Watch the TODAY Show Video.
This month’s W Magazine‘s beauty editor, Jane Larkworthy, discussed Dr. Bauman’s use of the eyelash transplant procedure to help women achieve thicker, longer and more dense lashes permanently–using their own transplanted hair follicles. Other options, such as ‘eyelash conditioners’ were mentioned. Eyelash transplantation is a relatively quick procedure using local anesthesia, requiring about an hour per eyelid. Minimal discomfort and minor swelling can be expected, but most patients ‘head out to the mall’ after their procedure that same day. Dr. Bauman performs eyelash transplantaion on a weekly basis for patients as part of his specialized hair transplant practice. Dr. Bauman pioneered the ‘double-implantation’ technique allowing patients to achieve a higher density of lashes than with older, more traditional techniques.

EYELASH TRANSPLANT INFORMATION
Eyelash Transplant: 6 weeks post-op
Eyelash Transplantation Information
Eyelash transplantation can be used to replace eyelashes that have been damaged by trauma, or to enhance existing eyelashes that are otherwise short and/or sparse. The use of the single-follicle hair transplantation technique enables new, living and growing eyelashes to be permanently restored to the eyelid using microsurgery. Procedure:
Using comfortable, computerized local anesthesia (The Wand®), the procedure is completed in less than two hours in the office/out-patient setting. Hair follicles from the back of the scalp (‘donor area’) are harvested and then implanted into the eyelid. Absorbable stitches are used to seal the donor area, which remains undetectable both during and after the healing process. Usually 24 to 40 or more lashes can be placed per eyelid during a session. The implanted follicles (like the seeds of a plant) will grow and produce hair permanently. The newly growing lashes will possess the same characteristics as scalp hair. The lashes will need to be routinely trimmed and curled. An ‘eyelash perm’ is recommended for those patients with straighter hair.
Medication for pain relief is provided as well as medication to reduce swelling. It is recommended that the patient have transportation to and from the office. Several hours after the procedure, some mild discomfort may be experienced in the donor area, as well as the eyelid. Patients are instructed in the gentle post-op care and cleansing of the eyelid and lashes. Some mild swelling and/or bruising in the eyelid area may last about 10 days. The absorbable stitches may take up to one month to dissolve completely. It is recommended that eye makeup (including mascara) be kept to an absolute minimum during the immediate post-op healing period (1 week). Some patients may require an additional session of eyelash transplantation to reach their restoration goal. Eyelash transplantation, trichotillomania (hair-pulling) and trauma:
Eyelash transplantation CAN be used to restore eyelashes damaged by trauma, ‘over-plucking,’ or even the hair pulling disease, trichotillomania. However, patients with untreated trichotillomania cannotundergo eyelash transplantation. If the trichotillomania remains untreated or recurs, hair pulling can damage the transplanted lashes. Eyelash transplantation and alopecia totalis/universalis:
Patients with alopecia totalis or alopecia universalis are NOT candidates for eyelash transplantation.

Eyelash Transplant featured in Brazilian Plastic Surgery Magazine
Dr. Bauman’s Eyelash Transplants were recently featured inRevista Plástica & Beleza(Brazil 2009); Implante de cílios o transplante de cílios… Download Plástica & Beleza – O Universo da Cirurgia Plástica e Estética or read the excerpt below…Cílios de longo alcanceSe aquela poderosa máscara para cílios não está fazendo milagres para seu visual, pode ser que sua situação seja uma pouco mais delicada e a indicação seja mesmo o transplante de cílios. Conheça mais dess a técnicaUma breve volta por uma loja de cosméticos mostra o valor que as mulheres dão aos cílios. Basta notar a imensa variedade de marcas e modelos de máscaras para cílios que alongam, dão volume, curvam, colorem… Vale tudo para valorizar o olhar. O problema é que algumas mulheres não conseguem o efeito desejado nem com o mais poderoso dos makes por terem falhas ou ausência de fios na região, cílios curtos ou com pouco volume. A solução nesse caso é o transplante de cílios, uma cirurgia pouco divulgada no Brasil. Isso mesmo, assim como existe o transplante capilar para resolver a calvície, existe também a cirurgia para resolver o problema na região dos olhos. O conceito é o mesmo: retirar fios de uma área para implantar em outra.
Fio-a-fioA área doadora de fios é a região da nuca. Como eles geralmente são longos, existe uma técnica exclusiva para essa situação. “A faixa retirada é preparada no microscópio para a separação dos folículos que serão implantados. Para a implantação são usados os fios de cabelo compridos que são passados pela borda das pálpebras como se fossem linhas de costura, deixando as raízes implantadas. Então, são cortados no comprimento desejado”, explica a dermatologista Christiane Graf Guimarães, especialista em reconstrução e transplante capilar (PR).Caso os fios de cabelo sejam curtos, a técnica de implantação é feita como no transplante convencional. “Os folículos são removidos do couro cabeludo e implantados na linha dos cílios, um ou dois por vez”, explica o cirurgião plástico americano Alan J. Bauman. “Hoje, podemos transplantar mais de 100 cílios por pálpebra”, complementa o médico.A anestesia usada é local com sedação e os exames pré-operatórios seguem a mesma rotina de outras cirurgias.Read More… Transplante de Cílios|Plástica & Beleza
