetrical eyebrows frame the rest of our facial features. They are crucial for making a face look balanced and youthful.”

I haven’t had eyebrows for 15 years. Just looking at them now, I feel incredible. They look so great.
