Eyebrows are an important part of the facial anatomy and often times enhances someone’s look and personal appearance. So when a person’s eyebrows are thinner than they would like, or are simply absent from the face, he/she may feel very self-conscious and even embarrassed. Hair Club® offers eyebrow restoration with board-certified doctors specializing in hair transplant, the solution to thinning and missing eyebrows.
Thinning or absent eyebrows may be caused from over-plucking, genetic disorders, or physical trauma but can now be easily treated with eyebrow restoration. Hair Club® offers this procedure through doctors who specialize in hair transplant surgery. Clients who qualify will meet with a Hair Club® board certified doctor specializing in hair transplants to discuss the desired eyebrow length, thickness, arch, and shape, to complement each patient’s facial structure. The procedure involves removal of hair follicles from the donor area and then artistically transplanted with expert precision into the eyebrow area.
COMMON QUESTIONS REGARDING EYEBROW RESTORATION WITH DR. DUNCAN SIMMONS
- What are the causes of thinning or absent eyebrows?
Eyebrow hair is somewhat different from other hair on the human body. The follicles or roots of each individual hair on the eyebrow are delicate and shaving or plucking can cause hair loss even after only one instance.
- Is losing eyebrow hair genetic?
They generally thin with age and are not related to an individual’s genetics. The loss of eyebrow hair can occur due to a condition called Alopecia Areata Universalis Totalis .
- Does it affect more men than women or women than men?
Women are usually more affected because of cosmetic plucking. Younger women can have a condition called trichotillomania*- which is compulsive plucking (they are NOT surgery candidate).
- What is eyebrow restoration and what does the procedure involve?
After a consultation with a board certified doctor specializing in eyebrow hair restoration from Hair Club®, qualified candidates and their Hair Club® doctor will discuss what clients can expect from the procedure. Eyebrow restoration entails taking a small strip of tissue from an area in the back of the head where it is then separated to one hair each called grafts. These grafts are then placed in incisions in the eyebrow area to create a natural look. In most cases, it takes between 300-400 grafts for both sides for a full restoration.
- How long is the procedure, what is the recovery time and is it permanent?
The procedure takes about two hours and the recovery time is usually less than a week, but can vary from patient to patient depending on the extent of the surgery. Bruising and swelling can occur around the eye during the recovery process. Your board certified Hair Club® doctor will explain post-operation treatments and schedule an appointment for follow up. The eyebrow hair restoration surgery is permanent and will require patients to continually trim the hairs as they will continue to grow throughout their lifetime.
- Why should someone consider eyebrow restoration?
Anyone with less than desirable eyebrows or those experiencing the thinning of eyebrows may be a candidate for surgery, depending on the surgeon’s consultation. Not all hair transplant surgeons are trained to do eyebrows, you will need to find a surgeon that specializes in eyebrow restoration.
- What are the benefits of eyebrow restoration?
Eyebrows frame your eyes. Being confident in the way you look allows you to feel great and improve your overall self-image.

*Trichotillomania is a compulsive disorder that causes people to pull out the hair from their scalp, eyelashes, eyebrows, or other parts of the body, resulting in noticeable bald patches. It is currently defined as an impulse-control disorder, but there are disputes about how it should be classified. Trichotillomania is estimated to affect 1% to 2% of the population, or 4 to 11 million Americans, 90% of them women and children.
