Doctors suggest eyebrow hair transplant to the people having low eyebrow density and shape issues due to trauma, aging, disease, injury, or any other reason. Similarly, eyelash hair problems can be fixed using eyelashes hair transplant. Surgeons nowadays are successfully transplanting hair from the head and other parts of the body to the face to help people get their desired facial hair density, and eyebrow hair transplant in Dubai is one such treatment. The minimally invasive Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE) method is used for this procedure, which makes it a virtually painless and scarless treatment.
Like traditional hair transplant, results of Robotic or FUE eyebrow hair transplant treatment in Dubai are also permanent. You do not need to take any special care of the transplanted hairs. They will grow just like your existing brow hairs. You can pluck and shape your eyebrows as usual. No guarantee is given, as the results may vary from person to person.
You are a candidate for an eyebrow hair transplant in Dubai if:

- You are not happy with the shape of your eyebrows.
- You have lost eyebrows to trauma-burn.
- You are shedding facial hair due to autoimmune disease.
- You have lost the youthful appearance of eyebrows due to the normal aging process.
Main objectives of the eyebrow restoration in Dubai include:
- Restoring eyebrows lost to genetics, disease or burn-traumas.
- Enhancing the shape and thickness of your existing eyebrows.
- Helping you regain a youthful eyebrow line in your old age.
- Full Restoration – It is for people who were born without or with very light eyebrows or those who have patchy eyebrows due to genetics, disease, trauma or burn. Full restoration involves 200+ grafts.
- Enhancement – It is for people who are not satisfied with their eyebrow density and wish to have a thicker line above their eyes. It is also for women who fail to regrow hair due to excessive plucking. Enhancement involves 101 to 199 hair grafts.

Eyebrow transplantation Surgery is a simple surgical procedure performed on an outpatient basis under local anesthesia. It takes 3 to 4 hours on average to complete. Following steps are involved in an Eyebrow Hair Transplant:
- Drawing the eyebrow outline – The surgeon starts with marking the outline of your eyebrows, keeping in mind your desired eyebrow shape and density as well as your facial symmetry.
- Donor area preparation – After outlining the eyebrows, the surgeon moves on to the surgical procedure and prepares the donor area, by trimming or shaving the hair at the rear of your scalp. He will then mark the donor area for smooth and successful extraction of hair follicles.
- Anesthesia – Local anesthesia is then administered to the donor area to numb it and extract hair follicles painlessly.
- Donor hair extraction – Then using the Follicular Unit Extraction method, the surgeon harvests the desired number of grafts. Single hair grafts are extracted for eyebrow hair transplant Dubai. Back of the scalp is used for donor hair harvesting because those hair match eyebrow hairs the most.
- Site preparation – After extracting the donor's hairs, the surgeon prepares the recipient area – your eyebrows – making tiny incisions in specific directions and at correct angles. Special attention is paid to arch creation or enhancing the existing eyebrow arch. Local anesthesia is obviously administered to the brow area.
- Inserting grafts – The last step of an eyebrow hair transplant is inserting these hair follicles. The surgeon then carefully places these follicular grafts in these incisions. The precision of placement is critical for creating an aesthetically appealing, natural-looking brow line.
