Eyelash Transplant Surgery: Get your Confidence Back!


Eyelashes, no matter how tiny they are, tend to play an essential role in beautifying our eyes. If they did not, someone would not have dedicated their time and money to invent Eyelash Transplant in Dubai. Thick and long eyelashes have been a symbol of splendor for years. Moreover, they play an essential role in protecting the eyes from foreign objects, like dust particles.

Scarce or short lashes affect the overall facial appearance of a person. However, having light lashes or losing eyelashes should not be the end of the world for anyone. But unfortunately, people lose self-confidence and become doubtful of their appearance if they lack thick eyelashes.

Luckily now, no one has to stay without eyelashes due to circumstances beyond their control. Anyone can get new, long, and thick eyelashes through an Eyelash Transplant, available at Hair Transplant Dubai Clinic.

Causes of Eyelash Hair Loss

Complete or partial loss of eyelashes can happen due to a number of reasons. Some common causes are mentioned below:

  • Trauma
  • Genetics
  • Parasite infestations
  • Alopecia
  • Ingrown eyelashes
  • Sensitivity to mascara/eye makeup
  • Medications side-effects
  • Chemotherapy
  • Trichotillomania (urge to pull hair)

About Eyelash Transplants

An Eyelash Transplant in Dubai is relatively new in the cosmetic surgery world. According to a survey by the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery, it constitutes about 1.4% of all hair transplant procedures.

The eyelash extension surgery is a safe and effective treatment for short and stubby eyelashes. It provides a long-term solution for natural or accidental eyelash hair loss.

Eyelash transplants are performed in the same way as a scalp hair transplant. The procedure can be performed using the two popular techniques:

  1. Follicular Unit Extraction (FUE)
  2. Follicular Unit Transplant (FUT)

However, most surgeons and patients prefer FUE over FUT because it is less invasive.

During the procedure, the hair transplant surgeon will harvest healthy hair follicles from the donor site, i.e., the scalp’s backside. He/she will then transplant these grafts in the recipient region, i.e., the eyelid line.

Since it is a surgical procedure, it is performed under topical or local anesthesia. Generally, the entire procedure takes about 1-2 hours to complete. Moreover, in a single session, the surgeon can successfully transplant 25-50 hair follicles in each eyelid.


Preparing for an Eyelash Transplant

Besides restoring striking and beautiful eyes, an Eyelash Transplant in Dubai will also restore the patient’s confidence. However, before deciding to get an eyelash transplant, patients need to consider several factors. Some of these factors are as follows:

  • Mental Stability

Patients suffering from Trichotillomania – the urge to pull out hair, including eyelashes –might consider seeing professional help. A psychiatrist can help them out in this regard because Trichotillomania is a mental disorder, classified under Obsessive-Compulsive and Related Disorders.

  • Parasites Infestations

If a patient lacks eyelashes due to parasite infestations, getting rid of the infestations before the eyelash transplant is essential.

  • Excessive Smoking

Smoking is a habit that can easily interfere with the eyelash transplant process. It may take almost double the time to transplant the eyelashes if the patient smokes. So, if you are a smoker, quit smoking for at least a month before undergoing an eyelash transplant.

  • Eyelid Tumors

Since eyelid tumors can cause eyelashes to fall out, make sure a qualified doctor treats them before an eyelash transplant.

Eyelash Transplant Aftercare

Post-operative care is crucial for recovery and achieving the desired results after a cosmetic procedure. An expert surgeon tailors the post-op guideline according to every patient’s requirements.

Some general aftercare tips for an eyelash transplant are mentioned below:

  • Do not vigorously rub the treatment area.
  • Wash the eyelash region 24 hours after the transplant.
  • Keep the donor area clean for 24 hours after the transplant.
  • Do not touch the donor or recipient regions unnecessarily.
  • Protect the transplanted region from direct sun exposure for about a month.
  • Limit the swim and sauna time for about a month after the transplant.

Please note that these are only general instructions, and the surgeon will provide specific ones after the treatment. Patients must religiously follow these instructions to avoid any complications and achieve optimum results.


Eyelashes do more than just add to the overall charisma of a person. They have a more critical role in a person’s life because they act as sensors to foreign objects. Eyelashes play a huge role in protecting the eyes from any foreign objects, like dust, entering the eyes. It means they transmit an early warning to the brain when a foreign object is about to enter the eye. So, we don’t just need eyelashes to look pretty; we also need them to protect our eyes.

An Eyelash Transplant in Dubai is becoming popular day by day due to its minimally invasive nature and incredible results. Moreover, the procedure provides a number of benefits. Some significant benefits of this cosmetic procedure are mentioned below:

  • Long and thick eyelashes are a sign of beauty. An eyelash transplant allows patients to enhance their facial appearance with luscious eyelashes.
  • Lack of eyelashes can easily interfere with self-esteem levels as well as self-confidence. With the help of an eyelash transplant, patients can regain confidence and boost their self-esteem.
  • An eyelash transplant provides long-lasting results.
  • The procedure is safe and effective.
  • Since donor hair follicles are taken from the patient’s own scalp, they match the eyelashes’ color and texture.


There are no severe downsides to eyelashes transplants except the regular maintenance. Since the hairs are taken from the head, they will keep growing, unlike eyelash hair. So, patients will need regular follow-up sessions to keep the eyelashes at the desired length. Moreover, they will have to curl them manually like natural eyebrows as the transplanted hairs are usually straight.
