EYELASH TRANSPLANT


EYELASH TRANSPLANT

Overview
alt
Artificial eyelashes require frequent short-term maintenance and are often inconvenient. In some cases, an allergic reaction results from the use of glue. Repeated artificial eyelash extensions may lead to traction alopecia.

Eyelash transplantation is technique to create longer, thicker and denser eyelashes. In eyelash transplantation using follicular unnit extraction (FUE) technique, each hair follicular unit (FU) is harvested one by one from the scalp in the back of the head using a special harvester. The FU is trimmed and implanted into margin of the eyelid. New hairs will grow from the implanted FUs to produce new eyelashes with desired length, thickness and density.

Procedure
alt
Duration: 2-3 hours
Anaesthesia: Local anaesthesia
When to Go Home after Procedure: Immediately after procedure
Back to Work: 3-5 days
Technique: We practice follicular unit extraction (FUE) technique. No incision is made on the donor site. Instead donor hair follicles are extracted one by one in the donor area. As such there will be no surgical scars left behind in the donor site. The extracted hair follicles will be prepared and implanted one by one into the brow by using either a implanter or needle. The transplanted hair will live and grow in the brow and recreate a brow according to individual desired shape, thickness and length.

Recovery
alt
  • Apply antibiotic ointment three times a day for one week
  • Swelling and some bruising of the eyelid may occur for one week
  • The transplant hair may shed in 2-3 weeks after surgery, and new eyelashes will grow after 2 months
  • The transplanted hair will grow continuously and required trimming once every one to two weeks to maintain optimal length and daily curling to maintain the attractive curvature of the eyelashes
