However, if the person prefers a more intense eyebrow appearance or if the transplanted eyebrows are damaged, they can only transplant again at the end of the first year. There is no disadvantage or harm for the patient to have a second transplant.

Eyebrows start to grow 3 months after transplantation. The eyebrows take their final shape after about 7-8 months following the operation.
