Can I Make My Eyelashes Bigger and Better with Surgery?

Can I Make My Eyelashes Bigger and Better with Surgery?

updated

Hair growth all over your body changes with age. Hair follicles replenish at a slower rate as your age increases. In addition, the growing span of the hair diminishes; this means that the hair does not grow as long as it did when you were younger. The reduced growth can affect the hair on your head and on your eyelashes.

The best solution for thin, short, and sparse eyelashes is the lash transplant treatment. Eyelash transplant surgery is a permanent surgical solution for women who are unable to grow their own lashes due to hair follicle injury, trauma, or burns. During the two-hour procedure, your doctor will take a small section of hair from a donor site, usually on the back of your head. While the patient is under local anesthesia with oral sedation, the hairs and roots taken from the donor site are transplanted under the eyelid. The result is longer, fuller eyelashes.

Dr. Kimberly Henry is a San Francisco cosmetic surgeon that performs facelift and other procedures.
