Hair transplantation clinics across the UK offer eyebrow transplants to repair overplucked eyebrows, fill in patchy areas, or create fuller, more shapely brows. In 2022, 13.5% of all hair transplant procedures were performed on the eyebrow, making this the second most common hair transplant procedure after scalp hair restoration .
However, not all eyebrow transplantation clinics offer the same value. To get the best possible results, you need to know the cost of a quality eyebrow transplant surgery.
In this exclusive cost analysis, we’ve reached out to 46 UK clinics to reveal the state of eyebrow restoration treatment across the UK. Here, you’ll learn:
Hair loss in the eyebrow area has several potential causes. These include:
Eyebrow transplants are purely cosmetic, but they can elevate your appearance and confidence to new levels. Here are some of the benefits of getting an eyebrow transplant surgery:
Eyebrow trends tend to change, just like hairstyles. So unlike microblading and eyebrow tattoos, having full natural eyebrows as a base enables you to shape them however you like.
Eyebrow transplants are a straightforward cosmetic procedure that don’t require an overnight hospital stay or general anaesthetic. However, eyebrow transplants can go wrong if you don’t choose a reputable clinic with a skilled, experienced surgeon.

The number of grafts you need for your eyebrow transplant can vary. Each of these eyebrow sections requires a different number of grafts. Generally, you may need:
Standard eyebrows need approximately 600 grafts in total, while thicker brows can require more than 1,000. The Wimpole Clinic’s eyebrow transplant specialist, Marie, says:
“Graft numbers can range from 50 grafts to over 1000 grafts. It depends on size, light density, really close density, the angulation, design of angulation. We classify eyebrows into 3 main areas: head, body and tail.”
Our research shows that eyebrow transplants in the UK cost £3,820 on average. Here’s a breakdown of our findings:
Of the clinics surveyed, four offered a fixed price eyebrow transplant. These prices ranged from £2,200 to £4,600.
95% of clinics offered free consultations. Just one of the clinics that responded said they charged a flat £75 fee for a consultation. Considering that so many clinics offer a free initial appointment, it’s not necessary to pay for consultation in the UK.
This table gives a breakdown of how much you can expect to pay for eyebrow hair transplants in 18 UK cities:
54% of all UK eyebrow transplant clinics are based in London. 25% are on Harley Street.
Harley Street is famous for its quality private surgery specialists. Therefore, it’s not surprising that so many clinics are based here. The Wimpole Clinic on Harley Street has been performing successful eyebrow transplants for more than 45 years.
At an average cost of £4,600, eyebrow transplant prices are higher on Harley Street than elsewhere in the UK. This is due to the fact that you’re paying for the skill and experience of some of the best surgeons in the country, although prices here are only slightly higher than in places like Brentwood and Newcastle.
Elsewhere in London, you’ll pay just over the national average.
Choosing a clinic to perform your eyebrow surgery is a big decision. After all, a bad or complicated eyebrow transplant can actually have a greater psychological impact than having sparse or patchy eyebrows .
Therefore, it’s essential that you know who your surgeon will be, and that you’re confident they can create a look you love.
Some clinics advertise eyebrow transplant services, but don’t reveal who the surgeon will be.
Meaning that until you arrive at the clinic on the day of your surgery, you have no idea of the credentials of your surgeon, and whether they have the skill and experience to perform a successful, high-quality eyebrow transplant.
In our research, 62% of clinics with a visible surgeon came back with a price. By comparison, just 11.7% of websites without a surgeon even responded to our request for information. This rings alarm bells. Clinics that don’t respond to a sales enquiry may be less likely to offer a genuine service.
Our research also suggests you’ll actually pay less for an eyebrow transplant at a clinic with a visible surgeon:
As a result, we generally recommend you avoid clinics that don’t list a surgeon on their website. Not only will you pay more, but you also don’t have the information you need to make an informed decision regarding their surgical skills.
After all, it’s your face we’re talking about — so don’t take any unnecessary risks.
