How to Prepare For Eyelash Hair Transplant?

eyelashes hair transplants

Eyelash Hair Transplant is helping men and women get their desired eyelash thickness. Many people lives their entire life without knowing that eyelashes can be restored as well as enhanced, but you should not live a life of negligence. If you have naturally sparse eyelashes or you have lost them due to any reason, don’t waste time and money anymore trying temporary fixes, such as artificial eyelashes and eyelash extensions. These products further worsen the condition by damaging existing hairs.

If you are seeking a safe, effective and permanent solution for thin, sparse eyelashes, look no further than Eyelash Hair Transplant surgery. It is an FDA approved procedure that transplants hair from the back of the head into the eyelids to enhance thickness of eyelashes. Since donor hairs are taken from the scalp, they grow well and long, allowing you to maintain your desired eyelash length. But to get the most out of your eyelash transplant, it is important that you prepare well for the procedure.

5 Tips for Eyelash Hair Transplant Surgery Preparation:

Like any other surgery, eyelash transplant surgery also has several Dos and Don’ts that you have to follow as you gear up to go under the knife to restore thicker and fuller lashes. Here are some of the tips you should follow as you prepare for eyelash hair transplant:

  1. No Blood Thinners:

Stop all blood thinner medications as well as herbal supplements. Medicines you should avoid include aspirin, ibuprofen, warfarin, Coumadin, plavix and advil. Supplements that should be discontinued at least two weeks before eyelash transplant include Vitamin E, Omega-3, garlic and fish oil.

  1. No Smoking:

Quit smoking 10 to 14 days prior to the surgery. Even a single cigarette can adversely affect your surgery as well as recovery process and the outcome of the transplant. Nicotine and carbon monoxide in cigarettes are two poisonous substances that hamper supply of blood and oxygen to different parts of the body, including eyelids. This ultimately affects recovery process and the overall outcome of the surgery.

  1. No Hard Drinks:

Alcoholic beverages and drugs have a similar impact on the surgery and its outcome as that of smoking. Therefore, it is strongly recommended to avoid hard drinks and drugs as you prepare for any surgery, including hair transplant surgeries. Stop drinking at least a week before the transplant.

  1. Limit Your Coffee Intake:

It is also recommended to avoid coffee and other caffeinated beverages during the last 36 to 48 hours prior to the surgery. Soft drinks, especially black colas, should also be avoided as you prepare for the eyelash hair transplant.

  1. Avoid Strenuous Exercises:

Most surgeons ask their patients to avoid strenuous exercises such as weight lifting during the last 2-3 days before a hair transplant and this includes eyelash hair transplant as well. Discuss with your doctor if you can continue your workout routine until surgery or you need to make some modifications.
