This procedure can be done by the FUE technique, but most importantly requires the careful making of recipient sites for the hairs that will determine the direction and angulation of growth, as well as the aesthetic designing of what should be natural appearing eyebrows that complement the rest of the patient’s facial features.

Eyelashes are the primary way potentially damaging dust motes and debris are kept away from the delicate surface of the eye.
Eye lash transplants are similar to hair transplant surgery. Living hair follicles will be taken from a donor site and implanted on the lid of the eyes where eyelashes are sparse or missing. Hair follicles are harvested from the back of the head under local anesthesia. A numbing agent will be injected into the scalp and 100 or so donor hair follicles will be carefully removed and preserved for eyelash replacement.
The hair follicles will be prepared under a microscope to ensure that each follicle is intact and ready for transplant. The eyelid prepared to receive eye lash transplants will also be numbed with a small amount of injectable anesthetic. The prepared follicles will then be carefully transplanted to the areas of the eyelid needing extra lashes, using a microsurgical technique to ensure specific placement. After a period of healing, the eye lash transplants will then begin growing normally.
