http://www.eyelash-transplant.com – Chemotherapy for cancer often causes eyelash loss and weak lashes. NBC’s Janice Lieberman follows cancer-survivor, Veronica Garner, before, during and after her eyelash transplant procedure. Dr. Bauman discusses the increasing demand for the cosmetic and reconstructive eyelash transplant procedure which implants living and growing eyelashes into the eyelid. NBC’s TODAY Show features Dr. Alan Bauman’s Eyelash Transplants in a cancer patient with eyelash loss from her chemotherapy treatments.
Eyelash Transplant For Eyelash Loss Due to Chemotherapy
NBC’s TODAY show feature a story about Dr. Bauman’s eyelash transplant procedures. Veronica, Bauman patient, is a breast-cancer survivor who underwent chemotherapy years ago. Unfortunately, her lashes never grew back to their fullest after chemo. Now, years later, she’s looking to regain (and regrow) those lost lashes using a new hair transplant procedure called eyelash transplantation. Janice Lieberman follows Veronica through her eyelash transplant procedure with Dr. Bauman as well as her eyelash care: trimming, tinting, perming and curling.
Eyelash transplantation takes about an hour per eye under comfortable local anesthesia while the patient is awake. Today, 60-100 lashes can be transplanted using Dr. Bauman’s advanced eyelash implant techniques. Healing takes approximately one week during which time, manipulation of the eyelashes are prohibited as well as the use of mascara, eyeliner and eye shadow. Transplanted lashes are shed after a week or so, then the implanted lashes will begin to grow–eventually needing to be routinely trimmed and curled.
Eyelash transplantation uses hair follicles harvested from the back of the scalp to restore living and growing eyelashes for patients who have weak, thin, sparse or damaged lashes. For many women who have undergone chemotherapy or used eyelash extensions, their eyelashes have become weak. Some women lose their eyelash density, length and diameter with age, depending on health issues, age and genetics and turn to eyelash extensions. When performed improperly, eyelash extensions can cause eyelash loss. Dr. Bauman has authored several textbook chapters on his multiple-follicle eyelash implant “sewing” technique which expands on Dr. Gandleman’s eyelash transplant methods allowing more lashes to be implanted with each transplant procedure.
