The Eyelashes Have It. If they don't, call eyelash transplant artist Dr. Alan Bauman of Boca Raton, FL. He can help you find someone in your area who can perform eyelash transplants. It's a great idea if the eyelashes have been lost to cancer or burns. You may suffer mild infection and bruising, and your eyelashes will fall out and need to be re-transplanted but other than that, and the $3,000 per eye price tag, you'll have a great set of long, luxurious eyelashes.

What happens is that hair follicles get harvested from your scalp, and sown in one by one to your eyelid. They will grow like the hair on your head, so they need to be trimmed, curled and maybe even dyed.

This surgery has become very popular recently. Dr. Baumann said he's seen a 300% increase in the number of eyelash transplant operations being performed, and he's busy training doctors all over the country to perform the surgery.

I enjoyed your blog entry on the eyelash transplant procedure. Although, we've never had a patient end up with eyelash loss from the procedure (only longer, thicker lashes!). And, yes you will need to trim them... If your readers would like more information regarding the risks and benefits of eyelash transplantation, have them visit
Also, one of my recovered trichotillomania (brow/lash-pulling) patients who had the eyelash and eyebrow transplant procedure has her own blog: And, they can always email me directly,
