Reaons for Eyebrow and Eyelash Transplant Surgery

Eyebrow and eyelash extensions has become a trending procedure amongst both men and women. You often do not realize the full impact that eyebrows or eyelashes can make on the total facial appearance until you see a person without them. Loss of eyebrow or eyelash hair can make an individual feel very self-conscious about his or her appearance, and luckily new hair transplant restoration techniques can often restore these areas. 

Having longer and thicker lashes is one of the universal signs of beauty. Reuters News regarding the popularity of eyelash transplantation interviewed Dr. Wasserbauer, admitting patients are overwhelming with requests, “I have been getting a ton of eyelash inquiries … If I had $10 dollars for every consultation, I’d be a rich woman.” See eyelash extensions pictures here.

Successfully used for many years, hair transplant restoration can fill out patchy or partial eyebrows, to restore absent eyebrows, and even camouflage scars within the eyebrow area. Eyelash restoration is a more recent procedure. A hair transplant doctor who specializes exclusively in surgical hair restoration should perform the procedure.

There are several reasons eyelash and eyebrow hair loss occurs. These occurrences are most commonly associated with:

  • 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 the eyebrow and eyelash extensions 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.
