session is all that is required.
Where does the donor hair come from?
How is the procedure done?
The donor hair is extracted one follicle at a time from
either your scalp or your leg. The donor is usually taken from a site that furnishes
finer rather than coarser hair; finer hair is a better "match" for
eyebrow hair. Donor hair is transplanted micro surgically 1 or 2 hairs
at a time. Each graft is placed into an incision prepared for it. The
use of single hairs or micrografts permits meticulous adherence to the
eyebrow contour for a natural appearance.
Is the result natural?
Yes, they are your own naturally growing hair. In many cases,
they are more beautifully shaped and contoured than what you were born
with. See photos below.
How long will it take before I see
Hair grows in cycles so the effect is not immediate. It will take
4-6 months before the new hairs start to grow in your eyebrow or
Are the new hairs permanent?
Post operative maintenance ?
Yes in most cases. Sometimes a small maintenance session may be
required after a few years but that is rare. For some individuals,
occasional trimming as well as "contouring" of the transplanted eyebrows
or eyelashes may be required until the grafts start to form their own

pain and possibly swelling in some patients. Patients should avoid

the International Society of Hair Restoration Society, "the cause
of eyebrow/eyelash loss is evaluated in medical history and examination
prior to consideration of hair restoration:
- Systemic or local
disease that causes hair loss must be under control to assure that
hair restoration can succeed
plucking (trichotillomania) must be treated to assure that restored
hair will not be plucked out
- Trauma, burns or
surgery may have resulted in formation of scar tissue;
reconstructive surgery may be necessary before eyebrow/eyelash
restoration. The degree of eyebrow loss may vary from complete to
partial; the degree of loss may be a consideration in selection of
the restoration procedure."

Dr. Alan Bauman's comment about
eyelash transplant procedure
transplantation is a delicate and intricate procedure, but a
very safe and effective way to enhance your eyelashes. We
harvest follicles from the scalp then transplant the follicles
into the eyelash area (the lid). Typically, we transplant 24
lashes per lid during a single session, which lasts about two
hours. We use a combination of topical anesthetic gel and The
Wand (a computerized injection) for a virtually painless
procedure. Recovery time is quick--typically a few days for the
swelling to go down. The lashes begin to grow either immediately
or after 6-12 weeks. Since the follicles are from the scalp, the
hairs they produce will need to be trimmed. In the vast majority
of cases, a single session is enough, but sometimes an
additional session of eyelash transplantation is needed if the
lashes are extremely sparse or short to begin with.
