Eyebrow Hair Transplant in Dubai

An eyebrow hair transplant is a cosmetic procedure to enhance the appearance of eyebrows affected by hair loss. It involves a surgeon moving follicles from a hair-rich region of the body to the eyebrow areas with less or no hair. It is typically performed using the FUE method, but FUT may be considered in some cases. An eyebrow hair transplant can turn your sparse or out-of-shape eyebrows into symmetrical, dense, and aesthetically pleasing brow arcs.

Reasons You May Need Eyebrow Transplant

  • Burns to the eyebrow area
  • Overplucking brow hairs
  • Hair loss due to hypothyroidism
  • Alopecia areata

Ideal Candidates for Eyebrow Hair Transplant

You are likely a good candidate for an eyebrow transplant in Dubai if:

  • You are not satisfied with your eyebrow density or shape.
  • You have naturally thin eyebrows.
  • You have lost brow hair due to trauma or scars.
  • You have lost hair due to a medical treatment.

The Eyebrow Transplant Procedure

Eyebrow transplantation is a simple surgical procedure usually performed on an outpatient basis. It may require 3 to 4 hours for completion and typically involves the following steps:

  • Anesthesia – In the first step, local or general anesthesia is administered, depending on the patient’s preferences or treatment requirements.
  • Donor hair extraction – Using the Follicular Unit Extraction method, the surgeon harvests the desired number of grafts. These grafts are usually extracted from the scalp area above the ears.
  • Site preparation – After that, the surgeon prepares the recipient area – your eyebrows. They make tiny incisions in specific directions and at correct angles, paying particular attention to arch creation or enhancement of the existing eyebrow arch.
  • Inserting grafts – The last step of an eyebrow hair transplant is the insertion of the hair follicles. The surgeon carefully places every one of these follicular grafts in the incisions at a particular angle to create an aesthetically appealing and natural-looking brow line.


  • After the surgery, expect the treated areas to be sore and tender for a day or two.
  • Recovery varies; some patients may feel comfortable returning to work the next day, while others may need more time.
  • The next morning, dampen your eyebrows slightly to remove scabs or dried crusts.
  • When you wash your eyebrows, don’t forget to apply the antibiotic ointment the doctor prescribes.
  • Bruising after a transplant is also common, but it usually subsides within 5 to 7 days.
  • Scabbing typically resolves within 7 to 10 days, but this can vary based on individual healing processes.

Post-op Care

  • Follow your surgeon’s specific advice regarding washing your eyebrows post-surgery.
  • Use cold compresses to deal with any post-operative swelling or bruising.
  • Start taking prescribed medicines right after the surgery.
  • Follow your surgeon’s specific advice regarding the use of aspirin and other blood thinners post-surgery
  • Avoid touching or rubbing your brow area for the first few days post-surgery or as your surgeon advises.
  • Avoid picking at scabs to prevent infection and ensure optimal healing of the transplanted area.
  • Avoid direct sunlight exposure.


  • The transplanted follicles will shed in a month and enter a dormant phase for about 3 to 4 months.
  • You will likely notice hair growth in your eyebrows 4 to 5 months after the surgery.
  • Full results may appear after 8 to 12 months.
  • These timelines are approximate and can vary based on individual healing processes.
