Eyelash Transplant procedures were initially used for trauma patients. Loss of eyelashes allow for the entry of dirt and dust into the eye area. This eyelash transplant patient, Peggy Martin, was in a car accident and nearly lost her life 15 yrs ago. She had damage to her eyebrows and eyelashes after a motor vehicle accident when her car was nearly crushed by a tractor-trailer. Dr. Bauman used eyelash transplants to give her back her lashes in 2002.
Eyelash loss can occur from trauma, disease, illness (like trichotillomania), eyelash extensions as well as from age and heredity. Depending on whether eyelash follicles exist in the lid, surgical or non-surgical treatments are available to replace or enhance eyelash growth, restoring a more symmetrical and aesthetically pleasing eye area.
