Eyelash Hair Transplant Surgery in Delhi
Eyelash transplant is being done for the eyelash loss due to injury or to cosmetically enhance existing hairs which are short, sparse. The use of single-follicle hair transplantation techniques enables new, living and growing eyelashes to be comfortably and permanently restored to the eyelids.
Eyelash Transplant Surgery Procedure
The procedure is done in local anesthesia and completed in approximately two hours in out-patient setting. Hair follicles from the back of the scalp (‘donor area’) are harvested and then meticulously implanted into the eyelid. Approximately 30 lashes or more can be placed per upper eyelid during a session. The implanted follicles will grow and produce new lashes permanently, starting as early as six weeks. The newly growing lashes will possess the same characteristics as the donor scalp hair.
The protective goggles (provided) should be worn while sleeping in the post op period. Mild swelling and/or bruising in the eyelid area may last up to two weeks. Mascara and other eye-makeup should be completely avoided during the immediate post-op healing period (approx. 1 week).
Some patients may require an additional session of eyelash transplantation to reach their restoration goals. Implanted lashes typically shed within two weeks, then begin to regrow starting at six weeks. Approximately 80-90% of the transplanted lashes can be expected to grow. A complete cosmetic result can be expected by 12 months.
