Blackhawk Hair Restoration offers expert eyebrow restoration in Danville, CA. If you are frustrated with eyebrows that are sparse or thin, then an eyebrow transplant might be the ideal solution. But how exactly do they work? In the following FAQ guide, the transplant specialists at the Bay Area’s most advanced hair restoration center delve into the science behind eyebrow growth and explore how transplant techniques can stimulate regrowth.

What Causes Thin Eyebrows?

Several factors can contribute to thin or sparse eyebrows. Genetics plays a significant role, as some individuals naturally have fewer eyebrow hairs or experience hair loss in this area over time. Other common causes include over-plucking, hormonal changes, medical conditions like alopecia areata, and certain medications.

How Does Eyebrow Transplantation Work?

Eyebrow transplantation is a cosmetic procedure that involves harvesting hair follicles from a donor area—typically the back of the scalp—and implanting them into the eyebrow region. The two primary techniques used for eyebrow transplants are follicular unit transplantation (FUT) and follicular unit extraction (FUE). FUE is more commonly preferred for eyebrow transplants due to its precision and minimal scarring.

What Is Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)?

FUE is a minimally invasive hair restoration technique that involves extracting individual hair follicles from the donor site using a specialized tool. These follicles are then carefully transplanted into the recipient area, in this case, the eyebrows. FUE allows for precise placement of the follicles, resulting in natural-looking and permanent results.

How Do Transplanted Follicles Stimulate Eyebrow Regrowth?

When hair follicles are transplanted into the eyebrow area, they continue to grow in their new location. The transplanted follicles are genetically programmed to grow hair, just like the original eyebrow hairs. Additionally, the presence of these transplanted follicles can stimulate the surrounding tissue and promote the growth of new eyebrow hairs. This process helps to thicken and enhance the appearance of the eyebrows over time.

What Is the Recovery Process Like?

Recovery from an eyebrow transplant is relatively quick and straightforward. Patients may experience some minor swelling, redness, and scabbing in the transplant area immediately following the procedure, but these symptoms typically subside within a few days. It is essential to follow your surgeon’s post-operative instructions carefully to ensure proper healing and optimal results.

How Long Does It Take to See the Results?

The results of an eyebrow transplant are not immediate, as it takes time for the transplanted follicles to establish themselves and begin producing new hair. Most patients start to see a noticeable improvement in their eyebrows within a few weeks to a few months after the procedure. Full results are typically visible within six to twelve months, as the transplanted hairs continue to grow and mature.

Are Eyebrow Transplants Permanent?

Yes, eyebrow transplants are considered permanent. Once the transplanted follicles take root and start producing hair, they will continue to do so for the rest of your life. However, it is essential to note that the natural aging process and other factors may still affect the appearance of your eyebrows over time.

Choosing the Right Style: Designing Your Beard/Mustache Transplant

Choosing the Right Style: Designing Your Beard/Mustache Transplant

Beard and mustache transplants have given full facial hair customization to many patients, such as those who:

  • Can’t grow facial hair at all
  • Can develop facial hair in some spots naturally, but not in every area they want it
  • Only experience patchy, inconsistent facial hair growth
  • Are transgender and physically transitioning to male


But since hair transplantation is surgery, it’s important to plan exactly where you want the additional hair ahead of time to avoid extra follow-up treatments and an extended recovery. You’ll have plenty of options to consider when crafting your ultimate masculine look.


Mustache and Beard Transplants in the Bay Area

At Blackhawk Hair Restoration in Danville, California, we provide multiple types of hair rejuvenation treatments depending on patient needs and aesthetic goals. During your initial consultation, you will be seen by one of our hair restoration experts at our state of the art facility led by Dr. Stephen J. Ronan.

After carefully reviewing your medical history and observing your symptoms, we will also need to make sure you have enough donor hair available to obtain your desired look. Additionally, you’ll want to learn how the new hair on your face will complement your other facial features.

Based on these considerations, your objectives, and other patient-specific factors, your new style could include adding, reshaping, or enhancing one or more of these facial hair details: 



Of course, deciding whether or not you prefer to have hair above the upper lip is crucial. While some patients might only want to add the mustache, don’t forget that it also goes hand-in-hand with a goatee or beard (but not always). 



Chin hair is also on the front of the face (and an equally important part of the goatee). There are two main sections of chin hair: the medial pillar and the lateral pillars.

The medial pillar runs directly from the center of the bottom lip to the middle of the chin. Meanwhile, the lateral pillars extend down on either side from the corners of the mouth. You could add hair to just the medial pillar, the two lateral pillars, or all three.


Genian Area

Past the lateral pillars (before the sideburns) are the genian areas. These include all the hair on the cheeks, stretching down to the jawline. When planning your new beard, one thing to think about is how high you want the genian areas to go.



While sideburns on their own might not be as popular as they once were, they’re often a critical component of a rugged beard. Do you want them to be just as thick as your beard? Or should they get gradually thinner as they approach your scalp?
