The Wonder of Eyelash Implants

POSTED: 04 April 2013

Considering how small they are, eyelashes have a surprisingly big impact on the overall appearance of people’s faces. Long, full lashes help to ensure that eyes look defined and open.

If you’re suffering eyelash loss, you might be feeling deeply self-conscious. However, the good news is, help is at hand. You don’t have to simply accept your fate. Instead, you can seize the initiative and once again benefit from the lashes you desire.

Why do eyelashes fall out?

Hair loss more generally is widely talked about in the media and among people, but the loss of eyelashes doesn’t usually get a mention. This can make the phenomenon all the more distressing for those who suffer from it.

There are a number of possible causes. For example, physical trauma: facial injuries and scarring caused by car accidents, industrial accidents and chemical burns can lead to lashes disappearing. Also, eyelid tattoos pose a risk to these hairs. Meanwhile, traction alopecia is another potential cause.

Also, certain surgical procedures, radiotherapy and chemotherapy can result in eyelashes falling out and some people suffer from trichotillomania, which is a compulsive plucking of eyebrows, eyelashes and other body hair.

Your options

Whatever the cause of your personal lash loss, you might have decided that now’s the time to do something about it. The good news is, you’ve come to the right place. Here at the Crown Cosma Clinic, we’re experts when it comes to hair loss treatments and surgery and should be perfectly placed to help you.

You can be considered for eyelash surgery under two categories. Firstly, you may require reconstructive eyelash transplantation to correct eyelash loss due to trauma or disease. Secondly, maybe you’re looking for aesthetic eyelash transplantation to achieve an enhancement of your existing lashes.

Gaining popularity

It’s fair to say that hair surgery of this kind is relatively new, but as the availability and success of the technique becomes better known, more people are considering it as an option. After all, the permanent enhancement of eyelash length and density is an appealing prospect.

The full low down

If you’re interested in these techniques and think you might be able to benefit from them, it’s well worth contacting our friendly and helpful team. We’re a surgeon led, patient orientated clinic and you can rest assured that we don’t believe in using salesmen or advisors for consultations.

The process of discussing your needs and making decisions will be relaxed and you will feel empowered and in control. You can raise any concerns you have regarding the hair restoration techniques during a one-to-one consultation with Dr Shahmalak himself.

A new chapter

If you do go ahead and decide to get the surgery, you may be able to enter into a new chapter in your life. Your confidence might rise thanks to your new lashes and this could have knock-on effects both professionally and personally.
