Eyelash Hair Transplants in Turkey

Eyelash hair transplants in Turkey, also called eyelash implants, represent quite recent procedures in which the growing and living eyelid lashes are permanently restored. Initially, the procedure was utilized to treat eyelids that didn’t have eyelashes because of different conditions, such as alopecia, genetics, or trauma from burns or cancer surgery.

Being a quite delicate operation, eyelash hair transplants in Turkey consist of transplanting hairs, commonly from the scalp, on the eyelids. These newly transplanted eyelids confer a natural look because they are transplanted one by one. Because they continue to grow an entire lifetime, they have to be trimmed and curled regularly.

Eyelash hair transplants will understandably have a different cost in comparison to the hair transplant price in Turkey. The approach is different for these patients, however, the basic principles remain the same: moving hair from one part of the body to the eyelash area. If this procedure interests you, you can discuss more about the estimated costs and what to expect with our team.

Eyelash hair transplant methods in Turkey

When performing an eyelash hair transplantation in Turkeyour surgeons follow specific guidelines, such as:

•    This type of hair restoration is performed under local anesthesia. A mild sedation helps the patient to relax;
•    The surgical device pinholes the eyelid margin, after which a hair graft is transplanted into it;
•    The grafts are placed at the appropriate distance between each other to avoid trichiasis (eyelash ingrowth or introversion);
•    A complete eyelash hair transplant in Turkey is performed in one to three hours. The desired outcome might require one to three sessions, depending on the patient’s particular characteristics, surgical technique and the desired look.

Eyelash hair restoration procedure in Turkey

An eyelash hair restoration procedure in Turkey consists of transplanting from 25 to even 50 hairs on each superior eyelid. The number of transplanted hairs depend on the current amount of eyelid hair and the desired thickness and size. 

The risks involving this type of operation are low, being common to all hair transplants in general

The donor site, which is one inch (2.54 cm) long, commonly heals as an incision smaller than 0.07 inch (2 mm) wide, being easily hidden with the existing hair.
