Eyebrow Hair Transplant
An eyebrow transplant is a delicate hair restoration procedure requiring the highest degree of artistry. Dr. Sam Lam performs eyebrow restoration in Dallas at the Lam Institute for Hair Restoration, offering patients an aesthetically -pleasing and permanent option for eyebrow hair loss. Eyebrow hair transplants are recognized as an increasingly important aesthetic component of overall attractiveness, youth, vitality, and in reconstructive cases, normalcy.
Eyebrow Hair Transplant Procedures
Eyebrow transplants are becoming a popular option for women and men alike, and can meet the needs of people experiencing eyebrow hair loss. Eyebrow restoration can also enhance eyebrows that do not have enough density, thickness and definition to achieve desired aesthetic results. The reasons people undergo eyebrow restoration can be as varied as the individuals that opt for the procedure, and can be sought due to illness, surgery, trauma, skin conditions, overzealous eyebrow plucking or naturally thin eyebrows. Dr. Lam has performed eyebrow hair transplants for all of the above reasons, and his results can be seen in before-and-after eyebrow restoration photos on this site. Although some people debate whether they should consider an eyebrow hair transplant or should instead tattoo the eyebrow, many people find that eyebrow tattooing provides inadequately natural results that appear painted on, despite the most artistic attempts at fashioning an eyebrow.
Eyebrow Transplant Technique
When it comes to techniques used during an eyebrow hair transplant, it is imperative that an eyebrow transplant surgeon pay meticulous attention to technical detail, while drawing upon exceptional artistry. The unique flat hair angle, natural curl, and flare-to-fishbone design pattern of the eye brow are all integral to the creation of an attractive and full eyebrow contour that is the ultimate goal of an eyebrow hair transplant.
During eyebrow transplant surgery, a patient’s finest hairs are individually extracted from the back of the head. Grafts typically include only single hairs, although for individuals with truly fine hair, two-hair grafts are occasionally used for transplantation at the inner club portion of the eyebrow. Each hair graft is carefully prepared and is then placed with precision in the areas of hair loss in the eyebrow region. It is extremely important that the angles of each eyebrow hair be placed correctly in order to ensure a natural result. Eyebrow hair angles must be very flat along the skin, have a radiating club shape toward the nose, and a “fish-tail” appearance (i.e., cross-hatching) as the end is approached.
Eyebrow Transplant Cost
The cost of eyebrow transplant surgery will differ based on a number of factors that are unique to the needs of each patient, including the eyebrow replacement coverage area, the thickness and density of the eyebrows, and the number of hair grafts required to create the most natural and visually appealing eyebrows. The cost of eyebrow transplant surgery will be discussed with you during an initial consultation with Dr. Lam based on your unique situation.
Causes of Eyebrow Hair Loss
Eyebrow hair loss can occur due to a variety of reasons. Certain diseases like low thyroid condition can pre-dispose individuals to eyebrow hair loss. Another situation that may benefit from eyebrow transplantation is over-plucking or over-tweezing of the eyebrow area, which can result in a partial or total absence of eyebrow hair. Additionally, trauma or accidents can cause eyebrow hair loss, and surgically -related eyebrow hair loss can result from skin cancer operations or other surgery in this area. Some individuals are simply born with thin eyebrows and are interested in undergoing an eyebrow hair transplant because they desire thicker eyebrows to more dramatically frame their eyes and to make their face and eyes appear more attractive.
Eyebrow Transplant Recovery
It generally takes less than 24 hours to recover from eyebrow transplant surgery. By the day after your surgery, you should be able to resume most daily activities, although it is recommended that you hold off on strenuous activities for about a week to prevent any accidental injury and reduce the risk of bleeding. You can return to work on the day following surgery, although many people choose to take a few days off following the procedure. You will have tiny scabs at the implantation sites and may experience some minor swelling in the area.
Eyebrow Transplant Results
No matter what the cause of eyebrow hair loss may be, the most effective solution to restore eyebrows to a desired state is surgical hair transplantation. Transplanted eyebrow hairs initially grow at the rate of the donor scalp hair, but over time (especially after the first year or two) growth can begin to slow down to a more natural rate of eyebrow hair growth. This change in hair growth is due to the influence of the skin in the eyebrow region and the impact it has on the growth of the transplanted hairs, a condition known as recipient dominance.

About Dr. Lam, Eyebrow Transplant Surgeon
Dallas hair restoration surgeon Dr. Sam Lam is globally known as an eyebrow transplant specialist. His superior artistry and advanced technical skills allow him to create aesthetically pleasing eyebrow hair transplants that transform people’s lives. Dr. Lam is sensitive to the aesthetics of how hairs naturally grow in the eyebrow region and works diligently to make sure that the overall eyebrow shape fits each patient’s ethnicity, gender and facial shape. He applies both artistic and technical skill when performing eyebrow hair restoration, as both are needed to create the most attractive and natural results possible.
Dr. Lam has performed numerous eyebrow hair transplants in both men and women and has seen an almost equal number from both sexes undergoing this procedure. Unfortunately, he has also performed a number of corrective eyebrow restoration procedures in individuals who have undergone previous transplants from less skilled physicians who do not regularly perform eyebrow hair transplants and do not have the proper skills and artistry to achieve effective results.
Eyelash Hair Transplants
Dr. Lam believes that eyelash hair transplants do not succeed with adequate consistency to merit cosmetic intervention. The results that he has seen have fallen far short of the desired aesthetic standard. Even most world experts on eyelash hair transplant believe that it is really only indicated in severe forms of traumatic or congenital absence of eyelash hair. Accordingly, Dr. Lam only performs eyebrow hair transplants and does not offer eyelash hair transplants.
