What is an eyelash hair transplant?
Eyelash hair transplant is a procedure where our doctor extracts healthy hair follicles from the back of your scalp and implants them into your eyelids. It helps to give you a fuller look with longer eyelashes.
It is an effective solution for those who do not have an adequate amount of hair in their eyelash area. Similarly, it will work for those people who have lost their eyelashes due to specific trauma or any disease. Along with the thick density, eyelash hair restoration works very well for people who have genetically scanty eyelashes.
What is the procedure of an eyelash hair transplant?
The eyelash hair transplant procedure requires about 50 to 100 hair for successful treatment in each eyelid. The number differs depending upon the existing amount of hair in your eyelids and your density requirements. The treatment goes according to the following steps:
- Application of local anaesthesia and sedation
- Extraction of healthy hair grafts from the sides of your head
- The extraction procedure will be either FUE or FUT
- Implantation of newly extracted hair grafts to your eyelids one by one
While doing the surgery, our doctor uses a curved needle for the implantation. The whole procedure needs 2 to 4 hours in total.
What is the recovery time duration?
It is normal to experience swelling and bruising in your eyelids for a few days after the surgery. The newly transplanted hairs will fall out in a month. Within four to six months, your new eyelashes will grow ultimately. You can see the noticeable difference at least after 12 months.
What are the benefits of eyelash transplant surgery?
The benefits of eyelash transplant surgery are as follows-
- It gives you the long-lasting solution
- Newly transplanted hairs on your eyelids look like your natural hair
- You will get the length and density you always wanted
