Eyelash hair transplant
Monday, 30 March 2015 13:26

Loss of eyebrow or eyelash hair can make an individual feel very self-conscious about his or her appearance, and new hair transplantation techniques can often restore the hair. You often don’t realize the full impact that eyebrows or eyelashes can make on the total facial appearance until you see a person without them.

The donor hairs come from the scalp which, when become eyelashes, continue to grow for a lifetime and therefore need to be trimmed typically once a month.  To provide a natural appearance, the hairs are transplanted one a time.  This is a very delicate procedure, requiring perfect placement of these hairs that are angled at just the right direction and position to mimic natural growth.

Hair transplantation has been used successfully for many years to fill out patchy or partial eyebrows, to restore absent eyebrows, and even camouflage scars within the eyebrow area. Eyelash transplantation is a more recent procedure. The procedure should be performed by a surgeon who specializes exclusively in surgical hair restoration.

Eyebrow Hair transplant

Eyebrow hair loss can occur for several reasons, and is most commonly associated with the following:

+ Physical trauma.

+ Systemic or local disease.

+ Excessive plucking, typically to reshape the eyebrow.

+ Trichotillomania (TTM), or self-inflicted obsessive compulsive plucking.

+ Medical or surgical treatments like radiation therapy, chemotherapy.

+ Genetics

The procedure for restoring eyebrows and eyelashes involves the individual placement of single hairs in the natural growth pattern of your previous hair. The meticulous placement of as many as several hundred hairs can restore eyebrows and eyelashes to their most natural appearance.

In approximately two weeks, the transplanted hair follicles will fall out, which is a normal part of the process. The new follicles will start to grow in within about 3 months. It can take up to a year before you see the final results, which will be thicker, permanent, and natural looking.

It should be noted that some of the donor hairs may need to be trimmed approximately once a month and groomed to personal taste. The donated hairs will last a lifetime.
