As the entire eyebrow transplant procedure is non-invasive, you will likely be able to get back to work again within a day or two. You will also likely be able to resume your regular routine without any sort of hassle. The eyebrow restoration procedure is a form of follicular unit extraction (FUE) since hair is extracted from the Donner area the same way however, hair is implanted into tiny recipients sites in the eyebrow instead of balding areas of the scalp.
