No More False Eyelashes
A new surgical procedure might just be the next big thing to hit the Hollywood set in the name of youth and beauty: eyelash transplants. No longer will women look to false eyelashes to meet their expectations of beauty because they can have them permanently enhanced. The lashes are put on using the same "plug and sew" technique used in regular hair transplants for balding men and about 30-40 lashes are individually sewn onto the eyelid. Only a handful of surgeons use the technique, but some say that the enhancement should catch on quickly. "Eyelash transplantation does for the eyes what breast augmentation does for the figure," said one surgeon. Only local anesthetic and light sedation are necessary, and the whole surgery only costs about $3,000 per eye.
