Some eyebrow hair transplant techniques cause linear scarring at the donor site. However, Dr. Mulholland uses NeoGraft and Artas, automate and robotic FUE techniques that eliminate scarring. These techniques do not require scalpels or incisions.

Every procedure comes with a small chance of potential complications. The best thing patients can do to minimize the likelihood of complications is to select a trusted surgeon. The team at SpaMedica has years of experience performing eyebrow hair transplants and have not seen any of the serious risks associated with this procedure:
The procedure itself is painful due to anesthesia. However, mild pain is common following the process.
Infection is a rare complication, but it is possible. Infection can occur at the donor or transplant site. Preventative antibiotics are used.
While rare, transplant failure is possible. This happens when the root fails to pick up the blood supply. This occurs less than 10 percent of the time and almost never to a significant number of the FUE grafts.
Complications from anesthesia are always possible during a surgical procedure. Dr. Mulholland and the team at SpaMedica take special precautions to reduce the risk.
SpaMedica, Dr. Mulholland is one of Canada’s leaders in follicular unit extraction techniques that do not cause linear scarring and provides hair transplants with natural-looking results.
Micropigmentation and various methods of cosmetic tattooing are alternatives to FUE Transplantation. Older strip graft surgical harvest techniques would also be an alternative, albeit, more painful and with scarification, as opposed to FUE transplant.
Dr. Mulholland and Dr. Tom Bell oversee all eyebrow hair transplant procedures at SpaMedica. Dr. Tom Bell is the former President of the Canadian Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and has performed over 3000 Facelifts, blepharoplasty and cosmetic facial procedures.
The process is done under local anesthesia. The SpaMedica team uses automated or Robotic systems to remove hair follicles from the donor site, which is typical for an eyebrow match, is the side of the scalp.
The hair follicles are harvested using the robotic rotary punch technique, Artas, and NeoGraft. A small needle is used to create the recipient sites in the eyebrow at just the right density and angulation. The FUE grafts are then placed manually in the slits.
To prepare for an eyebrow hair transplant procedure patients should:
Patients can expect mild to moderate pain following the eyebrow hair transplant procedure. It can take up to 4 months to begin to see pleasing growth and the full results are not appreciated until 1 year after the procedure. The results are permanent.
Day of procedure: Patients are discharged with a surgical dressing on the donor site.
1-2 weeks: The recipient site will scab over and the scab will shed on its own. Patients can typically return to work several days following the procedure. Many wear sunglasses to camouflage the scabs for the first week or so.
While it can take 12 days for a full recovery, the signs of the surgery are often gone within 7-10 days. At this point, people feel confident and ready to go out in public.
Patients can expect a low to moderate level of pain. Pronox nitrous oxide (laughing gas) is used during the injection of the local anesthesia to ensure all patients are comfortable.
Hair can continue to appear and grow for up to 12 months following a transplant.
One of the downsides of FUE eyebrow hair transplantation is that the shafts that grow are genetically programmed to be very long, (like in the scalp) and you will have to trim them to match your native eyebrow hair shaft length.
SpaMedica will only use donor follicles from your head for the transplant.
Most patients are 30-50 years old, although those 18 and older can get an eyebrow hair transplant.
