Boca Raton, FL—Dr. Alan J. Bauman, Founder and Medical Director of Bauman Medical Group of Boca Raton, FL, is now offering eyelash transplantation in his hair restoration practice.
Advanced techniques in hair restoration allow the transplantation of single-follicle skin grafts. These grafts, harvested from the patient’s own scalp, can be used to redistribute living and growing hair to the eyelids for those who are looking to enhance or restore their eyelashes.
Patients who may benefit are those who have lost their eyelashes through trauma or trichotillomania (hair-pulling), as well as those who are looking for an increase in the number or length of their eyelashes.
The procedure is performed under comfortable, computer-assisted local anesthesia (using The WAND®), and typically takes no more than ninety minutes from start to finish. Cosmetic recovery of the area takes about 1 week and post-op discomfort is minimal. The transplanted eyelashes are shed one week after the procedure with the new lashes beginning to grow in about four weeks. The new lashes are lasting, but need to be periodically trimmed and trained to curl appropriately.*
The Bauman Medical Group, P.A. specializes in state-of-the-art medical and surgical hair restoration for men and women. Alan J. Bauman, M.D., Founder and Medical Director, utilizes the finest medical equipment and the latest artistic hair transplantation procedures to treat those experiencing hair loss.
