Eyelash Transplant Surgery

Beauty can now literally be "in" the eye of the beholder.

Jodie Hussey, an eyelash transplant patient, said "You can get your nose done, you can get any kind of plastic surgery, but who would have ever thought of eyelash transplants?"

The Surgery takes hairs and follicles from the back of the scalp and implants them into the eyelids.

Tired of short lashes, Jodie opted for the surgery.

She said, "Every time we put makeup on to go out to a special event, you have to put these false eyelashes on that get stuck in your eye, and the glue and they do damage to your eyelashes."

Dr. Alan Bauman first removes a small patch of Jodie's hair, with approximately 100 follicles.

Then under a microscope, a technician separates each individual lash and skin graft.

Using local anesthesia, the meticulous procedure begins.

An hour and a half later, Jodie has fifteen more lashes per eye.

The results are permanent and differ for each person.

Dr. Alan Bauman, a hair restoration, stated "So if your scalp hair is very straight, the implanted lashes will grow very straight. So the lashes will need to be trained and trimmed and curled to get them growing in the right direction."

Luckily for Jodie, her hair has a natural subtle curl.

The perfect wave for the long, luscious lashes she has always dreamed of.
