A cosmetic surgeon's decade of experience performing eyelash transplantation Details Title A cosmetic surgeon's decade of experience performing eyelash transplantation Contributor(s) Duplantis, Kathryn (author)Cosío-Lima, Ludmila (author)Reynolds, Katy (author)Hodges, Tabitha (author) Located In American Journal of Cosmetic Surgery ISSN 0748-8068 Date 2007 Abstract Introduction: Single-hair grafts to the eyelids, performed using a very challenging technique, offer cosmetic surgery patients a natural-looking solution for alopecia of the eyelid due to various causes, ranging from overcurling and trauma to systemic and metabolic processes. The technique described in this article requires the cosmetic surgeon to have a vast experience in both hair transplantation and eyebrow transplantation. Methods: We present a technique that requires simple instrumentation and the aid of one well-trained assistant. The procedure has been performed on 20 male and 350 female patients over a 10-year period. Results: The procedure has resulted in a mean graft survival percentage of 95%. The technique produces cosmetically pleasing outcomes, and complications are rare. Conclusions: A challenging technique for eyelash transplantation can successfully effect a pleasing and natural look for cosmetic surgery patients.
