An eyelash transplant is a minimally invasive, outpatient procedure that transplants hairs one-by-one from a person’s donor area (usually the back of their head) to the eyelids, to address thinning or non-existent eyelashes. It is virtually painless and can be completed in one day. It leaves no scarring in the donor area and is 100% natural, undetectable and permanent once complete.
If your eyelashes have been lost due to trauma or other conditions, Dr. Harris can help. Using state-of-the-art equipment and employing his years of experience, he can perform eyelash transplant surgery to restore a beautiful, natural appearance.

What factors should I consider when choosing an eyelash transplant surgeon?
It is important to choose an experienced hair transplant surgeon for an eyelash transplant. Identifying the optimum donor site from the head is crucial for the end result to look natural. A procedure which is done incorrectly can result in trichiasis (eyelash misdirection), which means the lash follicles have an unnatural orientation, direction, position or curl, which can look worse than no lashes at all. Dr. Harris exercises extreme precision in lash spacing, orientation and curl, resulting in natural restoration. Schedule a consultation with Dr. Harris to discuss eyelash surgery today.
