Aside from achieving your perfect eye makeup, it’s also an option for those who have no eyelashes due to alopecia, genetics, or trauma.
For an eyelash enhancement, you may choose between surgical and nonsurgical methods.
If you wish to undergo a surgical method, you’ll have to do an eyelash hair transplantation process. The process is similar to a hair transplant surgery. Here’s how cosmetic surgeons usually perform it:
If you’re hesitant to undergo an eyelash enhancement surgery, you can try the eyelash enhancement serum. One popular brand for this option is LATISSE®. It’s the only prescription eyelash enhancer.

An eyelash lengthening must be done by a certified and expert cosmetic surgeon to accomplish the best results. An unqualified practitioner may lead to surgical complications and unsatisfying results. Keep these factors in mind when choosing a doctor for your eyelash lengthening.
Before the surgery, arrange an appointment with your surgeon for your initial consultation. In this meeting, you’ll both discuss everything you need to know about the operation. This consultation is your chance to ask your surgeon anything you want.
He'll also provide you with pre-operative instructions that you must carefully follow. Here are some of these instructions:
If you choose to undergo an eyelash enhancement surgery, you may notice little crusts around the transplanted hair on the first 3 to four days after the operation. You may also observe redness and a bit of swelling on your eyelids. These may be uncomfortable, but they’ll fade after over a week after the operation.
You may continue doing your normal daily activities a week after your procedure under normal circumstances.
The surgical stitches used to close the small incisions on the hair follicle donor site will dissolve so your surgeon doesn’t need to remove them.
If you underwent this surgical method, the transplanted hair would fall out, usually after two weeks. Don’t worry if this happens. This process is the new follicle’s ‘resting period.' Your eyelashes will regrow in about three months after the procedure. Regrowth may differ from one person to another. Some experiences regrowth of the eyelashes right away. The results of eyelash enhancement surgery are permanent.
Keep in contact with your surgeon so that your progress will be monitored, and in case you experience irritations and discomfort after the operation.
For those who use serum treatment for eyelash lengthening, results are usually long-lasting. Just make sure you apply the serum on a regular basis. If you discontinue the serum treatment, your eyelashes may return to its pretreatment appearance.
