Eyelash transplantation is usually performed by extracting the hair follicles on the back of the scalp using FUE as in regular hair transplantation. However, the scalp does not need to shaved or not many grafts have to be extracted as in hair transplantation.
The necessary number of grafts are extracted but they are not immediately transplanted as in hair transplantation.
The grafts are first separated, then designed, and made thinner in an eyelash transplant. They are then transferred to the recipient area.
