…Fake eyelashes are a thing of the past?


People do crazy things in the name of beauty. A “plug and sew” technique for transplanting eyelashes is catching on as the new cosmetic surgery of choice, giving those who can afford to pay the $3000 per eye a new set of longer eyelashes that grow just like normal hair (because it is normal hair, taken from the patient’s own head). The procedure was pioneered by the hair loss industry, and soon spread from burn victims to cosmetic surgery aficionados. According to one doctor who is doing the surgeries, “Eyelash transplantation does for the eyes what breast augmentation does for the figure”. So if you’ve been looking for longer, fuller, and slightly more painful eyelashes, your day has come.
