If you are a man, chances are you know nothing about eyelashes or lash beauty. Eyelashes are usually a minor detail that men do not focus on, or at least they do not think they do. For women, the topic of eyelashes is an entirely different matter. If women suddenly stopped taking care of their eyelashes or accentuating them, men would certainly notice. And the fact is women spend a considerable large amount of time thinking about what to do with their eyelashes. Some of them will not even leave the house without giving their lashes a bit of curl. Eyelashes are extremely important to achieving a particular look because they serve the purpose of enhancing the eyes. And the eyes, after all, are the key feature on any woman's face that they want to draw attention to. Up until last years, women had to rely on eyelash curlers and fake eyelashes to get the look that they wanted. But now, thanks to new developments in medical technology, it is possible to get eyelash implants.
Keep in mind the eyelash implants are not for everyone. In fact, they were originally designed for women who had gone through chemotherapy and a resultless lack in eyelash hair. For the most part, this type of surgery is still reserved for patients with medical conditions that affect their eyelashes. You can however, find more doctors who are qualified to perform the surgery for cosmetic reasons as well. Some people would question why a woman would go to such lengths to get eyelashes. But it is entirely a personal choice, and some women feel that they're so lacking in the eyelash department that there is no other alternative.
The eyelash implant procedure is similar to that associated with getting hair plugs. A patient will have a portion of their skin and hair removed from the back of their head. Hair follicles will be taken and carefully implanted into the eyelash area. The whole time a patient will be wake and put under local anesthetic. There will not be much downtime at all associated with the surgery, but results should not be expected immediately. Usually a patient will have to wait several months for the hair to start growing in a natural way. And on top of that, they might have to end a period where the hair seems to fall out completely. But this is just part of the natural hair growth cycle, and in time eyelashes can be growing in the area just like they would normally.
