Many men and women struggle with eyebrow hair loss. This loss can happen for no real reason at all, leaving several individuals at a loss for how to recover their hair. Most cosmetic solutions, like make-up, semi-permanent eyebrow tattoos, or microblading are aimed at giving women fuller eyebrows. But a stronger, more defined brow can benefit men too–which is there is an increase of male eyebrow transplant procedures.
Most people who are experiencing eyebrow hair loss and are in good health can be considered as candidates for an eyebrow hair transplant procedure. People who are experiencing eyebrow hair loss due to genetic factors, excessive plucking, or trauma can benefit the most from this procedure.
The Case for A Masculine Eyebrow Reconstruction
The eyebrows frame the face and can create a lasting impression on people. In fact, a study from researchers at MIT discovered that eyebrows are more important in recognizing faces than eyes, according to how our brains are naturally wired. Therefore, not having well defined brows can cause individuals to feel awkward about how they look. The patient below, for example, was embarrassed by his eyebrow hair loss and wanted to reconstruct his brows for a more youthful appearance, so he sought out Dr. U for a consultation.
Male Eyebrow Transplant
After an initial discussion, Dr. U recommended an eyebrow transplant using 300 grafts. He harvested these follicles from the patient’s leg using his patented Dr.UPunch Rotor ™ . While other clinics may use the more conventional donor area on the back of the head, Dr. U’s advanced FUE system, Dr.UGraft, expand the hair type options for the patient’s hair follicle graft supply. This means that finer hairs that mimic eyebrow, and even eyelash hair, can be extracted from body donor areas. Examples include leg and nape hair.
Dr. Umar reconstructed the patient’s eyebrow into a more masculine, slightly rounded arch. The added density makes his eyebrows more prominent on his face, which gives him a more youthful, energetic appearance. The patient was more than happy with the results of his eyebrow reconstruction surgery.

Watch the patient’s journey from eyebrow hair loss to total reconstruction with the Dr.UGraft method. The video below also includes the patient’s testimony that his new eyebrows “balance out [his] face” and get him a lot of compliments.
It is important to understand the realistic outcomes of an eyebrow transplant procedure. Each eyebrow can receive from 50 to 400 grafts, depending on the extent of loss or the patient’s desired density. Some patients choose to receive another eyebrow transplant later on for more density. People who are experiencing eyebrow hair loss due to alopecia areata, frontal fibrosing alopecia, or other medical conditions may not be good candidates for the procedure due the potential of unreliable growth after transplant.
