In the past, eyebrow transplants have been a procedure that was targeted at women. However, we have seen many patients who are looking for eyebrow transplants, both male and female. Eyebrow transplants are a permanent and natural-looking way of restoring or just improving existing eyebrows or the lack thereof.
Eyebrow Transplant in Toronto
Some eyebrow transplants can just be a quick touch-up, usually in the area of a scar or because of the lack of hair in a small part of the brow. These procedures are perfect for the SmartGraft FUE technology, because it is possible to harvest only the small number of grafts that are necessary. Even if it takes only 50 grafts to touch up this area, it is possible to easily take out that small amount without leaving any visible scars. The procedure can also be done in a fairly simple non-invasive procedure that can be completed in one day. In addition, if you are dealing with scar tissue and using SmartGraft FUE technology, the great thing about this type of procedure is that it can also be used to “punch out” the scar tissue and therefore shrink this area so that the hairs that are transplanted can almost completely cover and disguise the reason why the patient came in the first place.

Other eyebrow transplants involve more grafts and will take a little longer, but they still follow the same process. The great advantage of the SmartGraft technology though is that it has a built-in graft counter that allows the hair transplant team to keep track of the harvesting time, therefore allowing a very quick and smooth transition to the implantation stage.
The other advantage of the SmartGraft technology is that it has a built-in containment unit that will keep the grafts in their best condition until they are ready for the transplant. Previous technology did not have this feature, meaning that the process would need to be stopped for the canister containing the grafts to be switched out, emptied, and counted manually. This new feature means less manual handling of the grafts as well as less chance of damaging the grafts. As a result, the transplant has an even higher success rate.
An eyebrow transplant is a very specialized form of hair transplant that requires an artistic eye to create an aesthetically pleasing shape for the eyebrows. Dr. Torgerson has a talent for being able to envision the final result and design an eyebrow transplant strategy that will definitely attain the final result that the patient is looking for. The fact that Dr. Torgerson is also a facial cosmetic surgeon means that, besides years and years of training and experience, he has a natural talent for being able to create a design that will suit the patient’s individual face and eye symmetry.
Toronto’s Natural Microblading Alternative
Can you do a hair transplant on eyebrows instead of tattoo or microblading? While powder brows, feather stroke, and eyebrow microblading have gained popularity in recent years, there are limitations to using this tattoo method for restoring brows.
Disadvantages of Microblading
Eyebrow tattoos aren’t permanent, and they do require a touch-up every year or two. The reason is the semi-permanent ink used for “permanent” makeup, which is designed to fade. The old-school, permanent eyebrow tattoos that you may have seen look blue or green and blurry, because that type of ink doesn’t age well in the face.
Some people believe that choosing microblading – which creates small hair-like cuts, then inserts ink – will be the less expensive option. However, Toronto eyebrow transplant costs can be far more economical eventually. Redoing your ink, correcting uneven or blurred work, or laser tattoo removal are often hidden costs of microblading.
Sometimes people discover that they are not good candidates for microblading because they have oily skin. In certain skin types, permanent makeup does not “take” or heal well, which means wasted time, money, and discomfort.
Are Eyebrow Transplants Safe?
Microblading may seem just like makeup, but it is not painless. Any time the skin is broken, you accept some degree of discomfort, risk of infection, and necessary healing time.
Eyebrow transplantation is performed by qualified professionals in an accredited, surgical facility where safety and quality control are carefully adhered to. Unfortunately, many eyebrow tattoo shops are not regulated to the same standard.
Eyebrow transplants are surgical procedures, even though the incisions made are extremely tiny and heal quickly.
The artistic and technical skill of your eyebrow transplant professionals is especially important. When you select a high-quality, real eyebrow hair restoration, you can anticipate hairs that follow the natural growth direction, density, and shape. The results look exceptional – even up close! Your brows will look just like healthy, balanced brows should, without tattoo lines, shading, or a “make-up” appearance seen up close using other methods.

FUE Brow Restoration
An eyebrow transplant is a very specialized form of a regular scalp hair transplant and works in a similar way. We still take the hairs from the donor area (typically found on the back and the sides of the head). Once we have harvested the required amount of grafts (usually somewhere in the range of 200 to 400 grafts, based on the requested outcome), we transplant those grafts into the eyebrow area to fill in missing hairs or to redesign an eyebrow shape. When making the sites for the grafts to be transplanted into, it is very important that they are done at a very specific angle so that the hairs grow in a natural way after the procedure.
Making sure that the hairs are implanted in a very specific way is of the utmost importance. If the follicles have been implanted at a wrong angle or they have unnatural placing, they will eventually grow out in a way that does not give the result that was originally intended. Some grafts will also have anywhere from 1 hair to 4 hairs. This is also important to keep in mind when placing the grafts. Single hair grafts are great for the outline and design of the eyebrow, whereas multiple hair grafts, if placed correctly, can add great density to specific areas. The other thing to remember is that these hairs do come from your head. Therefore, they will grow faster than the original eyebrow hairs. This means that a higher level of grooming will be necessary for the first year or so. Cutting or trimming is preferred over plucking though! You should never pluck a hair that is within your desired eyebrow area. The only time that plucking should be used is if the hair is a stray and does not fit within your ideal eyebrow shape.
Here are a few tips for how to groom your eyebrows
especially after an eyebrow transplant surgery
You can use a Q-Tip moistened with water to clean off any scabs from the transplant after 7 days. An eyebrow comb or even a clean mascara wand can be used to brush the hairs downward. Trim the excess length off using fine scissors. Repeat this step except by combing upwards and removing excess length. Once you have reached the desired length, use the same brush to comb the hairs back to their natural position. 2 weeks after your eyebrow transplant surgery, it will be safe to start training your eyebrow hair to go in the desired direction. You can do this by applying very gentle pressure and massaging the hairs with your index fingers. Use long strokes, starting from the inner corner and moving to the outer corner. You can use a small amount of eyebrow wax to hold it in place if you wish.
Early on in your recovery, you may have some redness in the transplanted area. This should last for only the first 3 to 4 weeks. If you wish to disguise this redness, an eye pencil or eyeshadow may be used 10 days after the surgery date. Some of the transplanted hairs may fall out around Week 2. This is normal and expected. The follicle is still there and will start producing brand new hairs around months 3 and 4.
