FUE for the Brows: Why This Facial Hair Transplant Is Trending

FUE For The Brows

Why This Facial Hair Transplant Is Trending

FUE for eyebrows is a form of facial hair transplant that’s quickly increasing in popularity. If you haven’t heard of this trend, you may think, Am I reading this correctly? Eyebrow transplants? Yes, it’s true.

The once-coveted thin eyebrow with a dramatic arch is out of fashion, and thick, youthful brows are in. Thanks to Hollywood, Instagram, and renowned surgeons like Dr. Cory Torgerson, 2019 has Toronto FUE (follicular unit extraction) patients tossing their eyebrow pencils and opting for natural-looking, real hair restoration.

While there’s been several makeup and tattoo products marketed to fill eyebrows, there’s a degree of skill and creativity required to maintain their symmetry. Many busy men and women simply don’t want to fuss with daily eyebrow maintenance, and they don’t want an obviously made-up look either. Thankfully, the skilled professionals at the Toronto Hair Transplant Clinic offer lasting, natural hair transplant solutions.

FUE for the Face

What Started the Trend?

While severe tweezing was once common, people are leaning towards a more natural look, with eyebrows being a prominent facial feature. Even uni-brows a la Frida are making an appearance! The resurgence of thicker eyebrows can be attributed to social media influencers, fashion magazines, and advertising. Celebrities also impact procedure popularity. A Google search will turn up celebs like Kim Kardashian or Megan Fox who’ve reportedly undergone transplants.

Extraction

FUE Hair Transplant

Extraction is often used to describe the non-surgical removal of hair or other tissue. Aestheticians are known for pore-cleansing extractions to beautify the complexion. Hair can be extracted with tweezers. This word describes the removal of hair follicles and tissue using a hand tool to “extract” grafts quickly and smoothly before reimplantation.

In a sense that describes the process, but it doesn’t paint the whole picture. It may also give the impression that hair transplants are non-surgical and non-invasive and can be performed by anyone. It’s that concern that prompted the change. While today’s FUE in Toronto is virtually scarless and the recovery faster than ever, it IS a surgical procedure and does require high technical skill. Safety risks are low because the incisions are so tiny, but they are incisions, nevertheless.

Excision

FUE Hair Transplant

Popular culture and celebrity styles influence style trends, but there are other reasons why a person may want or actually need real eyebrow hair implantation. Consider the following circumstances:

  • Medical treatments such as chemotherapy list hair loss as a side-effect. In some cases, the fallout can be permanent.
  • Patients suffering from behavioural or anxiety disorders have been known to compulsively pluck hair from their own body, notably the head and face.
  • Years of excessive tweezing, especially in early teens, can have a significant impact on the brow line. It can affect the future shape of the brow and hair growth going forward.
  • Injury or trauma to the brow bone can cause scarring. Scar tissue closes off hair follicles, preventing future growth.
  • Following the removal of a brow piercing, hair may grow in a peculiar direction. Scarring can also occur in the hair growth area if the piercing was in place for an extended period.
  • With normal ageing, hair and skin changes are common.

If your face is like a picture, then your eyebrows are the frame. When you feel that your appearance is out of proportion, it may lead to low self-esteem. In Toronto, FUE is a practical, lasting solution to replace eyebrow hairs.

How is FUE Done for Eyebrows?

There isn’t a significant difference in the general process when an FUE hair transplant is performed on the eyebrow. The follicle grafts are harvested from your donor site and transplanted into the recipient area where needed. However, with FUE eyebrow transplants, a surgeon may choose to use hair from behind the ear, as it most closely resembles the hair of the brow. Follicular unit extraction methods allow for very tiny, micro-hair graft extractions, which implant single strands and leave barely a trace in the donor zone.

Not only eyebrows; beards can be filled in too!

Male celebrities and athletes have been sporting some pretty robust facial hair in the last few years. Upscale barbershops can hardly keep up with the demand for styling and shaping these symbols of manliness. For men who are unable to grow uniform facial hair, this can make them feel a little less virile or masculine. A person’s eyebrows and other facial hair define a signature look and face the world front and center each day.

A facial hair transplant is a work of art

Under the care of a professional hair transplant surgeon like Dr. Torgerson, your face is an artist’s canvas. Using the gold-standard NeoGraft or SmartGraft systems, Dr. Torgerson meticulously extracts hair follicles, then implants them into the recipient site at natural angles and direction. Because symmetry is of paramount importance, Dr. Torgerson will go to painstaking lengths to ensure that each individual hair is strategically placed.

Prices range geographically. The digitally advanced micro-surgical instruments used to make hair transplantation more efficient and effective carry high overhead costs. Each graft may contain 1 to 4 hairs, and on average, it takes a few hundred to form optimal brows. The beard can utilize thousands of grafts, depending on the desired coverage. Your procedure and its pricing will be entirely customized to suit your needs.

The cost per FUE graft is $4 to $6 + HST. (Prices are subject to change.)
