What is an Eyebrow Transplant?
An Eyebrow transplant can enhance one’s appearance by improving one of your most noticeable facial features. In addition to protecting the eyes, they frame the face and help us to communicate better with facial expression. Many women suffer with thin or transparent eyebrows from over-plucking, genetic loss through the aging process, or were just born with thin, even non-existent eyebrows.
How Does an Eyebrow Transplant Work?
In an eyebrow transplant, hair is taken from the lower occipital region in the back of the head where hair grows in finer, softer and more slowly. Our skilled surgeons pay careful attention to the angle and direction of the transplanted hairs so that the result will look completely natural.
Two Ways to Harvest Hair for Your Eyebrows
Hair will be taken from the donor area in one of two ways, ARTAS or MUHG. We will help you decide which method is best for you.
The ARTAS Robotic Hair Transplant is the first robot assisted FUE procedure. PAI / We Grow Hair was one of the first clinics to use ARTAS technology in the nation.
1No Linear Scar
The MUHG Harvesting technique was co-developed right here in PAI Nashville. Although it involves a paper thin linear scar, the advantages are worth it.

I Have Questions!
Will it grow?
Yes! The hair transplanted from the back of your head to your eyebrows is your very own hair. When it’s moved it will behave the same way it did before it was harvested. That means it will grow more quickly than regular eyebrow hair and you will have to trim it frequently. Over time the transplanted hair will often adopt a slower growth rate more like the native eyebrow hairs.
What does it look like after the procedure?
Does it hurt?
Our doctors use a mild local anesthesia so you should feel very little discomfort during the procedure. Afterwards, you will be prescribed a pain killer for discomfort in the harvesting area, however, many patients simply use Tylenol instead.
Is it permanent?
Yes, because the hair comes from the safe donor area the hairs maintain that same permanent genetic code. However continual plucking can lead to these hairs being killed over time. The only factor you should be aware of is that unlike eyebrow hair, harvested hair from your head will retain its genetic characteristics and continue to grow. This means that it will need to be trimmed periodically.

A Story about Renee
We recently did a beautiful and elegant female model who’d damaged her eyebrows as a young girl. One half of one eyebrow was completely gone so she had no choice but to pencil them in before leaving home each morning. She found PAI Medical Group and now her brows are filling in nicely. Soon she will be able to go all-natural with little to no pencil at all. She is thrilled!Michael Ramsey
Renee says, “It was so easy, I went in and the doctor and I designed my eyebrows with a marker first. Then, he gave me a mild sedative to relax me. Before I knew it, we were done and I was on my way to Florida for vacation.” According to Renee’s eyebrow transplant doctor, “The eyebrows take a special touch. I use very fine, soft hairs and angle them flat against the brow so they look natural.”
